Unique and just perfect

I made my first purchase and can’t be more satisfied with the ordering process and the fantastic products I received. Wish I had a larger allowance so I’m working on my wife increasing my weekly allowance.

Th best handy notebooks

I use these notebooks to track what's going on in my bee hives. Super handy. When I run out of room, I'll definitely get more.

Bee-utiful Softcover Notebook

I recently joined a class that requires keeping a journal of my dreams. Since all of my waking dreams are about bees and building a business teaching others how to raise them, I couldn't think of a better notebook to record all of my sleep dreams in. The details are gorgeous. A+ print work.

The Best Notebook I Have Ever Used

These notebooks are made with high-quality paper and the lines are low-contrast, which makes them easier to use when my eyes are tired. I am a fan of colored gel pens and the ink does not show through the page. The pages lie flat when you open the notebook--almost as flat as a spiral-bound, but without, you know, the spiral. I want every single one of these notebooks.

bee journal is the bees knees!

I like having unique supplies and tools for writing. This is just right for my hive journal this fall and next year! I am especially appreciative of the string binding that ensures that this book will not fall apart with heavy use. Well done!
