Day-Free CoverBS Lite (Blue)A5 Size (fits Day-Free Cousin)

    BS Lite is a techo cover that provides superior portability with a snug fit for the monthly notebook techo Day-Free.

    They replicate a popular feature of the standard Hobonichi Techo covers: the “butterfly-stopper” pen-holders that store a pen and keep the cover shut inside your bag.

    Its snug fit around the slimmer A5 size Day-Free notebook is easy to see and feel—this cover is thin and light, making it comfortable to carry around.

    The cover material is a high-quality, sturdy polyester. It’s lightweight but durable, so it will last a long time.

    The blue cover is a refreshing and intellectual shade of blue that’s reminiscent of the Day-Free notebook itself. This color is surprisingly uncommon and shows how the techo explores limitless possibilities.

    BS Lite has a single bookmark with a faux leather charm at the end.

    The ivory-colored pen-holders in BS Lite are small, at only 13 mm tall, but can both hold a single pen by its clip.

    The cover interior includes two “smile pockets” that can hold a business card lengthwise, and a “ticket pocket” that can hold bulkier items.

    The BS Lite is simple but powerfully portable, so it can accompany you anywhere.

    Please Read Before You Buy

    In order to provide you with the most satisfaction for your product, we've compiled a list of warnings, potential issues, and tips to keep in mind for this particular product. Please be sure to read this information carefully before placing your order.

    Actual specifications may vary from listing

    Each item is individually assembled and sewn by hand by a factory worker. Best efforts are made to ensure consistent sizes and specifications, but there may be slight differences.

    Color and print may vary slightly

    This material is first printed or dyed and then later sewn onto the cover. While colors are designed to be consistent, there may be uneven coloring or slight shade variances between covers. This may also happen across a single cover, such as a pocket compared to the rest of the cover. In addition, on rare occasions, there may be small black or white dots visible on the print. This is an unavoidable aspect of the manufacturing process.

    Cover may contain variations in stitching or loose lining

    When this cover is open flat, exterior stitching areas may appear puckered and lining material may be loose.

    Avoid storing in hot and humid places

    Please avoid storing your product in hot, humid places or placing it atop other objects for long periods of time as this may result in lower quality and color stains.

    Cannot be used with Cover on Cover

    This product cannot be used with the Cover on Cover, as they do not fit in size.

    About the pen hook

    The pen hook is designed to hold a pen by its clip.

    Compatible book types

    When this cover is used with the Cousin Avec book, the cover may feel tight as the thickness of the spine is different from the Day-Free.
