Book Bandi Giveaway

UPDATE 5/30/11: Robyn and Twisted are the winners of the Book Bandi. Please email me your address and I will send it to you!  My email address is Jackie (at) LettersandJournals (dot) com 
Robin- you won the middle brown Book Bandi and Twisted chose the black bandi on the bottom from the photo below.
The Book Bandi is a bookmark, rubberband and pen holder all in one! The folks at Book Bandi asked if I would try it out and offer up my humble opinion. They also suggested that I might want to have a GIVEAWAY to one lucky reader. (Skip to the end for the GIVEAWAY.)
You can see in the photos above and below what the Book Bandis look like. They come in different sizes and designs that you can specify when you order on their site.
It was helpful to watch the video on their site to see the different ways this product can be used. As I mentioned earlier, you can use it to mark your spot in a book. Or you can use it to hold a book together or to keep ephemera from falling out.
In this notebook size scrapbook that I use, I put on the Book Bandi to keep the book tightly closed while also marking the page I was recently working on.
What is nice about the Book Bandi (besides its multi-functionality) is the way it stays flat inside of your book. The last thing I want in a bulky book is more bulk.
Probably the greatest selling point for me is the pen holder only because there are some books or journals that you want to use a certain pen with and the built-in pen holder always keeps the pen handy.
I was pleased with the design and functionality of the Book Bandi and would definitely use them on my journals as well as books that I read that I like to take notes while I'm reading.

One lucky winner will get their choice of the 3 Book Bandi's featured in the top photo in this blog post. Just leave a comment on this blog before midnight Friday, May 27 with your selection. Make sure to include your email so that you can be contacted. I will email the winner this weekend and you'll have 3 days to respond to the email with your mailing info. Of course, you are welcome to leave your mailing info in the comment if you want and I will just mail it to you without having to contact you first.

Be sure to state which one you would choose and if you want to say what you would use it for, that would be fun to see. The winner will be randomly selected.

Those look so cool! I love the black one. I would use it to hold my moleskine closed and as a pen holder.

Such a great idea. I have a sketch book version but don't like the pens being horizontal. The one on the bottom with plus signs in boxes is my fave and I would love to give it a home. Thanks!

BR said...

Very cool. I like the black one, too. I would use it for my journal.

Move over girls, make way for this chap in England who uses journals too. Great idea and a generous offer. Thanks.

Eric said...

I would love to have one

What a smart product! I think the 'inner' and 'outer' bands are a great idea. I like the looks of the third band; it looks like a necktie. My second choice would be the camo band. I'd send it to my niece who's serving overseas.

the brown one in the middle (which kinda reminds me of camofloge and my son is over in Iraq) is my favorite and would be a welcome help to keep my current "everything" journal held down while I work in it and kept close while not in use. Thanks for a all the nice giveaways you do!

Aisazia said...

Thanks for doing this! I would like the black one at the bottom. I would use it for my journals and or sketchbooks. So I'll definitely put it to good use. ^_~

Sara said...

I like the bottom one in the photo that is mostly black. I think this would float between my current journal and sketchbook, whichever was accompanying me at the time.
Thank you for the chance :)
