Different ways to use a journal

You could use a journal to list your long-term and short-term goals as well as the steps to achieving your goals. By listing steps into manageable parts, it seems much more realistic.

Some people like to keep a record of their daily activities. You could do this and list what you did for the day, how it made you feel and who you interacted with. 

Make it fun by adding pictures of your recipes or stickers of food. Decorate with a pretty washi tape.

Premium Dotted A5 Designer Journal

Beautiful covers, sturdy 160gsm paper. What a joy!

Courtney Cheall
It was lovely but....

The book is lovely but the way the pages are bound, is a bit frustrating as it causes the paper on the left to fold strangely. Not a huge issue but would be awesome if it were spiral bound.

Fabulous quality

Incredibly surprised with the brilliant thick pages. Much better than any other journal I’ve ever purchased. Brilliant cover design that’s well printed. 10/10!!

Fabulous dotted journal

Lovely notebook. Beautiful and well made. It has kicked me off to a good start with bullet journaling.

Christa Clark
Beautiful Journals.

We three sisters each ordered one, and were absolutely thrilled with our journals. Not only beautiful but the quality of the paper was outstanding, it would allow illustrations and ink work. Dealing with the Papery was a sheer pleasure, efficient, communicative and extremely helpful. I can highly recommend the product and team behind it.

Miracle workers!

I needed a last minute secret santa gift and the papery team were more than happy to assist and truly did work a miracle. Thank you for your excellent customer service and a beautiful journal - very happy. 5+ from me!
