If you are a writer who storyboard's with index cards, you must consider these bleachers. Most writers I know use 3×5 cards as a staple for productive storyboarding. They are easy to write on, small enough to port around and make us look like we are actually accomplishing something. I had two big challenges with the cards (Other than writing to much on them). I would pin or (gasp) tape them to the wall beside my computer. My second challenge was, once attached to the wall, it was difficult to move plot points around and even worse try to detach them for a trip…(scotch tape…not pretty on painted walls) I stumbled across the answer to all my problems, Levenger's Bleachers and 3×5 cards. The bleacher is made from high quality wood in two colors (dark and light cherry), is stylish and has storage in the back for extra cards and pens. I can easily tote it around. If I could suggest anything to Levenger it would be a carrying case to protect the wood, because mine shows the battle scars of travel. I am thinking of buying another so I have one that moves and another that looks pretty on my desk.

Storyboarding on it is a breeze. I can organize the cards on different levels or dedicate one of the six levels for each thread. I can keep everything about the character I am working on up, and follow their logline. I like the tactile feeling of moving the cards, more concrete than cyberspace. How you use it is up to you! I purchased their blank window 3×5 cards. I like the heavier quality and ultra bright white color of their cards. I found it easy to customize my character, plot and setting card templates onto them. They also printed through my ink jet without a problem. Levenger has also created organizers, file folders and storage boxes that provide no-brainer organization to the vast amounts of cards that I produce. My biggest challenge is trying to talk my kids out of using up my stock, they love the cards too. Levenger has great customer service and easy on line ordering from their well designed website. They also have a great catalog that I enjoy thumbing through and drooling over. If you are a writer and share an appreciation for fabulous supplies…this is the place for you…

I purchased one of these for my office/studio. I live by Levenger's 3 by 5 card system, so it was a must buy! After about a year, the veneer on the sides started to buckle. The stand does not sit in the sun, and we have lived in the same house/climate. My guess is that the wood was not cured properly, and thus pushed out for shipment prematurely. It's a beautiful piece, but is not up to the Levenger quality that I have come to love...

Beautiful and Empowering

Comments about Levenger Note Card Bleachers:

I'm so happy I finally bought this! After years of looking at it, and years of scattered sticky notes, index cards, and note pads strewn about my desk, I'm finally feeling the groove of actually articulating and clearly seeing what my priorities and tasks are. It's pretty exciting.... The piece is beautifully crafted. I like the wells in the back and also that the bleachers create a little private space for me and my brain to interact. The cards are a nice touch to include the card samples too. Classic Levenger class.

A great task organizer

By 

from Longmont, CO

Comments about Levenger Note Card Bleachers:

I got this as a gift for my husband, who likes to be able to see his "to do" lists. He was keeping a journal, but had to page through it each day. This lets him have cards for each project and he can re-organize them in the stands depending on what's more urgent. But he also can have his eye on what's next. In addition to being functional, it's also an elegant desktop addition.

Excellent workmanship but really large

By 

from Orange County, CA

Comments about Levenger Note Card Bleachers:

I like this product, It is functional and made very well. I would really like it if there were a half size model. If the made the same size unit and either made it half as wide or better yet half as tall it would be less bulky for my desk. I have a very large desk but when this bleacher is almost full it is pretty ominous.

Versatile and elegant desk accessory

Comments about Levenger Note Card Bleachers:

I have had my eye on this lovely piece for years and with holidays sales finally acquired one. I use it for my notes and index cards, but I also use it to display photographs, greeting cards and appointment cards. Pretty much anything I would like to look at and keep at hand in a visual montage, as well as useful items, in a small space. One can make use of the slot as well as the space behind it. My work desk is small. The bleachers add functionality and creative opportunity in a small space.

No More Desk Full of Sticky Notes

By 

from Oakland, CA

Comments about Levenger Note Card Bleachers:

These note card bleachers are terrific. I have this annoying habit of writing notes and follow-up items on sticky-notes and by the end of the day, I have sticky-notes all over my desk and nothing is organized. It's been driving me nuts. I've been eyeing the note card bleachers for a while and finally took the plunge. I love them. I write notes on 3x5 cards and now my desk is clear. I can look at the bleachers and see every note I've written. I can organize and re-organize the notes according to priority and because I can see everything visually, the high number of follow-up items feels much more manageable. The quality of the bleachers is excellent and the design is timeless and aesthetically pleasing. I an thrilled with this product and find my productivity and efficiency has increased because I am so much more organized. I'd highly recommend this product.

I'm an author and I love this to keep me organized. It really helps me keep my research, character sketches and other notes handy and in sight while I'm writing. When it went on sale I got a couple more for other desks around the house. A writer's best friend!

Such a nifty thing!

By

Comments about Levenger Note Card Bleachers:

When these went on sale I ordered two in the natural finish. I'd been looking at this item for awhile, but when I started getting overwhelmed at work with multi-colored sticky notes covering my desktop, I knew I needed a better system. I use one at work for ongoing and growing tasks. Sometimes I start a seemingly small project (create such-and-such document) and it gets postponed or the tasks associated with it grow and even spawn new projects. With the Behance action cards, the to-do list index cards and the graph paper index cards for sketching, I'm finally able to visualize many and inter-related tasks and projects. I love that these bits of information can be re-arranged and their draw order or priority edited. It's like a 3D task list with the ability to color code and edit, and even hit "undo."

Each bleacher comes with two sampler packs of 75 3x5 cards - 25 full page lined, 25 to-do, and 25 graph paper. This is the icing on the cake! Very generous and much appreciated!!

I am so impressed with how beautiful and well made this guy is. If you can't tell from the photos, the profile is slightly curved. This makes the unit a little more difficult to tip over. I also appreciate the design intent that went into the back of the unit. You have storage for cards and pens. Brilliant! I really don't think it could get any better. So like another reviewer said, order two!

I use my second unit for studying flash cards and their content's associated sketches/diagrams. This would be an incredible treat for anyone who loves organization and task visualization and it would make a lovely gift for graduate students, professionals pursuing licensure or in exam prep, designers, creative writers, project managers, and any executive or upper management that manages multiple ongoing projects and likes to see the big picture. Come to think of it, administrative professionals who have to keep busy and brilliant people on task would also benefit from utilizing a desktop task management system.

Capacity: I'm able to safely fit 13-15 vivacious 250-gm cards per row without feeling that I'm stressing the wood or crimping my cards. If you're using the 110-lb colored cards or the 250-gm cards you may be able to stagger a few more per row. I can safely fit 3 vivacious cards on top of each other at any row on the bleacher, and 5 sets of these per row. That comes out to a capacity of 90 (possibly 100 lighter weight) cards.

I give it 4 stars on style because I'd like another color option, like white or black or gray.

Comments about Levenger Note Card Bleachers:

Until I bought this I had cards just stacked up on my desk, now I can see everything and keep track and update as needed no more hunting through a pile to find the card I need.

My job requires going in a million directions at once and I can't let anything slip through the cracks. I was fairly organized but this tool has helped me tremendously. High quality product. Everything is easy to see, prioritize and change. I would recommend. Wish I had discovered years ago

Formative assessments

By 

from New York

Site Member

Comments about Levenger Note Card Bleachers:

As a teacher, I am always looking for ways to make my life easier. I use the notecard bleachers for formative assessments. I have 20 cards, each labeled with a students name, and when I notice a student struggling with a skill or concept, I pick their card and jot down a quick note. For example, on Juan's card it says, "using "another" with plural nouns." Ana is putting commas after conjunctions. Maria is having trouble knowing when to use "how much" vs. "how many." William never remembers to start each sentence with a capital letter. Elsa uses very generic adjectives in her writing. When I plan lessons, I review the cards and this information helps me plan what needs to be taught or reviewed. If many students are having the same problem, I do a group lesson. If only one student is struggling, I do a mini-conference with that child and help him or her individually.

With large groups of students, I notice their problems during class, but by the end of the day, I often forget the specifics of who needs what. This system helps me keep track of my observations. After the child has mastered a skill, I check it off so I know I no longer need to focus there.

I have tried other methods of keeping track of daily observations, none of which have really worked. iPads are too slow! By the time I enter my password, pull up an app, and then go to the correct student, the class has become restless! Clip boards with paper force me to shuffle through 20 pages to find that student's name. Putting daily observations in my plan book doesn't work because there is not enough space and I end up writing around margins. It's then almost impossible to find the student-specific info. Using a spiral notebook didn't work because I end up writing too much. One year I tried using large mailing labels, each with a student's name. This was cumbersome and I ended up filling-up pages of student files with mailing label stickers. Last year I tried writing notes on my big desk pad, but it just made my desk look messy. The worst solution I tried was making up a "log" that I filled in at the end of each day. For some reason, I resented filling in a log and felt it wasted time that could have been spent planning great lessons or locating interesting books to read.

The bleacher system is quick, efficient, useful, easy to use, and intuitive. It helps me make sure each child is reaching goals and no one is getting lost in the hectic school day.
