  1. Milligram has been offering its stock of black-covered Bloc Rhodia No.18 80g/m² lined (A4-sized, 7mm-ruled, with blue horizontal lines and a red vertical margin line) notepads on clearance for a week now, for A$5 each [/and/] with a “buy 3 for the price of 2” offer. The effective price is therefore A$10 for three, or $3.33 each when you buy in multiples of three on a single order, and that's if the purchaser is not eligible for any other discounts (such as the "Friends For Life" discount of 10% site-wide) that apply. I imagine it may be obstacle to some (or even most) prospective customers that the threshold for free domestic shipping on a single order is $69 (after discounts); without the FFL discount, one has to order 21 of those notepads at once to avoid the $5.99 delivery charge which would dilute the effective discount on the order, and 24 of them with the FFL discount. However, Milligram just announced today (a few hours ago) that it's offering free shipping for orders of $29 or more, for a limited time only. That means one can buy just nine of those notepads, delivery included, for a $30 outlay without the FFL discount, or get twelve notepads delivered for $36 with the FFL discount, if he/she uses an Australia delivery address. (Since Milligram delivers using Australia Post Parcel post service, Parcel Locker and Parcel Collection addresses are OK, as well as PO Boxes and physical/street addresses in Australia.) When I checked less than ten minutes ago, the maximum number of these notepads the system will accept on a single order is 426 — down from 472 three days ago — so I'll assume that's what Milligram thinks it has in stock and wants to clear. Rhodia paper fans, knock yourself out! Edit: Updated stock level
  2. Wondering if anyone has any experience with the Maruman x Somes A4 leather notepad holder (Amazon link)? I'm wondering whether it is worth the price (it can be found on ebay as cheap as $275).
  3. Hello Does anyone know if Lihit Labs make Twist Ring Notebook in A4 size? And if so where can I buy one from? I am based in the UK. Background I want to have an A4 notebook that lets you - Replace pages (without the risk of tearing anything) - Turn pages fast (with low friction) - Lets you open it FULLY (i.e. to 360 degree), so that it will lie completely flat on the table so that you can write on it. I have just bough an A5 "Twist Ring Notebook" made by Lihit Labs which I love. It's a very clever invention that does all the above. But I can't find anyone talking about A4 - certainly not here in the UK. That said I did find a photo of an A4 one so they must exist... J
  4. 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.
  5. So I've been using my 500 pack of Tomoe River paper, among other things to make summaries of tech books I need for work... I have a Clairefontaine sleeve with elastic straps but it's a bit tight, any ideas? Tomoe river is slightly taller than A4. I'd like something better than a plain folder to keep them from falling. Thanks!
  6. When going through some old things, I found an unused pad of Selecta paper, in a Rhodia-orange cover, paper quite bright white, with purple-grey quad ruling. I have no recollection of this brand, but the paper felt fairly smooth, with just a bit of tooth, and the page has a nice snappy feel, which is unusual in my high-humidity environment. Overall, I found the paper had to be paired with the right ink, but then it was quite nice. Most of the inks I tried bled — all but the kon-peki and Platinum carbon. For more details, read the hand-written review below. There was minimal feathering, but many inks spread. Detail: More detail: Closer: Perforation performance: The backing is not all that stiff, but still useful. Nice cover, matte card, thick enough to protect paper. I also wrote a couple of letters: with Iroshizuku kon-peki With Levenger cobalt: Bleed-through of cobalt: Bleed of review page:
  7. I want to leave a family tree and some memories of the various ancestors to my heirs. I'd like to find a bound book in roughly A4 size ( about 8.5x11" U.S.) That would give me room to draw the family tree and accommodate my large handwriting. Any suggestions for a journal or book that would survive the ages to come? Thanks in advance!
  8. Please help. All the fp friendly notebooks seem to be lined, or dotted, I'm looking for something with plain paper at least 90gsm (preferably heavier). I intend to use it as a handwriting 'project' by creating an 'illuminated' book, using marker pens, fine line markers, metallic acrylic paint and a flex pen (I find these easier to use than italic pens), so the paper needs to stand up to this. Art sketch books tend to have rough paper in them which isn't nice to write on. Availability in the UK is a must (online is fine), a pretty cover would be nice but isn't essential. Thanks in advance.
  9. Hello! This is a review of Tomoe River Paper It is my very first paper review, so I hope I'm addressing every possible issue. It is available from Jetpens.com (No affiliation) $15 for 100 sheets. My girlfriend was kind enough to buy some for me to try out. The following is my handwritten review and it's transcription: Overview:http://farm4.staticflickr.com/3665/12402196403_8ea52c6edc_c.jpgDSCF6583 by makey95, on Flickr Under Warmer Lighting:http://farm3.staticflickr.com/2816/12402049045_bab0699cff_c.jpgDSCF6602 by makey95, on Flickr The Pens Used (In No Particular Order, Capped):http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7320/12402502594_e68e63b59d_c.jpgDSCF6598 by makey95, on Flickr (Ordered Left to Right and Capped):http://farm6.staticflickr.com/5535/12402197043_d0aac890f0_c.jpgDSCF6601 by makey95, on Flickr Pens and Inks: Pen No. 1: Pick Pen Company; Pencil Pen Combo; Fine 14k; Diamine Monaco Redhttp://farm4.staticflickr.com/3785/12402197673_cd66a948d1_n.jpgDSCF6595 by makey95, on Flickrhttp://farm4.staticflickr.com/3829/12402504324_f601b4c874_n.jpgDSCF6588 by makey95, on Flickr Pen No. 2: Ranga; Ranga with Eversharp Flex; Flex Fine 14k; Diamine Monaco Redhttp://farm4.staticflickr.com/3686/12402502834_069b206c03_n.jpgDSCF6596 by makey95, on Flickrhttp://farm8.staticflickr.com/7408/12402051005_473b2196d2_n.jpgDSCF6589 by makey95, on Flickr Pen No. 3: Pilot; Parallel Pen; 2.4 mm Steel; Private Reserve Shoreline Goldhttp://farm4.staticflickr.com/3689/12402049865_d058a24fc5_n.jpgDSCF6597 by makey95, on Flickrhttp://farm8.staticflickr.com/7429/12402504054_30127f19d3_n.jpgDSCF6590 by makey95, on Flickr Transcription: Initial Observations: The paper is extraordinarily thin and has a very pleasing texture. Feathering/Bleedthrough: No noticeable feathering or bleed through but a fair amount of show through. May be annoying to some. Tactile Feedback/Drag/Toothiness: Very smooth but slightly more feedback than Clairefontaine. Unusual Dry times: Takes as long as Clairefontaine generally. Appearance/Design/Durability. Though thin, it feels durable and it looks lovely. Fountain Pen Friendly?: Yes! Other Media: _X_ Pencil X?_ Watercolour _X_Markers _X_India Ink Value/Comparison: A viable alternative to Rhodia, 15 cents a sheet. Definitely one of the best papers I have used. Overall Conclusion:Recommended for those who like this paper and don't mind a little show through. Smooth, lovely, and attractive. I will use this as stationery. Other Media Tests:http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7324/12402503854_2f763959a3_n.jpgDSCF6591 by makey95, on Flickrhttp://farm8.staticflickr.com/7443/12402050715_d898b05b99_n.jpgDSCF6592 by makey95, on Flickrhttp://farm4.staticflickr.com/3795/12402050425_1008da4fab_n.jpgDSCF6593 by makey95, on Flickrhttp://farm3.staticflickr.com/2813/12402503324_7f201c5374_n.jpgDSCF6594 by makey95, on Flickr Final Words:I really enjoyed this paper and I think it looks nice. Flex writing can deform the paper a little (where the tines dug in shows) and of course wetting the paper also deforms it slightly. It is prone to creasing. I am not sure if the watercolors would work very well, but I have put samples up so that others may judge for themselves. I don't think it would be a good idea to try and do anything wet on wet with watercolors on this paper. Not shown in this review are some of the cheaper pens that I used on a previous sheet of Tomoe River paper. It's not just the fountain pens I used for this review that make the paper seem smooth. Other than the permanent marker, there is no bleed through at all on this paper. I think everyone should at the very least have a chance to try this paper. It's very different from Clairefontaine in a good way. The closest thing that I have ever encountered to this paper are some old memo pads from my High School, which the librarians were kind enough to give me.
  10. For those of you who, like me, have been hoping Levenger would offer options for A4 and A5 size notebooks, they now do! Say hello to the Circa Universal Notebook and the accompanying Circa Universal Desk Punch They also have several Circa paper options in A4 and A5, so it looks like Levenger is looking to get more into the international market.. For now they only offer the notebook in black leather, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed that they'll start offering it in a nice bold color soon too. Not affiliated with Levenger, just a European gal currently living in California who's been drooling over the Circa notebooks, but refusing to spend that kind of money if I can't use it when I leave the US in a few years. (Just in case you're wondering: junior size notebooks can accommodate A5 size paper, but letter size notebooks cannot accommodate A4 size paper.)
  11. One of the great disappointments is finding a properly bound notebook as well as loose blank paper to suit my needs, with the following specifications: Notebook Properly bound and NOT spiral spineA4 size (8.3in × 11.7in.)Completely resistant to wet flex nibsNo showthrough, bleeding or feathering (I use flex pens!)Maximum sheets, ideally 192 sheets, or I will settle for the largest available size realisticallyAvailable and widely available, especially in Australia - but willing to buy from abroad if costs are reasonableCost-effective, but will compromise a little if worth itPaper A4 size (8.3in × 11.7in.)Competitively priced against regular printing paperCan serve well as printing paper as well as writing paperAvailable and widely available, especially in Australia In these regards I have been disappointed time and time again. Currently, a clothbound Clairefontaine is the best solution I have and an obscure paper called Nature which has gone off the market in Australia. That is where I am from; I am willing to buy stuff over the internet from overseas but within reason you know what I mean (i.e., not at a ridiculous disproportionate expense to ship)? I have been contemplating Apica but have read disappointing reviews in the regards above. See https://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/index.php/topic/106072-apica-notebooks-review/?p=2226925. jetpens.com has a variety of Japanese notebook brands with which I am unfamiliar and many are not available in A4 (8.3in × 11.7in.) size. Please advise.
