Quill, Meet Pad. A Journal Notebook Crafted For Your Story


Pad & Quill was born of one concept: We carefully craft each product to meet the demands of today while honoring the traditions of the past; where so many brilliant ideas began with just a pad & a quill. So, it’s about time we made that pad and that quill! Putting pen to paper, and turning ideas into realities is a wonderful experience. We’ve created the perfect journal notebook for capturing those special moments because when the train of thought leaves the station, it needs a place to go!

The Journal Notebook


We went all out on this journal design. It offers an incredible user experience because we designed it to be slightly wider than standard journals to provide more usable space and feel more breathable as you write. It is Smyth-sewn the old fashioned way so that it lays flat when opened and stays together even after heavy use. This is the same binding used in books that are stored in the library of congress. Our Journal Notebook is hard-bound with archival-quality book bindery linen cloth that feels soft to the touch (like a good suit jacket) and will look great on the shelf too.

The real star of the show is the fine-grain acid-free recycled paper that feels great to write or sketch on with all sorts of mediums. At 100 GSM thickness, it is the perfect balance of luxurious feeling paper that is just heavy enough to not bleed through and yet doesn't feel too bulky either. That experience is enhanced by the softly rounded edges of the paper because clean tidy lines make for good thinking space.

The Extra Features


Every journal includes a 2-page blank table of contents and numbered pages through the whole journal so you will never have to hunt for that great idea lost amongst pages again. 2 ribboned bookmarks help you keep your place even when working on multiple projects at once.

Our journals are perfect for creatives and also for aficionados of bullet journaling and Brilliant Journaling. That’s why we are offering two options for the journals, plain and dot graph. Our dot grid notebook paper lets you write in straight lines while also giving you the flexibility to sketch, design, and let those ideas flow. Plain paper is perfect for those who love the freedom to make the journal their own.

Additionally, a heavy elastic band holds the notebook closed and lays flat to the back of the journal instead of flopping around and getting in the way when not in use. An expandable pocket in the back will hold those brilliant back-of-the-napkin ideas. We have tailored every aspect of these journals so they live up to the Pad & Quill standard of versatile excellence. Happy brilliant journaling!
