Field Notes Dry Transfer

We’re a little slow on the uptake here, but better late than never. If you haven’t heard, the kraft-coated folks at Field Notes released a special dry transfer notebook kit. To explain the process the company commissioned an interesting and instructional video featuring Bryan and his mustache. If you feel so inclined you can buy yourself a kit here. We also will be offering these through the ACL shop soon — short sleeve yellow oxford shirt not included.

    I have a Field Notes notebook in my pocket at all times (Ive even written my father a letter using one) and I’ve been a fan of the past colors editions, but I have to say I thought this edition was really disappointing. The concept is interesting and all, it just doesn’t really appeal to me.

    I had these when i was a kid… yeah they got taken away from me.

    Wow, finally a use for all that old, terrible Letraset Presstype we (older folks) had to use in graphic design school. I must say, this is one retro item of which I have only horrible memories. I applaud Field Notes for all their craftiness, but I’ll stick to the click pens and regular editions.

    What a fabulously camp presentation – he gives Danny McBride a run for his money!

    OK so I read the comments on the video and this was a costumey mustache and not a real mustache. Everything I knew is a lie and I rescind my previous comment, guys.
    Kudos to them for pulling off a convincingly awkward costume.

    Does it come with a dry transfer moustache?

    that was so 60s-instructional-video-tastic. i half expected it to end with a “..and remember, only YOU can stop Communists!”

    Back in the 60s the graphic arts types (pun intended) called this Letraset; and it’s still around:

    I’m not big on field notes. Mostly it’s hype that’s selling their brand. With a little time and simple materials, you can make your own “Field Notes.” Not difficult.

    True, CB. I do this with old paper – leftovers from meetings and such – and make little sketchbooks for my kids. They love them and it’s repurposing old, used materials. I do love, however, how Moleskine and these guys are making pen-to-paper and sketching cool again. In an iPad world, that’s not small task.
