To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
This notebook is quite thin and the cover is flimsy. I wanted something for both business planning and sketching jewelry designs, but I don't think I can make this work.
First, I created a series of printables to keep track of projects, inventory, ideas, supplies needed, etc. I also purchased blank paper so that I wouldn't have to punch the holes. I had to remove at least half of the ruled pages to fit my printables and paper for sketching in and it doesn't hold the paper well because it is to thin. Second, I need something with a more sturdy cover for sketching. I don't typically sketch at my desk, I do when watching tv or whenever I get an idea. The flimsy cover makes this pretty much impossible.
I wanted to like this and was so exited to get it. I should have gotten a Filofax Clipbook or another product. I expected more from Filofax.
The blue color is actually a very nice dark, dusty navy. Pages turn smoothly and the paper weight is great for writing. The book is a similar weight in the hand to the moleskine and lechtturm1917, but because of the A5 design, there is more space on each page - basically 1 in wider and 1 inch longer than other notebooks. Because there is no median fold to work around, you get to use every bit of space on the page (even when I use lay flat notebooks, some space is lost along the seam). Each page is easily removed and repositioned. I am not remotely associated with this company; I just really, really like notebooks. :)
This is my second Filofax Notepad. I bought the pocket size for my purse. I liked how it works, folding like a spiral notebook, that I bought the Letter size. I know the disc binder system also fold like a spiral notebook, but the size of the discs seem to make the binder thicker. The Filofax Notepad is rather slim. Nice!
I love making lists. I make lists on my phone all the time. But sometimes, I write on scraps of papers, notebooks, etc. I have notes all over the place. And needed something to centralize it all, and yet be able to move the pages around. This organizer is great! I love the cover and the color. I love that it is slim and compact, and doesn't have big round rings that stick out. It's just perfect for me!
I love this notebook, I have ordered a few different refill papers. I use the lined and dotted papers the most. I can quickly move papers to different sections of this notebook- DIVIDERS INCLUDED!!!! I use this for work so when the projects are done I just move the papers to the binder in case I have to refer back to them later. I love the colors, really durable and it lays flat with everything that I have in it. I also appreciate the the papers are not white- I have stress eyes and it gives me headaches and sore eyes working with white paper. I even have colored glasses and I use an array of colored pens. I can't say enough good things about this notebook. I wish I had found this sooner.
This notebook is the perfect size. And with being able to remove and add pages, it makes it all the much better! It also has section dividers so you can use 1 notebook for multiple purposes. I think I have found my forever notebook. The price is a little steep and the only change I would like to see is the dividers to be made of a durable plastic.
LOVE these notebooks so much so that I bought one for every member of my team! The only downside is trying to find (and buy) the paper refills as they are either not available, on back order... or very confusing which refill to buy based on the size of your notebook as there is no indication on the notebook what size it is [A5? Executive? Letter? No clue].
