FNC-17¬†marks the start of our fifth year of our Quarterly Editions. In that time, we‚Äôve explored a wide variety of papers, colors, and printing techniques, but with this new Expedition¬†edition, for the first time, we‚Äôve actually expanded the type of paper used in¬†our notebooks.
Aesthetically, you‚Äôll find an all-new design with plenty to like: a hi-visibility ‚ÄúAntarctic Survey Orange‚Äù front cover and ‚ÄúPolar Night Black‚Äù back cover, with a subtle varnish effect featuring a topographic map of Antarctica. The body pages feature our popular dot-graph¬†paper¬†printed in light gray.
But the real innovation here is the paper. It‚Äôs maybe not even fair to call it paper. The whole book is printed on¬†Yupo Synthetic paper,¬†an amazing water- and tear-proof paper extruded from polypropylene pellets in Chesapeake, Virginia.¬†
3¬Ω" √ó 5¬Ω"¬†3 Staples¬†Dot-Graph Paper
Note: Synthetic paper is nonporous and doesn‚Äôt absorb ink like our conventional papers. Ballpoint pens, pencils, or fine tip Sharpies work best.
