The Nuuna is a much hyped notebook so when I found it in Germany I splurged and grabbed a copy. After doing a pen test I understood the hype. The paper is really smooth and easy to write on. The page size is also larger than most dot grid notebooks and the dot grid spacing is 3.5mm (most dot grid notebooks are 5mm).

Let’s take a closer look!
To enlarge the screen of the video, click the square icon in the bottom right hand corner of the video (it will say ‘full screen’ when you hover your mouse over the icon).
The pages are white with a grey dot grid pattern. All of the edges of the pages are black. There were a few cover designs to choose from. I went for this map of Berlin:
The cover is a soft bendy material.. Just over 0.5″ thick (1.5cm)
I originally thought the entire inside pages were black but they’re white with a black edge.
There are no pre-printed pages like an index. All 176 pages have the same 3.5mm dot grid throughout.
All of the pages have an approx. 1.1cm wide margin on all sides. I like having a margin (and would rather have a margin than the dots getting cut off on the edge of the page) but this one is a little too big. At least the page numbers sit below the dot grid.
The pages don’t lay perfectly flat but at least they don’t want to close on their own. I find it hard to rule a straight line with softcover notebooks like this one – you may want to place a thin notebook underneath the shorter side (the front of the notebook if you were to use the page where it’s open in the photo below), so there is a flat surface to write on.
I’ve had to go back and update my previous post on dot grid notebooks with the smoothest paper to include this one. It’s feels really nice to write on but there is ghosting on the back of the pages.
Pens that wrote really well on the smooth paper:
- Stabilo point 88 fine
- Schenider topliner
- Anything fineliner
- Marvy Japan Le Pen
There was ghosting for all highlighters, stamps and the marker pens.
Pros of the Notebook
- Larger page size than most bullet journals
- Paper is very smooth to write on
- Different cover designs (not just boring black!)
- Pages lay flat
- Generous page count (176 pages)
- Dot grid size that’s hard to find
Cons of the Notebook
- No ribbon bookmark
- No pocket folder
- No pre-printed pages e.g. index / contents
- Heavier than most dot grid notebooks (due to the larger page size)
Would I use this notebook?
I haven’t tried bullet journaling in a 3.5mm grid. Dot grid spacing less than 5mm is hard to come by so I purchased this notebook specifically to try it out a smaller dot grid.
This notebook is available on Amazon (affiliate link).
