I purchased the Paperchase Agenzio weekly planner while in London last year and liked the simple layout (the only con is the thin paper), so when I saw the Agenzio dot grid notebooks this time around, I picked up the lavender one to see if the paper quality had improved.
- Size: Approx. 6″ wide x 8.75″ high (medium size, there’s a smaller size too)
- Softcover (leatherette material)
- Stitched binding
- 187 Numbered pages
- 4 Index pages
- 80 GSM paper
- Pocket folder
Price: 12 pounds
Let’s take a closer look!

The leatherette cover means the planner is very lightweight… but this material isn’t very sturdy. It was scuffed in my suitcase on the journey home.
I’m not sure how long the notebook was sitting on the shelf before I bought it, or if the elastic band is just too tight but it’s completely indented into the cover.
Approx 0.5″ thick
There are 4 index pages at the front of the notebook.
4mm dot spacing (so slightly smaller than the 5mm spacing of most dot grid notebooks)
I really like that the page numbers are below the dot grid – some notebooks place the page numbers inside the grid which can be annoying to read if you’ve used all of the dots to create your spread.
The pages lay flat on their own:
The paper quality is disappointing – so thin that everything has ghosting. For the price of the notebook (around $23 AUD) I’d expect better quality paper.
Pros of the Notebook
- Portable size
- Multiple cover colors to choose from
- Numbered pages
- Built in bookmark
- Index pages
- For the number of pages, the planner is very lightweight and thin
- Pages lay flat on their own
Cons of the Notebook
- Thin paper prone to ghosting
- Paper has a yellowish tinge (not bright white)
- Softcover isn’t sturdy
Would I use this notebook?
Unsure. I have plenty of dot grid notebooks now and due to the paper quality of this one, it’s definitely not at the top of the list.
