  • PQ Style: What is the Difference Between a Rucksack and a Backpack?

    Well... the answer to that is a bit complicated. When we researched the difference between a rucksack and a backpack, we got a huge list of dissenting opinions. We got to the bottom of it and aim to uncomplicate this age-old debate.

    Do you remember learning in school how all squares are rectangles, but not all rectangles are squares? That's pretty much what happened with rucksacks and backpacks. Essentially, a rucksack is a kind of backpack.

    Rusty on your geometry skills? No worries, let's break it down. We'll define what makes a rucksack a rucksack, and it's similarities to a backpack, and what splits the difference.

  • Happy Thanksgiving from Pad & Quill : A Personal Note from Our Family to Yours

     

    thanksgiving pad and quill

    We at Pad & Quill and the Bindery Blog want to wish you a very happy Thanksgiving this year. 2016 has been quite a year for us, growing and adapting to new iPhones and MacBooks and trying to understand the Air Pods. It’s been a crazy year but we wouldn’t be where we are today without you!

    We’ve grown from a little company in Mr. and Mrs. PQ’s basement to a full-fledged small business that works hard to make crafted art. When we started those many years ago, we were just a little company with big dreams. With plenty of hard work and wonderful customers, we've been overjoyed with getting to continue to grow our brand. We are thankful for magazines like the New York Times and Wired for reviewing and featuring us, helping us grow each and every day.

    Sure, Apple gave us courage this year. But we’ve also learned the importance of adapting our products for everyone in our ever growing family. We've been pushed to be more creative and intuitive with each new release from Apple. From pencils to missing headphone jacks, we've been excited to design new products for each new step in innovation.

    It’s our busiest time at Pad & Quill but we are already planning out 2017 and we are so excited that you’ve joined us on this journey. We’re thankful for you and we can’t wait to make even more memories in the years to come. While our holidays are plenty busy, we haven't forgotten our loyal customers, who have sometimes felt more like family over the years. We're constantly thankful for your many jokes, ideas and praise.

    So bundle up your iPhone and pack your backpack, we wish you safe travels and good conversations. We can’t wait to keep innovating for you for years to come.

    A happy Thanksgiving from us here at Pad and Quill! May your day be filled with good food, family, friends, and joy.

    Sincerely,

    The entire Pad & Quill family

  • A Leather Apple Watch Cuff As Old As Time... Or At Least As Old As Elvis

    When we found out we could get our hands on a select stock of vintage leather from Europe, we didn’t just buy a little bit of it, we bought it all. Hailing from the 1950s with a beautiful patina color we created a leather Apple Watch cuff that will mold to your wrist and age with you and your watch. The Limited Edition 60 Year Luxury Leather Lowry Cuff for Apple Watch Series 1 & Series 2 comes from the time of Elvis, The Civil Rights Movement, and the Lindy and stands out as a cuff meant to last for years to come.
