I thought oh well it will be here in over a week, I probably will sell it or return it (I may still sell it) two days later the tracking said it was in Exeter out for delivery, I checked to see if there was an Exeter in the USA as I thought 2 days from the USA was far too quick, but for sure it was coming to my house!
It arrived yesterday and my dad signed for it. It wasn't in any special packaging, unlike Filofaxes which come in boxes or card sleeves, no inserts at all, I didn't need any but usually new binders have inserts, but not in this case.
So I have taken some photos to show you. I am not as sure about the colour as when I first ordered it, it is a lot darker than I expected!
Here are some photos: -
It is still a lovely blue colour!
I love the inside but I was expecting it to have some blue in the pattern
It had a little card attached to the back zip on the secretarial pocket, which has the barcode and all on
Franklin Covey embossed in the back cover
The Rings have no misalignment at all all together and a tight snap as they close.
There is a small scratch on one side of the ring mechanism (not much I know but just thought I would show you, I am being very fussy today)
The bit to open the rings is the opposite angle to the Filofax one it is vertical rather than horizontal
The difference in ring sizes
Comparison photos next to my Osterley, I am surprised how much wider it is, maybe it actually could hold wider paper?
On the back there is a few loose threads, not sure if this is normal
Last picture I promise!
As you can see how small the Filofax paper looks inside the Franklin Covey, it makes me want to make larger paper for it and have a wider diary
What do you think of the binder, I do really like it just a bit darker than expected and its nice to have a different thing inside rather than the normal leather!
