Chic Sparrow TN & Insert Size Chart

TRAVELERS NOTEBOOK SIZE CHART

Select the notebook size below to see the dimensions of the leather notebook cover, TN insert size and holding capacity. These insert measurements are optimal but you may use inserts both 1/4” inch (0.6 cm) wider and/or taller and they will fit inside of Chic Sparrow Travelers Notebooks.

Please note that our products sell quickly and not all sizes are currently available at Chic Sparrow. If you have questions regarding travelers notebook sizes, please email customer service: support@chicsparrow.com

A Note From the Designer: Overall, my notebooks are slightly wider than the common, allowing for no overhang if you follow these guidelines. Your notebook edges will be fully protected. - J.H.

IF YOU ALREADY HAVE TN INSERTS

Measure them carefully and find the size that is the closest match on the chart below. If you are between two notebook sizes, always choose the larger one.  Next, stack the number of inserts you’d like to use and measure how thick they are together.  This tells you how thick your spine will be when your notebook wraps around the inserts. Compare this to the width of the notebook you’re considering.  

For example, if you are using inserts that are 4.5” x 8.25”, and your stack of inserts is 1” high, you’d know you’d need the Narrow size. But if your stack is larger than 1”, you’d want to go up to the Wide.
