Perfect Notebooks

These have been my daily notebooks since I discovered them. Excellent paper and binding, and swift delivery.

Best Bullet Journal Notebooks

I absolutely love my B5 Northbooks! The graph or dot is my favorite for bullet journaling, and the page count is perfect for planning quarterly. The squares are by 1/2 cm. The paper is high quality, of a nice thickness, and works well with my Zebra Mildliner highlighters, and markers such as the Kuretake ZIG dot markers (no bleed or show-through). Fountain pens work marvelously, drying quickly but not bleeding through. The binding is 3 very sturdy staples, and the books hold together very well--I fold the entire book backwards from time to time, and the binding hasn't even loosened. USA-made quality! I use the plain B5s as sketchbooks as well, and haven't found much I can't do with them--watercolor and ink washes don't sit on the surface OR bleed through (at least not very much unless you make a lake of water), and there's a subtle amount of tooth to the paper to hold pencil drawings very nicely. The B5 size is nice and spacious, but still compact enough to carry around easily in a small bag or purse. Highly recommend Northbooks--can't go wrong with any notebook you pick here!

Just what I wanted!

Exactly what I needed for taking notes at work!

Mama Is Pleased (YAY!)

My mother uses graph paper to design, and these notebooks are exactly what she wanted. The only thing that could possibly make them better, if you're taking design notes, Northbooks, is to use graph paper where the grid lines disappear when the page is scanned/printed. But the lines are much lighter than the paper she previously used so she can see her designs easily, the squares are the perfect size, and the notebooks are easy for an 81-year-old to handle. So when she uses these up, I'll be ordering more for her. She is incredibly happy with them!

Great Notebooks

Just what I was looking for. Sturdy ,low key, good for working in the field.

Minimalist Design. Maximum Quality.

Our books are printed with recycled paper that resists feathering, ghosting, and bleeding without any extra bulk. Our paper is thick, smooth, and acid-free. The soft cream color makes for an elegant, easy to read backdrop for journaling, sketching, creating to do lists, shopping lists, or simple weekly planning.


Buy a Book, Plant a Tree

Sustainability doesn't have to be complicated.

Sure, we use recycled materials in our products and focus on a sustainable supply chain.

But we also like to keep it simple - for every Northbooks order we plant a tree in the rainforest through our partnership with Eden Projects.
