X17 - The only "real ring notebook" because only X17 uses real rings!

X17 Notebook: Your notebook for everything.

Each X17 Notebook can hold two to four insert booklets. We currently have 15 different types of insert booklets for each format size and are continually adding more insert booklets to our selection.
That's why an X17 Notebook can be used for anything! For example, you can use it as a:

  1. Personal Planner
  2. Notebook
  3. Diary
  4. Idea Notebook
  5. Appointment Planner
  6. Time Planner
  7. Calendar
  8. Household Notebook
  9. Teacher's Calendar
  10. Address Book
  11. Hiking/Backpacking Journal
  12. Pilgrimage Journal
  13. Traveling Journal
  14. Personal Organizer
  15. And much, much more.

X17 uses a book-by-book system, which means that we use bounded insert booklets rather than loose-leaf insert pages. Strong and flexible rubber band rings hold these insert booklets perfectly in place along the binding of your X17 Notebook. The idea is so simple that one asks oneself, why didn't anyone come across this idea earlier?

One Idea - Four Uses

At the very beginning, our goal was to develop an alternative to the "traditional ring notebook". We wanted to design a notebook that wasn't so bulky, that wasn't so thick, and that would allow you to freely and easily write on the left-hand side of the page. And that's how our X17 Notebook came into being, initially planned as a personal organizer with a calendar.

Then the idea took off and developed a whole new set of dynamics. More and more ideas began to surface for other ways to use this new notebook technology. New applications for the notebook were added to the design plan, for example, a concept for a teachers' planner and a pilgrimage journal. We are currently developing our newest concept for a family calendar and industry customers are working on their own concepts as well.

  1. X17 Notebook: Includes 2,3 or 4 insert booklets.
  2. X17-Notes: Notebook with exactly one insert booklet.
  3. X-Cards: Notebook = Postcard with one insert booklet.
  4. X-Cards: Art Gallery - Customizable Notebook

X17-Notes - Notebooks Reinvented

Less is more - especially when it comes to something that you always need to carry with you. X17-Notes are fitted with one insert booklet, which is bounded in a paper cover.

This notebook technology opens up the door to new possibilities: Having a notebook with a high-quality leather cover, having a very slim notebook that could become your new friend for life!

X17-Notes: The Contents Change, But The Cover Remains

Standard notebooks usually contain loose-leaf pages that can be filed after they have been used.

This system, however, most often leads to using cheap materials for the notebook cover, instead of high-quality materials (Moleskine uses a simple plastic material for its covers). Cheap materials are often used by other companies because they want their customers to purchase an entirely new notebook after the old one has been used up.

With X17-Notes, this is all different. Our notebook covers are high-quality covers that can be reused over and over. Whether you choose to purchase our leather covers, leather fiber covers or polypropylene covers, these sturdy covers will stay with you year after year and offer you the flexibility of changing your insert booklet contents without having to buy an entirely new notebook!

Our notebooks are not only very slim but also very light-weight, making them the perfect size for sending in the mail.

X-Cards are a notebook and a postcard put together, making it as easy to mail a notebook to a friend or loved one with a nice postcard greeting on the front!

Our postcards are available in a countless number of fun and colorful motifs or with memorable sayings printed on them.

We asked many amateur photographers, together with Christian Marzian (Imagnaro), to contribute photos and sayings to this project and have assembled the best of these together in our Art Gallery: X17-kunsthalle.de.

With X-Cards you get a notebook-postcard with modern, colorful motifs or memorable sayings printed on them. X-Cards also allows you to create an individualized notebook from our X17 Art Gallery.

We have two distinct styles to choose from:
