Pen Test!

Hello, #hemlockandoakers! 

As a fellow planner addict, paper has always been a big point for me. Paper should be sustainable and not bleed through when we want to be creative, right? 

I decided to opt for thick, smooth, bright paper that allows colourful Mildliners and Tombow art pens to shine. The thing I dislike about off-white paper is how it can 'muddy' the colours. 

These are the current specifications:

  • 80LB/120 GSM weight 
  • Ultra-smooth finish
  • 96 brightness, a brilliant true-white shade
  • Sustainable Forestry Initiative® (SFI®) Certified Sourcing
  • Made with Total Chlorine Free (TCF) and Elemental Chlorine Free (ECF) virgin fiber content
  • Manufactured under alkaline (acid-free) conditions for increased longevity and performance
  • Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) certified by NEPCon, a partner of the Rainforest Alliance

I'm happy to report that several people have told me that the paper is 100% fountain-pen friendly. 

Above is Katie Merrill's pen test from Grow Your Oaks! I have to admit, I was kind of surprised the felt tip sharpie did so well. Her blog post says: 

"PEN TEST. First image is all the pens I used, the second image shows the ghosting on the quote page behind it. Notice how little the felt tip sharpie bleeds through. Amazing!!"

More tests to come soon!
