Introducing the Vanguard

01 June 2016 by Joey Cofone

Designed for greatness.  


Two years ago we introduced our first notebook, the Confidant hardcover. Since then we’ve grown to selling in over 30 countries around the world, with customers in every nook and cranny of the planet. It’s been a powerful experience, to say the least.

Part of our journey to champion thinkers includes an emphasis on feedback. At every turn and on every channel of communication—in the box, on our site, facebook, twitter, instagram—we emphasize the importance of you, the customer, sending us your thoughts. And you hear us, because we receive emails, tweets, and messages from you on a daily basis.

Over the last two years your feedback has poured in about the Confidant, and we’ve made several tweaks under the hood in the way it’s bound and shipped. One of the most common requests has been to create a softcover version that’s thinner—essentially a notebook that’s better for those who like a rough and tumble experience.

We felt that these changes are significant enough to warrant a notebook with it’s own personality. Hence, the Vanguard.

The Vanguard is now available in three sizes: pocket, flagship, and plus. All three sizes use the same quality paper that our customers know and love. Each pack comes with three notebooks. They’re currently available in our signature Light Gray and Charcoal colors.

Thank you for the feedback, we couldn’t do this without you. We hope you enjoy. :)
