Quick Assessment Of Tul Notebook


Recommended Posts

This is just a quick assessment based on only having the notebook a few days. I purchased a Tul leather notebook from Office Depot after being disappointed with a low-end Levenger (Sliver) notebook that was more expensive (too flimsy). I checked ahead of time and the spacing on the discs was the same so I can use my Levenger punch when needed.

The paper feels, to the touch, like it would be cheap and rough and tend to bleed but it is not and it does not. In the picture you can see a few inks and their nibs. If you look closely you can see some ghosting from the other side. That is the Emeraude de Chivor from that very wet Binder .9mm Oblique. None of the other nibs-ink combos did that, including the Violet Vote which is usually a wet ink on most of my papers. The paper isn’t Exaclair smooth but it is quite comfortable to write on and suits my needs for speed writing (just enough tooth to give me control, not so much as to feel scratchy).

Definitely worth trying if you want to look into a Levenger Circa alternative. And, if you just must have Circa (Circa Rhodia) paper, and already have a punch, then at least you know their disc system matches at the 8.5 x 11 size.

Thanks for recording this for posterity. Now June 2017 and I got a coupon for TUL at Office Max. Ask Google if TUL is fountain pen friendly and viola!

I'm a fan of Arc also. The average price per page that I found is $0.10 per refill page in each package. Not sure if one would consider that cheap, but I like it. I'll try out the TUL paper this weekend.

And the notebook that came out for kids this year is a great price.

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