Craftsmanship & Color With Apica Notebooks

Apica Brand Story on

It’s love at first write. Precious and quirky, Apica is one of Japan’s most highly regarded paper manufacturers.

Imported directly from Japan, Apica’s CD series notebooks have acid-free paper that resists most pen bleedthrough. The flexible cover and svelte profile make their notebooks a travel-friendly favorite to stash in your purse, bag or briefcase. And their sewn bindings ensure they will last through classes, meetings, and daily abuse without pages falling out.

The CD-10 notebooks are 4 by 5.75 inches; the CD-11 notebooks are 5.75 by 8.25 inches; and the CD-15 notebooks are 7 by 10 inches.

The Apica CD Series Notebooks are perfect for students, professionals, and general use. Each notebook has lined pages in a soft grey ink and is available in five great cover colors: green, red, blue, white, and yellow. Sold in sets of 3, the Apica CD Notebooks are sophisticated and utilitarian notebooks used by students, professionals, jet-setters and more. And for an added touch of class, we love the Baroque flourishes that frame the front cover – perfect for writing in your name, project, subject, date, etc. – plus the quirky “Most advanced quality, Gives best writing features” written on the front.

And now, you can indulge yourself with the incredibly smooth paper of the Apica Premium CD Notebooks (A5, A6, and B5 sizes). You’ll be challenged to find another notebook with such a high quality vellum. Apica’s Premium CD Notebooks were developed in celebration of Apica’s 25th anniversary (2012). The silky smooth, acid-free paper can handle pencil, ballpoint pens, and rollerball pens, and some fountain pens. The classy header on the front cover says it all: “Choose the paper like you would a good pen.”
(The Apica Premium CD Notebooks come in three versions: black cover with plain pages, blue cover with ruled pages, red cover with graph pages.)

    Awesome, I’ve got one of these notebooks! I actually bought it at a local bookstore and I knew nothing about it. I have yet to try it though… I’ll have to dig it out!

      Many of us didn’t know about this brand either until someone brought one of the little ones in. They’re so cute and we use them for all kinds of things now!

    I have been using the Apica brand notebooks for years and first purchased one at the Japan pavilion at Epcot Center at Walt Disney World. However, they have been very difficult to find at most retailers. It is by far the greatest paper I have ever put a pen to. The pen just glides over the pages like silk. If one can be addicted to paper then sign me up for rehab! I am truly excited for this anniversary edition.
