ated in the Vosges region of France, Clairefontaine was established in 1863 on the site of a 16th century paper mill. The firm is noted for being the first school stationery manufacturer in France, and, to this day, European students from kindergarten through doctoral studies appreciate the fine quality of Clairefontaine's notebooks. The paper is exceptionally white and durable, and the distinctive covers are attractive and sturdy. The company also offers a selection of elegant social stationery.
Parisian social stationery manufacturer since 1919, G. Lalo provides the royal courts of Sweden, Holland and Belgium with hand-crafted stationery. Two aspects of G. Lalo's stationery contribute to its fame:

- The quality of its papers. A paper is selected and allowed to bear G. Lalo's exclusive watermark only after exacting examination of its texture, weight, finish, feel, content and color.

- The elegance of its presentation. G. Lalo's Parisian designers and craftspeople strive to reconcile the age old art of writing with the convenience of today's communications. The result can be seen in both the elegance and practicality of G. Lalo's "Collection" and "Boutique" lines.

Handwriting today is no longer a chore but a privilege of leisure. G. Lalo's stationery is an exclusive gift one owes to oneself and to friends and family.

Vadis has been manufacturing date books and organizers for almost 50 years. Quo Vadis planners are known for their quality construction, sturdiness and practical design. They focus on each person's need to make the most of their time each day. Their signature format–the Agenda Planning Diary® was featured in the Museum de Louvre Industry and Art Exhibition "Great Creations of the 20th Century".

The Agenda Planning Diary was invented by F. G. Bertrami, M.D., in 1954. He had been using date books he found cramped and impractical, ill-adapted to the needs of modern professionals. So, he decided to create his own. It is a system that is simple and easy to use for effective time management. His unique layout sets the agenda for the week, featuring the day's Priority, Special Weekly Action Items, and a space for Daily Notes. It is an indispensable professional tool, allowing for the planning of a week at a single glance.

Quo Vadis products are sold in more than 40 countries and translated into 16 languages, giving our product design and development a global reach and perspective. All Quo Vadis date books sold in North America are printed and manufactured in the United States. Our date book covers are manufactured and finished in Canada.
