There is something special about my Levenger Leather Journal. It was given to me as a gift and when I would open it and look at the blank page something wonderful would occur. Words poured out of me onto the page and filled my soul desire to be a poet. As I watched the works appear I realized the beauty of writing is the blank page. When I was coming to end of the pages, I wasn't content to just go find another journal, I wanted my journal to be refilled with the same blank pages it was created to have. I received my refills just in time and once again watch the magic appear before me.

I, too, have had my Stanley journal for nearly 20 years, and I live and die by it. I agree that not only are the new lines too fat, but there are not enough pages in the filler.When you last switched I was worried enough that I bought 20 of the light colored cover version, which have now lasted me about 5 or 6 years.These new ones, for all the reasons already mentioned by others, ARE NOT USABLE FOR ME. I do not write particularly large, so bigger lines are not helpful.Why would you possibly decide to take something like fillers and keep changing them without keeping the old ones? You ship direct, not through distribution, so its not like it is a huge problem to have a batch made and keep them on a shelf in your warehouse, even if it turned out that only the few of us that comment actually buy them.There is no spoilage, they take up very little room. If it is a problem with printing a small run of them compared to other products, then raise the price a few dollars, i doubt anyone would care. Make them only available on the web, therefore you have no additional cost to print them in a catalog.I can't see any logical reason for you to drop the old fillers from your product list, as there is virtually no downside risk to Levenger, while the upside of producing them creates continuing loyalty from very happy customers, who all seem to buy them and recommend them as gifts for friends and family. (I, too, regularly am asked about and promote my Levenger Stanley journal).Please bring the old fillers back. I will NOT be ordering more of these current version, and will finally leave my journal behind after all these years if I have to.

from Memphis, TN
This was my first purchase from Levenger and I truly appreciate the beautiful quality of the product. I could purchase a journal anywhere for a lower price. However, I was looking for a journal that left an impression on myself and others. This is a perfect fit.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

nice but kinda pricey
Love the journal and like the refills but they seem expensive. I do appreciate that the journal can be refilled-- good to use and re-use. Other than that ,nice!
Quality is excellent overall, love the ivory color, the gilted pages, and the ruling. The pages stay open which eliminates the frustration often experienced with other journals, and I like the sewn pages (rather than glued). My last journal (some $10 thing from a big box office store), which was "great", the pages started coming out because of the heavy use and inferior construction albeit at a lower price point.Something so simple as having a little ribbon bookmark would complete the package. A surprising oversight!

The Beauty of the blank page
My Favorite Journal for 17 Years
from Detroit, MI
I've kept a diary/journal for over 30 years, the past 17 of which I've kept exclusively in the Stanley Journal w/ Desk Journal Refills. This journal/refill is by far my favorite. I hope this refill will be available for the rest of my life... and then some, as my daughter is also a Stanley Journal Keeper. I plan to buy one for my grandson, though I should probably wait until he's out of diapers, at least.Because I had stocked up, I was using the old refills for some time after they'd been replaced. Negative reviews about the new wider lines had me worried, but now that I'm using the current refill, I don't notice the difference. The old refills had a light-colored cover and more pages, both of which I prefer. Other than that, this is still the best journal/refill available.
Stanley Journal Refills
Thanks for bringing back the Stanley Journal. I was very pleased to find refills for my Levenger leather Stanley Journal that I have had for a number of years and like very much.
Best Diary I have found
I have been using these refills since Levenger came out with the beautiful cover, many years ago. I use either a fountain pen or ballpoint (both from Levenger) and I have no problem at all. They stack easily to store when I have completed one and starting on the next. About the only thing I can think of is a neat storage box made just for these-size wise, that will hold the several dozen I have filled over the years!

Less bleedthrough than old, but no cover imprint.
Keep the lined re-fills
I just began using the lined refills and they are perfect for me. I can appreciate that some people like the blank ones, especially if one is drawing. I love the lined re-fills, and the line size is actually great for me.
Perfect Size and Shape
This is the best journal I've ever purchased! The size, paper weight and texture is amazing. I will definitely be buying more by the cases! Beats the "moleskin" journals without a doubt!
