Fountain Pen Friendly Paper



Fountain pen ink is water based. Depending on how a particular brand of paper is made, this type of ink may feather on the surface or bleed through to the other side. Clairefontaine (the parent company of Rhodia) manufactures their own paper in France and their 80g-90g paper products are very well known for being fountain pen friendly. It is this feature that continues to attract many people to our products.

Did you come to discover Rhodia products in this way? Are you a fountain pen user?

  1. Not only a fountain pen user, but a user of OBB nibs. Your paper is the gold standard by which I judge all others.

  2. Yes, I am a fountain pen fan and that’s how I found Rhodia. Most of the fountain pen bloggers I follow often use Rhodia journals in their fountain pen reviews.

    I’ve tried and love the paper too.

  3. I first found Rhodia through its availability in Borders bookstores, and was attracted to them for the quality paper, economy, and flip cover. Living in a small town, my options for fine stationery are very limited. It wasn’t until I got into fountain pens that I thought to use them on a Rhodia pad. I was pleasantly surprised to find that other fountain pen users agree.
