Our notebook lineup currently consists of five different products with multiple colors that add up to 17 unique items. The CDT Graffiti Pad comes with grid paper. Grid paper is a fairly standard option among Japanese notebooks, and it conveniently allows you to choose between using just the horizontal lines for writing or the full grid to create precise sketches or drawings. The PH Letter Pad comes in ruled dot, which is similar to grid but with more white space for those who don't want to feel boxed in.
The PH Memo Pad and PH Notebook both offer blank paper, a blank canvas for your creativity. The CDT A5 Notebook offers lined paper. Combined with the useful A5 size, this is our best option for serious writing. The notebook utilizes great materials and has beautiful binding and design details that make it a worthy purchase. We hope our notebooks help you to come up with a new idea or piece of art or let you take a critical note or make a to-do list in style.
I bought my first Trusco tool box in 2008, and the blue steel looks as shiny as it did when it was new. I chose a medium Trunk Tool Box as a place to store my pens, pencils, scissors, etc. My Trusco tool box has moved around the world with me and has always been placed proudly on my desk as soon as it’s unpacked. Perhaps it comes from my love of Lego as a child (and the need to constantly clean up pieces), but I like being able to scoop up all my office tools, pop them in a box, close the lid, and have them out of sight when they’re not in use.
Trusco makes their steel tool boxes in an impressive array of shapes and sizes. The two boxes we chose to carry are the smallest sizes in their lineup, which are well-suited for stationery, craft supplies, and other small storage. I personally also own an 11-inch ridged tool box, which I use to securely store my shoe shine kit. We are currently considering offering other models, which are more suitable for tools or larger items. Virtually all of Trusco’s steel tool boxes come in their signature metallic blue enamel, but a few are available in other colors.
We hope you like our stationery-sized tool boxes, but don’t be surprised if we soon announce some bigger sizes and maybe additional colors too.
