Stalogy Editor’s Series 365Days Notebook Review

I have been using the Stalogy Editor’s Series 365Days Notebook for almost 2 months now. So I figured I’ve used it enough to really share my thoughts on this notebook.

Features of the notebook

The Stalogy features a very minimalist design. It has a plain softcover with some branding in gold. (All of the stickers on the cover photographed were placed by me.) I purchased the notebook in their 2021 Limited Edition green color, but their standard colors are black, light blue, yellow, and red. The notebook I’m using is A5 in size but also comes in A6, B6, and B5.

The 365Days notebook comes with 368 pages (perfect for a page per day). The paper is lightweight. So the notebook isn’t heavy at all. But if that’s too many pages, there’s also a 1/2 year version with 192 pages.

The pages themselves are a light gray, 4 mm grid. It also has a place where you can date your page in the top right corner, and along the vertical axis, it does have numbers that correlate to the hours of the day. With the grid and wording in light gray, it’s quite easy to ignore the additional features if you don’t wish to use them.

Performance

I’m strictly using my Stalogy for writing. (It’s my “First Chapters Transcription Project” notebook.) So I don’t know how it will fare with art mediums. However, regardless of what you’re using, there will be ghosting, which is when you can see shadows of what’s on the other side of the page. This is expected from any type of lightweight paper.

Fountain pens and gel pens work well on the Stalogy paper, which are my go-to pens of choice. However, I do prefer using finer fountain pen nibs on the Stalogy paper. (There’s less ghosting.) Also, the shading and sheening of specialty fountain pen inks aren’t prominent on the Stalogy paper. But I have found that fountain pen inks dry relatively quickly. So for long writing sessions, it works great!

TD;LR

I love my Stalogy! I’d definitely recommend it for anyone that wants a lightweight notebook with a lot of pages and writes small. It even works well with fountain pens. It just won’t show all of the properties of specialty fountain pen inks.

If you’d like to check out the Stalogy for yourself, you can find it on Amazon (affiliate link). But if you’d like to support small stationery stores, I’d highly recommend checking out Yoseka Stationery or JetPens.

What is your go-to notebook? Is there something I should check out? Let me know in the comments. 🙂
