Hello everyone and welcome back to my channel today's video will be a review on the LeStallion Notebook.
These notebooks were kindly sent to me by the company however the reviews are totally based on my opinion so if you want to learn more about this notebook make sure to stick till the end.
I will be breaking this video into five parts.
- First impressions
- pen tests
- pros and cons
- and lastly my opinion
So let's get started!
As we can see this notebook come in a very beautiful little box with the logo of LeStallion on it. It is meant to prevent the notebook from getting damaged as these notebooks are soft cover notebook. Also these boxes can definitely be utilized in some good ways.
Moving onto the notebook as we can see they have soft textured cover made up of faux leather. The A5 notebook of 20.2 centimeter length and 14.8 centimeter width.
Talking about the color they are available in four different color
- Desert brown
- Cocoa brown
- Ashgray Black
- and khaki gray.
All of this color are 19.95 US dollar.
This notebook have a single ribbon bookmark with metallic charm at the back of the notebook you can find a pocket which you can use to store paper notes or stickers. These notebooks also have brown page edges with round corners. The first page of the notebook has a place where you can write your name and the other two pieces are pre-made table of contents.
Moving onto the quality of pages
These are 120 gsm thick paper of ivory colour with light dots.
Talking about dots let's count the number of dots which will be helpful for us in making spreads.
As you can see there are 25 horizontal dots and 35 vertical dots. About the number of pages, it has a massive 216 pages with numbers at the bottom corner.
Now let's have a final rundown of all of its features.
Now moving onto the weighted part that is the pen test the first pen is a ball pen from Riton. Second is a gel print from Paras. Next is the Staedtler permanent marker and finally a sharpie marker. I am also using some watercolor from Faber Castel.
The first one is with more water and less paint while the second one is with more paint and less water. Let's see how well these pens and paint did on the paper.
As you can see there is no ghosting for the ball point gel pen and the Staedtler marker.
However the sharpie marker did break through. About the pen, there is no bleeding or ghosting at all. This is how the page looks after the pens have dried away.
Now let's have a quick chat about its pros and cons starting with the advantages.
As they are of 120 gsm thick paper, this notebook do not bleed ghost or smudge which is a great thing!
The next thing is the number of pages it has massive 216 pieces which is enough for six months.
The next thing is its price. It is only $19.95 which is less than most of the journals out there.
If i had to talk about some disadvantages, it is its color options. There are only four color available.
So for me this is a very good choice because of the price and the quality you get 216 high quality pages for $19 and these pages are even thick enough for watercolor, which was the best part for me.
The only thing i would have wanted is the variation in the color of the cover. Other than that, this notebook seems to be quite good!
You can also choose whether you want your notebook to be dotted or lined in the website. If you want to buy any of this journal, i will link the website in the description.
