I need to find a specific type of notebook. I've been looking forever with no luck and I'm hoping someone here can help.
I have been looking for a notebook, specifically a JournalBook (brand name). JournalBook makes notebooks as promo and marketing items for companies and they can only be ordered in bulk by businesses (I've contacted JournalBooks directly and asked). I have three of these notebooks that I've received from various jobs and I LOVE them. I make a ton of notes for work and I like to use these specific notebooks because they're sturdy and have high-quality, absorbable paper which means they last and can stand up to all of my flipping through them to find things, as well as hold up to being carried around in my backpack or purse.
Unfortunately I can't find these notebooks or a comparable notebook ANYWHERE. Believe me, I've looked. I've checked stationary shops, bookstores, office supply stores, any place that could conceivably sell journals and I can't find anything that meets all my criteria and is as good as JournalBooks. Does anyone have any idea where I could buy these?
- must be spiral bound
- hard cover
- thick, high quality paper
- elastic strap to keep it shut
- elastic pen holder (this is a little more optional)
- around 7x10 in size
I don't want a leather cover, a wraparound cover or anything fancy. Some places sell single journalbooks but they're leather, non spiral bound and basically everything I don't want. Some places sell notebooks that are similar to journalbooks in that they're spiral bound with a hard cover but I don't like the paper. I've come to the conclusion that the JournalBooks brand is the only company that sells what I'm looking for.
is a picture of exactly what I want. Ideally, it would be without a logo, but at this point I realize that may be impossible so I'd be fine with anything. This
is what the JB logo (which is imprinted on the back of every notebooks) looks like.
Every website I see only sells them in bulk and while I would be fine buying a lot at once, I don't really need 100+ of them.
Mefi is my last hope on this so I'm hoping someone will be able to help me find them.
