So, today we have another stationery product from Kikkerland Design! Along with all the other goodies (which I still have yet to review many of them) that I received from Laura Kellner, the awesome marketing rep. at Kikkerland.
The Bamboo line of notebooks from Kikkerland feature 96 ruled, blank, or graph pages (8 of which are perforated) of 80 gsm Bamboo paper. These small 3.5″ x 5″ notebooks also feature bright, textured, waterproof covers in green, yellow, red, and black (stoplight colors, except for the black). Also, these notebooks feature a square binding which allows the notebook to open and lie relatively flat (a quality not often seen in such a small notebook). The ruling is very fine (approximately .25″), allowing you to make the most of each and every single page in this small notebook.
The paper held up decently well against most types of pens, although I didn’t have my Noodler’s ink to test on it at the time of review. The Pilot Precise V5 Rollerball bled through a little, but that may have been because I held the pen still too long (a bad habit I have with rollerballs). While bleed-through was minimal, show-through is very evident, although, that’s something that I can overlook so long as it’s not horribly distracting.
One of the main things I like about these notebooks is the branding… While the company’s logo is embossed on the back, it is also printed in very small type at the bottom of each page (in a way that I don’t really find all that obtrusive, although YMMV…).
So, here’s the good news! We’re having another giveaway! I told you guys that I would make it up to you for not being as active during NaNoWriMo, and I’m true to my word… While the Green Ruled Notebook, Red Blank Notebook, and the Black in both have been snatched up, I still have the Yellow Ruled and Blank, Red Ruled, and Green Blank to giveaway (for a grand total of 4, lol). So here’s the deal. Comment on this post (per the following rules) and when I pick the winners, the notebooks will be chosen/passed out on a first e-mail, first serve basis. So, the first person will have 4 notebooks to choose from, the second will have 3, and so on, so forth, with each winner receiving one notebook. Now, for the legal rules and other jargon…
