No big announcements, but just some snippets of information I've been sent.
Following the favourable comments you have made about the Doodle pen loop insert, Filofax are considering but not promising to make this type of insert more generally available.
So if you have an organiser with only one pen loop, you could add one or two of these inserts to add some more.It has the advantage of course of being moveable between organisers. It's not a permanent fixture and will not damage the leather or the covering of the organiser like the stick on ones might do.
I wasn't aware of this but apparently early Osterley Compacts came with 2 pen loops this went down to just a single pen loop on more recently made versions of this particular model. Other sizes though now all have elasticated pen loops.
The elasticated pen loop is becoming more common across the range, this of course allows for 'fatter' pens.
Work continues on the development of the new website, I've been contributing some historical information that I have to go in to the 'History' section. I have also been asked to help test the beta site when it is ready. The new site is due to go live this summer, which ever week that happens to be!
Filofax is very aware of the limitations with the current site and they are very keen to get the replacement site up and running as soon as possible. They are investing all their efforts in to the new site, while trying to ensure the current site still does it's job for the remainder of its life.
More news on the 2013 range coming next week hopefully......
