Why you'll love it

Printed and bound in Aberdeen

We're proudly transparent about how and where our stationery is made. Our Desktop Planner Pads are printed on a litho press and bound into pads by a family-run press in Bridge of Don just north of Aberdeen. With over 50 years experience, James and the team have been sharing their expertise with us since 2015 when they made our very first notebook covers.

> How It's Made

Great paper

For our Desktop Planner Pads, we use a 100gsm paper with a little more texture. As with all our papers, it is carefully chosen for its performance with fountain pen and other specialist tools.

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.

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

Mark Cotter (England, United Kingdom)

Amazing product. Thankfully, the paper does hold up to fountain pen use for making notes (a bit of ghosting but no bleed through on the reverse). The three spaces are versatile and the size (A5) is perfect for my desk at home and at work. Excellent packaging and service throughout. Mark+Fold has become one of my favourites.

Sam K. (England, United Kingdom)
Excellent quality

I've stopped buying stationery from anyone else, Mark and Fold's quality is simply unbeatable. Even heavy fountain pen ink is fine on these planner pads.
