Taking a moment to capture an idea gives us the ability to move onto further thought, or the next stage of the original idea.
It might be the note you take today that connects with another thought next week… or sometime in the unforeseeable future. Having a dedicated place to physically collect thoughts & ideas, especially the ones most personal to you, offers us a time tested creative repository. While convenient, technology often has a way of disrupting our spontaneity and natural flow of thoughts. The immediacy of pencil and paper, without outside distraction, allows the mind to remain focused and connected to a specific idea.
Since 2004, Postalco has delivered some of the world’s finest spiral bound notebooks. Reliable tools to help cultivate our creative process, personal feelings, or simply to gather a daily diary.
Opening completely flat for ultimate flexibility, Postalco notebooks are bound by elegant pressed cotton covers, are water resistant, and designed for durability. Available in three colours, with options for Plain White or 1mm Pin-graph ecologically made, chlorine free sheet paper, the slightly textured quality of a Postalco notebook helps to guide your preferred pencil or pen, making these notebooks ideal for both writing or drawing.
Pressed Cotton Fabric:
Starch-pressed cotton is bonded to the cover of these notebooks. The colors will lighten with use and the weave of the fabric will become more apparent. The fabric is water-resistant treated.
Versatile paper with a texture that keeps the pen from slipping too easily and makes it an ideal writing surface to keep thoughts flowing. Suitable for writing or drawing. Page thickness prevents most show-through. This paper is ecologically made and chlorine free.

Born out of a passion for the beauty of everyday objects, Postalco found its start in Brooklyn, New York, making notebooks and document holders. Since moving their base of operations to Tokyo 20 years ago, the line has expanded to include wallets, pens, bags and other items. Combining utility and functionality with understated beauty, Postalco effectively improves our relationships with these objects by inviting us to see them as “collaborators” in our lives instead of as throwaway items.
With a solid dedication to finding new ways to apply Japanese craft to daily life, Postalco creates items that are meant to be used by all walks of life – young and old, male or female – a practice that results in building more meaningful interactions with others and with our surroundings.
