297 Circa Action Refills 99 each of BL OR Dot
After using Circa products for years, I decided to try the action method refills. Love the design for taking notes in meetings and the quality of the paper is fine. I use a Mont Blanc Diplomat ink pen and only write on one side. There is slight bleed-through on the reverse, but the front takes ink precisely with clean lines.

Nice - but wrong size
The colors are bright and look great to work with. However I thought I was ordering the junior size, and I was a bit disappointed when they arrived in letter. The page isn't very clear about size.
I kept them because it wasn't work the shipping to return and I think they could still be very helpful. Unfortunately I carry a junior sized book with me for all of my client meetings and this just didn't work.

Great concept, poor packaging
I've been eyeballing the Circa notebooks for a while, and decided to finally commit after using a friend's and finding it immensely helpful with my class and meeting notes. I was excited to see this Behance paper with what's essentially a "To Do" list built into it, and liked the idea of the dot grid, so I ordered a full pack of 297 sheets of paper. It's pricey, but I've only heard good things about Levenger so I figured it'd be worthwhile.
Unfortunately, while the paper is more or less good quality (ink smears a bit from my Pentel G2 pens, but only bleeds through a little) I can't use it in a professional setting for the simple fact that it was damaged in transit. Every single one of my 297 sheets of paper has at least one significantly bent corner. Many have little folds or tears right where the Circa holes are, so I can't move them around for fear that they'll rip.
I've loved everything I've received from Levenger before, starting with a wallet I received as a present over three years ago; I can only assume that this was some kind of fluke in the production quality.

Versatile organization for Circa
This product gives me lots of format choices in one package. I love the color-coded Action steps in 2 colors to organize different projects. Sheets have a dot grid section for improptu sketches or notes. If I need more space for sketching I simply use the full sheets of dot grid paper. Great way to organize and prioritize projects and action items from meetings or for everyday tasks. I use in my Circa leather notebook along with annotation ruled paper when I need to take lots of notes.
