"A Sticky Situation" (1960) by Carl Barks

I like how advertising is literally still exactly as sexist as they’re joking about in this comic from 54 years ago.

What if I told you, this notebook from Ogami had paper, made, of, stone?

Maud is intrigued...no really!

Welcome to Part 1 of the Ogami Professional Notebook by GruppoCartarama.

What made me get this notebook the moment I saw it was because of the paper (isn’t that the case for most notebooks?). The paper or as called by the company, “Repap” (hey, try reversing the letters), is made of stone, or specifically, calcium carbonate (CaCO3) and “non-toxic resins” i.e. plastic.

This notebook is toted SEVERAL times as being:

  • Tree-product free save for the cover
  • Waterproof (like a Rite-in-the-Rain book)
  • Tear-resistant
  • Economic (It was $20 as of this review when purchased from JetPens.com, you tell me if that’s economical at the end of this review)
  • Production creates less CO2 or carbon dioxide than most factory-made products
  • Recyclable in either plastic (preferred) or paper bins
  • "Soft"
  • No paper cuts. Okay let me try and—AAHH! Just kidding.

In the Ogami line there are:

  • 4 sizes: Mini (90 x 140 mm, 48 sheets), Small (130 x 210 mm, 64 sheets), Regular (195 x 240 mm, 80 sheets), and Wirebound (195 x 240 mm, 124 sheets)
  • All sizes come in Soft or Hardbound, though I am unsure about the Wirebound
  • 3 types of Rulings: Plain, Ruled, or Squared i.e. Graph
  • Professional or Quote Collection covers; Professional Collection having same foil print cover in Black, Gray, Aqua Green, and White, and the Quote Collection with well, big color graphics and quotes on them on a white cover

This particular model is the Gray Small Hardcover variant, having 64 sheets (128 pages) of Repap paper (have you reversed the letters yet?) with 2 cover sheets of regular tree-paper (gasp!), and is 5 in. x 8.5 in. x 1 16/32nds in. or 13 cm x 21 cm x 1.1 cm (the cover tells you the dimensions in millimeters). Repap is 120 micron or 140 g/m^2 in paper weight, with for this version a ruling of 8 mm apart and a 1.8 cm top margin. Cover is made of uncoated 300 g/m^2 paper (more like 10-ply Bristol board) and is binded through the company’s “Point Singer” binding. There is an elastic strap to keep the book closed, no ribbon bookmark. I can’t tell you the weight but true to its name, it feels like a slab of slate or something, a cheap bathroom tile if you’d like.

The inside cover and facing page allows you to place standard info like name and contact information. The rear cover page and facing page contain Repap information like that printed on the book sleeve.

Upon first opening the notebook you’ll find a leaflet which contains essentially all the info I’ve listed (why read it there when you can read it here beforehand?), but a little indiscretion is to be clarified:

  • The sheets are referred to as “pages” but are actually sheets, and I counted for my notebook each sheet to be sure
  • They say there’s a rear pocket in the Professional Collection, now I don’t know if that’s in the larger sizes, but I didn’t see no pocket in my book, how disappointing! I like pockets, it’s why I wear jackets, more pockets.

Did I mention that the leaflet talks about how Repap is made out of 80% calci—oh wait, you already knew that? Hmm, I don’t remember mentioning that.

Alright, now you know about the paper itself, but what about its performance? Is “stone paper” a gimmick? Find out, in Part 2!

Really thorough review of the Ogami notebooks made with stone paper!
