Grid Pad

A5 landscape desktop pad with 2.5mm grid pattern


Inspired by the notepad by the telephone from a bygone era, our desktop planner pads are designed to live on your desk ready for when an idea strikes.

A casual canvas for immediate notes and sketches, our desktop pads use a 100gsm Regular paper, which is slightly more light-weight and more textured than our notebook papers. The Grid Pad is about the simple beauty of a grid, perfect for all kinds of notes and sketches.

Why you'll love it

Printed and bound in Aberdeen

We're proudly transparent about how and where our stationery is made. Our Desktop Planner Pads are printed on a litho press and bound into pads by a family-run press in Bridge of Don just north of Aberdeen. With over 50 years experience, James and the team have been sharing their expertise with us since 2015 when they made our very first notebook covers.

> How It's Made

Great paper

For our Desktop Planner Pads, we use a 100gsm paper with a little more texture. As with all our papers, it is carefully chosen for its performance with fountain pen and other specialist tools.

Grid pad - where have you been all my life?

Really appreciate the quality and design of the grid pad. It’s easy to use. The plain border is great, leaving space where I can punch holes in the border and store pages easily. Will purchase again.
