Set your calendar in stone with Karst Stone Paper planners

Karst describes themselves as the world’s first stone paper stationery company.  They make a series of hardbound and paperbound Moleskine-like notebooks with paper made from recycled stone.  The notebooks are thread-bound and lay completely flat.  Writing on the paper is smooth because it lacks the grain directionality of normal paper.  Karst says their stone paper is brighter than regular paper, and it has a velvety smooth texture.  It’s waterproof and tear-resistant.  It’s friendlier to the environment than regular paper, as well.  Karst states that each metric ton of their paper saves 950kg of carbon from entering the atmosphere, 18 large timber trees, 4720 kilowatts of energy, and 2770 liters of water, compared to the manufacture of regular paper.  Both the bindings and the paper are recyclable, too. 

Karst has just launched their 2018 planner.  The notebook has weekly and monthly views, and Karst says each month has a “theme or focus for an all-rounded sense of achievement and development by the end of 2018. Each monthly theme has been carefully curated to work to help increase your productivity, goals, and overall fulfillment.”   Due to demand, expect your planner to ship in 4-5 weeks, so you should order now to have it in time for the new year.  The Karst 2018 Planner is $38.95.

  2. I am writing with reference to your article of November 9, 2017 called
    “ Set Your Calendar in Stone….”
    Stone Paper Global Technologies Group is the inventor of mineral paper making technology, marketed internationally under the Stone Paper brand, and is also the creator and proprietor of the trademark STONE PAPER around the world.

    We are the global holder of Intellectual properties in various forms related to Stone Paper materials.

    With reference to your article mentioned above, our paper is not made of any stones, rocks, pebbles, or any waste materials, but made of pure Calcium Carbonate mineral which is extracted from mines. The Calcium Carbonate is ground into a fine powder mixed with a small amount of non-toxic resin as a binding agent to hold the Calcium Carbonate powder together.

    For purposes of information accuracy and to avoid any misrepresentations, we respectfully ask that you edit your article to reflect the correct information. Furthermore, it would be greatly appreciated if you would use the name Stone Paper to reflect the brand name of the mineral paper as opposed to a generic product name.
    We would be more than happy to assist you with the edits if you wish.
    We look forward to hearing from you at your earliest convenience.
