While computers are great and we at Pendemonium are glad you're using yours to read this, nothing tops a personal handwritten note.

Handwritten letters are saved and cherished over the years and serve as small bits of our own personal history. Email, texts - how many of those do you save for posterity? Probably not too many. Get your fountain pen inked up and start writing today.

Pendemonium strives to offer fountain pen and ink friendly stationery. The experience of a fine fountain pen gliding across a smooth piece of stationery is a thing of joy. We know some of you like a little"tooth" in your writing papers and we always make note of that in the items for sale here in our stationery aisle.

In a perfect world, every fountain pen would write equally well on every piece of paper it touches, however we do not live in a perfect world. Different pens have different flows, different inks offer up different behaviors as well. 

That combination of pen and ink may write perfectly one one type of paper and totally stall out or bleed profusely on another type.  

Be prepared to experiment with your pen, ink and paper choices - that just gives you another excuse to write with your fountain pens!

Let your fountain pen make a statement!

From time to time we find fountain pen friendly stationery and when we find it, this is where it lands!

Hope you'll check back from time to time, you just never know what might turn up here.


MM-519 $10

Mozart Loose Leaf Music Paper - Great illustration of Mozart and the Birthplace of Mozart in Salzburg Germany on the pastel blue paper band. This new old stock paper measures 8 x 10.5 inches and is three hole bunched for a notebook. As the paper wrapping band says, this is Staff-Ruled for writing music. There are 10 staffs per side, the page is ruled on both sides. There was no feathering with Our Exclusive Legal Lapis, Noodler's Black or Pelikan Blue Black, the three inks I used to test on the paper. The ink does not bleed through to the reverse side, although there is a light shadow where you can see there was writing on the other side. The package contains 20 sheets of music paper.

Sealing Wax & Seals

"The Art of Sealing a Letter"

Do not begin by thrusting the end of the wax into the flame and conveying it in a flaming spatter to your envelope. Take plenty of time and hold the wax above the flame of the candle, but not near enough to burn; a burnt wax makes a streaky seal and is hard to manage. When the wax has gradually softened, apply it with a circular movement upon the place to be sealed, rub it around and down until you have a circle of proper size and thickness and apply the seal. The result should be a clear-cut impression.

These instructions were found in a wax seal boxed set from the early 1900's.

Today, sealing wax is used by lovers of refined correspondence and those who require sealing wax for special occasions such as wedding invitations, diplomas and certificates of distinction.

PLEASE NOTE! Most sealing wax placed on the outside of an envelope will not survive the trip through the postal service's automated mail handling equipment. Faux Wax, which is flexible and used with a mini hot glue gun, has a better chance than most for arriving intact, but even this can sometimes fall off while in the postal service's hands.

Eric Shackle in Australia has written a fun and informative article, To Talk of Sealing-Wax, about sealing wax and wax seals. We thought you may enjoy reading it, too.
