    Hole Punch for Field Journal Notebook?

    I was sure I had seen this on the forum, but can't find it.

    What sort of a paper punch works for the Field Journal Notebook? What do people recommend?

    Thanks!

    HI bbcamp,
    I've been using a single hole punch for two or three pages at a time. I have access to a simple adjustabble three hole punch too. The kind found in offices and supply stores everywhere. It works well for more than a couple of pages at a time. Until Tom can design/provide one for us you might take a look at Daytimer, Franklin Covey or any of the other providers of calendars. You might find something there that would work for you.
    Take it easy,

    Only marginally related to the topic - but I went looking at the paper used in the Field Journal and found that Greys Harbor Paper has just closed down ...

    Patrick Quigg, President of Grays Harbor Paper (GHP), explained the continued high price of raw materials, lower than expected sales of high-value products, and accompanying cash flow considerations are the major factors contributing to the decision to shutdown. In addition, a recent major refinancing effort undertaken by GHP did not materialize.

    Really sad to see small(ish) industries falling on hard times. From their website it looks like they were trying to do it right - hard in times when the paper industry (world wide) has such a poor image.

    Hopefully there's another ethical paper company that TB can source paper from - or someone resurrects Greys.
    List under construction ....

    This is pretty much my set-up, too. At work, I took an extra standard three-hole-punch we had laying about and reset the punches for half-sized paper. My large weekly print-out of lists and forms gets handled with that. At home, it's usually just a couple of pages, so I use a hand-held on-hole-at-a-time punch, with an already punched page on top of the stack to act as a guide.

    Very sad. All of our office paper came from Greys Harbor as well. We'll, of course, be looking for a new paper company -- if anyone has recommendations, feel free to share them.
