2024 DIARY | PILS (PREORDER)
Each year we produce the Mark+Fold Diary in limited numbers and due to popular demand we open pre-orders in April for the following January. As a small independent business, pre-orders help us manage our ordering process and avoid waste; in return we thank our loyal customers with special pre-order pricing. We do this instead of end-of-season sales and so far it has ensured that we sell every copy.
Pre-order price available until 8th September. Diaries will ship towards the end of September, along with additional items within the same order.
Our award-winning layout provides clarity and structure without being prescriptive, so you have the freedom to create your own 'system'. Being avid stationery lovers ourselves, we use only the most exceptional paper — made in Sweden, silky smooth, and fountain-pen-friendly.
Our new Pils cover is very close in colour to the mustard we all know and love, whilst being slightly richer and warmer. It also has small 'flecks' thanks to its special making story: the clue is in the name, as this one is made from a natural husk that is a bi-product of beer production.
Please note the paper we use for the pages has had to change this year, due to one of our favourite mills in Scotland closing down. Read more here

"I was actually really surprised by how hard it was to find a planner that's sophisticated and sleek, I'm so glad I stumbled across yours." Kate, Hereford
"This is the absolute best week at a glance layout that I've ever seen in a planner. The details are all right. The ability to use the day section by time (morning, afternoon, evening) or as a to-do list, or both. And the space below to write extraneous notes. It's brilliant!" Joel, Chicago
The Mark+Fold Diary layout is the result of extensive research, and in-depth discussions with our customers.
We focused on providing a clear 'picture of the week' using elegant, clean typography and neat 'zoning' of the page. We have kept things as simple as possible, with a view to offering structure without being prescriptive.
The aim was to inspire you to make plans and feel excited about getting organised, but with the freedom to build your own 'system' — one that works for you and your life.
HOW IT'S MADE
We use a fountain-pen-friendly 120gsm paper, which is super smooth and a beautiful, warm off-white shade. It is made sustainably in Sweden.
All our notebooks and diaries are bound in thread-sewn sections with cold glue, resulting in a book that is as robust as it is elegant. The cover is attached via a strong 'hinge' front and back, rather than having any stiff glue applied along the spine itself. This allows for beautiful flexibility and a perfect 'layflat' for the most comfortable writing experience. We use only FSC-certified papers.
As a Mark+Fold Diary customer, you benefit from a special price on selected 'add-ons.' These are items which were designed to work in conjunction with the diary, or which have proven popular in our community of diary users. Add any of these to your cart with any diary and you’ll automatically receive the special pricing. Browse add-ons
We make a series of removable diary covers, to avoid single use of valuable resources, and designed to protect your diary in an elegant and distinctive style. Our limited edition Leather covers are hand-made in the UK by Doe, using the finest veg-tanned bridle leather. We have also recently launched a range made from
Piñatex, a sustainable felt-like fabric, made from bi-product of the Pineapple industry. Read more

2023 DIARY | MUSTARD
I love this diary. It’s almost 100% perfect! Love the paper stock and the design. There is room for it to adapt to each user and become more than a tool to maintain one’s schedule. I keep notes on the side, to do list, etc.
Wear well, fold flat, easy to use, quality paper, take black ink well with no bleed through. Long lasting and a permanent record. The simple pleasures of life, during moments of reflection each day as the diary record and monthly plans are updated.
Purchased as a present for my wife who has one every year. She loves them. She uses it daily, writes only in fountain pen and they are like works of art by the year end. A really good example of how carefully considered design and good quality materials can bring a lot of joy.
Superb quality, understated design. Everything I wanted.
