This is the best hardcover notebook I've ever used. The quality of paper used for pages is smooth and not do not bleed through. I get double the usage for this notebook because I can write on both sides of the page. That translates into more notebook for my money. As an Art Director, I use many different types of writing utensils, pens, pencils, and markers. I’m not going to lie, my sketches and notes look very professional on the pages.
I use my notebook every day, the front pocket folder and stickers come in very handy for keeping my projects organized and labeled. Hamelin offers plenty of color choices to suit my moods. Everything considered, I am really impressed with the quality of the notebook and I find also exciting is the ability to use the SCRIBZEE app to scan and save my notes in the cloud. I make it a point to carry my notebook every day.
