If Moleskine is a notebook with European aspirations, then Field Notes is its polar opposite -- a product with no pretensions and a quintessentially American appeal. Founded just five years ago, the company was born as a collaboration between Portland-based Draplin Design Co. and Chicago-native Coudal Partners. From the beginning, Field Notes saw their notebooks as “a true authentic American brand”, and “equally as attractive to a coffee-swirling hipster in Brooklyn as it is to a beer-swilling mammal killer in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.”

Please see our Fountain Pen Paper Recommendations article for an updated list of our favorite paper for fountain pen use!

Using a fountain pen can be a wonderful experience. Fountain pens naturally require little to no pressure to write with, and can literally glide across pages of the right paper. Believe it or not, there is such a thing as fountain-pen-compatible paper.

Among the many notebooks and journals available at JetPens, I’ve listed a few of my personal favorites that perform beautifully with fountain pen ink.

Maruman Mnemosyne Notebooks

My everyday go-to notebooks are found in the Maruman Mnemosyne line (named after the Greek goddess for memory). Available in a wide variety of versatile sizes and formats, the Maruman Mnemosyne notebooks contain a thick, creamy paper that has a smooth surface. Blank, lined, and graph pages are offered, and this paper provides a wonderful writing experience for fountain pens, as well as other pen types.

This product has been discontinued. Check out our other memo pads and notebooks here!

JetPens now has our very own ScoutBooks Notebook! Appropriately titled "Pentown", this notebook features a custom designed cover, highlighted by Jet-Do cruising high above a pen-dotted skyline and through the paper clip clouds.

Each eco-friendly notebook is constructed from 100% recycled materials and vegetable-based inks. The inside paper is acid-free, archival, and features a unique grid pattern. Did I mention it is made in the USA? Yes, that too.

This was a very fun project to be a part of and we are all very excited to see what is next!
