Traveler's Notebook Information & Sizing...

History & General Information

Originally created by the company Midori, and now made just north of Thailand by the Traveler's Company, (Standard & Passport size) Traveler's Notebooks are definitely not our own unique idea. A quick peruse over YouTube, Instagram and Pinterest and you will see a whole other world and community surrounding Traveler's Notebooks, all over the world! It is a book that I (Tiz) as a stationary nerd, fell completely in love with. 

Traveler's Notebooks are covers with an elastic band down the inside spine, as well as one that loops around the cover to keep it closed. Through the inside elastic band, the owner is able to insert "Inserts" - which range from Notebook Inserts (both templated and non-templated), wallet Plastic Inserts, Kraft Folder Inserts - the ideas and possibilities could go on. In most Traveler's Notebooks there will only be one spine elastic band - this is where the elastic Jump Bands come in handy - to help with adding additional inserts. To finish it off, the owner can customize their notebook however they would like with other accessories. 

PBS Traveler's Notebooks are made from Vinyl & Leatherette. Two pieces of the material are cut to approximate size, glued together, pressed, cut to size, stitched, hand hole-punched and fitted with eyelets, and finished with the binding of elastic. All of our PBS Traveler's Notebook, Notebook Inserts are printed, cut, folded, assembled, stapled and trimmed in house.  All accessories are sourced in, many of which have been generously donated.
