Just be aware that with the Bernanke, it seems to still make a difference of what paper you're using, from my experience. I actually have a smearing issue in a MiquelRuis journal, and denser paper.  And if you were already aware, my apologies; I was rather dejected when I made that discovery.

Oh man! That's too bad. Thanks for the warning.

Hey Everyone,

 

I've been working like a dog making a lot of mistakes these past few months, and here are a few ideas in the form of flex fountain pens I think you'll enjoy.

Had to do it twice. Hit the back button on bottom and it reset everything. Was almost done.

Gosh I'm sorry to hear that. If I had to write that poll all over again, I wouldn't use the Google platform. Way too buggy with a poll of that size. I appreciate your data!

New flex pens! Love to see modern flex nibs with the performance of old flex nibs! Just sent the survey, only noticed the date of the first post after I pushed the sent button. Ah well, never mind, doing the survey was fun anyway. Really really curious about the finished product, from what I can see on the photos they might be on my next wish list :wub:

My website isn't up yet, but this:P1010694.jpg P1010698.jpg

 

 

seemed to be the most popular design, so a limited supply of these are up for sale on my Etsy store now. Details are on the listing.
