eco notebooks by paperchase: a hidden gem for fountain pen lovers

Before I begin, I just want to say that this post is not sponsored and that there are no affiliate links. This post is merely one for me to share a gem of a notebook for those of you who are sick of bleeding and showthrough but also want an affordable option. 

Paperchase are great for stationery that offers quality at a reasonable price point. Having had these notebooks in my possession for a few years now, I thought I had already blogged about them but on searching through the archives, there is no evidence of this!

Miquelrius is a name not that well known in the stationery world with brands like Rhodia, Leuchtturm 1917 and Moleskine taking most of the praise for quality notebooks which take most inks well. However, it is a name synonymous with being fountain pen friendly and that's the reason why they are in my collection of notebooks and also why this blog post is here today.

Paperchase offer these notebooks under the 'Eco' range and they come in A6, A5 and A4 sizes with either ruled or squared paper. The long edges are colour coded into sections of which there are six and each page has a dedicated space for a title. I'm not sure if the brown cover ones have the same paper as I only have the black cover ones in my possession.

My experience with them is a hugely positive one: cheap notebooks with plenty of paper in each one; paper that takes fountain pen extremely well with no bleeding or show through and the covers are black plastic which helps keep them from being bashed around too much. The only complaint I have is the lack of margin but on balance with all of the other positives, that is only a minor issue and one which can be overlooked.
