A5 X Dotted Bullet Notebook 3 Pack

$ 31.99

LAYS PERFECTLY FLAT AT 180 DEGREES: Our A5 X dotted notebook has been designed to stay completely flat on its own. The dot journal is held together by a special exposed stitch binding that allows it to lay at 180 degrees for an easy lie-flat design regardless of what page it’s opened to.

WELL MADE MINIMALIST DESIGN: The dotted paper notebook is versatile and ideal for bullet journaling, drawing, scribbling ideas, or daily to-dos. Aside from its smart minimalist look, the tasteful cream-colored pages inside provide a pleasing and enjoyable surface to work on. Measures: 5-⅞ x 8.25 inches.

158 PAGES OF PREMIUM PAPER: Fountain pen lovers take note! The dot grid notebook comes with 158 numbered pages of high-quality 80 GSM smooth paper that’s resistant to feathering and bleed-throughs. The best-in-class 5mm dots are subtle and elevating when you need them to be without getting in the way.

STURDY CARD STOCK COVER: The black dotted bullet journal features a protective card stock cover with rounded corners to minimize creasing and damage. It’s sturdy and will hold up fairly well to wear and tear. It feels substantial yet light enough to carry around or pack into a bag.

HIGH-QUALITY CRAFTSMANSHIP: Unlike all of our other notebooks which are designed, sourced, and made in the USA, for our A5 X notebooks we collaborated with our special partner in Taiwan for manufacture to achieve their unique lay-flat design. With every purchase you make, Northbooks plants a tree in the rainforest through our partnership with Eden Projects.

Exactly what I needed - spacious

Coming from the 5x8 northbooks (dotted), this is almost entirely an improvement. I like these a lot.

Things I like:
- more pages
- pages are numbered
- pages are wider
- lay flat binding increases the amount of actual useable space
- I am no longer annoyed when the journal does not lay flat. It lays very flat.
- backing is mostly sturdy enough to write on in lap

Two caveats that don't really apply to me:
- pages are thinner than the 5x8 journals, so I have to use EF nib fountain pens
- cannot fold back over like a spiral or soft cover

Flat open notebooks

Okay, so I already thought that I loved Northbooks. Then I just tried these for the first time. Oh. My. Gosh. What was I waiting for? Northbooks that open flat and stay that way?!?! Now I really won't be using any other notebook ever.

Hi there Sydney,

Thank you for being an early adopter of our new A5 X Northbooks!

We’ve obsessed and worked hard on the A5 X design to perfection. The exposed spine actually allows the A5 X to lay perfectly flat, which makes it easy to write on and more! We’re thankful for the trust and confidence you place in Northbooks for trying out this new line.

Enjoy your layflat Northbook, and welcome the the Northbooks family. :)

Best regards,
Team Northbooks

Excellent for Bullet Journalling

Lays flat, dots make it easy to organize without the cage that is lined paper. Sheets are thin though, so if you like using markers, they bleed through. Gelly pens work well though.

Hey Kayleigh,

Thank you for being an early adopter of our new A5 X Northbooks!

We’ve obsessed and worked hard on the A5 X design to perfection (looks like we hit the 'layflat' feature!). The exposed spine actually allows the A5 X to lay perfectly flat, which makes it easy to write on and more!

We’re happy to hear that our paper is performing well for you and your gelly pens— this is great information for curious members of our Northbooks community. We always work hard to make high quality notebooks, and hearing such praise from our customers makes the hard work worth it.

Enjoy your layflat Northbook, and welcome the the Northbooks family. :)

Best regards,
Team Northbooks

A5 X Dotted Bullet Notebook 3 Pack

I love this notebook more than life itself

Back for a three-pack of these little guys after filling up my first one. Been journaling/bullet/writing everything by hand for many years and have tried many notebooks. This is my favorite. Been through them all and this is by far the best for my needs. The thing I like most about this journal is the size (smaller than my previous favorite, but still large enough for everything I need) and lay-flat binding. The binding is awesome because you can lay a full-size ruler across both pages at the same time. Toss it in the bag, good to go. Dotted pages are THE WAY! If you like little, durable journals that offer great flexibility in page layout you will not be disappointed with this one. Thanks for an excellent product Northbooks. I hope you sell a lot of these.
