Recently a reader emailed us to ask which pens work best on the various weights of paper in Quo Vadis planners.
All Quo Vadis planners use Clairefontaine paper, but the paper is of different weights (thickness) in different planners.
For example in our pocket size Space 17, the paper is 55gsm to keep the planner thin and lightweight.
In general we recommend our planners with 90gsm paper (which you can see here) for fountain pen use, but that doesn’t necessarily mean the planners with thinner paper can’t be used with fountain pens. Thinner nibs and not-so-wet inks might work fine.
Other pens work well on the thinner paper too. You will probably see the writing from the back side of the page, but with the right pens there should be no bleed-through (where the ink blots through to the opposite side of the page) or feathering (where the ink “feathers” out from the line of writing causing the line to look blurry).
Which pens do you prefer to use on the various weights of paper in your Quo Vadis planners? Our reader is looking for pen recommendations in particular for the Textagenda, Scholar and Minister planners. She wants to know if anyone has used Papermate Flair, Sharpie pens, ballpoint, or Energel 0.7 pens on these papers.
Thanks for any recommendations!
