Notebooks with Black Paper

I recently received an email from a reader asking where she could buy a notebook with black paper pages to write in with her gel pens.  Since I really don't have a good answer to this myself (I found the black paper notebook in my earlier post on pens for dark paper at my local thrift store), I thought I would put the question out to all of my other readers.  Where can you buy a notebook with black paper pages?  Do you have any specific brands that you would recommend?

  1. You could always order one to be custom made. I know Badger and Chirp on Etsy accepts custom orders and does a nice job :)

  2. Moleskine has a series call Black Page Album. It is not quite a notebook, but might be worth looking into. http://www.moleskineus.com/moleskine-black-page-albums.html

  3. She could also make her own using artagain paper. It can be found easily online or from an art supply store. Even black construction paper would work well. There are some really easy tutorials for making journals on youtube.

  5. In the UK, Hobbycraft stock several, including their own brand, which is reasonably priced (I think the other brand on the shelf was Daler Rowney (look in the sketchbook section).

    My own is made by Seawhite, who don't sell direct (other than at their Factory shop) but do supply lots of art shops. I'm fairly certain I've seen sketchbooks with black pages in Paperchase too.

  6. Heather, I can't tell from your blog what country you are in. Here in the UK there is a brand called Seawhite that sells a range of black page notebooks - http://www.seawhite.co.uk/online/index.php?route=product/category&path=20_118

    They have a links page so you can see where they can be purchased online.

  7. Might be worth trying http://www.hobsonsoriginal.com/ I don't know but it's the sort of thing they probably do. I got a set of their plain sketch books the other week and was pretty impressed.

  8. I have a black journal that bears the branding of the old Uni-ball Gellyz pastel gel pens - alas, the pens are discontinued, and the journals are nowhere to be found.

    However! I was determined to find a resource, and found this company in Wisconsin that carries a line of black paper products for use with gel pens: http://www.millerpadsandpaper.com/Gel-Ink-Paper_c41.htm
