NEWS – When I was in college – and even now, if I’m honest – I loved using graph paper for taking notes.  I loved the close spacing so I could pack a lot of info on a single sheet of paper.  And I was a chemistry major who took a lot of math classes, so I’m not ashamed to say I just love the look of graph paper.  These BLU Notebooks take grid paper to a new level by giving it the distinctive blue color of blueprints – but without the smell of ammonia that actual blueprints have.

BLU Notebooks are filled with acid-free, FSC- and SFI-certified paper.  The paper has a smooth finish that still has a velvety feel of actual blueprint paper.  The grid is a 10:1” grid within a finer 2:1″ grid.  Although I’m not fluent in paper-speak, the paper also has 160m text / 4 points of thickness.  The pages aren’t quite traditional notebook size at 8.25” X 11”.  The notebook has cardboard covers and a spiral binding, so it can lay flat.

BLU says you should use an opaque white or bright coloured gel or paint pens for a true blueprint appearance,  but standard ballpoint pens and other writing instruments will work.  Each notebook comes with a Sakura White Gelly Roll 10 Bold Gel Pen to get you started.

Each BLU Notebook is $16.39 USD.  Shipping from Canada is $4.50 USD.  Order your notebook from the BLU Notebooks website.
