New! Quo Vadis Plan & Note Planner Review

Quo Vadis Plan & Note Planner and Platinum Cool Fountain Pen

Quo Vadis Plan & Note Planner and Platinum Cool Fountain Pen

Brand new from Quo Vadis this year is the Plan & Note Weekly Planner. It has an open format, which means it doesn’t have an hour by hour schedule or a lot of extra details. It simply and effectively gives you the space and freedom to organize your days according to your own personal needs.

It has one week on two pages, with Monday through Thursday on the left page and Friday through Sunday on the right page. Each day has 7 blank lines for recording your appointments, thoughts, memos, plans and adventures plus an extra eight lines for notes on the bottom right. It does make a note of major holidays as well as phases of the moon. The week of the year is mentioned on the bottom of the right page.

The very beginning of the planner has a page for your personal information and a page with a calendar of the current year. There are also 12 monthly planning pages – one for each month of the year. Each month has a six-week Monday through Sunday calendar grid to keep your plans on track. Major holidays and phases of the moon are listed here.

The Plan & Note’s paper, cover and binding are all noteworthy. First, the brilliantly smooth paper is made by Clairefontaine. The large Plan & Note Desk Planner has glorious 90 g paper that works wonderfully with fountain pens. The pocket size planner has 64 g paper to keep it nice and compact. The pages are bright white with 2 color printing and have tear-off corners to help you find your place.

The cover is flexible with a pleasing velvety soft touch. It is streamlined and simple with only the year and Quo Vadis logo blind embossed on the front and only a logo on the bottom center of the back. The cover is mostly black, with a colorful re-inforced spine and matching elastic closure. This year’s colors include Turquoise, Rose and Violet.

It has a stitched binding so that pages won’t fall out and it can open flat. The spine is flexible enough that the planner can be completely opened backwards without breaking.

Join Us in Celebrating Our 10th Anniversary!

10-year-anniversary

November 2016 marks the 10th anniversary of Writer’s Bloc! It’s hard to believe it’s been 10 years already since we opened the doors of our first retail store on NW 23 Avenue in Portland, Oregon. We were motivated by our love of good quality fountain pens, writing instruments and paper to create our shop to share what we love with others that have the same passion, and also to inspire others to develop a love for handwriting.

Our 10th Anniversary Sale is already underway, offering 10 weeks of deals on many of your favorite products. This week you can get an extra 10% off on all dot-grid notebooks. We’ve still got 7 more weeks of sales to go until the end of 2016 – visit our website often and follow us on social media to check out the latest discounts.

Writer's Bloc History

Writer’s Bloc History

That first shop focused on a variety of well-made pens, unique journals, office supplies and stationery from Asian countries. We also had a pretty rad display of Eurogames! Check out this collage of some products from the past – anyone remember these?

Nostalgic collage of items we used to have in our shop

We’ve come a long way since 2006. You helped us to discover Clairefontaine, Rhodia, J. Herbin Ink, Noodler’s Ink, LAMY, Quo Vadis Planners and more essential high-quality tools for writers. We’ve expanded the number of fountain pens on our shelves. Who knows what will arrive at Writer’s Bloc in the future! You’ve helped us get to where we are now and we really appreciate the great community of pen, pencil and paper people out there that have supported us and provided us with inspiration over the years. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making our 10 years a success!
