Store Update! Sticker Release Paper!

A while ago, we released A5 sticker release paper on our Etsy store. We’re now excited to announce that it is now available in A4 size!

Sticker release paper is a smooth coated paper that allows for the temporary placement of stickers, much like the sticker books of your childhood. So yes, the paper is reusable as much as you want.

We stock double sided paper, which is perfect for a variety of uses which I’ll go into more detail below.

Our A5 sticker release paper can be used in our clear 6 ring binder (pictured above), a 2 ring file, slide it into a folder, slot it into an A5 pocket folder or with some cutting, our sticker folder (currently out of stock, will be back soon!)

You can also create your own mini booklet, or go up a size to A4:

The A4 sticker release paper is very versatile.

Besides some of the same suggestions as the A5 paper such as inserting it into a folder, or using a 2 hole folder, you can also create your own travelers notebook insert! (or we can do it for you, subject to availability, please request a custom item if you do not see it on our store)

We’ve also found that it fits perfectly in our A4 slim compact foldable folder. The folder has 5 pockets and the pages are easily slid in or out for use and the best part is that it is the same size as a Travelers notebook.

Once again, our sticker release paper comes in A5 or A4 size, it is double sided and comes in a set of 10 sheets (20 usable pages!)

Purchase here: Sticker Release Paper , A4 slim folder, A5 6 ring clear binder

Also, our printer friendly A4 Washi sticker paper is back in stock!

A5 Notebook Recommendations For Bullet Journalling

It’s that time of year! Diary/Journal buying, my favourite time of the year to be honest.
If you are not sure what a Bullet Journal is, please see this page.

1. Leuchtturm 1917 Bullet Journal

I’ve been using the Leuchtturm official bullet journal notebook as my bullet journal this year. You don’t really have to buy the official version, any of the other Leuchtturm dot grid notebooks would work, but if you’re a beginner, the official version makes navigating the system easy.

I like the Leuchtturm because of its hardcover, it also has a pocket in the back, and an elastic to hold the notebook closed when it’s in your bag. You can also pair it with a matching pen loop, which I’m a big fan of.

2. Midori MD Paper 

I started using a Bullet Journal in 2017 and that year I used a Midori A5 Blank page notebook. At the time, Midori did not do a dot grid notebook but they have recently released a limited edition range that includes dotgrid. If you can still find it, I would recommend dotgrid for Bujo.

MD paper is legendary, it’s really nice to write on and supports a wide range of writing media. My only complaint is that you will have to buy a cover because they are cream coloured soft covered notebooks. The good news is that Midori do sell a range of covers, or any standard A5 cover (Hobonichi cousin if you want extra pockets) will fit as well.

3. Filofax Clipbook

The Clipbook is one of my newer notebooks. I’m not using it for Bujo but I think it would be perfect for someone who prefers to add/remove pages.

You can also add in dividers/pockets and loose dot grid pages are easily available so that makes this system pretty flexible. It also comes in a variety of colours/materials.

However, my favourite thing about the clipbook is that opens flat comfortably, making it easy to write on all pages.

4. Muji Easy-Open Notebook with Recycled Paper 

Muji carries good quality notebooks for budget conscious bullet journal users. The paper may be recycled, but it’s very smooth and great for writing.

This is just one in a range of A5 dot grid notebooks so there are many choices, but I recommend this one because of the PP cover.

5. Transparent Clear Vinyl 6 Ring Binder 

The 6 ring format of this binder is similar to the Filofax Clipbook.

Plastic means your notes will be protected and transparent means you can customise it. Perfect for those who like to stamp their own personality on their notebooks.

Honorable Mention

Travelers Notebook

The TN, which is more of a slim A5 size is also one of the more popular options for Bullet Journalling. You can assign different notebooks to different things, making it quite a flexible system.

MACO - The Pen sized masking tape holder

Japanese stationery brand Kanmeido has launched a brand new product: A pen sized masking tape holder!

They come in 4 different colors : Yellow, Pink , White and Navy.

Each set comes with the following : A holder, 5 refill cases and 1 winder.

How it works.

Using the winder, you are able to wind up to 1m of tape you want to use onto the refill.

Once the refill is ready, you can slot it into the holder.

Up to 4 different masking tapes can be added at each time.

There are refills available for sale separately as well!

I think this is a great system and extremely handy to bring masking tape on the go. A wonderful addition to my traveling stationery kit.

What do you think?
