Van Der Spek Touch Me binders back in stock!


New improved Touch Me’s !! You can order them now on

The Touch Me Standard is back in stock in brown and black and also the Manager A5 in brown.
They’re specially made for the bigger rings to fit perfectly. So the standard size is now also available with the 30mm rings and the Manager A5 with the 35mm rings.
Despite the new improvements we will keep the same prices for the rest of this year!!
But the 1st of January 2015 there will be a price increase, also on the Custom made collection. So be fast 

And you can also order the zipped pencil pouch many people already saw in Janet’s posts 

See Steve’s post about it on Philofaxy!

  1. Thanks Janet…
    Will you be able to share a photo to show me the size comparison? I am trying to visualize it and see if it works for me 🙂 There aren’t many blogs or videos online to talk about those two binders….

  2. Hi Janet, I am searching for a wallet with planner functionality. I just ordered a filofax malden zip compact ( thank u for your post) and now came across this VDS touch me ( I m thing about senior size? Close to filofax compact right?) which one in ur opinion will b better suited to use as a wallet? How is the material compares to each other? The price is almost the same, yet without be able to have both on hand, it I’d very hard to compare. Don’t think there is any where in usa carry VDS.

    1. No you are right, there are no VDS stockists in the US. For myself I would recommend the Touch Me as it has full functionality for both. I found the Malden Zip compact a bit of both but not total functionality for either – the planner part was too squashed in, the rings not big enough and the wallet part was not big enough. I need a planner to lay flat so the Malden Compact Zip was not for me for everyday use. The Senior size is not a Filofax size so finding refills is a bit hard but I have an article listing A6 stockists on my blog. It is a bit bigger than the pocket size and a bit smaller than personal.

      Hope this helps!
