We spend a lot of time discussing and blogging about fountain pens and ink. An important aspect of our hobby is finding paper suitable for fountain pen ink. What are some of the qualities of pf paper that make it fountain pen friendly? The color of the paper maybe be important depending on the color of the ink you are using. White paper is very popular because of the nice contrast of the ink against the page. The thickness of the paper is important because we don’t want feathering or spreading of the ink thru the fibers of the paper. Along with feathering, we don’t want the ink to bleed thru to the other side of the page. Drying time of the ink is important as well. As with many things we need to carefully balance these factors when selecting suitable paper. Currently I prefer Rhodia notebooks and pads, however, I do enjoy trying paper from different manufacturers. What are your thoughts on this topic? Please share with the followers of the blog.
