Kraft series 6-pack

Kraft Series is an annual line of everyday pocket notebooks, made with paper covers and a saddle stitch finish.

What's different about Kraft Series?

The regular Dapper Notes you know and love are made with a double-cloth cover, contain an extra decorative endsheet, and are hand-sewn with a wax thread finish. Kraft series notebooks have the same smooth paper inside, but unlike their cloth-covered siblings are saddle stitched (stapled) over cover stock.

Edition Notes

This year I teamed up with both Dylan Goldberger and husband-and-wife duo Justin Ryan Books to create the Kraft Series edition. Rescue Dogs came about as a result of a stack of posters that Dylan started to print, but while printing the second color he noticed they had improper registration and couldn't be used for their intended purpose. We decided to put that pile of paper to good use by printing a selection of Dylan's dog illustrations as notebook covers. So I designed the covers using Dylan's dog breed illustrations, Dylan screen printed the notebook design using his signature blue, and he sent them off to Justin Ryan Books who put them all together using 70lb Dapper Notes paper I provided.

Each pack contains six notebooks with 40 pages each, as follows: American Cocker Spaniel is lined, Labradoodle and Boston Terrier are half graph, Golden Retriever is dot grid, Rotweiller is blank, and Bull Terrier is half dot grid.

Orders are shipped within two business days. If I'm away for any reason, you'll see an announcement on the top of the website noting as such.

Some items are made to order, which you'll see noted in the product description. 

Once shipped, most domestic orders take anywhere from 2 to 10 business days to arrive depending on the efficiency of your local postal service. International shipping delivery times may vary between 1 and 12 weeks.

10% to charity

Today is Giving Tuesday, and in the spirit of this edition's namesake, 10% of proceeds from my shop are being donated to Pawsitively Furever Dog Rescue

Screen printed

The covers for this edition were made out of prints that were stopped midway, which means that some packs will have two colors from the original printing process (white and light brown) and others will only have the original white. But all contain the six beautiful dog breed prints in Dylan's signature blue ink.


Dapper notes are the antidote to the digital age. Every item is handcrafted, hand-sewn, and designed for maximum delight.


Highest quality construction and materials, keen eye for detail, and delicious design, month after month.


Dapper Notes are the best quality pocket sized notebooks you can get. The textile cover and thread binding means the books will hold up through time. I love the thick paper as well; good for fountain pens.


I am a lover of texture, both visually and physically, so the different book covers are perfect for me!


Wow, beyond beautiful. They are very well made and sweet. Thrilled to have these gorgeous notes.


Beautifully made, exceptional craftsmanship, wonderful customer service!


I love this notebook. It's beautifully hand crafted, very sturdy, and makes a great conversation piece. 10/
