British Made Diaries and Calendars – Please choose a British made diary

A proper paper diary is silent and unobtrusive in use; it has no batteries to go flat; it doesn’t break if you drop it or tread on it; it helps you remember things because you have actually written them down; you can write in it during meetings and so on (when your smart phone will be outside or turned off!); and things don’t get mysteriously deleted. There is the risk of losing your paper diary of course, and unlike a smart phone will not require a passcode, which is something to bear in mind.

When you are getting your next diary, planner or calander please choose a British made one. Before buying, check the inside or back cover and see where the diary you are looking at is actually made (printed and bound).

British Made Diaries – Get a diary for next year that is made in the UK

It’s that time of the year when you will want to buy a diary for next year. When you are getting your 2015 diary please choose a British made diary. Before buying, check inside and see where the diary you are looking at is actually made (printed and bound).

Sadly this year neither John Lewis nor Clinton Cards seem to be stocking any Letts or any other British made diaries. I got my Letts 2015 “made in Great Britain” 2015 diary in WHSmith (most of the other diaries they had were foreign made though). Note that Collins (Colins Debden) diaries are all foreign made these days.

It is still very possible to choose a UK diary that is actually made (printed and bound) in the UK and you can find a selection here.

Buy a British made dairy for next year.

Letts UK

Don’t forget to make sure your diary for next year is made in Britain.

LETTS is the latest company to shift production back to Britain as rising costs in the Far East and improved technology back home have made manufacturing in this country attractive once again. Well done Letts. Letts make diaries, calendars, address books, visitor books and such. Letts do a range of diaries starting the week on a Sunday or a Monday, all made in the UK. Letts also own filofax. Letts have manufacturing facilities in Scotland and abroad.  Until recently Letts  products did not generally state country of origin, so you had to ask them direct if a product is made in the UK or not. I am pleased to say that for 2014 diaries Letts are clearly identifying which of their diaries are made in the UK with the words “Made in Great Britain” on the back.
