Very clean beautiful minimalism design. High quality. I love it as a creative and sustainable alternative to traditional paper. I used pencils on the stone paper it felt great.

I loved the idea of stone based paper. I like to journal, both personal and bullet variety, and have felt uncomfortable about how much paper I go through on a regular basis. This seemed like the perfect solution. The notebooks are well made, have a good feel, and look great. It is true that the ink doesn't leak through from one side of the page to another, but ink reacts very differently on the stone paper than it does on pulp based pages. Most of my pens bled out and blurred a little, a problem when you are trying to do fine lines and charts like in a bullet journal. The best pen for this paper seemed to be a ballpoint, but I hate using those. I finished the notebook I bought and haven't purchased another. I do think the paper might be great for pencil and sketching, so I've considered getting another for art, but I wouldn't use one for a bullet journal again.

Feedback

I don't know if anything can be done about how the paper interacts with fountain and ink pens, but if it could be more crisp I would buy these all the time.

Really beautiful & minimal notebook, and I'm excited by the stone vs. tree based paper. A creative solution!

Feedback

The paper itself doesn't work well with felt tip pens (my preferred writing tool), which was a deal breaker for me. I also felt my notes faded more quickly than other notebooks and there was a bit of ink transfer between pages β€” but, this might just be a felt tip issue. πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ
