Nero's Notes

Subscriptions

Posted by Stuart Lennon on

We are very proud of our subscription boxes here at Nero's Notes. The subscription box is our opportunity to curate some gorgeous stationery to surprise and delight our customers. We get a commitment to buy in advance, and in return, we can ensure that the retail value of the box surpasses the price paid. Win-win, right? The reality of this system is that monthly subscribers end up with six pocket notebooks per month. Inevitably, this leads to people being forced from their homes by a collection of paper books that grows faster than they can use them. That makes no...

Nero's Notes

Posted by Stuart Lennon on

Woof. As quick as that, it was done. Pocket Notebooks is now Nero's Notes.  Why? Well, there are several reasons. 1. As the range of products that we stock continues to grow, navigation of the site becomes ever more important and ever more difficult to manage.

I have a weird voice. I came to this realisation a while ago. It is at the forefront of my mind because of an app called Anchor.  I found it on the recommendation of Myke Hurley, co-founder of Relay.fm, my favourite podcast channel. The premise of Anchor is straightforward; I can record and broadcast my thoughts, simply by speaking into my phone. So I have.

2018 Plans!

Posted by Stuart Lennon on

Welcome to 2018! I love Hogmanay. I always feel energised and optimistic as we enter a New Year. It’s a time to put aside the failures and disappointments of the year passed and learn the lessons that life handed out, however brutally. January is a month for making plans, drawing up project outlines and setting targets. I took over PoNo on the 1st of February 2017, so the end of the month will mark the end of my first full trading year too. Pencils are being sharpened and numbers crunched. 2018 is going to be busy here at PoNo Towers....
