スナップパッド SQ A5 Snap Pad SQ A5
We made these Snap Pads to capture and make it easy to use those loose papers. Perfect for To Do lists or for working out ideas. Wrapped with Pressed Cotton Fabric for durability. Patented. Handmade in Japan.
This fabric is made with the same machines that were used to make tent fabric. The base color of the white threads will become more apparent and it will soften with use. To keep the natural feeling of the material we did not waterproof coat the surface. There is a light water resistant treatment. Cotton is a natural material so slubs and irregularity in the fibers are part of its character. It is possible for wrinkles to appear as well.
If your item gets wet, pat dry with a soft cloth to absorb any liquid. With strong rubbing the color may come off leaving light spots. Please shade dry in a well ventilated area. If placed near air conditioners or heaters the item may warp.
We ship worldwide via DHL. Shipping usually takes 7-10 days from the dispatch date.

How to use
To use make holes in the top edge of the papers with a standard 2-hole puncher and snap them into the Snap Pad. To use the A5 size, just cut the A4 (or 8½ x 11") papers in half, punch holes, and snap them in! For A6 size, cut the A4 paper into four equal pieces. Each holds about 100 sheets.
Personalize to your liking
Everyone has their own unique way of using the Snap Pad. You can choose from a variety of our Snap Pad papers and accessories—Snap Calendar, Snap Pockets, and Fabric Tabs. We’ve seen Snap Pads used for photo albums, file folders, menus, and for tons of other purposes. In fact, we made the Snap Pad to intentionally allow for functions unintended by us to be discovered by the person using it.
It’s great to see people coming up with their own uses for the Snap Pad. We've seen people use them for photo albums, file folders, meeting notes, and tons of other purposes.
Writing something down allows us to think better. The spontaneous mixture of previous and current thoughts is what keeps the flow of ideas going.
We wanted a notebook that people can use in whatever way suits them at the moment.
Making the invisible visible
Stationery makes invisible, but important things, into something visible. The moment you close a digital display or phone, your calendar is gone. That’s what we feel is not satisfying about some digital solutions for things like to-do lists. There is still a very clear function for paper and stationery.

Snap Pad Accessories
Limit distractions and return to mindfulness with paper. The refillable Snap Pad, calendar, and accessories help us balance digital with paper to make each day more meaningful.
The idea for the Snap Pad came about accidentally when our designer Mike Abelson was playing with the snap on his calendar cover. He snapped in a memo card that happened to have a hole in it and it was really satisfying to snap the paper into place.
Prototype Snap Pad. The hole width matches the standard two-hole punch found in Asia and Europe.
Learning from Japan
The craftspeople, suppliers, and small workshops found in Japan make things not to be found anywhere else. We are fortunate to work with family businesses that are so focused on their craft. Don’t put Postalco items on a shelf or in a drawer. Their beauty is revealed through daily use. They will help you feel good at home and be ready in a meeting.
