Friday TN Question No.4

Each week we ask our readers a simple question about their Travellers Notebooks and how they use them.

So this weeks question:

Do you use a pen holder in your Travellers Notebook? 

Please answer in the comments below, although I know a few of you will answer my question on Facebook.

  • Just got one myself (M-sized, brown) to use with Lami Safari

  • No. I'm always near a pen or pencil.

  • Yes, I use a pen loop. Sometimes I'm carrying nothing but my notebook, so I like to have a pen attached so it's easy to actually use the thing! I have been finding that the leather is stretching and making it hard to get pens in and out of lately, so I may experiment with another pen solution sometime.

  • I don't use a pen loop, yet, because I've only so far used my TN's at home, but I feel that I should have one. That said, I'm not sure I like the Midori style ones, and wonder if there's a better looking alternative? Monique in the Netherlands incorporates one into some of her booklets I think, or perhaps something along the lines of the Filofax Flex pen holder could be made?

  • Yes, I'm using a pen loop, thoufh I have always one or two pens in my pocket. You can never have too much pens 😉

  • I don't have a pen loop in my FN size TN planner. I can just stick the pen under the elastic in a certain spot between 2 inserts, and it stays nice and secure. I do have a pen loop on my regular size TN, a handmade one I purchased off Etsy. It's one of those squares with a sticky back and an elastic loop for your pen.

  • I carry several writing instruments in a pouch. So no pen loop for me.

  • yes, i do attach one to whichever TN i carry on a given day. i purchased a Midori brand loop and just move it from notebook to notebook as needed.

  • I keep a pen in the loop on my notebooks that have a loop physically attached; I tried the clip-on pen loop, but it drove me crazy! My FN size notebook doesn't have a pen loop, so sometimes I just slip a pen under the elastic on the opening edge of the notebooks. That pen is narrow enough that it doesn't interfere with anything.

  • Talking specifically about pen loops, can anyone tell me what size to go for? I tend to write with a Parker 51 or 61, both pencil and ballpoint. Thanks.

  • Yes, a dear friend made me a pen loop. I really love it.
    I tried the original pen loop also, but it didn't work for me.
