Apica CD-5 Notebook - Pastel Assorted Colors, Lined (2.83 x 4.02) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cute size, amazing paper quality I bought this as part of the Notebook sampler to try out different pen and ink combinations. This paper is so thin, I had my doubts, but it really works well with fountain pen ink. I splattered some ink when testing out some colors, so I'm providing you the picture of the back of that page so you can see just how little bleed through there is, after two huge globs of ink settled on the page. I decided it would be better to just let it dry than to try to clean. I thought this would have ruined the next several pages, and instead the back of the "'accident" is still quite usable. I've had worse bleed through with regular penmanship and the wrong ink in my Quo Vadis and Rhodia notebooks! This is probably not my go-to size although I can definitely see some uses for to-do lists, email addresses or phone numbers, etc. I'm looking forward to trying out some larger sized Apica notebooks in my next order.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great paper, perfect size, value priced Never be without a note pad again! Perfect size for a shirt pocket. Looks nice enough to pull out to jot a quick note during a business lunch. Paper is s-m-o-o-o-o-o-o-t-h. Have used with several inks and have experienced no ghosting or bleeding. Lays flat (very important for a notebook this small). Best bang-for-the-buck for a go-anywhere pocket notebook.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome A sweet little notebook that fits easily into a shirt or pant pocket. I keep one in the car too. The quality of the paper is great and it has a nice cover. They also lay nice and flat when opened.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Surprising Paper Quality Not only is the paper of superior quality, which performs well with the TWSBI EF nib, but the size of paper holds a great deal of notes. Fits unnoticed in shirt pocket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very small and handy, good quality notebook I ordered this little notebook along with the smallest size of two other brands (Clairefontaine and Rhodia Ice, both staple bound). This one is the smallest of the three and would easily tuck in almost any place you'd want to carry a notebook. To have 34 sheets of paper it is surprisingly thin. I received the one with the yellow cover, which is actually a light tan. I've not written on the front of the cover, but I did write on the inside of the cover and it took the ink well. This style notebook would be suitable for most anyone who wants a very small, easy to carry notebook. The lined paper is a slightly off-white color and has a nice finish. The paper is thin, but my Metropolitan fine point pen with Kon-Peki ink did not show through to the back and did not feather. Using a TWSBI with a 1.1 italic nib and black ink, there was some show-through but no bleed-through or feathering, so I'd say the paper is fountain pen friendly. I can use both sides of each sheet with no problem. The pages are not perforated to tear out easily, if that matters to you. It is nicely bound with a sewn binding, a quality feature in a notebook currently costing under $2. I'm pleased with all three little notebooks. The Clairefontaine wins in smoothness and quality of paper, the Rhodia Ice for number of pages and micro-perforations, and this Apica for being the most unobtrusive and easiest to carry, as well as for lowest price and having a lot of pages for its thickness. This is an all-around good little notebook.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Small Notebook These are very nice small notebooks. 36 sheets of quality paper. Apica paper is very good fountain pen friendly paper. 2.8 inches by 4 inches - can slip in most any pocket or purse slot. We are putting one in each of our cars. Sometimes you just need something like this for notes, and these take up very little space.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A nice notebook for my shirt pocket! I got one of these as a gift, and realized it is the perfect item to keep in my shirt pocket for notes. It is thin, and does not have rings, so it fits flat in my pocket, along with my favorite Pilot Precise V7 RT pen. It has quite a few pages (I have not counted) but is handy for keeping notes all in one place. Then I save the old ones to refer back to. This way I always have an old fashioned place to make notes (rather than my smartphone).
