I am absolutely in love with this notebook - not only because it's completely vegan and environmentally friendly but the pages feel amazing to write on and the overall quality of the notebook is fantastic. I'm so glad I ordered three on my first order! Definitely my go to notebook! I do manage to get slight bleeding with my microns but that's most likely me pressing too hard or something to that extent.
I've only been using it for a few days, but I'm very impressed so far with this notebook. The paper is smooth and creamy (is that a thing with paper? I feel like it is) and I've had no issues writing with my fountain pens. There is a bit of show through, but not enough to bother me (and no worse than other notebooks). I don't think this will be my last Dingbats notebook.
Great service, very adequate and fast. Awesome sketchbooks aslo!
The size is slightly wider than a typical A5, but it makes it actually feel smaller in hand. The paper is silky smooth and uncoated, yet works really well with my fountain pens. There is no feathering, bleed, or ghosting. However, you don't get any shading or sheen as on more fountain pen specific paper, but it dries very fast so it would be great for lefties. The main reason I wanted to try this notebook was that the company touts it as a "green" notebook.
I am so impressed with Dingbats*! When I was accidentally sent the wrong notebook they sent me the correct one and let me keep the old one when I was fully prepared to send it back. The quality of the notebook is amazing and I can't wait to fill these books.
