A notebook that has really cheered up my afternoon! The cover is so soft, pages have a good weight and really nicely bound. The little red dragonflies on the page edge is such a pretty design and with a lovely colour scheme. This is the second item I've had from this company.
The design is gorgeous. The beautiful endpapers really lend a sense of elegance. The cover is soft and flexible and sturdy. The notebook lies flat when opened which is nice, and if you wanted you can also fold it in half for easier note taking. I appreciate the numbered pages and the index in the front. Overall I think the quality is quite nice and it seems to have been designed quite thoughtfully
The ZenArt journal is exactly what I was hoping for in creating zentangle art. I love the fact it has a Z on the cover. The feel of the faux leather is wonderful and enhances the quality IMO. The dragonfly details on the end pages and page edges are a nice touch, too. This feels like a substantial and quality journal.

Frequently Asked Questions
A dotted journal is suitable for bullet journaling – a method of personal organization developed by Ryder Carroll. The method organizes schedules, to-do lists, significant events, milestones and other organizational tasks in a single journal.
However, our dotted journal is designed in an open-minded way, to allow you to choose which system to use (or not). Having four index pages and numbers on each page, continuous lines of dots across the pages, you can express yourself creatively.
Good question! Our Modernista series dotted journals are pure joy for your aesthetical and organizing buds. They are all designed by our co-founder Ardak Kassenova, and are very unique. Each of them has a splash of color inside and outside, and even on the edges. The traditional Japanese design on the edges and end-papers, unique for each journal color-variation, has a positive meaning, and is a metaphor and our good wish to you.
Designed to make organizing on-the-go easier, each dotted journal is meticulously handcrafted using recyclable materials, with perfectly aligned dotted grids (5mm spacing) across both pages, and no lines to ruin your bullets but small dots to help you organize. Our dotted journal also features a 180° lay-flat spine that stays open so you can organize at ease.
This paper is amazing! Our latest journals have thicker paper of 120 gsm – as many of you requested. It has the same satin-smooth surface, it's acid-free, FSC certified, ink-proof and won't create feathering if you use a fountain pen, or similar. Each journal has 160 pages or 80 sheets of dotted ivory paper that won't reflect light in your eyes in the way ordinary white papers might.
Acid-free means that the pH level of the paper is 7.0 (neutral) or higher (alkaline). In general, acid-free papers are expected to last for decades under normal storage conditions. Don't worry; it's still biodegradable.
FSC is an acronym for the Forest Stewardship Council®, which is an independent, non-governmental, not-for-profit organization established to promote the responsible management of the world's forests. The FSC system provides an assurance that products such as wood and paper have been harvested in a socially and environmentally responsible manner.
Our journals are encased in a vivid-colored faux leather-bound cover that is soft and smooth, scratch-resistant, flexible and vegan.
Our journals are perfect for daily journaling, art journaling and daily planning. The 120 gsm acid-free paper is durable enough for ink, markers, glue and sticky tapes, rough erasing, shading or art journaling. Your options are endless. You can consider journaling ideas as therapy .
We only want you to find the best fine art tools that you will enjoy using. If that's not us, don't fret. We offer a 1-year guarantee and 100% money-back for 60 days.

I've been bullet journaling for a few years now and am very picky about which journals to use. The journals need:
- to lay flat
- pages that are not too bright
- to be made of faux leather (because I'm vegan)
I wasn't sure about the B5 size because I was used to the A6, but I will never go back. I love the extra space and how large the pages are. I only wish that there were more pages per journal.
We can't thank you enough for the kind words about Bullet Journal. Your review means a lot to us and lets us know we're on the right track. - Ryan
A huge thank you for taking the time to spend such nice words about our Bullet Journals. It really makes us so happy when people write a product review for us because it lets us know if we're doing great or if we need to improve in areas that we can. We're so glad that these are your new favorite notebooks and you are giving them to others, too.- Ryan
This has far exceeded my expectations. I am passionate about bullet journalling and have used Leuchturm, STM, etc. Whilst they have their place I have never used a B5 before and never used a soft cover and there is poor choice so I was sort of funnelled into this purchase. The soft cover has a peach effect but is not flimsy so don't worried about dog eared pages. I thought the big Z embossing on the front would put me off but it adds to the quality feel. The paper surface is amazing from tombow to basic bic to pencils to your favourite fountain pen. 120gsm so no bleed or ghosting. Erasing doesn't smudge. Dots clear but don't spoil the image by standing out too much. It lies flat so using a ruler or stencils is easy. It has 2 ribbons, rear envelope, index, elasticated close, page numbers. Honestly this is a beautifully made notebook! If I had to moan about anything it's the colour range. Need more colours coz I am gonna be ordering more! Maybe a navy blue with gold edges?
Thank you so much for letting us know what your experience was with our dotted journal. We're happy that you think it's an excellent journal. Your review helps us a lot being a family-run business.

This notebook is just the perfect size for use as my journaling diary! I love the soft back feel and Zen vibe! Very good quality
I love this journal. Ive purchased it 3 times for my bullet journal. I love the size, color and feel of the cover.
I can be very picky about notebooks......these are FABULOUS!!!!!!!
Just a heads-up: the paper is thin and its not a hardcover journal
Excellent quality. I will buy this journal again.
The reason I was first so intrigued was the B5 paper size -7x10" approx. I had had several smaller journals but always got fed up trying to squeeze in a whole monthly tracker because I accidentally made the title too big. I don't have to worry about that here! I pair this with my daily planner and use it for all my trackers! It's so handy for my college life. I also use it for meal planning and any other needs I may have. I use Stabilo boss highlighters, inkjoy gel pens, and some light watercolors without ghosting - but I don't have a heavy hand or use a lot of products in one space so that could account for it as well. For my needs, the paper is perfectly thick. I will be buying again and again!
