Daycraft's motto is "We Make Your Day" which is rather clever in several ways in that Daycraft specializes in day planners, diaries, and notebooks. They can literally help make your day. Daycraft is made in Hong Kong and they have quite a range of products. Without further ado, today's review will be on the Executive Pocket Diary.
Executive Pocket Diary
Fine Italian PU
Inkjet printed edges (matches cover)
Blue satin bookmark
w89 mm x h165 mm
This pretty little pocket diary is like eye candy. It is slim and portable. The color is really fantastic - it's a warm, rich turquoise blue (which I'm not sure I was able to capture in the picture properly). The planner is complemented with a dark mustard yellow elastic that is attached at the back of the planner, and hooks snugly and securely on to a metal post on the front cover.

Daycraft thought to include most of these because most of these are unheard of in US planners. It's very neat and interesting to see planners designed in other parts of the world.
If you are a fountain pen user, this day planner will not be suitable for you. The paper is somewhat thin and your ink will certainly bleed through. The same goes for liquid ink pens. Gel, ballpoint pens, and pens all worked just fine. Again, for an on-the-go day planner, I suspect most people toss a ballpoint or pencil into their bags.
I have yet to find a US online retailer for the day planners. If anyone knows of any, please share in the comments. Daycraft will ship worldwide though!
This is a very pretty and well designed diary. It is The only downside is they are rather pricy on this continent, however planners are hardly cheap to begin with, especially nice ones. I'm really impressed with this planner's overall character and quality - this planner goes to show that things made in Hong Kong can still be very well made! If you are in the market for a cute/pretty, portable day planner, this is a great one.
