I can’t guarantee accuracy in these pictures because after trying to color correct them for awhile, I had to step away from the monitor.. 🙈 Darn neon colors! But this was fun, so I'm posting them anyway. And trust me, the orange colors are very close. The orange controller is slightly darker than the Unexposed’s counterpart, but both are shockingly bright and not as pink as pictured. As for the blue controller, it’s noticeably different from the blue memo book. They’re both very vibrant, but the controller is slightly lighter and has more of a yellow tint to it. It does not hurt my eyes as much as the orange one does.
“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?
