Bull & Stash is here to help the world think with greater clarity and confidence, one page at a time.


Quality over quantity

Choosing a notebook should be a thoughtful decision you make once and get to enjoy over a lifetime. Each notebook we make is built with a premium top-grain Italian leather cover, thick paper, and hand assembled in our US factory with this philosophy in mind.



Early thoughts

We were students at a liberal arts school in Oregon when we started Bull & Stash. This meant two things: we had a lot of ideas, and shrinking space in our desk drawers to keep them all (imagine towers of notebooks).

We agreed there needed to be a simple way to save our best ideas, and recycle our — well — not so good ones.

We started Bull & Stash to provide a simple, professional alternative to the status quo.


While we appreciated the overwhelming number of choices at retail stores, we were hard pressed to find a notebook that looked professional enough to take with us to our summer internships, and that wouldn’t leave us with overflowing drawers of used notebooks.


Rather than running to the local bookstore to sell our notebooks, we chose to bring the process of buying a notebook into the 21st century, and sell directly to you online. By doing this, we're able to listen to what you really want in the last notebook you ever purchase and offer it at a price that still makes you look smart.

We continue to write our story, and we hope our notebooks help you to write yours.
