Grid Pad
E Hoffmann (England, United Kingdom)
Grid pad - where have you been all my life?

Really appreciate the quality and design of the grid pad. It’s easy to use. The plain border is great, leaving space where I can punch holes in the border and store pages easily. Will purchase again.

Brass Pencil Sharpener
David Popely (England, United Kingdom)
In another league

I'm a lifelong and habitual consumer of cheap steel pencil sharpeners but it's a teal pleasure to have this. The weight of it in the hand communicates that this is not just another cheap disposable item but a proper asset. Highly recommended.

Delightful product, couldn’t fault it.

Week Planner

Great analog tool to keep on my desk. Keeps me focused at a glance. The paper feels great. Wished I had purchased sooner. No swipes, buttons to push. Quick glance and I have a sense of my week. Writing tasks down just seem to keep things in focus.

Perfect Seconds

I am now into my third year of using Mark + Fold diaries, and I am sure I will be a lifelong fan. The quality of the diary is second to none, the design is minimal enough to allow you to use it in a multitude of ways but still provides a great base structure to work from. I have changed how I organise my time lately, so my weekly spread looks very different to how it did in the past years books, but the layout of the diary lends itself perfectly to so many different styles and preferences. I can see it growing with me as years go by, and knowing I have such a great company to come back to year after year feels like such a treat in the depths of winter!

Great paper to use with fountain pens. Love build quality and feel of paper

2024 Diary | Special Edition
Anita P. (England, United Kingdom)

For many years I would buy a diary use it for a few months and then change to another (or a few) as they never worked for me.
Then six years ago a Mark+Fold landed in my lap. I've never looked back.
This is my third year using the limited edition, I love the texture and the way it feels when I pick it up - also it's durable and hard wearing.
Now my diary buying is easy - I wait for a pre-order email and get my diary purchase done in August each year.
Please don't even change it.

Top quality seconds

Not exactly sure why this is a second, seems like a first in quality to me! This is at least my third year of using the mark + fold diary and it’s just the best for jotting down what I’ve done with my day and recording my crafty makes.

James J. (England, United Kingdom)
Fab - as always!

Love these diaries, use them every night to journal out the day. Really high quality production and design. Wouldn't use anything else.

The only one

You’ll NEVER catch me buying another planner aside from Mark and Fold’s. Never ever ever. I say this as a former Hobonichi user (meh), as a former bullet journalist (more meh), and as a Target planner dabbler (please no). This is the one. So simple, easy, minimal. No fuss and plenty of room for notes and writing. No pressure to fill every line, yet includes space to plan your day down a T, if that’s your jam. Fantastic paper. Three years strong now. The 2024 navy???? Ugh I’m in love

Absolutely lovely notebooks

I’ve been a customer since 2020 and M+F never ceases to wow me. It’s the Apple of stationery brands—unpacking an order is legit a transcendental experience. Beautiful notebooks with superb attention to detail. Lovely packaging, high quality materials, exceedingly smooth paper. Virtually no bleed-through even after I used heavy oil-based ink. Absolutely worthwhile buy

Perfect diary as always

My go-to Christmas present for extra special loved ones. Love the lay-flat binding and the paper has a lovely luxurious texture. As with all mark + fold, can’t fault it.

The Moss(t) Wonderful Time of the Year

The annual tradition of getting a new Mark+Fold diary is something I really look forward to. The Moss colour is exceptionally good. The understated, practical layout is perfect for implementing my own, somewhat off-the-scale, system. I don't think I'll ever find another diary so perfect.

Hi Amy
It looks very nice and I'm training myself to use it.
But more importantly, it's the 20th birthday of LFA this year, so we want to get the band back together again for a party. I did a podcast with Moira this week, which will be on the LFA website soon .
It would be nice to see everyone again. best wishes


Excellent products

This order was for my second batch of three notebooks, and a diary, moving up from just using the 12 month planner last year. I do enjoy writing at these note books are simply a joy to write in, and the format of the planner and diary are both very flexible - you can simply change the format of how you use the diary from increments as little as daily. All in all an excellent find and products that I will certainly be sticking with. Thank you.

2024 Diary | Moss
Anonymous (Victoria, Australia)

Getting a yearly diary from Mark & Fold is a pleasure from the time of order to its arrival and thereafter with daily use. Order early enough and you have a choice of colour. I appreciate the clean simple format with space for random notes, engagements and more, plus beautiful paper with either ink or pencil …
And although I live in Australia, my diary always arrives intact, sustainably well wrapped - no chance of crumpling in transit…thanks!


Beautiful quality. Every page matters for me with this level of detail. Lovely, thoughtful packaging too.
