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!

My wife loves it!

Looking for some good general notebooks and this one caught my eye for my wife. She does a lot of herbology and loves bees, this one was perfect. paper is good for fountain pens, well made, and the graphics on all of them are fantastic.

Great Little Notebook

I enjoy this notebook not only for its colorful graphics, but also for its sturdy construction and convenient size. I can easily slip the notebook In a bag or tote to carry on my adventures.

Fun covers, easy to write in

This is my second notebook from this company. I like it very much for its size and number of pages—not too big and not too small. The lay-flat capability is nice as I usually am writing a couple pages at a time and on a small lap desk. I have purchased two more notebooks so I don’t run out soon. After almost daily writing, these notebooks last me a little over a month.
