“Blue Wednesday” edition (pictured center above) is a special 2-pack of regular-sized Field Notes memo books that was offered as a free gift with any purchase at the Field Notes website, on Wednesday July 26, 2017. It was not the first time Field Notes offered a “Wednesday” deal (they’ve given away Pitch Black in the past), but it is the first time they created a brand new edition specifically for this kind of deal.
Ah, Field Notes. Always keeping us on our toes. Were you surprised? I certainly was. Makes me wonder if they’ll offer this exact same blue edition the next time they do a Wednesday promotion, or if they’ll create a different “Wednesday” edition just for it.
Anyway, I quite like this “Blue Wednesday”! Its cover is Mohawk Carnival Vellum 80#C in “Blue” with black ink, and the innards are the usual Finch Paper Opaque Smooth 60#T in “Bright White” with graph grid in the same light brown color as you’d find in the Original kraft versions. I won’t dive deep into the specs in this post though; it’s all about color for now, so here are some more pics to see how this blue compares to other blue Field Notes.
I don’t know about you, but I’d describe it as a medium blue. Darker than, say, Butcher Blue, but lighter than the blue from County Fair or Unexposed, even. I like it.
I’m glad they were able to pull off a unique blue edition. Did you take advantage of this Wednesday offer? Do you like it?
