      Absolutely, Karl! Many of my notebooks have been designed with the bullet journaler in mind. There are a variety of colours and paper patterns available to suit everyone.

    Fran, are your covers wide enough to use 2 hardcover journals and a couple of inserts? I am looking to be able to have a hard cover collections journal, a bujo hardcover, plus tns for my business.

    Hi … I have been looking for a journal that opens flat but has a mixture of grid plain dot and watercolour in it … like every page different to last … is that possible? X

    Hello. I am getting 2 leuchtturm 1917 notebooks. Medium sized.
    I think the refillable journal size I need is a5. But I’m not sure. I also want to make sure it is wide enough for both notebooks. Any suggestions? Thank you.

    • Fran McKay says:

      Hi there! Yes, the A5 is the best size for the regular LT1917. You would likely be happiest with either the wide or the chunky. The 2 books *can* fit in the original spine but it’s snug and doesn’t leave any room for other inserts or accessories you might want later on.
