I'm thinking of making some Tomoe River pads and/or notebooks? What would you like to see here in the UK and in Europe. Open to suggestion. A4? A5? Pads? Bound notepad?

 

Let me know your thoughts..

Me too.

I love gridded notepads. The only TR paper I can find with a grid is a Hobonichi planner which I love but an A4 or A5 bound notebook with this paper would be amazing :thumbup :

I have been searching far and wide for affordable Tomoe River paper.

 

I would be very interested in:

 

A5 lined pads (i will hole-punch them for my A5 filofax)

 

A4 plain sheets (I will probably cut them to size to fit a personal filofax)

 

Or alternatively, pre-cut Personal Size sheets, both lined and plain, if that were possible.

 

Having said that, any opportunity to purchase some of this paper, whatever you might be able to produce  will be hugely appreciated and I'm grateful for your efforts.

 

Best Wishes,

David

I like A5 sized notebooks as they are more portable. 

And I'll second/third the grids. I like them better than lined paper.

B5 plain would be great! Also the choice between hard & soft covered notebook.

I believe there has been Japanese market grid paper. Tomoe is great, but the only widely available for export grid paper is the Hobonochi planner. It is an incredible planner for what it is worth too.

I'd really like a pocket notebook, with plenty of leaves, and *perforated* paper so I can tear notes and soforth out cleanly!

Reporter pads like the Moleskine ones – top bound, and glued or stitched. Preferably the large size, with plenty of sheets. Plain is great but a light 5mm grid would be fine too.

A5 and A6 gridded white paper, softbound into journals. Or the dot grids. I love the dot grids.

I know this is an old post, but I've been searching all over for either lined (not larger spacing than 7mm - I write small), or dot grid/grid white tomoe river journals in A6 or pocket sized with LOTS of pages. I'm so tired of only finding A5 everywhere I look, and I can't draw a straight line with a ruler so I need lines or grids...

If you find one, let me know!  I'd particularly like one with a leather exterior, or sized to fit the midori-type leather covers.

I would love to see an A4, 7mm  lined journal with either soft or hard cover, with high page count.
