Bull & Stash started with an idea about ideas.
For thinkers and creatives, notebooks are a must. But once they’re full, they end up on a dusty shelf and we have to start over with something new. You’ve got to look around, do a little speed dating in the notebook isle—it’s hard to find the one. What if you never had to start over in the first place?
Here’s the idea: create a notebook that lasts forever and never runs out of paper. This is it. Beautiful leather binding, carefully selected paper, and a simple design that allows you to replace the pages when they’re full.
For whatever adventures, projects and stories lie ahead of you, we made a notebook that you can take every step of the way.
New options: black leather & planner paper
At $11,000 we promised we would offer an option for black leather. Here it is: while this isn't the final black leather we'll be using for production, it's a great look at what your new best friend looks like in black.
We've made it all the way to $25,000! As promised, we're releasing a planner page option for backers who pledge for the Stash or the Reporter. Our design is based upon the very pages that helped us organize this project in the first place, and we are grateful to be able to share them with you all.
Thick oiled leather cover: Beautiful, durable oiled leather will protect your notes and weather beautifully over time; the more you use it, the more it becomes yours.
Metal hardware: We use sturdy Chicago screws so your pages aren’t going anywhere. When you’re ready to replace your pages, an easy hand twist is all you need.
Quality paper: Choose the paper that best meets your creative needs. Whether it’s lined paper or thick sketch paper, we’ve made careful selections to give you the best quality, #70 paper.
Paper types: We’ve put a lot of thought into our paper types. Whether you need lined, grid, or heavy drawing paper, we’ve got you covered. In the future, we’ve got our eyes on recycled and waterproof paper, too. A refillable notebook means you never have to settle for less than the perfect match. You can find paper refills at Bullandstash.com starting January 15th, and in stores beginning March. Pricing will range between $3 - $6 per 50 page refill pack. After you select your reward we will send you an email asking which type of paper you would like.
Stash your genius: When it’s time to swap paper out, simply unscrew the Chicago screws, lift out your notes, and replace them with fresh paper. Put your most treasured sketches on display or spread out your notes to take it all in—with a Bull & Stash notebook, archiving your genius is easy.
Sizes: Whether your notebook becomes a hiking companion, sketchpad, or budget-keeping tool, different sizes and formats meet different needs. Choose from an array of carefully designed options to find your perfect match.
What you are supporting:
We’ve designed a durable, beautiful product to last a lifetime; this kind of craftsmanship has its costs. With your support, we can cover our startup costs, invest in more paper options (recycled and waterproof) and buy our own leather press so that we can make everything in house.
It’s the help of our supporters that has brought us this far and to say thank you, we add every one of them to “Our Stash” at bullandstash.com. But to really show our gratitude, we’ll be sending our Kickstarters different notebook packages. Once you receive your notebook, the rewards are sure to continue.
- Early January: Ship leather to manufacturer for production.
- Late January: In full force production & assembly of notebooks.
- Early February: Begin packaging and shipping of single notebooks.
- Late February: Last of small orders packaged and shipped.

Risks and challenges
We have worked hard behind the scenes to make this company a success. With smart design we’ve made assembly simple and materials accessible; our suppliers are ready for the next steps and we are too.
We know that some challenges cannot be predicted, so we have established multiple back-ups for every step of production and distribution. Whether a crucial machine malfunctions or inclement weather delays a shipment, we are prepared to work around any obstacles that may come and carry on with minimal delay.
If there is a delay in the reward process for any reason, earnest, open communication with our Kickstarters is our number one priority. Your support has brought our dreams to life; we’ll get your notebooks as soon as possible so that you can fill them with your dreams, too.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
