Yesterday, Bryan at Field Notes/Coudal Partners kindly toured us around the world headquarters (AKA their offices in Chicago). We had great time and got to take a peek at the inner workings of Field Notes. It was an all-access pass and I am so thankful that Bryan took time out of his busy schedule to humor me.
Ready for some pictures?
Bryan greeted us at the door, ready to show off all the fabulousness that is Coudal and Field Notes.
Behind the door, was the front desk and sales counter for walk-in customers and pick-up orders. Its a really pretty work space.
Bob peruses some of the leather covers available from Field Notes while I just ogle.
We got to see some of the uncut press sheets from the Arts & Sciences edition. It’s so good to see how much attention to detail they take to get the Field Notes Colors Editions just right.
In the stockroom are piles and piles of the County Fair editions which are some of my favorites. I have sets from every state I’ve lived in.
In the shipping area are bins filled with individual County Fair books for the Road Trip kit.
The packing area is efficient and well-organized and the team was busy packing up orders.
Bins filled with the Arts & Sciences edition buttons sat prominently on the counter in Well-Appointed Desk-approved green bins.
Totally industrial looking stenciled boxed lined the walls.
I had a great time and Bryan was to ally patient with us. Thanks for a great tour!
Expect to find a thank you note in THIS mailbox soon!
