Nickel-plated brass Circa discs..

Hi.

Got a new Lev catalog today and what do I see but nickel-plated brass circa discs on page 52.. $26 for 11 of them in the 3/4" size, so they ain't cheap.

...but they are pretty and they are metal..

*sigh*

Dadgum, that's a good idea..

Hi.

...and on page 56, they have Circa Annotation Tabs, in Junior size only I guess.. They're partial sheets of colored paper with white areas for writing on a tab and on the body of the page.

Didn't think about doing that, you could do that with any cardstock.. each piece is just two holes wide..

FWIW...

I realized from the start that I could do that with index cards or business cards (micro-pda cards)

If you do them yourself, just remember Smurfs are Metric !!

Well, yah.

Hi.

I thought about punching up the smaller pieces to stick in a larger notebook, but it didn't really occur to me to take a long, narrow piece to use for a divider tab instead of a whole sheet. THAT's the interesting bit to me.

Of course you don't need a whole sheet in Rolla/Circa, the only reason for it in 3-ring is to keep the thing from wobbling around, and I think in six-ring it's just because the hole spacing is variable between any two rings.

Now I am thinking about how you could get 10-up and more tabs by making angle cuts..

Levenger Annotation Tabs review

Just received my yearly give-in-to-Lev box -- making up a notebook for work this time -- and ordered the annotation tabs.

Ugh. They are super-duper wobbly, regardless of how much paper is on the rings. That's the only purchase that I'm disappointed in. For DIY purposes, 3 smurfs would be more stable.

Another thing: the paper is slightly shiny, like the gray page put in the front and back of the notebooks, making them not friendly to many types of pen.

Great idea but not a great execution.

Circa Nickels Discs
OK, now I gotta compare these discs to the Myndology aluminum discs.

Circa Annotation Tabs

Did you see the Circa Holiday PDA Notebook and the Holiday Tasker Cards ? I may have to make a run to the local Levenger Store.

Metal to Metal

Hi.

I have one of the aluminum Mynd discs. It's very light and has a brushed finish rather than a polished finish. It's also quite small, though they might offer them in larger sizes than the one I have.

The brass discs will be much heavier, brass being denser than aluminum, I think. These are also glossy instead of brushed finish, with the spiffy L branding in the center.. And they're pretty big, too. I'd rather have them tiny, personally, just because I'm slimming all my notebooks down.. :)

I'm curious as to the fit in the desk-punched papers, I must say. $26 is probably more than I want to spend, though, especially with Shipping added..

L branding

I think the L branding looks like it could cause problems. Like with the rollabind discs, with their brand on the discs, it causes the pages to "stick" when turning them... so, i wonder if the same will happen with the L???

What the "L" will happen ...?

Too good a straight line to pass on.

>:D

Centered

Hi.

The L mark is right in the center of a largish disc, so I don't think the paper will overlap it. I think it's also engraved, rather than raised, so I think it will be less of a problem than the Rolla marks.

At least you have a local Levenger Store to run to. I have to contend with exorbitant shipping costs if there's something I really need from the Levenger catalog. So far, I've managed to say no.

I would also like to express my jealousy

that you have a local Levenger store. I want the new True Writer really badly but cannot imagine my husband's expression if yet another L box arrives at the door...... I guess the other side of that is that you probably can't use the coupon codes, can you?

Ygor - There's an idea for you

You could start a business where you picked up stuff from the Levenger store and resold it, but you could package it in non-descript or other packaging that spouses, etc. would find totally disinteresting. I can guarantee you if my new pens arrived in a large Stayfree box my husband wouldn't go anywhere near it :)

>:D

...and you think Levenger gouges you for shipping. Bwa-ha-ha-ha-haaaaa !

I actually don't have a huge problem with Lev shipping

Mostly thanks to the code (SPCHG1) which usually cancels it out for me. My problem is hiding the darn boxes. I was getting around it by sending them to work, but now that I'm "temporarily unemployed".....

Bah Humbug!

I'm totally allergic to nickel. Plastic is my friend :-)
I bet they look very smart though.
