Aluminum Circa Discs 1 set of 11
BRING ON THE SMALLER SIZES...(please!)
I find these easier to use but the problem for me is that the larger ones aren't the ones that get jammed- it's the smaller ones- I'd LOVE and buy in bulk if you had these in 1/4 and 1/2 inch sizes. I'm begging...

I have used a Levenger Notebook off and on for about 3 years and no one ever commented on it. I knew I needed larger discs as my notebook content was growing. I read the reviews and decided to purchase the 1" aluminum Caribbean discs to go with the color of my notebook. In the past week, I have already had three people ask me about my notebook and where they could purchase one. I didn't know discs could make such a difference.

Not as Pictured
The picture of this product gives the impression that the gold discs are a polish finish when in fact the finish is a matte finish. Disappointed...

Elegant style & function
I managed to get these gorgeous discs in the beautiful red color. Red is my favorite color, and these beautiful discs did not disappoint. I work as a busy scheduler in a doctors' office and I have to keep up with a lot of information---and the only way I can do it is with the help of the Circa system. Both co-workers and many patients have commented on these gorgeous red discs. My cover, paper, and pockets turn freely & smoothly around these discs. I was fortunate to get them on sale through the Boston sore---they were so friendly and helpful over the phone. Even though it is something of an investment to get started with the Circa system, I have found it to be absolutely indispensable for me. If you are on the fence about these discs--don't worry, you won't be disappointed! I am thinking about getting these beautiful discs in another color. Well done, Levenger!!

I've come to like the Circa system very much and have incorporated it as my primary note taking and project organization tool. As such, my notebook is fairly full and gets carried with me everywhere. I purchased the metal rings for their aesthetics and based on the reviews. I like their appearance very much and the pages do turn much easier with the metal rings. I've come to find that the ease of turning is due to smaller dimensions which also makes the notebook much less durable. I'm constantly reinstalling my covers (I have the Junior Leather version) and the first and last few pages as I tote my notebook everywhere with me. If I kept this at my desk and didn't load it as full, these rings would be very nice, but given the amount of material in my notebook and it's travels, these rings just won't cut it.

Glam, fun, oh, and works great too!
These are nice. ~ O.k., I admit it, I'm obsessed with Circa. I bought the starter kit because I needed a new system at work to keep notes on my many projects that run all at once. Put together a notebook and thought, what's the difference between this and a three ring binder. But then, put in dividers, used the tabs to mark each section, created a filing system in the back to keep various notes on each project, added pocket dividers to keep stuff that's not yet punched and then page finders to locate sections quickly. About a week into using it, I knew I'd never go back to the many lame systems that I had tried so many times in the past. But then, because I was so in love, I wanted more than the standard black discs - I needed color - and the purple, aluminum discs are great! I like their smooth performance (pages turn like a dream) and they are light.
But, really - want to know the best part....they are so cool looking and when you set your book down on a table, they make a sweet little ringing noise! O.k., told you I was obsessed - but once you're hooked - you'll also want your own, fun, glam, and oh, really functional discs too!

Gorgeous and functional.
I started with the 3/4" silver aluminum discs, then I bought purple and red 1" discs on subsequent sprees, as I realized the organizational potential of the Circa system. The metal discs allow the paper and the plastic covers to move smoothly, and they look fantastic--the only problem is, my notebooks are growing, and you don't offer the aluminum discs in 1.5" size. Any chance of that happening?

Purple Aluminum Discs are SO Cool
I wanted discs to coordinate with my new Amethyst Foldover but it's been quite difficult to find just the right ones. The Galaxy Aurora are great but have a Cool tone to them versus the warm tone of the Amethyst leather. I had previously purchased a Tombow Rollerball in 'Amethyst' to use with my foldover and would you believe the color of these Purple Discs match that Pen perfectly and ties the whole thing together. It's been interesting using the 1" discs and I've expanded the use of my notebook but... PLEASE make these beautiful colors available in 3/4" for those of us who use several notebooks especially since the new leather foldovers have much thinner circa tabs. I highly recommend these discs as well as the Kyoto & Galaxy Aurora ~ they're worth the extra money to bring joy to each day! =)
