Hi guys, I am from the UK but recently started working in the USA, I am unfamiliar with most of the US paper brands and don't want to import notebooks from Europe so thought I would ask for recommendations here. It originally took me a fair amount of experimentation to find my favourite notebooks for work in the UK (me being a bit fussy). I like lined spiral notebooks with paper good enough to write on both sides with an FP, obviously without bleed-through or feathering etc etc.I don't mind but also don't need perforations or punched holes but optionally do like a bit of tabs / colour coding. The notebooks I have been using are the following Clairefontaine ones which I can get in the US - to be honest though, although the paper is nice white 90 g/m2 it is not perfect as the coating does mean start-up / dry up issues occasionally. I can get these in the US, but my guess is you have something better http://www.zen101388.zen.co.uk/notepad.jpg Could any of my US friends recommend a good quality spiral wound hard back notebook with nice paper I can order on Amazon.com? Many thanks Jolltax
Large grid-ruled Candy Code 4-subject Notebook Manufacturer: Miquelrius As an aficionado of grid/graph/squared/quad ruled paper, finding good paper at a price I'm willing to pay is a challenge. The Miquelrius Candy Code 4-subject Notebook in the large size with grid ruling is a current favorite of mine. The large size in grid rule has 140 A4 sheets of 70 g paper which are spiral bound, and are perforated for easy removal. The sheets have 4 holes on the left margin. This suits my purposes, since I use book rings to keep loose sheets together. If you want to use the sheets with a US three-ring binder, you'll need to punch additional holes (and trim the top margin). Each page's ruling, heading box, and right margin are printed in one of four colors: orange, green, red, or blue. I would prefer one color per notebook, but Miquelrius' one-subject notebooks have far fewer sheets. Bleedthrough is non-existent with all of the pens (extra fine, fine, and medium nibs) and inks I've used with this notebook. Feathering with extra fine and fine nibs is non-existent, and with the lone medium nib I tested it is minimal. Showthrough is minor with extra fine and fine nibs, except for my wettest fine which causes moderate showthrough. Pens and inks used in the photos below: Pilot Prera fine, KWZ IG Red no. 3 Pilot Prera fine, R & K Solferino Pilot Prera fine, KWZ IG Turquoise Waterman Phileas extra fine, Iroshizuku Kon-peki Waterman Phileas extra fine, Namiki Blue Pilot Custom 74 fine, Iroshizuku Aji-sai Pilot Custom Heritage 92 fine, R & K Alt-Goldgrun Pilot Custom 823 fine, Iroshizuku Fuyu-syogun Bexley Jitterbug fine, Iroshizuku Yama-budo Aurora Ipsilon fine, KWZ IG Green no. 4 Pilot Varsity medium, turquoise ink While there are higher quality notebooks, they also cost more per sheet. I paid US $12.99 for my notebook, which is more than I would like to pay, but is (obviously) not more than I am willing to pay.
Hey all, This is one of my first times posting so sorry if I'm doing anything annoying or wrong, but I was wondering if anyone has had any experience with this notebook company called Write Notepads & Co.? They're based out of Baltimore, which seems really cool since I'm in the area. Kind of a total letterpress junkie so I'm already in love. It says on their website that they work with fountain pens, but I couldn't find any reviews except this one on Inkdepenence. The coolest thing is they have some for LEFTIES...like, what?! I'm a righty but I would so get these as gifts if they're any good. I'm just not sure if this company is legit...was thinking about ordering some if others have had any experience. I've followed Inkdependence for a while but I'm just still on the fence about it, especially because I'd probably get the larger size and would want to order a few to balance out the cost of shipping. It doesn't say what kind of paper they use so I'm a little iffy on it. Seems like the lined kind have a teensy bit of ghosting with wetter inks, but I'm mostly interested in the plain paper. So has anyone heard of this company or bought from them before? And if not, does anyone know of any other brands/suggestions for good-quality letterpressed notebooks suitable for fountain pens? I would really prefer if they were made in the US. I like spiral-bound, but I'm open to perfect-bound too. Again sorry if being a total noob! Thanks in advance!
