Notebook Covers [Mods]

A couple years ago, I mentioned publicly mentioned my affection for composition notebooks. A few months after that, I was waiting in a hotel lobby to meet the dudes from Evil Hat Games in the hotel lobby. Then here comes well-known prince Rob Donoghue with surprise gift in hand:

A fancy schmancy notebook cover! I had no idea these things existed until he dropped this in my grubby mitts. Since then, it's been wrapped around a couple notebooks for various projects and been a very reliable doo-dad. It's got a bookmark...

...a business card holder, and large pockets for loose papers. The pen holder works best with bic pens whose ends have been chewed so that they're wider at the top.

One of these days, I gotta think of a cool mod for those class schedules and multiplication tables that are printed on the inside covers.

    So what kind of notebook cover is it?

    Do you have a link for the company or perhaps suggestions on where one could find it?

    I forget who made them offhand, but it was one of the main notebook companies. Target often carries them, though they are sold with coilbound notebooks inside. It's just that they happen to be just big enough for a composition notebook, so they're easily repurposed.

    PS - Sadly, fancier versions, like I've found at Office Depot, are *fractionally* smaller, just small enough to make them impractical.

    The front cover says "Cambridge City" but that's not turning up anything in particular. Searches for "refillable notebook cover" turned up these results though.

    Slightly OT:

    Have you ever found, used the blank comp. books? Unlined?

    I've only found one out to purchase and it was at an old business supply store that was delivered by accident.

    Just curious.

    I would really like to see some unlined books! I've only heard of them but never been fortunate enough to be able to buy one.

    Blank Comp Notebook - who knows if they're still available.
