Built in response to a special request from a prominent aerospace engineer, these notebooks offer traditional green engineering grid paper in a lay-flat bound hardcover format. 

The covers of these understated notebooks present an icon representative of a specific branch of engineering in silver foil. Inside the front and back covers, you'll find imagery from the specific discipline. 

The textured paper on the covers of these notebooks has the feel of an old textbook. With advanced lay-flat pages, they want to fall open, like a well-loved library book. Go ahead and see for yourself – these are the notebooks your most brilliant ideas have been waiting for.

The Engineer series is built with high-quality 100% recycled paper and printed with soy inks, leaving a light footprint. Be inspired to ask the right questions, connect the dots (even when they’re really far apart), and keep pushing humanity forward, so that tomorrow is always brighter than today.

Right of Passage

I've been working in various roles as an ME for the past 16 years. I finally landed a leading role and thought I should look the part. The pad is well constructed and uses the same Engineering Graphics paper we all know and love (and find utility in). It's bound and has a page marker. Why 4 stars? Well, I traveled once and the binding started to wear really quickly. Following that, the price for what I believe to be not many pages (considering) is steep, especially factoring in shipping rates. Would I buy it as a gift for another Engineer? Maybe. Would I get another one if my workplace was paying for it? Yes. Will I buy another one for myself once I run out of pages to fill? Not likely, unless the price is reduced or the page count is considerably increased.
