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).

My top notebooks or the best notebooks in the world – my quest to find the perfect notebook

In my quest to find the perfect notebook, I have decided the ones below are the world’s best notebooks. It’s down to personal choice of course and your particular requirements at the time. I’ve tried to think about cost, quality (and in particular paper quality), looks, size (whether you need something lightweight and fairly small and slim or something larger with more space) and what I want from a notebook at the moment. Although was meant to be a kind of ‘top 10’ notebooks, there are more than 10 and the order does not really matter as these are all great British made notebooks.

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.
