    I’m going to regret asking this, but is this just April fools or what? The web page doesn’t actually let you print on a custom-ordered Moleskine, which would be amazing. It’s just generating a formatted page to print and glue in to your Moleskine. Is this any different than making your own word document? Am I a sucker?

      Yeah uhhh suckered here too – I think they want you to glue them in? But I tried this mod once on a moleskin and the extra thickness of a 2/1 add on (2 new pages glued front and back on 1 bound page) on just 8 pages popped the binding in 1 week of back pocket use.

      I had my hopes up and everything… :-(

    I saw this story floating around late May, so probably not an April Fools’ joke.

    Never did figure out how they expected you to attach the pages though…

    I’d guess it’s an April fool’s joke. The cost to custom print one Moleskine would be high.

    I just print my lines on HP 32# laser paper and bind it with cerlox combs for my notebooks. I love the bindings, feel, and sizes of Moleskines but the paper is just too crappy for a fountain pen.
