Fill These Notebooks with Stories and Drawings
Every school supply list begins with a good notebook, and theShorthand Standard Notebook by Iron Curtain Press is exactly that. With classic wire ring edges and 160 pages, the notebook opens flat for easy use. Choose from the mint notebook with dot grid paper or the mustard color with graph paper inside. The best part? The paper all comes from renewable sources and the notebooks are manufactured right here in New York.
If you’re looking for a more classic place to jot down your notes, theRhodia Composition Book by Exaclair is what you need! Rhodia books are well loved by artists and writers for their super smooth, ultra white pages. You’ll quickly fall in love with the orange and black books too.
Is landscape more your style? No worries! TheRhodia Landscape WebNotebook is waiting for your drawings and doodles. With a cover made from vegan leather, the notebook features an inner pocket, ribbon marker, and elastic closure band.

Virtual meetings, online classes, and video calls with friends are sure to keep your schedule busy! But theShorthand Planner by Iron Curtain Press is here to help keep you organized. The classic-style planner includes monthly and weekly calendars in addition to ten blank pages for notes. The best part? The calendars are dateless - just in case you lose track and skip a month.
