Staff pick! Yulan says: "I am an experimenter when it comes to notebooks and pens. For me, each different notebook has a different purpose so I like to try out various styles. But for school, this is top on my list. I’ve already been through more than 10 of these notebooks and I keep coming back to it. This is a softcover composition notebook that fits in almost all school bags. It features 6.5mm spaced lines on acid-free, silky-smooth pages that allow any type of pencil or pen to run wild on it, including fountain pens. I also enjoy the light weight of the notebook. With only 32 sheets of paper, I can carry many of them in my backpack at the same time and don't feel like I have a boulder on my shoulders. Furthermore, the fewer pages ensure that I will fill up most, if not all, of the notebook in one semester. I don't have to think about what I will do with the rest of the blank pages in my notebook anymore!"
Apica is a Japanese brand known for their fountain-pen friendly, ultra high-quality paper.

International orders may be subject to import fees, duties, or tariffs that are determined by the country of delivery. The Paper Mouse is not responsible for these charges, nor are we able to calculate them prior to shipment.

If a shipment is refused due to unwanted fees, duties, or tariffs imposed by Customs in the country of delivery, you will be charged for both original and return shipping, as well as all associated fees.
Please understand that delays due to Customs processing are out of our control.
In the event that an item you purchased becomes backordered, we will attempt to contact you to see if you wish to exchange with a different item or receive a refund.
