New Notebook / Paper



Recommended Posts

Afternoon All,

 

Wondering if someone could impart some friendly advice on me.

 

I have used Black n' Red's wire booked A4 90gsm "Optik Paper" for the last 5-6 years for my day to day notes / scribbles at work etc. I probably go through a 140 page notebook every 2 months so I have quite a few of them collected on my bookshelf now.

 

Sadly it appears that they have recently changed the manufacturing process / paper finish as on my latest notebook from my recent re-stocking of new notebooks, I am getting pretty annoying feathering for the first time ever. The paper looks and feels different, but Black n' Red have this down as the "same" notepad.

 

I am using the Platinum Mixable Inks as there is a particular shade of blue I have become fond of which I mix myself, which is the blue colour in the photo. (For anyone interested it is 3 parts Aurora Blue (AB), 3 parts Aqua Blue(QB) and 1 part Silky Purple (SP).)

 

I have never had this problem on this notepad prior to the change but its incredibly annoying now especially as I keep all my filled in notebooks.

 

Would someone be able to give a bit of advice if there is anything I can do to the ink to "dry" it out a bit or if anyone could recommend a good notebook that I can use moving forward which has good quality paper as well as a cover finish (Hard back cover and wire bound).

 

Cheers

 

Mike

I guess this is a problem that plagues many manufacturers (changing of paper properties) including Leuchtturm1917.

Sorry but can not offer advice on improving the ink properties on your current set of papers (probably add more water to the ink solution?) but for book recommendation, I would say to give Maruman Mnemosyne books a try.
