I'm looking for hard-backed, top-spiral, unlined notepads, A5-size, if possible with printed side margin for consecutive interpreting. Do you know any online stationery serving this kind of notepad? Since I'm living in Germany, it should be a German or European provider to avoid higher shipping costs.

Currently I'm using this one, which is not bad but it is lined:

Maybe you have any other alternatives. Thanks!

Top spiral A5 notepads are known as "steno" notepads and come either with or without lines.

Two makes I regularly use:

EAN​ 5411028020935

EAN​ ​3266810736851

And another one available on amazon.de

In France you can find this unlined, spiral bound pad, in quite a few stationers, though most pads are lined or squared.

I quite like the Clairefontaine "Pupitre" pads although they are lined, but they were the best ones with respect to a hard back I could find in Germany. They are 103 x 170 mm with 160 pages and large spirals which makes page-turning easy when standing during consecutive.

I found them in a little stationery shop in Cologne and asked them to order quite a number of pads for me since 2-3 pads were of course not enough at the time.

Yes, the Clairefontaine Pupitre pads were great, even if lined. Unfortunately the new collection has a very thick plastic cover. So when I had used my backlog, I bought some in France. I haven't find an online source yet. At one point I even considered to order some at a printer. I got a quote, but my own need did not justify the ordering of such a large quantity. Hope someone will provide a source.
