Our Trip Planners have had a Makeover

Posted by smART bookx Stationery on Friday, July 6, 2018, In : Travel and World Cultures 
Hello All,
We've been super busy over the last 6 months republishing most of our journals as second editions with a new publisher. The second editions of our Trip Planner & Travel Journals have a way better interior, with clearer fonts and more space for daily trip planning. Plus we've extended the design ranges. Here are a couple of our new additions:

    

(Ranges: Top left 'Trip Art', Top right 'Quotes', Bottom 'Rustic')

FYI All the 2nd editions and new designs are on at cheaper prices even tho...

A trip planner and travel diary combined for up to 4 vacations (just like our other Trip Planners), but the cover of this one is perfect for an American Road Trip. It's covered, front and back, in fantastic American vintage postcards, stamps and road signs.

How about a Trip Planner & Travel Journal Combined?

You can store all your travel plans and memories in one place with these new journals from smART bookx. There's tonnes of stuff inside (really good value for money).

Each book accomodates up to 4 trips, so when it's full it will become a lasting record of all your travels, say in one year or over the course of a fe...

Journal (left), Notebook (center) and Pocketbook (right)

   

The dragon brings good fortune to those who deserve it and the Chinese characters for luck and happiness are featured on the front and back covers. Hidden within the twisted stems of the three lucky bamboos is the number eight — considered auspicious in China because it sounds like the Chinese word for 'wealth'. To polish it off we've...

Customer Review (Pocketbook), Dec 2014 "This was a gift for my niece prior to her trip to London. It is a very nice, small note book. It isn't too big, but just the right size to jot down little notes about her trip."

The Union Jack or Union Flag is the official flag of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. It is comp...

Our Love Affair with Scottish Tartan

Posted by smART bookx Stationery on Thursday, April 9, 2015, In : Travel and World Cultures 
So popular is this simple plaid design that we publish it in our full range of sizes:


Above: Red Tartan Journal (right), Notebook (center) and Pocketbook (left)
Below: Red Tartan Composition Notebook


   

Tartan is, of course, inextricably linked with Scottish culture, probably more so than Nessie, neeps and tatties or whisky. Walk into any Scottish gift store and you will be confronted with a blaze of tartan … and yet it has evolved into so much more than just another Scottish emblem for presen...

Italian Flag Pocketbook

Posted by smART bookx Stationery on Thursday, April 9, 2015, In : Travel and World Cultures 
Our Italian Flag design is available as a notebook (5" x 8", left) and a pocketbook (4" x 6", right):

What is it about the Flag of Italy that just makes you think of Neapolitan ice cream? We find the curly font also provokes subtle desires to eat spaghetti. It's hard to look at this stationery and not think FOOD!  Would be good for foodies to keep Italian recipes in.
