For years, people had been asking us to make a Reporter’s Notebook. So we did. Our Summer 2016 “Byline” Limited Edition was apparently exactly what people had hoped for. It was an instant classic, and quickly sold out, and then even more people were asking us to make more Reporter’s Notebooks. So we did.
It’s everything you loved about “Byline,” in a permanent edition. The cover is 120#DTC Neenah stock, in “Concrete” gray. The innards are Cougar 70# text paper, bright white college-ruled with light gray lines. The Double-O-Binding is black. “Front Page” is here, and will remain in production and in stock indefinitely.
Proudly printed by the good people of eDoc Communications, Mount Prospect, Ill.
