It was wrapped in what seems to be the new "box", a plastic sleeve. I had to wait a while to actually open it and "play" with it, but I got time this morning to take some pictures of it.
Rings are 23 mm.
Size is 135mm x 190mm x 35mm.
Came with a 2013/2014 diary (starting July 2013).
I even got a top opening envelope (I think different "shops" have different stuff they put in as standard, did not get any extras envelopes with the others).
Left no flash.
Right with flash.
I love the norwegian/swedish info pages though.
It came with the blue/aqua dividers. Nice colours, but a bit boring so these will have to be replaced with something more Me.
Not lying flat, but I have a feeling it will when I've filled her up and she's been used a bit.
This is ONE of the main features I wanted in my personal binder. The notepad "pocket"!!
I love having somewhere to write down a quick note or important stuff and then sort it into the right spot later. This will help!
The pen loop is elastic and the strap is long enough to stuff this baby to the max.
3 card pockets on the left side and a big "pocket" to stuff your phone, stickers or whatever in.
Compared to the A5 Calipso. Perfect!!
And then alongside the compact Calipso
And then a few family pictures for you to enjoy. I love my colours :)
So far I love everything about it except that when I open it the fabric on the closure flap wrinkles.
I've been opening it by pulling the flap from the side (or top of it actually) that way I am not noticing any creasing so I like that better. The binder feels "puffy" and I like it. The rings might not be the best, my Calipso A5 has better ones. But until there is an actual problem with them I see no harm in using it. If they end up bugging me and messing up my papers I'll give Filofax a call and ask for their help.
Thank you for reading my "yet another blog post about the Saffiano" :) Have a good day!
