Is My Recycled Paper Fountain Pen Friendly?

Do you like to use fountain pens in your journals?  I'm often asked if the recycled paper I use for the pages in my notebooks is OK for fountain pens. And the answer is YES!

The paper (especially the white recycled paper) behaves quite nicely with fountain pens, with very little feathering of the ink or scratching of the nib. Of course, there are many different pens out there and some will perform better than others on different media, but I have many customers who are happily using fountain pens in their DYANI / Little Deer Studio books. 

But don't just take my word for it.  One of my customers shared his experience on Instagram...
