  2. One question that has been nagging me these last few days is which Filofax has the biggest rings (preferrably size A5 but any will do). We're not even half way through and my Filo is already bursting with info!

    And regarding the previous question, I'd say anywhere in Germany (Hamburg would be the best though ;o)

  3. Eva - I think the Domino has the largest ring size, I know I have my Craft-o-Fax 1 stuffed to capacity and it holds ALOT of stuff!

    There is a file on the Philofaxy website that details ring size, I just can't find it right now!

    But I would say Domino!

  4. The Finsbury A5's also have 30 mm rings likewise the new Malden has 30 mm rings.

    The file is at the top of the Files page. I need to do a further update to it with the release of some of the new range. I will do it when I get back to France next week, it's easier to do on a bigger screen...

    Regards
    Steve

  5. Thank you all for your answers. I am then in trouble since I have a Domino (Snake Bronze as well as Black)... I guess my only other choice is to buy another one!...

  6. The Cuban Zipped personal size also has 30mm rings! largest ring size for the personal.

  7. Has any-one got a Filofax folder (have not seen them discussed on here)? Looking at the Holborn zipped in wine. On my list to look at when in London in May...

  8. Just asked this on the other thread, but it might be better here - does anyone know if the Mulberry planner refills (which are A5 according to their site) fit the holes in the A5 filofax?

  9. @J Chicago would be nice! Paradise Pen in Oakbrook carries Filofax. Does Paper Source, or another city store, carry them? Regardless, maybe we can set something up with others in the area. :)

    @Eva My A5 Finsbury holds a bit more than my Classic....I wonder if the different covers/flexibility impact its stuffability.

    Did I just make up a word?

    Anyway, whom else wants a mini Malden?

  10. Edinburgh, The Pen Shop in Jenners....... just love Edinburgh for sight seeing too!! Although a bit like coals to Newcastle, as my family come from there!!! Hence Butanben, a shortened version of Butt and Ben. When I get my dreamboat little house with garden,it may very well be christened Butanben!!! And it would be sheer bliss for me to have a garden Filofax planner one day!!

  11. London on May 10th, as I´ll be visiting!

  12. @Butanben I'm thinking of setting up a gardening filofax - it's anew hobby for me - I decided I really had to sort the garden and making it a hobby seems the best way to achieve this! Now what would you put into your gardening filofax???

  13. @Alison Reeves. Well I've always wanted a garden, so it is daydreams at the moment, but I would have lots of ideal garden plans on squared paper, with seasonal planting schemes, addressess of suppliers, pictures of my ideal garden furniture from magazines and catalogues,seed packets,a plan for THE herb garden and planters,ideas for my mini salad and vegetable plot, ideas for wildlife attracting, bird tables, bird baths, butterfly and bee friendly plants,(though hopefully not the adder nest my dad has.... yeuckkk!!) ideas for pathways and a small reading hideway corner. I am sure there is more, but this is the beginning of my thoughts. Not on paper yet though!!! Just pipedreams for my little Butanben home!!!

  14. PS- Oh and there would be a small pull out calendar in my Garden'o Fax to remind me of when to plant and what to do in the garden when. I only want a small handkerchief sized garden at Butanben, but would love it to be full of colour, be much loved and to gain real pleasure from it. I can but dream.... one day!!!

  15. I know the answer Eva!! The Cuban Zip personal size has 30mm rings!! HUGE. It's what I have, and I loves it!

    ReplyDelete
  16. @Eva, not to plug my own videos, but I did a vid about the Cuban Zip in the personal, that shows the size/ring size. If you're interested, my YouTube channel is redforrori. Thanks!

  17. @rori you rock. i am watching your vids now

  18. Thank you @butanben, Maybe this is something we could do here in Edinburgh, there would be no limitations on size as we have a big area and there are a couple of restaurants in Jenners and in the surrounding area. Maybe we could pull this off?

  19. @Skhen- I've been to Paradise Pen, but I've never heard of Paper Source, although I just noticed they opened one in Naperville where I'm living! Hmmmm... this could be bad if they do carry Filos!

    I know filofaxusa says a few stores in the city carry them, but I have yet to find a good collection. I just found a store in Glenview, but that is a pretty long haul for me!

    Where in Illinois are you?

    ReplyDelete
  20. @ J Glenview is a haul for me as well...we're SW in Lockport. IF the store has a strong selection it would be worth every mile.

    Paper Source once carried items--I have not shopped there lately. Please don't get your hopes up!

    One more question today--

    Have you converted a non-planner user, electronic or paper, to the wonders of Filofax?

  21. @shepcraig. I live in Dorset at the moment, so it would be a long way to auld reekie for me!!! But yes, a dream Philofaxy meet and greet venue Jenners,just as Neal Street was and indeed is!!!

  22. @Rori: Thank you for your comments and thank you for sending me to your videos! They're really interesting and give me some food for thought. The Cuban looks amazing with all the pockets and the rings look huge as well. I think the only drawback for me is that it doesn't lay flat but otherwise, it's really nice and definitely worth considering.

    Thank you!

  23. @ Butanben @Shepcraig. I would definitely come to Edinburgh as I think it is a beautiful city. I would probably make a weekend trip out if it. I think another lovely lady Amanda would like that meet up too ;-)

    Once I knew in advance!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Oh I would SO come to Edinburgh for a meet-up!!! London's a bit far to get there and back in a day, but Edinburgh would be fantastic!!

    Amanda
