Review by Laura Cameron
Personally, I was most excited by the Dot Grid Steno ($14) since I have a deep and abiding love of dot grid! The Dot Grid Steno is a 5.5″ x 8.5″ steno pad with 120 pages of 70# paper with a light gray dot grid. The heavy cardstock covers are available in both Pistachio and Black.
This pad is totally my jam. The paper is great! I tested a variety of fountain pens, fine liners, gel pens, pencils, Sharpies and fountain pen ink swabs. Of everything I tested, only the Sharpie bled through and there was barely any ghosting of any of the others. I also love A5-ish size notebooks and that beautiful dot grid! Based on how I use my notebooks, I’m sure this one will get lots of use (which means you’ll be seeing it in reviews to come…)
But now we’ve got some fun notebooks to share with you! Up for giveaway to one lucky winner are:
- ONE Write Reporters Notebook in Pistachio Green ($11.99 value)
- ONE Write Landscape Ruled Notebook ($20 value)
