Every Field Notes Practical Application


The back cover of the Field Notes notebooks usually contains a list of practical applications. These applications offer suggestions on potential use. Someone on the Field Nuts Facebook group once randomly commented that they wished there was a complete listing of the Field Notes Practical Applications from the Colors Editions listed somewhere. Well, here you go! I’ve listed out the practical application section for every Field Notes Colors Edition right here for your viewing pleasure.

*It’s important to note that the Practical Application list did not appear on 3 colors editions: FNC-19 Night Sky, FNC-23 Arts and Sciences, and FNC-26 Two Rivers.

*Also note that the practical applications are the same for 9 of the first 11 colors editions. They are the same applications listed on the normal kraft notebooks. For the FNC-01 Butcher Orange, FNC-02 Butcher Extra Blue, FNC-03 Grass Stain Green, FNC-04 Mackinaw Autumn, FNC-05 Just Below Zero, and FNC-06 Packet of Sunshine, FNC-09 Balsam Fir (“Kraft Green” Edition), FNC-10 Dry Transfer Edition, and FNC-11 American Tradesman they are as follows:

FNC-01 – FNC-06, FNC-09 – FNC-11

About me

I'm just a guy who loves Field Notes Brand notebooks. I'm on a journey to use one of each edition, starting with FNC-27 Workshop Companion. I'll end up eventually using the first colors edition, the coveted Butcher Orange. I am not affiliated with Field Notes, I just love to use their notebooks.
