Erin Condren Notebook Review

On my desk, in front of me now, I have seven Erin Condren Notebooks.

Yes, seven! Some are new, some I’m currently using and some are full but I refer back to what’s in them frequently.

I thought it was time for me to share an Erin Condren Notebook review with you and the reasons they’re my go-to for beautiful, high-quality notebooks.

I’m sharing my two favourite kinds of Erin Condren Notebooks: coiled and softbound.


Coiled Erin Condren Notebook Review

The signature coiled notebooks are packed with pages, different layouts and with numerous designs to choose from.

Additionally, they have snap-in accessories to help boost productivity as well as interchangeable covers to change the look of your notebook.

There are two sizes to choose from – 8.5″ x 11″ or 7″ x 9″ and four coil options – Platinum, Gold, Rose Gold, Black.

Layout-wise, you can choose from:

  • Classic Lined with College Ruled Lines
  • Productivity with College Ruled Lines + Functional Task Lists
  • Dot Grid for a Flexible & Versatile Layout
  • Sketchbook for a Free & Open Layout

Every time I buy a new notebook, I like to choose a brand new cover and there are SO many to pick from. I use them for a variety of reasons but especially for work, so a lined layout works best for me.

I love how thick and soft the paper is and how easy to write on. The pages feel so soft to touch and I’ve tried numerous different kinds of pens and they all write beautifully.

My favourite all-time pens are FriXion pens because you can erase anything you write. On EC notebooks, erasing is as easy as writing!

You can buy FriXion pens online here.

The coil makes the notebooks easy to fold and lie flat. It feels much more luxurious than a typical notebook and this is why the Erin Condren range make perfect notebook gift ideas.

Whenever I’m stuck for a gift idea, or I’m buying for someone who loves stationery as much as I do, I always choose a personalised notebook gift from Erin Condren.

As with the LifePlanners, you can add your name to the front – making them a personalized notebook gift your friend will treasure.

If you’re already a fan of Erin Condren LifePlanners, you’ll love the notebooks as the quality is exactly the same.

From choosing one of the many pretty designs, coil covers and layout, you’ll be spoilt for choice!

Erin Condren Softbound Notebooks

I recently got my first softbound notebook and love it. It’s become my meditation journal and each morning or last thing at night, I meditate and then write what comes up for me in my notebook.

These are smaller and more streamlined books for note-taking, list-making, bullet journaling and everything in.

Although they’re bound rather than coiled, they lay flat and also come in many beautiful designs.

These are the perfect handbag size and are also a beautiful notebook gift idea! With 124 pages, they’re a portable 5″x 8″ with three foil colours to choose from. You can also choose from classic lined or a dot grid layout.

I hope you enjoy learning how to make planner stickers or how to start a sticker business!

I’ve been making and selling stickers for journals and planners since 2016 and it’s become a wonderful and creative way to turn my hobby into a side hustle, then full-time online business.

Whether you want to make Cricut stickers, Silhouette stickers or you’re starting from complete scratch, you’re in the right place. Making planner stickers can be for you, or to start an Etsy sticker shop and sell stickers online and you don’t need any previous experience to get started.
