You may have noticed that the denizens of Smith Journal have a thing for fine stationery. It's no surprise, then, that we were instantly enamoured with the products of US company Doane Paper.
Founded in 2005, Doane is based around the simple idea of providing notebooks with both lines and a grid on the same page. It now produces a variety of notebooks, journals, jotters and other scribbling apparatus.
The pleasant thing about these products is that they're fairly utilitarian and unaffected - and, as an added bonus - quite cheap. Result.
