Evernote and Moleskine Collaborate For A Powerful Solution

Mont Blanc and Moleskine image

This is from a great blog fillthefunnel.com and I could not agree more about Moleskine and Mont Blanc – enjoy

If we have ever had the chance to meet in person, the chances are that I had  two of my most endearing companions with me – my Moleskine journal and my Mont  Blanc pen. Those two items have been with me for over 20+ years, seven days a  week.  If you wonder what the attraction is, I will have to use a phrase  from my Harley riding friends  and say

“If you have to ask, then you won’t  understand.”

One of my most frequently used web tools – Evernote –  has collaborated with my lifelong companion – Moleskine – to convert my note-taking and journal entries and provide them to  me in a digital, searchable format.

Moleskine notebooks are everywhere, overpriced, and somewhat of a  cliché in some circles. I don’t care. There is something about writing  ideas, comments, quotes, and referencesI encounter during my daily activities  into my notebook that is very comforting.

Evernote is on every computing device I own from desktop to  laptop to iPad to iPhone. I have written about Evernote many times in the past  to highlight the productivity and value that I gain when using Evernote to  capture the ideas, comments, quotes and references that I encounter during my  daily activities. I never have to worry that I will be able to come back and  find the information and use it when it is needed.

Notice that I described the exact same benefits of both the Moleskine  notebook and Evernote:

“…capture the ideas, comments, quotes and references that I encounter  during my daily activities.”

With the release of the new Evernote Smart Notebook by Moleskine, both are  now combined into one very helpful solution.

How does this work?

The new Evernote Smart Notebook uses Evernote’s Page Camera feature  to capture the pages of your notebook with your smartphone or  tablet. Evernote Page Camera is the iOS version for iPhone and iPad.  Evernote Ruled Smart Notebook features the unique “Evernote ruled” page style  with dotted lines designed to ensure a clean image when digitally capturing  your  notebook. Smart Stickers introduce Smart Tagging into your workflow. When  you  capture a page with Evernote, the Smart Sticker icons become searchable,  digital  tags that make it easy to keep your ideas organized and to keep your  digital and  analog work-spaces synced.

Hold on – each notebook is priced between $24.95 and $29.95 depending on size  and type and at first blush that seems ridiculously high. What makes this new  product a good value in my eyes is that each Evernote Smart Notebook comes with  3 months of Evernote Premium which I have been paying $5.00 per month for some  time.

Evernote Premium gives you bigger upload capacity, offers  greater sharing options, gives you access to note history, and more. Plus, you  get PDF searching, faster image recognition, and no ads, all of which I  thoroughly enjoy and recommend.

Yes, the notebook itself will set me back $29.95 for my version (Evernote  Large Ruled Smart Notebook – 5 x 8.25) but I save $15.00 every three months,  which strangely enough is about the time that it takes me to fill up my  notebook  anyway. So the total price for the notebook for me ends up being  $14.95. I have  been buying my notebooks through Amazon.com for $12.21 each, so  for the additional $2.74 I can now have all my notes digitized and searchable  for the future.

I still haven’t found a replacement for my favorite Mont Blanc pen, but not  really looking for one.  So when we meet, look for my Evernote Smart  notebook and my pen, it will hopefully be in use capturing your ideas and  thoughts.

Let me know if you are a fan of Moleskine, Evernote, Mont Blanc or all three.  I’m off to Starbucks to write some ideas down for my next post.

Here is the video demonstration from MoleSkine:
