Quattro 3.4" X 5.5" Lined Journal/notepad



Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

I recently bought a small notepad (3.5" x 5.5") by Quattro. They are available in blank, lined, and grid. The one I bought is lined.

Pros:

1) It is affordable. You get 80 sheets for about $4.00 USD.

2) It has pretty nice paper. It feels like HP 24lb inkjet paper.

3) It has a fairly quick dry time (less than ten seconds in Pilot Metropolitan F), which is good for short notes.

4) It has micro-perforated paper.

5) The cover seems durable.

6) They are available in blank, lined, and grid.

 

Cons:

1) As you can see in the second to last photo, the glue wore off.

2) Since the glue wore off, the cover could not lay flat.

 

Things to be aware of:

1) It is 5 mm rule. Some people may find it too small for writing.

2) You can fold the cover to the back.

3) It has some feathering with one pen (Nemosine Singularity with Noodler's Couleur Royale).

4) It has some bleed-through with one pen (Nemosine Singularity with Noodler's La Couleur Royale).

5) I saw at the art store that there are leather covers available for these notepads.

 

I do not know the exact price, but I think it is about $3.00 USD to $4.00 USD at the art store. However, on Amazon, they are currently $4.76 per pad.

Sofia, thank you for the detailed review.

Fountain pens are my preferred COLOR DELIVERY SYSTEM (in part because crayons melt in Las Vegas).

      Even so, you'd end up with a fragmented list, and it becomes an O(N²) process for each prospective requestor to check what is available: effectively recreate the list of currently active servers (without any reliable up-to-date info upfront about the inks and number of samples on offer in the thread) from the sequential list of posts, which may be spread over two or even more pages, and then query each server independently to check what is currently on offer.   It comes down to not hav

      If one wanted to do this, one could just use the "About Me" field which appears to be unlimited in size.  And if a bunch of people wanted to cooperate, the Member Title field (or signature) could be used to this end - "Ink Giver" (or some such) could be used by those with inks to give...  No software edits required.

      I suppose the update issue could be mitigated.  One would post a link in signature, to the particular part of your profile where you list the inks that you're willing to post samples to others, gratis.  But looking at profiles, I suspect that would require an edit to the board's software, potentially a nontrivial task.

      I read your idea as getting willing givers to publicly register as members of a set of heterogenous servers, in a system in which a client would explicitly select an available server from a list, to which he/she will then send a request privately and asynchronously. Request handling in the system is unmanaged, and individual requests are handled by the targeted servers completely independently on each other. I think the model is fine, although there are some operational concerns you may want to
    • Daneaxe
      First thought on the method/system of ink sharing: Think the best way, to begin with, is to follow the way of the US thread: offer up a (small) list of inks you are willing to PIF, to whoever expresses interest. Write clearly in the "mission statement" how it works, with a tiny "quid pro quo" that even a struggling student can comply with, i.e. post your opinion and a writing sample, with option of a full review if desired.   So yours truly might say: "I'm offering up samples of D
