kulte posted a topic in Paper and Pen ParaphernaliaHello, Here I was just trawling the web looking for suggestions on a better way of taking notes and notebooks to use and I run across this forum! Wow, I didn't think about punching my own custom notebooks and getting exactly as I need. I shouldn't have been surprised. So thank you from a short-time but thankful lurker on the wonders of DIY notebooks! I like the Annotation-style page from Levenger for projects and note-taking at work. If only there were a way to digitize them as part of my work flow. I read an article on Lifehacker that referenced Whitelines Link and how it could send your notes to Evernote, Dropbox, or an email address. As a proof of concept, I went to the Whitelines site where they have Link templates and downloaded their A4 template. I then downloaded the Annotations template by mmcadory at DIYPlanner. Using a PDF editor, I put the Annotations template in the Whitelines Link template, careful to keep the template inside the outside edges of the corner icons, assuming that is the virtual border. I figured that printing that much gray would be both a toner sucker and would make the paper not as enjoyable to write on, I converted everything around the template to white in true neanderthal fashion: I made a bunch of white rectangles and blocked out the gray. Not the prettiest of work, but for a PoC, it was good enough! Here is the template mashup: Annotation Lined Template with Whitelines Link.pdf I downloaded the Whitelines Link app on my iPhone, Scribbling some notes on the printed template, I wrote an "X" on the Evernote icon on the bottom of the printout, used the app, and held my breath. The app found the border icons, photographed my notes, and asked me which Notebook I wanted to put the PDF output in my Evernote account. Seconds later it was in that Notebook. REALLY COOL! There is some gray smudging in the scan, though. Not quite sure how to fix that, but for what I'm doing it isn't a big deal at all. Whitelines has a very intuitive and neat app. They wouldn't have sold notebooks to me but they sure could have sold me an app if it weren't already free! I hope I don't upset them by modifying their template--but just to make sure I kept their name and logo at the bottom of the template. Does anybody else have cool tricks to digitize notes into cloud apps? I couldn't find anything for Skydrive and I have been thinking about using One Note to better organize notes, clippings from the web, PDF's etc. Thanks again for the new obsession! --kulte
Hi Everyone, Just wanted to say that for those of you looking for quality copy/looseleaf paper the Double A paper sold in Amazon is incredibly smooth and reasonably priced (35$ per case). As a student I needed a cheap solution for looseleaf so I printed the college ruled template (found on Incompetech website) on it and you can even print and write on both sides (very little shadow)
If you like it you can add this to the ink review forms link list, I can't PN any of the moderators, mailbox probably full or something like that. https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/41028515/FPN/inkreview_form.pdf This is the form I've built for my tests: https://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/index.php/topic/270869-susemai-black-amber/
Guest posted a topic in Paper and Pen ParaphernaliaI discovered these two sites a few weeks ago when I was looking for templates to print on my own paper for writing practice. I figured some of you might be interested in thiese two sites: http://www.printablepaper.net/ This site has all sorts of line templates available to print on your paper at home. Everything from the basic notebook line rule to college rule,,, 5mm square or dot, French ruled and tons more. All for free. The drawback is they have their website address at the bottom left od the template and you can't remove it unless you do it through some sort of photo editor program. I have printed some of the templates out on some of the nicer laser copy paper I have and was surprised. I have yet to get any expensive paper but will definitely be using this site when I do. http://www.freeprintablestationery.net/ Self explanitory and the designs are somewhat generic but some of you might find some you like. I for one am making some of my own stationary using some of my fine art photography as backgrounds.
