Event Limited Refill Memo Pad
Special Refill Memo Pads exclusive to pop-up events will be available in limited quantity at DC Fountain Pen Supershow and San Francisco Pen Show! A total of 6 unique types of refills in A5 and Bible size are designed to expand your creativity and how you use PLOTTER.
Manuscript Paper Refill Memo Pad features a layout that is commonly used for Japanese manuscripts or writing—each square accommodates a single Japanese character or punctuation mark. Typically filled in from left to right, top to bottom, this would be a useful layout for Japanese language learning.
Panel Layout Refill Memo Pad can be used for creatives who would like a space for storyboarding, brainstorming scenes, or drawing small comic strips.
Letterpress Printing Refill Memo Pads are made with “MD Paper Cotton” with 6mm letterpress ruled lines. Enjoy the texture of the letterpress and the subtle imprint of each line when you write on this paper.
Color Paper Refill Memo Pads give your writing senses a refreshing change of pace with cream and gray colored pages. This could be used for sketching, writing, or additions to your PLOTTER set up as highlight and reference pages.
Music Paper Refill Memo Pads are A5 size refills that are developed alongside musicians who enjoy using PLOTTER to create tunes and music. The score sheet layout will be a great addition to your musical aspirations!
Black Paper Refill Memo Pad gives you a dark canvas for creativity. You can write with colored pencils, white gel ink, or other opaque mediums for some interesting effect! We look forward to letting you try these papers out!
Event Limited Refills – Price varies from $11.50 – $14.00

PLOTTER Leather Binder Customization Event (SF Pen Show only)
One of our fans’ favorite events in Japan is live customization by our PLOTTER team to choose your own leather and assemble a leather binder in person. We will be bringing this experience to the San Francisco Pen Show 2022, so please come check it out!
You can choose from a lineup of unique leathers (Pull-up, Shrink, and Bridle), 5 colors (Dark Brown, Green, Yellow, Lavender, and Gray), and Gold or Silver backplates to create a one-of-a-kind PLOTTER Leather Binder. We have them in A5 size, Bible Size, and Narrow size, in limited quantities each.
Each day of the event, customers can preview the leather and choose their favorite expression and backplate combination. Before the pen show, an online appointment* calendar will be open for the customer to book a time to ensure their place in the queue. Throughout the rest of the day, you can watch how the leather binders are assembled at the PLOTTER booth. Perhaps you can even view yours assembled before your eyes.
*Assembly and pick-up time may change depending on the sales situation. Please read further to see how to secure a spot through the online appointment.
