Sizes


Stuck on which size to get? A lot of the cover sizes will allow you to easily buy inserts at the local stationery/business supplies store, or online (there are lots of Etsy shops that stock inserts - just search "traveler's notebook inserts" and look for a size that corresponds to your leather cover). Some sizes are compatible with Moleskin, Field Notes, and Leuchtturm1917.

Here's a visual for you comparing all sizes to a 12 inch vinyl, a 45 (which is 7 inches), and a paper back novel.

If you're already all moved in to a TN and you have inserts already please consider the following:

Measure your existing inserts and find the size that is closest. Note if you're between sizes, you should pick the larger size - you can always fit smaller inserts in to a larger size!
