The second Ikea stationery item I wanted to talk about, are these tiny Fullfolja notebooks. This pocketable notebook comes from the same product line as the rollerballs I talked about previously.
As I mentioned above, these notebooks are really small. Compared to a Field notes -already a pocket-sized notebook- they are still noticeably narrower and less tall (exact dimensions are 5 x 4 1/4 Inch). It is, on the other hand, slightly thicker than a Field notes, due to the much higher pagecount and heavier paper (100 pages of 80gsm paper compared to 48 pages of approx. 50gsm paper on the FN) The heavier paper on the Ikea notebook is already quite a good sign for fountain pen users, as heavier paper tends to mean less bleedthrough.
The white pages are marked with grey dots in a diamond pattern. The dot layout is interesting, and it takes some getting used to, but it's still nice to use. A neat little extra: all 50 sheets are perforated, so you can remove a page without messing up the complete notebook.
|Little or no bleedthrough/showthrough.|
