For over a year now, I have been testing my creative skills in the form of bullet journaling, trying to get each month a theme to suit. As a result, I have tried and tested a fair number of pens and notebooks, to see which would make my perfect combination, and my journey led me to this… Hex & Ginger.
For a little background, Hex & Ginger, also known as Hex Codes and Ginger Tea, are a stationery company, selling notebooks, bullet journals, planners and diaries! Not only do they sell gorgeous pieces, but you may have even seen their products in Country & Town House of Stylist magazines!
My journey with them started late last year, as I needed to find a new notebook to replace my Leuchttern 1917. I enjoyed using my Leurchtern, but found that the paper quality wasn’t quite what I had expected, and seeing as I use a lot of colour and brush pens, I needed a notebook which could survive not only my drawing ability, but also the amount of ink I planned on using.
Despite having their own website, I actually found Hex & Ginger through their Etsy store! Immediately I fell in love with their White & Black dotted notebook, with dotted pages inside. Smart and sophisticated, this bullet journal notebook was my perfect design. Now to order it and test the pages!
Well…what can I say? Having read the product description, I already knew that the paper used in the Hex & Ginger notebooks were thicker than my previous Leurchtern, but oh my! The paper quality is nothing like I have seen before in such an affordable notebook. I have tried a multitude of pens on this paper, and I am yet to find a pen which bleeds through!
In addition to the general quality of the notebook, I would also like to comment on the obvious care taken in the creation of the books. You can see the delicate stitching throughout the notebook, which is such a nice touch. As a customer, you truly get a sense of worth and importance, and you can feel the passion of the sellers through the ordering process.
Overall, Hex & Ginger is a company I would thoroughly recommend to anyone in need of a notebook or diary, no matter what they were using it for. You can find them on the website, Etsy as well as on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram!
Until next time…
