Here’s a question for the Notor fans out there, or anyone with an opinion… next year’s edition of the Notor features blue lines and page markings, rather than the light gray that’s used in the current version. The decision was made in France (I’m told they felt that blue was more youthful), and globally we needed to comply.
But we’ve already gotten a complaint about the new color, and I’m wondering what others think. As our Notor correspondent explained, the lines are there to guide your writing, not to clutter it up:
The small writing to indicate Holidays, etc. ” in blue type it is taking space away from me, as I can not write on top of it, it wouldn’t be legible. On the other hand, the light grey type and ruling I just use as a guideline, and it does not interfere with my writing.
I realize it’s hard to tell from the photograph above, which is why I scanned in a page from each planner:
The blue ink is definitely more intense than the gray, especially at the top and bottom of each page. Does this bother anyone else? If so, please let us know in the comments, and Karen will take your opinions to our annual company meeting in June.
