Notebooks

Our journals come standard with coated acid-free and FSC-certified 160 gsm white or 150 gsm black paper.

While the paper is not specifically designed for watercolour, our notebooks are designed for many different mediums. Many of our customers have found our paper suitable for light watercolour use without much bleedthrough or ghosting.

Non-alcoholic based inks work best in our notebooks. Popular mediums include:

- Ballpoint and gel pens

- Fountain pens

- Tombow markers and brush pens

- Highlighters

- Markers

Alcoholic-based inks such as Copic or Sharpies will bleedthrough as these type of inks require a specific coated paper.

All of our A5 notebooks have 27 x 38 dot grid.

Yes, our notebooks are completely made out of 100% vegan materials including the faux-leather PU covers.

The covers are a smooth textured faux leather made out of polyurethane. These covers are very resistant to wear and tear and do not become dirty easily. 

Our ‘Sky Grey’ notebooks use a ‘fabric’ look-a-like. So from afar, it looks as though it is a fabric cover, but in reality it's PU leather. 

Our ‘Dark Mode’ notebooks are made out of a Saffiano Textured PU leather which is both smooth yet textured at the same time.

We know that a lot of bullet journalists love using different pens and mediums and so we dedicated a specific page at the end of the notebook for you to try out different pens and test if they cause any bleeding or ghosting.

We know notebooks can be so personal and so we are working hard behind the scenes to deliver new colours as soon as we can. At this stage though, we only have a grey and black cover. If you have any future colour suggestions, please let us know!

Desk Mats

Our desk mats measure 80 cm by 40 cm.

Our desk mats are made out of a synthetic PU leather. PU leather feels and looks like real leather, it’s soft and smooth but is more resistant and does not patina over time.

Wipe down any spills or stains with a clean damp cloth. For tougher stains, use a mild hand wash or detergent and a non-abrasive cloth. Leave to air dry.

Generally, most mats will flatten out after 24-48 hours after unboxing. However, if you find your mat still creased, try rolling the mat the opposite way the mat was delivered to help flatten it out. If you still have issues, please contact us at info@escgoods.com.au.

We have some other desk mat sizes in the pipeline for the future. Please subscribe to our newsletter to be the first to know when we launch.
