On Point With Go Pens #100

On Point

What type of paper is best for fountain pens?

Steer clear of absorbent, fibrous, toothy type papers – these will clog your nib and suck all the ink out of your pen, not to mention feather and bleed through wildly! The paper weight doesn’t necessarily guarantee fountain pen friendliness, but papers like Rhodia, Clairefontaine, Life Stationery, Apica, Tomoe River, and G. Lalo are quite fountain pen friendly and enjoyable to use.
