I Like it
from Philadelphia, Pa
I've been trying out new styles and techniques and decided to try using a black sketch book to try applying these techniques and trying out colors on a different canvas. I was really excited and was not disappointed. It's a really sturdy book, has an excellent feel and quality. One note, is the pages have a bit of a texture (kinda like cardboard, but thicker/stronger - which doesn't bother me, but is worth noting I suppose. Once I've filled it up. I'll be buying another.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Love this sketchbook!!!
from Wisconsin (WI)
Used a faux washing tape technique for the front and back covers. This journal is a perfect size, covers are thick and sturdy and the black pages are nice and thick! Love these! Purchased 6 to be used with friends in California!!

I love this sketch book. It's versatile and the paper is thick with a good tooth.
Purchased 2nd one
Very thick paper with a good tooth. I love this.
Nice scrapbook, however tape doesn't adhere well to page.

This product was purchased as a replacement for a previous black paper scrapbook that was discontinued. It was smaller in size than what we were hoping for, but there aren't very many options available for scrapbooks with black pages. Our company uses these books to place photos from our client's events in and present them to our clients at the end of the event. The ribbed finish on the pages made it difficult to keep the photos attached using only two sided tape, and they would not stay fixed on the page for an extended period of time. Glue was not used, although that may be an option for someone that doesn't mind using glue instead of tape. We have decided that smooth pages would be a better option for us and therefore would not be using this item in the future. However, the book is very nice quality, pages are thick and the ribbed pages do look nice. I would just not recommend using tape to affix photos into this book.

It's been difficult for me to find notebooks that have BLACK sketch paper WITH TEETH (for pastels). If the paper doesn't have the teeth, the pastels won't stay on the paper. Never mind that even BLACK paper without teeth was difficult to find. These sketchbooks are heaven-sent. EXACTLY what I needed for my work. THANK YOU SO MUCH for having a supply of them!
