Squares A5 Softcover

$ 9.99

SIMPLE AND SOPHISTICATED: Our A5 graph paper notebook has been outlined with the perfect grid line paper and a sophisticated, minimalist style design that’s elegant and pleasing to the eye. The squared notebook graph journal is ideal for graphing, math, notes, diagrams, or mock-ups in the engineering field.

144 PAGES OF PREMIUM PAPER: The grid journal comes with 144 pages/72 sheets of high-quality USA sourced 60 lb/90 GSM, 30% recycled cream paper that’s resistant to feathering, ghosting, and bleeding. The 5mm graph grid is unobtrusive with the perfect balance of being prominent enough without getting in the way.

STURDY, FLEXIBLE SOFTCOVER: The sewn binding on this softcover journal notebook gives it a feel of a finely bound book. The outer cover uses 30% post-consumer recycled paper. The weight of the cover is thick. It’s flexible and sturdy and will hold up well to wear and tear.

ECO-FRIENDLY AND SUSTAINABLY SOURCED: Make an impact by planting a tree to support reforestation. When you purchase, Northbooks plants a tree in the rainforest through our partnership with Eden Projects. All our paper is sustainably sourced and is Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) and Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI) certified.

MADE IN THE USA: Northbooks started out in NYC with the mission of creating the perfect notebook. Like most of our products, our A5 graph journals are designed, sourced, and manufactured right here in the USA, focused on high-quality reliable construction and an eye towards sustainability.

Great quality and made in America

I purchased this to start buying American products even if the price is a little higher. Sure, I can get a cheap notebook but the quality will suck and eventually at the end of the day quality is what keeps you going. I can spend less time worrying about something breaking or worrying that I'm not supporting local jobs. I use this notebook for bullet journal budgeting and its been super nice so far.

Price is Right

Can’t beat the price and quality. Good paper weight. I use a felt tip pen, and no bleed through.

Hi Michael!
Here at Northbooks, we work hard to ensure each notebook we produce is up to standards, from cover to cover, down to the last page. We really appreciate you sharing your experience with using felt tip pens with the rest of the community - this is great input for curious members.
Thank you for giving us a shot, and welcome to the Northbooks family!

At a great price, TRY IT!

I love my Northbook!I have the gray cover with grids.It is simple and beautiful. The paper is great quality, a decent weight, and a neutral color that is easy on the eyes. My water markers, pens, and highlighters don’t bleed through to the other side, and hardly any noticeable ghosting from my highlighter... to the point I want to say there isn’t any at all. The entire production from design to construction is in the US, and yet competitively priced with other well-known brands. An added bonus is the recycled cover, so ethically there is a lot to like about this company. The cover hasn’t been getting too beat up, which I was worried about, and it has held up well. At the very back of the journal are some perforated pages, in case you find yourself without other scratch paper, but don’t want to mar your pages in your new favorite book.If you found my review helpful, please click the helpful review button :)

You have arrived at the perfect notebook. Get one.

BEST. If there were a way to justify collecting notebooks as a higher calling, I would say I've been called. I've tried them all. I love the half-letter size, but the paper has always been too thin or the grid too dark or the pages too few or too many, or the binding too rigid or too flimsy, and my eye has wandered.I saw some great reviews of Northbook, which is made in the US, and thought sure I have 100 other slightly less than perfect notebooks, maybe I'll never find THE ONE, but I can't give up hope, right? So this review is for notebook nerds, with answers to the questions I myself would ask before buying a notebook.For those of us who love a grid to do bullet journaling, this is a great gridded notebook, on paper that's easily 1/3 weightier than Moleskine - a really nice smooth substantial cream color with grey 5mm grid from edge to edge. I've written with mechanical pencil, .38mm gel pens, .5mm gel and ball-points, and .7mm gel, and even my fountain pen with fine tip and dark brown ink, and this is the first notebook I've ever had that I can actually use the back side of the paper - only the heavy black ghosts through a bit, and it's not noticeable at all when the page is filled on both sides.The binding is sewn into 8 signatures and stands about 1/2 inch high. I can't speak for the cover durability because keep mine in a leather refillable cover meant for A5 journals, and even though it's thinner than most journal refills it will fit great if your cover is flexible (I have to say I have yet to fill a journal with more than about 100 sheets in it). Have switched between grid and dot grid now, and both are equally great. I didn't get paid for this review or anything, I'm just a notebook fan speaking to other notebook fans. You have arrived. ;)
