One of the “next stages” of discovering fountain pens is that you realize that fountain pens don’t work the same on different kinds of paper. There’s office copy paper or school exam paper that can be too absorbent and your ink can feather and bleed all over. If you’re stuck using what you’re using, you can try a finer nib or maybe a different ink, but sometimes you just want your fountain pen ink to look like fountain pen ink.
We get asked about cheap fountain pen friendly notebooks quite often. It’s sometimes from students who are also paying tuition and textbooks and trying to get a meal in every once in a while, but it’s also from people who write a lot and maybe don’t necessarily want something expensive if they’re just scribbling or doodling or writing for fun, or maybe even just trying out fountain pen friendly paper for the first time to see if it will really make a difference (it will!). We have one customer who writes in her journal every night and then throws out her journals when she finishes them, and I’m pretty sure she’s not using Webnotebooks 🙂
