  1. Hello dear publisher,
    I just bought a paperblanks calendar 2013 “High button boot” (ISBN: 978-1-4397-2062-2) in Germany (D – 95444 Bayreuth: Buchhandlung Markgrafen). After peeling off the paperblank-pricesticker there remains a sticky substance on the back and front cover. That is truly annoying. Complayining to the bookshop won´t do as it isn´t their sticker, but the brand´s own. It should be possible to use adhesive material at the backside of stickers which do not ruin the looks and the touchb of the otherwise really nice calendar.
    Best regards, C. Nicodemus

    • Hello, Dr Nicodemus. Thank you for your comment. We’re sorry to hear of your disappointment with your recent purchase. We have spoken to our Production department about this and they have confirmed that our stickers are designed to be removed without leaving any residue. So we will be looking further into why this has happened. In the meantime, as you have been inconvenienced we’d like to discuss this with you further. If you could please send us an email to facebook@hartleyandmarks.com then we will answer any further questions you have and discuss how we can help you with this.

      All feedback and comments we receive are very important to us. Thank you for taking the time to get in touch.

  2. Hi there,
    I’ve just bought my 2013 Paperblanks weekly planner( Morris Windrush ISBN 978-1-4397-2085-1) and am surprised to discover there are no holidays ie. Christmas, Easter, Bank Holidays etc… marked in mine! Is this a permanent change? I’ve been using your weekly planners and diaries for about 6 years now and am very disappointed if this is the case. Please tell me I’ve got some misprint, as they are my absolute favourite planners and I don’t know what I’ll do without them!

    • Hi Catherine. Thanks for getting in touch with us. We’re sorry to hear you’re disappointed with your new dayplanner. Our dayplanners are created in different languages and for these specific-language-dayplanners the holidays are featured inside on their corresponding pages. We also produce a Generic English dayplanner for a number of different countries, and with these books the holidays are printed in a list at the front of the dayplanner and not inside. To help us answer your query and find out which type of dayplanner you have could you please send us an email to facebook@hartleyandmarks.com with your location and we will investigate this further for you.
      Kind regards,
      Paperblanks

  3. Dear friends

    I would like to know if you do work for other companies, I would like to design my own automotive range, do you do such thing?

    Thank you

  4. I just purchased one of your products here in Washington D.C. at the Smithsonian’s Renwick Gallery gift shop, and am happy I did. It was a gift to my partner, and he really likes it. We both have a question for you, however: please define “old leather” for us. Is this repurposed leather from leather items that had an earlier life and other purpose(s)? If so, what goes into the processing of the “old” leather to make it a useful commodity for you to then use?
    The purchased item, by the way, is labeled “Handtooled Ultra Wrap” and is a journal with lined pages.

    • Hi Terry,

      We’re happy to hear you like the book!

      To answer your question: Actually no part of the book (or any of the books we sell) are made with leather. The name “Old Leather” is a reference to the designs’ origins and influences. Our Old Leather covers were designed to evoke Renaissance-style covers and manuscripts made of fine Moroccan leather. To find out more about these designs’ influences you can read our blog article about the Old Leather collection (http://blog.paperblanks.com/2011/06/spotlight-old-leather/) or consult the text written on the endpaper in the back of your book.

  5. Hello,
    I have got a very strange question: Where can I buy a calendar of 2013 now?
    A seller in a bookshop in Germany told me that at the end of febuary, they send all calendars back to the publishers. So what are you doing with those books and is there a chance for me to get one of them?

  6. Hi, I looked up the mini day planners (week at a glance) and called every store you have listed. Not one carries this product, which is what I give several friends as Christmas presents. Help!

  7. I bought a livescribe 3 pen. My wife already has several paperblanks journals. I saw paperblanks journals on livescribes web sight. Will all paperblanks journals work with livescribe 3 pens?

    • Hi Don,

      The Livescribe technology is dependent upon a particular type of paper. Our partnership with Livescribe was a Limited Edition offer, resulting in Old Leather Black Moroccan and Handtooled Mini journals. They are both still available on the Livescribe website but there are no new Paperblanks books in production that can be used with a Livescribe pen.

      Hope you find a journal design you love to use with your Livescribe pen!
