    Default MUJI paper

    Anyone here use paper from MUJI for FP writing?

    What are your experiences with them? I have found varying results - their cheaper notebooks (the 5-pack) are terrible with FP's (lots of bleed through, ghosting and feathering), but some of their higher quality, more expensive (made in JP) notebooks are much better (little feathering, no bleed through, some ghosting). Their loose-leaf papers are also ok.

    Mostly using them because I am a fan of MUJI (most of their products are good), and are relatively affordable and available.

    Yes, I have found their paper suitable. like other very thin Japanese papers that don't feather or bleed, and inexpensive enough to send them into Chapter 11.

    Agree. I have a couple of their notebooks and the paper is very fountain pen friendly.

    I actually adore Muji notebooks. I keep their spiral notebooks all around my home/office for notes and quick writing sessions. The paper is not stunning like Clairefontaine, but it is well-behaved and unobtrusive in the best sense.
