Dots Vegan Leather Hardcover 5x8 Notebook, 192 Pages

$ 10.99

  • SIMPLE, YET SOPHISTICATED: Our 5 x 8 inch notebooks are the perfect size for journaling, daily planning, or note taking, either at your desk or on the go. No constraints and no distractions -- just a high-quality notebook you will love. Northbooks are elegant, yet competitively priced. We put function first -- allowing you to bring back the joy of writing by hand.
  • DURABLE, YET ATTRACTIVE: Our elegant vegan leather cover is textured and durable. It features a silky smooth touch and square corners for a sophisticated look. The soft cream color of our pages does not distract from the writing, allowing you to effortlessly read your notes in even direct sunlight. Our hardcover notebooks are able to lie almost completely flat once broken in.
  • ARCHIVAL QUALITY: 192 pages/96 sheets of 60-lb/90 GSM 30% recycled paper that resists feathering, ghosting, and bleeding, without any extra bulk. Our paper is thick, smooth, and acid-free, and makes an elegant backdrop for whatever media you use. Minimal ghosting may occur with very wet inks. Alcohol-based markers are not recommended.
  • THE PERFECT BULLET JOURNAL This notebook is great for both starter and seasoned bullet-journalists. Our dot grid pages help guide your writings, while staying out of the way of your drawings. Our dots, spaced 5mm apart, are light enough to blend in once the page is filled.
  • MADE WITH PRIDE: We are a small US-based company, working directly with customers to create the highest quality product we can. We know what is important to you and we are dedicated to staying sustainable, versatile, and practical. We were founded in New York and are proud to keep our entire design and manufacturing process right here in the USA.

Great Notebook
Hi Brian! Northbooks here. Thank you for giving Northbooks a shot! We're honored you chose our Dots Hardcover as your first real notebook. :) We really appreciate you sharing your experience with using Staedtler Pigment Liners -- this should help curious members in our Northbooks community who want to use the same brand. We've worked hard to get the page quality right to avoid bleeding, so it's great hearing it's working out well. If you're interested in a similar product, you may want to check out our A5X Notebooks. They are not technically hardcovers, but they have stiff durable card stock covers. The sewn spine is exposed, which helps the book to stay open and each page to lay perfectly flat! You might find it more fitting with your writing. Thank you again for your feedback. Welcome the the Northbooks family! - Team Northbooks
Love It!
Hi Yestli! Northbooks here. We are incredibly grateful that you took the time out to leave us this feedback. We've worked hard to ensure each notebook we release is premium quality. This is great encouragement for us to keep doing what we do best -- that is, making great notebooks. Welcome to the Northbooks family, and we look forward to serving you again!
