This is a list of the Factory Seconds that we sell at a discounted price. These are some reasons they are "seconds":


  • There are manufacturing defects such as excessive number of wavy pages, crooked spines, torn pages, or other issues
  • There are dents or abrasions to the cover or edges that may have been due to being dropped by us or mishandled during shipping
  • It may be a discontinued notebook or version of a notebook that we no longer sell in quantity
  • It may be a sample that we received from our partners and never put into production
  • The cover may be a different type of material that we no longer use
  • It may be missing a sleeve, blotter sheet or plastic envelope


Please note:


  • There are absolutely no returns or refunds on these items

  1. Hard to find a fault 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 11th Jul 2020

    These A5 68 gsm Tomoe notepads are fantastic and it's hard to find any faults with them. My best guess is that the first few pages weren't adhered to the binding, but it was literally only three pages. Great value and fantastic product.

  2. Can't find faults 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 8th Jul 2020

    I can't find anything wrong with my Writer to indicate that it's a second. Impressive shipping speed, very high quality notebook. No wonder these sell out so quickly!

  3. Great book 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 12th Aug 2019

    Cannot find any "faults" on this second. Waiting on my B6 slim traveler's notebook to use

  4. The books are great! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 17th Jun 2019

    I bought 2 factory seconds and honestly, I couldn't find any problems, they are great! The quality of the manufacture is really good, Tomoe River is the best paper ever.

  5. factory second with amazing quality 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 10th Jun 2019

    I have purchased many notebooks from this company in various sizes (A5, B6 slim, and a6) but this A5 writer was my first factory second and I see why these sell like hot cakes. It's the same amazing quality with unnoticeable (to me) differences that cause these to be extremely budget friendly notebooks. I would buy these over and over again.
