why this product

Made entirely in Japan, the notebook covers are bonded with starched, pressed, and water-resistant cotton in four rich, muted colors. The paper is made from boiled natural fibers-forming smoothly textured pin-graph paper. 

This fine texture keeps the pen from slipping too easily and makes it an ideal writing surface to keep thoughts flowing. This paper is pH-neutral, meaning that it will not yellow over time and can last up to 1000 years. The pin-graph paper is ecologically made and chlorine free.

The Postalco notebooks are spiral-bound, for ease when flipping through pages, then cloth-bound for a clean look. When flipped open, the cover extends beyond the bottom of the page, adding support to your hand while you continue writing to the end.

The medium-sized notebook is 7" x 4.5", perfect for placing into a coat pocket or a purse.

Each notebook is subtly adorned with Postalco’s logo, a carrier pigeon, the speedy, correspondence-oriented birds that were trusted with urgent messages tucked into little leather pouches strapped to their backs. 

use & care

When wet, pat dry with a soft cloth to absorb any liquid. Rub lightly, as rough scrubbing will result in light spots. Do not place near air conditioners or heaters.

production & design

Currently based in Tokyo, Postalco originated in Brooklyn, New York. Husband-and-wife team, Mike and Yuri Abelson, a product designer and a graphic designer, began with a love of the international transport of mail and Japanese craftsmanship. Soon developing a passion for the beauty of paper, they applied their skills and fancies seamlessly into Postalco. Their current store is located in a quiet Tokyo neighborhood–a location befitting to their unique sense of style.

Mike and Yuri work closely with their team of craftsmen–discussing every stitch and fold in the construction of their notebooks, envelopes and wallets. Mike insists that a notebook as meticulously constructed as these can only be made in Japan. Postalco design their products as a reflection of the unmatched beauty of Japanese craftsmanship.

Notebook paper is ecologically made, pH-balanced and chlorine-free. The covers are made of starched, pressed cotton.
