I work for Golder Associates Ltd. We are a “global, employee-owned organisation providing independent consulting, design and construction services in our specialist areas of earth, environment and energy.” My current role is a Technical Editor for a dedicated client team. I’ve been with them for five years. In those five years I’ve received five journals and today I wanted to share them with you.

three journals

I have received five journals in total: two of the large leather refillable journal on the right, one of the brown journal, and two of the small green journal.

Inside the leather refillable. I use this at work all the time, so it has my business cards in the pocket and one of my pens.

This is the pen that came with the journal. Notice it has the same sewn detail as the pen. I like the look of the pen but it does not stay released when I try to write with it. I turn the barrel until the pen appears but then when I start to write the point goes back into the pen. Most annoying. But that’s a ballpoint for you!

The paper is pretty thin but it ‘s not bad.

So the journal is made by Hampton, and it’s nice of them to list where to find the refills.

Sorry for the blurriness; on my phone it looked fine. This journal I received this year. I love the color, and the fact that you can stick a pen in the binding.

And this is where the pen lives in the binding. Just like my Cross Journal.

Nice ruled pages with brown lines – and they are perforated which is a nice detail. I wish it was refillable though.

Back cover. Another one made in China, by Spector and Co.

small green journal

This is the small green journal. Love the color but not crazy about the journal itself.

It doesn’t lie flat at all. Very disappointing.

Genuine Leather and again made in China.

So there you have it. Golder is very good to give out these journals and other gifts; I really do appreciate them. It’s nice to be thanked for your efforts.
