The innovative disc-binding system used in Atoma’s notebooks gives you the best features of wire-bound books and ring binders in a single convenient notebook.
Atoma are so renowned in their native Belgium that the name is often used as a general term for notebooks of this type - an atoma, in the same way we refer to any vacuum cleaner as ‘a hoover’. But why settle for a copy when you can have the quality of the original Atoma system?
With a system this flexible, you can really use it however you like - we’re all different, so we don’t all need the same notebook.
Once the patent on Atoma’s disc system expired, many other companies started making copies. In the US, Levenger’s Circa system is popular, and here in the UK, the Staples Arc system is better known. Atoma is the original, and is probably the best quality of its type, with over 65 years of experience at making a system that works well. Real Atoma paper is made with longer fibres, at 90gsm, so it’s stronger. Why buy copies when you can have the quality of the real Atoma system?
Georges Mottart had led “Papeteries Mottart”, a paper wholesaler, since the 1920s. André Thomas and Andre Martin developed the disc binding system there in 1948, and their surnames gave it a name - ThOmas and MArtin, giving us Atoma. The success of the system led the company to refocus purely on making Atoma notebooks.
80% of their production is still carried out in Belgium, to maintain the quality of their products.
Author Michael Jecks, known as the master of the medieval murder mystery, loves using these notebooks, and loves the flexibility of the system. See more about how he uses them here:
