Dot Grid 3.5 X 5.5 Notebook Recommendations?


Recommended Posts

I recently purchased a "traveler's notebook" (in quotes and not capitalized because it's not Traveler's brand... is there an accepted way to refer to these when they're not made by Midori or Traveler's Company?) that takes 3.5 x 5.5 inch notebooks. I have a Clairefontaine in there (which is spectacular) but I'd REALLY love some dot grid paper.


Does anyone have any recommendations for a fountain pen friendly, dot grid, 3.5 x 5.5 inch notebook with a soft cover? Staples vs stitched binding doesn't matter to me but I don't want glue and I'd like it to be relatively small - the Clairefontaine has 48 pages.


Thanks in advance paper gurus!

I didn't know Goulet made 3.5 x 5.5! Thanks LizEF!


You're welcome. I have the one with the heavier Tomoe River paper and love it. :)

Or I should say: Ink loves it. :)

Several of the Fieldnotes have 70lb paper. You'll have to check to be certain. They are themed notebooks so you may or may not like the covers.


Story Supply also does very nice 70 lb notebooks. They recently had a sale of 40% off with "friends" coupon


Write notebooks also makes very nice FP friendly NBs but the binding is different and may not work in your Traveler type cover.


Bandiapple notebooks have great paper. Goulet use to sell them. They are made in Korea so you may need more internet searching. I know several people make large orders from them but I don't have a link.

TarokoShop on etsy.com has FN, 3.5 x 5.5 as well as Traveller's Regular and Traveller's Passport Size Tomoe River Paper in Dot Notebooks. NMPCC Just did a 4 week test on a new notebook( A5 and A6), Taroko is developing, the paper worked on every ink we threw at it. Jim Gooding put a big blob of blue ink on the paper, rubbed it in. Other than the wetness wrinkling the paper, no show through and no feathering. Usual disclaimers apply, no affiliation, just a very satisfied customer. Search for:

      @Ruaidhri This was an absolutely wonderful bit of writing, and I hope that you're able to maintain the style once all of the medications are out of your system.  Take care and recover quickly!

      These comments make me sad as I sympathise with Ruaidhri, having great difficulties in being taken seriously. Or being taken at all (no off-colors jokes, please!) In spite of overwhelming odds,  Ruaidhri -now I know how to spell it- made a courageous decision and stuck to it. I was diagnosed with a similar growth in a place I will not reveal. Oh, well, if you insist it was Mount Sinai Hospital. But I firmly intend to walk in Ruaidhri's footsteps, if he will let me, on my next visit to Dublin.

      Reminds me of the day my associates and I developed a cure for all mankind's ills and mistakenly wrote it down with invisible ink.

      Was that the end of the Laboratory? Somehow the exactitude created a fully destructive device, as always!
