For all of us who love the Word. Notebooks designs and quality but wanted something beyond the bullet system and ruled pages, the wait is over.
Word. Notebooks released what I hope is just their first new page-style notebook, conveniently named Dot Grid. The result is a great addition to their line and gives us an alternative to the standard ruled pages in all their other editions. Selling notebooks over the last year through Notegeist, I noticed a graph or dot grid page style clearly is the most popular, although ruled and blank have their fans too. Dot grid gives you the structure to write as though ruled, or sketch as though gridded.
The clever designers at Word. decided to repeat the dot pattern on the cover, along with their iconic Word. circle imprint. The overall effect feels more elegant that other Word. covers, making this new kid in their lineup stand out well.
Spec-wise, the cover stock and inside pages are as the rest of the Word. Notebook line: quality paper that in my experience holds up well and works excellently with all writing tools except fountain pens. For nib-lovers, it’s a mixed story: feels good to write on, but the 60# stock is just absorbent enough to make your strokes feather and bleed just a bit, and enough to make EF and F nib strokes fatten up a bit. You can, of course, mitigate the issue somewhat through nib/ink combinations. I’ve had some success along these lines in Field Notes using a Japanese EF nib and a little thicker, dryer ink.
As carry-around pocket notebooks, you can’t go wrong with Word. and the new Dot Grid makes that even more true. Sturdy, quality, great designs all combine to a great choice for your next pocket notebook.
Yes! Great giveaway. Thanks.
I bought some as soon as I got the email announcement about them! They’re great 🙂
These look really cool. Great giveaway as well.
Thanks for the review, looks like a great set of notebooks!
Well, there went my reason for not trying a Word notebook. I told myself there wasn’t enough variety in pages. Busted.
Thanks for the giveaway!
Don’t enter me, as I have won something before. But I wanted to mention that I found out about Word from you and I do love them. Thanks!

Awesome giveaway.. I am a huge fan of dot grid paper and this would perfectly suit my needs. Thanks!
I like the new format. Still one of the few lined paper fans though.
Interesting idea. Also interesting departure not having their bullet system printed on the paper.
Such a great source of information, samples, and giveaways on paper products. Thanks, Gary.
