    The new paper band design for 2011 planners helps to identify planners as distinct from other Moleskine collections and help consumers easily find what they are looking for in the multitude of Moleskine products. Each paper band now includes three languages and display new colors to identify the planner collection and its layouts.  With larger icons and descriptions on the paper band a shopper can quickly find what they are looking for.  If more information is needed, the Visual Code appears on the back band for reference.
