Each Exposition Notebook is made to order. Your notebook will ship in 3 to 5 days.
It's just a better wheel.
Seems like every week a new notebook or journal comes out that tries to reinvent the wheel (okay notebook). Each incredible advancement in paper notebook technology promises to change our lives. The perfect layout, the perfect planning system, guaranteed to make you faster, smarter, lighter, more productive, less stressed, taller. The thing is, the allure of a new system often wears off, and once that happens, you’re left with another unused notebook on a shelf.
The Exposition Notebook is something we’ve had in the works since day one. And since then, we knew we had no intention of reinventing the notebook. We wanted to make a notebook we'd use.
We set out to make the Exposition with a few non-negotiable ingredients in mind.
One, Durability: The Exposition is made to be carried, thrown in a bag, and taken on your biggest adventures. It’s made to be used, featuring a stiff board cover wrapped in environmentally-friendly fabric that will resist wear and stains and feel great in your hands. The linen adds a bit of grip. And to top it off, it has a Smyth-sewn binding to ensure the book will lay flat, and your pages will stay intact.
Two, Simplicity: We designed the Exposition to give you the space to explore your ideas and find your story. Its greatest feature is that it gets out of the way. We provide the canvas, the rest is up to you. It comes in your choice of blank, lined, or dot-grid pages.
Three, Paper: It matters. The Exposition Notebook comes with same tested and praised paper you find in our Pocket Staple and Prime Staple notebooks. It’s smooth so your fountain pens, gel pens, ballpoints, or favorite pencils glide across the page. Ink dries fast, so you can keep moving. It’s the perfect balance for a variety of media. We’ve seen people do some wild stuff with our notebooks, from water colors to spray paint.
Four, Community: We Make It Here. This has been the biggest hurdle. As many of you know, our relationships with our vendors, manufacturers, and our community are important to us. From the start, we set out to make something bigger than the products we sell. Every part of the Exposition Notebook is made in the U.S.A. From the text paper to the board and cover material. The text blocks are printed and sewn right here in our hometown of York, Pennsylvania, and then finished, by hand, right here at SSC HQ.
Five, Giving: Each Exposition Notebook sold equals a Story Supply Kit to a kid with a story to tell.
