My Journey To Get The Perfect Notebook (Spoiler: I Made My Own)



Recommended Posts

That sounds very nice. If you want, I can send you back a small sample of Tomoe River paper.

And, to be very honest with you, I am mostly interested in paper produced in Brazil - if, that is, it's fountain pen friendly, and lightweight.

But I did like your notebook.

You could try and buy the pads from this link and see if they ship it to you.

Although Papiamento does have a relationship with Portuguese, it's more of an ancestral one... so I am not too sure what exactly I'd be buying, if I tried. Your link sends me to a Tracing Pad - isn't that transparent paper? I can get that locally, though not from Brazil, and I have played with it, but it's not really what I'd be looking for... which would be 70 gsm writing paper that's fountain pen friendly.

Could you clarify a little?

Thanks in advance! and of course, thanks for the link. If the paper is what I'm looking for I'd take the next step and see if they'd be willing to ship me some pads...

The paper in the link is the one I used for the notebook. It is called tracing paper but it isn't transparent. I don't know why it is called that, it is thin but not transparent. Each of the products on the page are just different size pads A4, A3, A2 and so on.

Thanks for clearing that up. I will try and order a few and see what develops.

 

I am unable to buy from them. They want me to register but I cannot enter a valid CPF, whatever that is.

So that fizzled out pretty quickly. Well it was a nice try...

You could try sending an e-mail to their contact (it will be named contato) and see what they can do for you. This paper is exclusive to them so it is worth a try.

      Not sure if this has been suggested already but would a setting for localized regions or chapters in FPN be helpful? I don't know if there is a way to find local FPN members who would be nearby. I don't know if we want to be discoverable but a setting to know how many members are in 25, 50, or a 100 miles of each other might be helpful. We can create a regions specific network like Craigslist where people could use that to connect with nearby members, conduct in person sales, arrange FPN meetups

      Hi again all, I forgot to tell y'all that I made the post about Sweden ink PIF. Most have probably found it long ago, but here's a link, anyway:

      I read your blog post and all the replies with much interest. I'm a FP user in Australia. Been part of this forum for years but rarely post. I did come across your ink sharing thread and considered participation. For me it's not lack of interest but lack of time to play around with FP and inks. I'd feel bad to put my hand up for the box and just have it sit until gosh knows when...   I also think that the FP community in Australia is smaller, and I wonder how many in the community are

      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
