Filofax brochure - Circa. 1980

We can't be 100% certain on the exact date of this brochure, but Monday 4th June occurred in 1979 and 1984. I'm focusing on 1980 as the publication date based on the source of the brochure and his correspondence with Filofax UK at that time.

Free for All Friday No. 628 by Nan

This is the time of year that many of us start preparing for various winter holidays. Because of COVID-19, many people are not able to travel or get together with family members. Have these changes made an impact on how you use your organizer? Have you downsized because your activities are more limited? Or have you needed to move up to a bigger organizer because of having kids and other relatives at home more, online orders to track, and so on? Of course, since it's Friday, all discussion of ring-bound organizers is welcome!

Guest Post - Prototype Malden - Sally

Thank you to Sally for submitting this post. We know prototypes or pre-production samples do find their way out in to the wilds. I have reviewed a Holborn that turned out to be a pre-production sample and I own a prototype/evaluation sample of an Eton Compact that never made it in to full production


I acquired this organiser a couple of years ago. There are a few differences between it and the pocket Malden that went into production, as illustrated in these photos.

The popper is flat.



The inside embossing only has the Filofax name, not the model name or the description ‘antiqued leather’. 

The pocket configuration of this organiser is identical to the regular pocket Malden except the prototype lacks a full height pocket on the inside back cover.


The last photo shows the comparison between the smooth, vibrant red leather of the prototype and the much darker, textured leather of the crimson Malden.


It’s an interesting addition to my Malden collection.

Thank you Sally for sharing this with us all.

Free For All Friday No 627 by Laurie

I love to play around with different insert pages in my Filofax. I find it especially convenient to print pages to try. It saves me from having to order and wait for new inserts, to possibly find they don't work for me. I love the variety and the ability to experiment with different pages without the commitment of having to buy a whole year's worth of pages.

I enormously appreciate Philofaxy's free insert downloads, and other free printable pages. I have tried numerous times in the past to create my own planner pages, but I'm never happy with how they turn out. They just don't seem to look nice. 

Do you create your own pages for your Filofax? Do you have any tips for making them look nice?

As usual on Fridays feel free to discuss anything ring-binder organizer related!
