New Livescribe Paper Product – Grid Notebooks

There’s a new Livescribe Paper Product option that we “may” have available in the Australia/New Zealand market shortly.

The paper product has Grid lines rather than the standard ruled notebooks.

Livescribe Dot Paper - Grid notebooksThese notebooks are available in both A5 and A4 pads and are sold as a 4-pack.

Who Could Use These Notebooks?

I think these notebooks are going to appeal to users who are working in design industries (such as architecture, interior design, engineering), students studying subjects such as optometry, science, built environment, or even sales reps who need to capture sketches, schematics, or site inspections when working with prospects and customers.

What do you think?

Could you use Grid notebooks in addition to the standard ruled pads?

    Yes, I certainly will. Hope we get them. I’m still waiting for the sticky notes, BTW. Disappointing that they’re not available.

      Hi Angela,
      I’ll have more info on the grid notebooks shortly. They look really nice so I’m sure they’ll be popular.

      I’m hoping to have news on the sticky notes shortly as well. Note that I’m bringing a set back from Livescribe head office for you!

      cheers Mark

    As a software developer I’d use these for all sorts of ah-hoc diagrams.

    I’ll probably do most of my diagrams in landscape rather than portrait orientation though, it would be good if LiveScribe Desktop had a page orientation/rotation feature to support that.

  3. Jez says:

    Have been hanging out for grid notebooks. I’ve always found them far more useful than lines as you can turn them both orientations.

    A5 much more portable and great to use as flash cards if you can tear them out (like the starter notebook)

    • Mark Parker says:

      I’ve seen the A4 Grid notebook and it looks really nice. I agree with you re the A5 as I tend to use the Portfolio a lot these days when I travel so the A5 would be more convenient for me as well. Hopefully I’ll have some ETA info shortly

    I have seen these on the US Site and have been very keen to get my hands on them.
    (along with the sticky notes….)

    Value stream maps, flow charts, product sketches, floor plans, site maps, there are plenty of things I use Grid Books for. Now 1 less step in getting from paper to cloud.

    Agree with Lachlan, portrait view in the desktop would be excellent.

  5. David says:


    Great teaser. I’m ready to order, particularly interested in the A4 – is that also a “may” or just what you have seen? Any estimate on the ETA?


    • Mark Parker says:

      Hi David,
      We’re going to get them in Australia, it’s just a matter of a little bit more time whilst we get stocks down from the distribution centre.

      We’ll announce availability through our blog and email newsletter.

      Thanks for your feedback

    Hi Mark,
    Grid is good (when??)
    Unruled is better (non conformist here). I keep meaning to ask why the unruled A5s are always out of stock.

    OK, why?

    Does the thing (thing -> LiveScribe and MyScript software) still recognise cursive script off unruly pages? Apologies if this has already been thrashed.



    • Mark Parker says:

      Grid notebooks have been in stock for some weeks now –

      In relation to unruled journals – this is a situation outside our control. We’ve long argued that there is demand for these products in Australia but we’ve not been able to get the regional warehouse (i.e. not Livescribe) to stock the product. At this point we’re probably going to airfreight some stocks in off our own initiative. Bear with me whilst I sort this out.

      Finally, MyScript does recognise ‘old-school’ cursive writing. It’s not an expensive app so I’d recommend giving it a try

      cheers Mark

    Hi Mark,
    Thanks for the response. I’m already using MyScript and the built in LiveScribe capabilities. My query was more to do with the unlined stationery. Do both of those still perform recognition with unlined pads etc?

    For example, I can search for words (LiveScribe has some fuzzy mechanism that’s quite good) on lined stationery.
