I'm looking for an inexpensive hard cover journal that is friendly for a moonman m2 ef nib. Is prefer it to be perforated at the inside edges but that's not a requirement. However, lines are needed, preferably collage ruled.
Just looking for a suitable fountain pen-friendly journal to use once I finish my current one.
forewarning: i'm completely new to bookbinding and am not 100% sure this is the right spot to ask, so please forgive me if it's not haha
i have this a6 journal that i really love (it can lie flat!) and am using as my 2021 bullet journal. the only issue i have with it is that it's softcover and i prefer a firmer/more hardcover style.
i was thinking of making just the front and back cover hardcover (is that even the right word) while leaving the spine free so it can continue to lie flat.
how would i go about doing this? would i just glue a hard piece of board to the front and back and cross my fingers? or is there a better approach to make sure it can hold up for a year with moderate daily use?
thanks so much for y'all's advice, you're the best :)
I have been using this pentalic sketchbook https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0025TV24C/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o02_s01?ie=UTF8&th=1 as a journal for the last two years. It's amazing. The pages are great to write on, it's big (8.5x11) and comes with 220 pages. My only gripe is that since it's a sketchbook there are no lines.
Does anybody know of any brands that meet similar standards? 8.5x11, 200+ pages, hardcover, lined?
I've been searching for a while. Thanks for any help!
I'm looking for a spiral-bound hard cover dotted notebook/bullet journal, cause I realize I don't use notebooks that aren't spiral bound as much as I'd like. Anybody have any recommendations?
Does anyone know what material the cover is made of? Since my covers are just a solid color, I want to draw on it. I tried using Sharpies(normal and oil-based ones) but they smear(I tried it on the essentials hardcover journal. My next journal is going to be the Dot Journal by Artist's Loft. I am wondering what kind of marker/pen I can use to draw on the color?
So I was wondering if someone out there could help me out. I’m so picky with my journals. And I’m trying to get my life and thoughts organized. Learning more about my ADHD, I know that having a journal I enjoy writing in is key. I have had this one specific journal for YEARS and it is the only one I have consistently used. I got it on clearance at Staples and there is no brand 😩. I have a bunch of other journals that don’t do it for me (I feel like a psycho). I’m looking for either this specific notebook again (I can add pics) OR if anyone has recommendations for a hardcover grid/graph paper. THANK YOU!!
Does anyone know where I can find some interesting hardcover journals/notebooks? The only ones I’m finding are either single color or have some kind of floral design. Any suggestions containing more variety would be great!
I am in the process of putting together some jarrariums and nano aquariums and am especially interested in dwarf sag, any kind of buce or anubius, dwarf water lilies and bacopa monnieri, but am willing to consider other plants too. Also interested in floaters like water lettuce, fairy moss and water hyacinth (I have tons of duckweed, but if you need to unload I will happily take that too; I have ducks that love it!). I'm also super interested in freshwater invertebrates and crustraceans--shrimp, copepods, ostracods, daphnia, rotifers, clams, snails; hitchhikers welcome or intentional inclusions. (and, while we're at it, I'm open to cool pieces of driftwood too!)
To trade I have:
SEEDS: Lots and lots of flower seeds hardy to zone 5, both perennials and annuals. Wildflowers and domesticated. Lots of great things for pollinators. See my post here: https://www.reddit.com/r/TakeaPlantLeaveaPlant/comments/g0p5n5/anybody_wanna_trade_for_flower_seeds_i_have_a/
CUTTINGS: I have cuttings of lilac and forsythia and orange daylily bulbs (for outdoor plants) and for indoor plants I have cuttings of various succulents, callisia repens, teddy bear vine, baby bunny bellies, peace lily, Swedish ivy, string of bananas, ruby necklace, jade, variegated schefflera, Cuban oregano, and arrowhead plant.
HANDMADE: I make hardcover, cloth-bound journals that are suitable for fountain pen writing. I would be happy to make one for a decent trade! You can see some examples of journals I made for myself here: https://imgur.com/gallery/AQ1IIRb
I am in the unenviable position of hating the A5 journal size that seems to be ubiquitous these days. Does anyone have a favorite B5 or A4 hardcover journal that is fountain pen-friendly? (Preferably not Leuchtturm1917 as their paper is quite thin and tends to ghost.) There are some softcover B5 and A4 options at Goulet Pens, but I write in bed and really need a sturdy cover to serve as a writing surface. Please advise! Thank you!
I have no idea where to even go to post this. I am struggling to find the marble hard-cover three subject notebooks. Yes they still exist, but everything these days doesn't seem to use the hard (thick) cardboard cover, and everything is flimsy instead of rigid. Is there a place I can go to discuss journals (hard cover, leather, etc.), weights of paper in the book, and pens and so forth? I'm an admitted pen snob.
