It may be very quiet here, but I have not stopped conducting Field Notes-related polls at my Instagram account @threestaples! With the release of Spring 2019 edition just around the corner (possibly later today!), I’d like to share the results of these polls, specifically those with Spring editions.
Shelterwood vs. Coastal
Poll start date: February 15, 2019
Total number of votes: 161
Winner: Coastal (69%)
From 10 different Spring editions released so far, I chose these two for their distinct texture on the cover. I really didn’t know what to expect, but I was surprised to see Coastal win by such a big margin. I thought Shelterwood was more popular than that! Oh well. As for me, it was a tough decision, but I went with Shelterwood only because I find the reticle grid in Coastal a bit too distracting.
National Crop vs. Two Rivers
Poll start date: February 22, 2019
Total number of votes: 155
Winner: Two Rivers (51%)
I thought National Crop and Two Rivers both had the Americana theme going on, so I decided to give this pair a go. I thought my pick, National Crop, would win (6 different colors! Clamshell box!) but alas, I was wrong. Not very decisive but a victory nonetheless for Two Rivers. I wasn’t disappointed though. Both are pretty fantastic in my book, and it was another tough one.
Two Rivers vs. Coastal
Poll start date: March 8, 2019
Total number of votes: 129
Winner: Coastal (58%)
For this poll, I took the last two winners and had them go head to head. My pick was Two Rivers (I heart hand-printed) but Coastal came out the winner. Coastal sure is popular! I should do a poll in the future with the two losers: National Crop vs. Shelterwood.
Sweet Tooth vs. Utility
Poll start date: March 22, 2019
Total number of votes: 179
Winner: Sweet Tooth (51%)
Last week, I chose editions that seem the least popular among all the Spring editions, and I was quite surprised to see that it was a tight race. I thought Sweet Tooth would win by a bigger margin because I’ve heard so many complaints about Utility so far… but I guess you never know! I’m not a huge fan of either, but my pick was Sweet Tooth. Love that metallic foil printing.
Obviously, I didn’t do every combination of Spring vs. Spring.. Saving the rest for later. 😜
What are your reactions to these polls? As I’ve said in my last IG polls post, these results probably represent only a small percentage of Field Notes fans, people who follow me and happen to view my Instagram Stories at the right time, etc. I wonder if there are any randos among the voters, those who have never even heard of Field Notes.
If you’d like to participate in my polls, feel free to follow me on Instagram @threestaples and watch out for new Stories on Fridays. ✌️
