Here's the scoop on Moleskine journals:

Their customizable journals come in a variety of different sizes, bindings, and type and amount of paper. Now that can seem a little daunting so let's narrow down the field of possibilities to come up with some meaningful options. At the low end, there are small, soft cover journals with fewer sheets of paper, and at the higher end are large, hard-bound journals with more sheets of paper. There are also premium offerings like journals that are 'smart' (written entries are automatically converted to digital format - these are ~$200) as well as gift sets of the 'regular' types of journals.

Here are the main parameters to consider:


  • Pocket size 3.5" x 5.5"

  • Large 5" x 8.25"

  • XL 7.5" x 10"

  • XXL 8.5" x 11"

Type of paper:

  • Ruled lines - all styles are available with ruled paper.

A few also have the option of...

  • Blank

  • Graph paper (squares)

  • Dots (on a grid)


Hardcover (traditional) vs softcover (more economical)


Most of the journals come in neutral colors - black is the most common, several also in navy, tan, and a few styles are available in several colors. If there is a strong preference for a specific color, say, red, we need to know that.

Here are a few popular options:

Pocket sized hard cover - 3.5" x 5.5" - 192 pages (96 ruled sheets) - ITEM #40710 - available in black or white, with the logo done in color or as a foil stamp, or debossed. ~$16 Expandable inner pocket on back cover.Moleskine-hard-cover



The large size hard cover - 5" x 8.25" - ITEM #48060 is most popular. It looks like the above - similar parameters but 240 pages (120 sheets) - and comes in several colors for ~$22



The journals can be dressed up considerably by replacing the Moleskine band with a custom band ($2.25) featuring the customer's artwork, a picture of their building, campus, or a group photo. Here are some examples.


The inside cover can also be custom printed on some styles:


Moleskines come individually shrink wrapped by default (which looks pretty nice 'as is'), or you can add a gift box for $4. Can further add value by pairing with a Moleskine pen ($12) which is designed specifically to click onto the side of the hardcover journals.


This 'Writer's Gift Set' packages a large notebook and a pocket-sized hardcover together in a gift box ~$36


At the more economical end of the spectrum are the softcover journals.

Large size soft cover - 5" x 8.25" - ITEM #40065 is the more popular of the soft covers - 80 pages (40 ruled sheets) - available in several colors, with the logo done in color or as a foil stamp. Flap pocket on inside back cover. ~$8.255-1-soft-cover-designMoleskine-soft-cover
