Review: NEW Denik Layflat Notebook

Denik Notebooks heard the comments about their notebooks from reviewers across the internet and have retooled them and introduced the new Denik Layflat Notebook. They feature the same soft touch softcovers, same interior paper but Denik improved the binding of their books to get a better binding. The books open easier, exposing more of the page and lay flatter more easily.

I could see the stitched binding when I opened the new Layflat Meadowlark notebook ($11.95) so I knew I was opening all the way to the spine. It means I get more real estate per page while also not having to force the page open.

Here’s a close-up of the original Denik notebook spine above. Its drenched in glue making it difficult to open completely.

This photo above is the new, improved Denik Layflat spine. See the individual signatures of paper and how the cover is not attached to the glue? That makes it easier for the book to lay flat. Congrats to Denik for listening to customer feedback.

Next request? Dot grid! And fountain pen-friendly paper! Because I love the cover graphics and what the company stands for so I love supporting them.

  1. This makes me so happy! I got a Denik sketchbook after one of your reviews and love the paper in it but have, at times, been infuriated by the binding. I don’t mind so much losing the real estate of the page, but the amount of work I have to put into keeping it open properly.
