Pocket Protectors


mental_floss promotion

Kit includes 1 handmade vinyl pocket protector, 50 letterpress notecards and 1 really awesome pen

In these three pocket protector kit styles offered exclusively through Mental Floss, AnneBVinyl gives knowledge junkies and fashionerds a means to put their nerd pride on display AND a convenient way to jot down all those brilliant ideas that can strike with little or no warning.

Anne took the “floss edition” exclusive kits a step further by designing a special set of 50 notecards – 10 each of 5 styles. From her collection of vintage type and using the press she has in her 1910 farmhouse’s basement studio, Anne’s “mental_floss” and “BOSS” cards use typefaces and the other three use ornamental pieces, including the “FIRST CLASS” piece that had a previous life in actual commercial printing. On top of how cool all of that is, we agree with Anne that one of the ornamental designs looks a little like a mustache and, well, we like that.

Style descriptions:
1. Deep red sparkle vinyl with black/grey Day of the Dead oilcloth
