William Hannah Discbound Notebook/Planner - Update

It has been over a year since I did my initial review of the William Hannah A5 leather disc-bound notebook/planner.

A lot has happened since then, David Round (Owner of WH) has continued to work hard in developing the product and the brand in general.

In May 2016 we created a small but friendly Facebook user group for William Hannah. It has about 170 members, it has grown slowly in the last year with people doing the usual thing of sharing photos and asking questions etc.

David does the occasional live video to the group to bring us updates and show off new leather colours. Whilst these are live events, you can watch them at a later date if you missed them which is good.

I've recently ordered a paper punch that will work with this type of book, in my search for a suitable punch I discovered a few different types available. As with all punches it pays to do your research because of prices and availability can vary where ever you are in the world. (see the links at the end of this post)

My punch should be with me in the next couple of weeks. I'm looking forward to creating some of my own inserts for my WH notebook to try it out in different ways.

Other interesting news is that William Hannah is going to launch an A6 version of the William Hannah Notebook. The A6 model will have 6 discs compared to 8 discs on the A5, they will be the same diameter and the same spacing as the A5 model.

Once again there will be a selection of leather colour combinations available as 'off the shelf' models and like the A5 you will also be able to order bespoke combinations as well.

Look out for news on this new product on the William Hannah website, address below.

Like the A5 you will be able to order from William Hannah a selection of high quality paper packs in different styles for the A6 in the same way you can for the A5.

The paper supplied by William Hannah is of exceptional quality, no surprise really as David is a fountain pen fan!

Future Podcast Topics

In case you have been wondering about the Podcast.... Karine is now back in the USA and we will soon be getting started again on regular episodes.

So what would you like us to talk about? We are happy to discuss anything planner related, not just ring bound planners, any sort of paper planners and how you use them etc.

We have done 50 odd episodes already, nearly 60 if you count the ones we have done with other people or on our own.

We are sure there is plenty of scope for other topics we haven't yet covered, or to revisit ones we have previously covered but may be revisit them from a different angle.

So please leave your ideas in the comments below and we will do our best to add them to our list for the coming weeks.

If you want to look at previous episodes please visit this link for the podcast episodes.

Free for All Friday no. 453 by Nan

Let's color our worlds today!

Do you use colored pages or colored ink in your organizer? Is it an important part of your organization system, or do you do it just to delight the eye?

Or do you like to see things in black-and-white? Maybe you can't see certain colors very well, or you find color distracting.

Of course, since it's Friday, all ring-bound organizer discussion is welcome!
