oh I like!
It's a shame you have a ring binder aversion because this is irresistable and so practical. I'm a bit envious, but in a good way.
I think my green binder has 1-3/8" rings. It makes a HUGE difference! I can hold everything I want and it's still easy to turn the pages. They told me at the Franklin Covey store today that every 1/2" of ring holds about 50 pages. 50 pages is a lot!Good luck making a decision!
Perhaps you'll have to give it another month calling the dog and writing in both. Personally the ring binder won for me hands down. I just got my favorite binder about a week ago (looks a lot like yours!) and fell in love with the look and feel of it. I cuddle it, for heaven's sake. Being in love with the look and feel is very important to being happy with a planner. I hope you can plunge in and make that decision before long!
What a great closure! I've never seen that. Is it an older model?
I think it must be somewhat older. I don't know what the name of this model is, but it's not currently available on the FC website.
This is lovely! Colour me green with envy. ;)
Laurie,I bought a GIGANTIC zipped Franklin Quest (predecessor to Franklin Covey) binder with 1.5 inch rings, and at first was not too pleased, it seemed so enormous and awkward, but I'm coming to love it. And I definitely love the green original FC compact 2PPD inserts. They don't come with all the thorough info pages that DayTimer ships with their inserts, but the paper is very good, the day planning layout is nearly IDEAL and the extra half inch of writing space is really wonderful. My binder also has a fairly large gusseted zip pocket on the outside which I just realized I can slip my BlackBerry into... And suddenly I realize that I can carry this thing without a bag! Essentially everything I need is in the planner itself, and all securely held within the zip. Very handy! Your binder here is really lovely! I hope it works out for you.
Amazing Laurie, I love the way the leather looks and the color tooTracy
What a ring binder? Have I converted you to the joys of being able to add and change pages at will? Shame on me! ~Jackie
Love this. Such a cheery, bright color.
It IS a very happy color! And the leather is so smooth and nice to handle. I'm really loving this binder!
Update: I've been using this binder ever since I got it, and it's absolutely irresistible. I love how the smooth leather feels in my hands, the classic style and the excellent interior pocket configuration. The rings are the perfect size. Love it!!!
That's a stunning FC, Laurie!
Out of curiosity, did you ever find out the name of the binder please?
No, I never did. I also don't know when it was made, but it's a style that has been discontinued for awhile.
I love this binder. Is this classic or compact size?
In my rush to get the photos posted I didn't even specify! Sorry for the oversight. This is a Compact size. :)
