Back to School 2016 for Stationery Lovers

Back to school for students who love stationery is an exciting time that means backpacks full of shiny, fresh school supplies with that brand-new stationery smell! Here are some of our favorite supplies for your stationery fix in the new school year.

Clairefontaine Side-Staple Notebook

Clairefontaine Side-Staple Notebook

Clairefontaine Notebooks

Clairefontaine notebooks rock some of the best paper in the world for writing! This paper has a super smooth coating on it that reduces writing fatigue by allowing your pen to easily glide across the page. The quality of the paper minimizes any instances of ink bleeding through or showing through the paper which allows you to write on both sides of each page. Clairefontaine notebooks are especially awesome if you like to write with a fountain pen. There’s a huge variety of notebook styles and sizes from Clairefontaine, we’ll mention a few of our favorites here and you can check out the rest yourself.

LAMY Safari Fountain Pen in Blue

LAMY Safari Fountain Pen in Blue

LAMY Safari Fountain Pens and Pelikano Fountain Pens

A fountain pen is the perfect companion to go along with your Clairefontaine notebooks. Fountain pens help with writing fatigue by reducing the friction required to write and Clairefontaine paper has a satin smooth surface to reduce the fatigue even more. If you’re going to spend a lot of time writing you may as well enjoy it! For school or college purposes we would recommend a pen that’s not too expensive that can be filled with washable blue ink cartridges (more info on that in a moment). When you’re on the go, ink cartridges are easier to use than bottled ink and both the LAMY Safari and Pelikan Pelikano have washable blue ink cartridges with a decent ink capacity: LAMY Blue ink cartridges or Pelikan Royal Blue giant ink cartridges.

Pelikan Super Pirat Ink Eradicator 

The Super Pirat Ink Eradicator can erase mistakes made when writing with royal blue fountain pen inks and then you use the blue correction tip to correct the mistake. This correction pen is a fantastic addition to your fountain pen and Clairefontaine paper. If you’re wondering how it works take a look at this blog post: What is the Pelikan Super Pirat Ink Eradicator?

Quo Vadis Academic Planners for 2016-17

Academic planners are special because their dates correspond to the school year instead of the calendar year. They begin with the month of July or August and end with the month of July in the following year. Quo Vadis offers a variety of high quality planners and covers to keep even the busiest students organized.

  • Textagenda Daily Student Planner
  • Minister Weekly Student Planner – fountain pen friendly
  • University Pocket Size Student Planner
  • Scholar Weekly Student Planner – fountain pen friendly, open format

Clairefontaine Multiple Subject Notebooks

Clairefontaine Multiple Subject Notebooks get their own mention because they accomplish more than one purpose. In addition to tabbed, different colors of paper to keep your notes on different subjects organized, they also help save on space and weight to minimize the number of supplies you need to carry with you. These multiple subject notebooks have paper with a 5mm x 5mm grid so if you happen to have small handwriting you can get a lot of notes on one page. Clairefontaine Multiple Subject Notebooks are available in small, medium and large sizes.

Uni-ball Jetstream 3 Multicolor Ballpoint Pen

If you’re not into fountain pens, check out the space saving, smooth writing Uni-ball Jetstream 3 Multicolor Ballpoint Pen. It conveniently gives you 3 choices of ink color in one pen body. The pen comes with blue, black and red ink ink cartridges with a 0.7mm tip but can be refilled with any colors you wish. The pen is available with your choice of a pink, light blue, lime green, black or transparent body.

Aston Leather or Clairefontaine Leather Pen & Pencil Cases

Carry your writing instruments in style with a leather zippered pen and pencil pouch from Aston Leather or Clairefontaine. Both cases are reasonably priced and durable enough to last for years.

7 Money Saving Fountain Pen Tips

In my world, I find that fountain pens are like potato chips – you can’t have just one! And I love all of the different flavors. After I bought just one fountain pen, a short time later I had a collection of fountain pens and it keeps growing to this day. To help you make the most of your fountain pen budget so you can add to your own personal collection, here are a few money saving tips:

  1. Refill your used ink cartridges. Bottled ink is cheaper per volume than ink in plastic cartridges. All you need is a blunt-tip needle bottle (or something similar) to rinse out your empty ink cartridges and to refill that empty cartridge with ink. It’s easy! Here are some instructions from our blog: Refill Fountain Pen Ink Cartridges with a Blunt Tip Needle Bottle.

  2. Use one fountain pen and change the nib size. Some brands sell individual nibs of different sizes for certain fountain pens. The LAMY Safari and Al-Star are a couple of popular pens that have this option. Their steel nibs can be purchased separately in the following sizes: extra fine, fine, medium, broad, left-handed, 1.1mm, 1.5mm and 1.9mm. Here’s an example: If you usually write with a fine nib LAMY Safari, but every once in a while want to do some calligraphy, you can remove the fine nib and replace it with one of LAMY’s calligraphy nibs. This way you don’t have to buy a whole separate pen to do your calligraphy. Changing the steel nib on a LAMY fountain pen is easy. Here are instructions for a couple of different methods to do a nib swap: How to Replace the Nib on a LAMY Fountain Pen and How to Change the Nib on a LAMY Fountain Pen – Part 2.

    Voila! The nib has been removed from the pen

    Voila! The nib has been removed from the pen

  3. Put clear tape around the cap of inexpensive plastic fountain pens. I’ve had several plastic pen caps crack over time, and even one plastic grip cracked. Wrapping clear tape a couple times around the bottom of the open end of the cap as soon as you buy the pen can extend its life span. This also works for rollerball pens, gel pens and other writing instruments with plastic caps.
  4. Buy your fountain pen before the end of the year. Many brands increase prices at the beginning of each year so buy your classic fountain pen before then and save some money. This isn’t foolproof though – every once in awhile there will be a price decrease on certain models.

  5. Write with a steel nib instead of a gold nib. The price of gold keeps increasing over time, and this price is definitely reflected in the cost of a fountain pen with a gold nib. Pens with steel nibs are generally more economical.

  6. Use a fountain pen as a highligher pen. Get a bottle of highlighting ink for fountain pens or a bottle of light colored ink and a fountain pen with a broad or calligraphy nib and you’ll have a highlighter pen that will last for years!

  7. If you’ve got some extra bottles of fountain pen ink in bright colors sitting around the house, you can use this ink to recharge your highlighter pens or felt-tip markers. Check out these simple instructions: D.I.Y. Highlighter Recharging.

Staedtler Triplus Fineliners Review

Staedtler Triplus Fineliners are definitely on my list of favorite writing tools! I enjoy using these vibrantly colored fine tip pens for everyday handwriting, doodling, marking up my paper planner or relaxing with my Clairefontaine coloring book for grownups.

Triplus Fineliners are porous point pens with a superfine tip that’s metal clad to help the tip maintain its shape. The 0.3mm tip is finer than your average felt-tip pen which makes them ideal for small handwriting, detailed and precise drawing or for coloring in small spaces.

These pens have what is called a Dry Safe feature: they can be left uncapped for days without drying up (Test ISO 554 – except neon colors). We did our own test of this ability and you can read about the results here: Staedtler Pens Dry Safe Feature Test. Of course, for best results, we do recommend putting the cap back on your pens after you’re finished if you can remember to do it.

Staedtler Triplus Fineliner

The long slender barrel of Triplus Fineliner pens has a triangular shape for a comfortable and ergonomic writing experience. The grey colored barrel is made of durable poly propylene and since it’s triangular it won’t roll off your desk. It has a plastic snap-on cap that matches the color of the ink inside the pen. The cap can easily post on the top of the pen and since the cap is light-weight it won’t throw off the balance of the pen while you’re writing. The cap does have a clip that’s about 1 1/2″ in length. Fineliners are about 6 3/8″ long when capped, 6″ long when uncapped and 7″ long when the cap is posted on the end.

Staedtler Triplus Fineliners

Staedtler Triplus Fineliners have water-based ink that can be washed out of many types of fabric which means they are not waterproof or water-resistant. The pens are not refillable. They are airplane safe: automatic pressure equalization prevents the pens from leaking on board aircraft.  From my own experience, the ink does not feather or bleed through most kinds of paper. The ink dries quickly so even though I’m a lefty I don’t smear it much.

If you buy them in a set of four, six, ten or twenty, Triplus Fineliners come in a plastic storage case that can stand up when it’s open so that you conveniently have your pens both organized and within easy reach.

As of writing this blog post, there are around 30 of these pens that are available as single colors: yellow (1), red (2), magenta (20), light carmine (21), bordeaux (23), tuscan red (260), carmine (29), blue (3), light blue (30), aqua blue (34), cyan (37), orange (4), peach (43), green (5), willow green (51), lime green (53), french green (54), green earth (55), olive green (57), violet (6), dark mauve (61), lavender (62), delft blue (63), mauve (69), brown (7), van dyke brown (76), warm sepia (77), grey (8), silver grey (82) and black (9).

Top 5 School Supplies For 2015

A new school year is right around the corner! My favorite memory of going back to school was getting all of the fresh, new stationery supplies needed to prepare for the upcoming year. I was particularly fond of any new art supplies such as pencils with a variety of graphite, paints and sketchbooks. Whether or not you feel it’s old-fashioned, using paper and pen to take handwritten notes has proven to help students learn more than if they type their notes on laptops so be sure to stock up on writing supplies for top school performance! Here are our top 5 stationery choices for back to school 2015:

Clairefontaine Twinbook

4 Ways to Use Bottled Ink in a Kaweco Sport Pen

The Kaweco Sport Fountain Pen and Ink Roller are handy pocket-size pens that both use short standard universal fountain pen ink cartridges. The Kaweco Sport pen barrel is too short for a regular ink converter, so if you want to switch from ink cartridges to bottled ink how can this be done? We can think of 4 methods of doing this:

1) Refill your empty ink cartridges with a blunt-tip needle bottle. We’ve got some instructions on how to do this in a previous blog post: Refill Fountain Pen Ink Cartridges with a Blunt Tip Needle Bottle. The needle bottle method is the easiest in my opinion and is also my personal favorite.

2) Try a Monteverde Mini Standard Ink Converter. This method works pretty well for using bottled ink, but there are a couple of quirky things that should be mentioned. First of all, the Monteverde Mini Converter does not hold very much ink – in fact it holds less ink than a standard ink cartridge. Secondly, the bottom of the mini converter (near the end that attaches to the pen) may need to be wrapped once or twice with clear tape before you put it in your Kaweco so that it stays securely attached to the pen.

3) Use a Kaweco Squeeze Converter for Sport Series Fountain Pens. If you can get your hands on this Kaweco Squeeze Converter, you’ll find that it only works with newer versions of the Kaweco Sport Fountain Pen. It is NOT compatible with the current version (as of 03-10-15) of the Kaweco Ink Roller or some older models of the Kaweco Sport Fountain Pen. This converter works best when it is filled with a syringe or blunt-tip needle bottle.

4) Convert your Kaweco Sport into an eye-dropper fill pen. We’ve got instructions how to do this here: Pen Modification – Convert into Eyedropper Fill. Of any of the 4 methods of using bottled fountain pen ink that we discuss in this blog post, eye-dropper fill allows for the highest ink capacity. The eye-dropper fill method is only suitable for pens with plastic barrels, such as the Kaweco Sport Ice or Classic. (It is NOT suitable for pens with metal barrels such as the Kaweco AL Sport or pens with small holes anywhere in the barrel.) Before you try an eye-dropper conversion, we recommend reading Eyedropper Fountain Pen Pros and Cons.

Which Gray Fountain Pen Ink Looks the Most Like a Pencil?

If you’d rather write with a fountain pen, but want your writing to look like it was done with a pencil, which gray fountain pen ink should you choose? Pencil lead varies in width and softness/hardness making your writing appear darker or lighter in color. Also the kind of paper you’re writing on and how hard you press down on the pencil can influence the appearance of the line that is produced. Fountain pen ink is similar – the results vary depending on the width of the fountain pen nib and the paper you are writing on.

Writing done with a variety of pencils

The color of writing produced by pencil in our test turned out to be a warm shade of gray. Two fountain pen inks that are also warm shades of gray are Pilot Iroshizuku Fountain Pen Ink Kiri-same Autumn Shower/Scotch Mist and Noodler’s Ink Lexington Gray. Lexington Gray is a dark shade of warm gray and Scotch Mist is a medium shade.

Three other gray inks that are cool shades of gray are: J. Herbin Gris NuageOMAS Gray Fountain Pen Ink and Pilot Iroshizuku Fuyu-syogun Old Man Winter/Rigor of Winter. When placed right next to writing done in pencil these inks have more of a “silvery” appearance (they are not actually metallic) because graphite pencil lead produces a warmer color of writing. On their own, away from any actual pencil, these inks still do have a pencil-y appearance.

Vintage Pens Discovery!

Vintage Pens

Vintage Pens

While travelling this summer, I came across a stash of vintage pens that my grandparents used to write with. Mostly ballpoint pens, a five mechanical pencils and a three non-functioning fountain pens. Some of the more interesting items are: Eclipse Hooded Knight Pencil, Waterman Skywriter Pencil, International Harvester Company of Canada Parker Pencil, WA Sheaffer Fineliner ballpoint, “The Parker Mystery Shopper” ballpoint pen, Eversharp red plastic ballpoint pen and an Airway Motel Great Falls pen (still exists, but doesn’t exactly look five-star). The fountain pens include an Eclipse Hooded Knight and a couple of Waterman’s, one of which says “Made in Canada.”

Any ideas from you pen geeks or artists out there as to what to do with these nostalgic writing instruments? Could they be re-purposed into some kind of funky art sculpture? Made into an attractive display? Put into a shadow-box frame? Sold to fund my first multi-million dollar mansion (Ha! I wish)? Please feel free to share your creative ideas!

5 Eco-Friendly Supplies for Back to School

1. Clairefontaine Notebooks

Clairefontaine has been making paper in France since 1858 and they are committed to controlling the environmental impact of their manufacturing process. They also happen to make notebooks in all sorts of formats that are great for school!

  • This paper is made from materials sourced from certified sustainable forests.
  • Clairefontaine recycles water, and when it leaves their paper mill this water is cleaner than when it arrived.
  • Their paper is chlorine-free.
  • Natural water-based vegetable oil pigment ink is used in printing.
  • Clairefontaine supplies 80% of their own energy needs.
  • They practice recycling and waste reduction.

2. Fountain Pen & Ink

Just how many disposable pens does one student use throughout their entire time spent in school? How about a multitude of students? It’s hard to even imagine the quantity of plastic pens tossed into the trash. Switch to a good fountain pen and you’ve got a pen that can last a lifetime! If you fill your fountain pen with bottled fountain pen ink, you’ll eliminate the need to throw away empty plastic ink cartridges refills. To use bottled ink you’ll want to be sure you have an ink converter or a piston-fill (or similar) fountain pen. Filling a fountain pen with bottled ink while you’re on the road or at school can be a little bit tricky, so I carry 2 fountain pens loaded with ink with me on those intense note-taking days.

3. Refillable Highlighters

Highlighters are another plastic writing tool that usually get tossed in the trash when they’re dried up. Take another step to help ease the strain on the environment by using refillable highlighters. There are many refillable highlighter options you’ve probably never thought of.

4. Book Darts

Book Darts are paper-thin metal line-markers that slide onto the page of a book and are used as place-finders for facts, quotes, key points and passages that you want to refer to later. They do not stain or damage paper and eliminate the need to highlight, underline, bend page corners or use paper clips or sticky notes. These light-weight metal darts can be reused over and over again for a lifetime. You don’t have to know all the answers, just where to find them!

5. Quo Vadis Academic Planner

What makes Quo Vadis academic planners different than other academic planners? They are full of earth-friendly Clairefontaine paper and most of them have covers that can be refilled every year with a new calendar insert. In addition, your fountain pen will write amazingly well on super-smooth 90g Clairefontaine paper. Academic planners are the must have tool to juggle a busy class schedule.
