THE GIFT OF STYLISH PRODUCTIVITY: MONTBLANC AUGMENTED PAPER BRINGS EFFICIENCY AND ELEGANCE TO THE WORKPLACE WITH TRENDY NEW DESIGNS

Montblanc adds brand new styles and functions to its writing tool just in time for the holidays

Work is more efficient and enjoyable with Montblanc Augmented Paper, pairing the enjoyment of a real Montblanc writing experience on paper with the efficiency of digitizing work so that it can be organized and shared from everywhere. Seamlessly bridging online and offline worlds, this simple and highly functional work companion gives its owners the freedom to unleash their creativity by using a writing instrument and paper, rather than being constrained to only express thoughts and ideas with mouse and keyboard. By integrating traditional writing into the digital workflow, written notes and sketches can be instantly transferred from paper to a digital device with the simple press of a button. Augmented Paper comes in the form of a leather envelope or zipper case that contains a notebook and a writing instrument.

The ideal holiday gift for anyone who enjoys the beauty and freedom of a fine writing experience, Augmented Paper brings a touch of sophistication and style to the work place with the arrival of three trendy designs: Green/Grey Camouflage, Blue/Grey Camouflage and Urban Spirit Racing. The bold designs of the fun new leather zipper styles complement the existing assortment of sartorial envelopes crafted from indigo or red leather.

For the creative users of Augmented Paper who want to always feel fashionable while being productive, the new camouflage patterned Saffiano leather print in two different colour combinations is an unapologetic style statement. The full closure system of the new zipper case gives the all-in-one writing companion a modern design twist. A fresh interpretation of vintage racing style designed for the hectic and unexpected pace of city life, the Augmented Paper Urban Spirit of Racing combines smooth and perforated soft leather, and features a special jacquard lining with red-on-black detailing.

With the addition of the new Live Mode function, the content written or sketched on Augmented Paper can be viewed in real-time through the Montblanc Hub app, making it ideal for projecting text or visuals to an audience live on a screen. In addition to handwriting recognition in 11 languages including English, German, Russian, Spanish, Italian and Chinese, the Augmented Paper technology gives users the ability to:

  • Digitize – convert handwritten notes from analogue to digital
  • Edit – edit and organize digitalized notes for a more productive experience
  • Present – write on paper and show it on screen with the Live Mode function
  • Share – export notes in different formats and share them
  • Tag – add tags to notes for a better organized library in the Montblanc Hub
  • Search – find notes easily with the search function

The Montblanc Hub application also features a note-taking function that can be used independently from the Augmented Paper. Files can be transferred and notes edited when the Augmented Paper is connected, the app can also be used to create digital notes when it is not connected. The Ink Color function gives the possibility to digitise text or sketches in different colours, regardless of the colour used on paper.

The long battery life allows up to 8 hours of continuous use and up to a week of regular work use offering the ability to store of up to 100 pages in its internal storage. Unlike a tablet or laptop that can only be accessed when the battery is charged, the digital note serves as a backup to the paper and vice versa. It makes an ideal travel companion as the small form factor makes work easy in more constrained spaces whether on a plane or on a train, without the sounds and distractions of constant notifications.

A high performance work companion, Montblanc Augmented Paper delivers a distinctive Montblanc writing experience while giving any professional or creative access to all of his or her notes and sketches, easily and conveniently stored within one mobile app. It features a leather envelope or sipper case that includes the electronic digitizer, a writing instrument, a notebook with lined paper, a USB cable to charge the device, 3 ballpoint refills and tweezers to exchange the refills.
