A5 X Graph Paper Notebook

$ 13.99

LAYS PERFECTLY FLAT AT 180 DEGREES: Our A5 X graph paper notebook has been designed to stay completely flat on its own. The grid notebook 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 graph notebook journal is ideal for graphing, math, notes, diagrams, or mock-ups in the engineering field. Aside from its smart minimalist look, the tasteful cream-colored graph pages inside provide a pleasing and enjoyable surface to write on. Measures: 5-⅞ x 8.25 inches.

158 PAGES OF PREMIUM PAPER: Fountain pen lovers take note! This grid paper notebook comes with 158 pages of high-quality 80 GSM smooth paper that’s resistant to feathering and bleed-throughs. The 5mm graph grid is unobtrusive with the perfect balance of being prominent enough without getting in the way.

STURDY CARD STOCK COVER: The graph composition notebook 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.

Great notebook

I wish the graph paper was full page, but a small margin is fine. I love the open spine, lay flat note book.

Truly Lay Flat notebook!

I purchased from Northbooks previously and was very impressed. This time, I wanted a journal without a spiral, but would still "lay flat" to write. The notebook is wonderful! Regrets: I wish it were made in America - the original reason I was drawn to Northbooks.

Hi Julie!

Northbooks here. We want to say a HUGE thanks for this lit review. The exposed spine allows the A5 X to truly lay flat and make it easy to use! We've worked hard on the A5 X's layflat design, so it's gratifying to hear that we met your standards.

All of our Northbooks prior to our latest A5 X style were (and are presently) designed, sourced, and made in the USA. We at Northbooks always wanted to create notebooks with features that our US suppliers could not deliver. We didn't aim to simply move production abroad for the A5 X, or to lessen manufacturing costs to try and increase our profits. We really had difficulties looking for a supplier that can create the layflat design. We still wanted to make a better notebook product, one that we've been striving to create since we started on this journey with Northbooks journals. The first result of these efforts is the A5 X Northbook that lays perfectly flat, has an exposed spine, and contains neatly numbered pages, designed in the US and made in Taiwan.

We're still trying to find a US supplier that can create the A5 X layflat design, but we're thankful that you gave it a shot! We're lucky we have customers like you that trust Northbooks with new endeavors. :)
