Almost by accident, I discovered that Clairefontaine Triomphe stationary has near superpowers for resisting feathering and bleedthrough. My photographer, Rebekah Goldman, and I were messing around with some 'artsy' shots trying to get a picture of ink drops coming out of the nib of a fountain pen and falling in mid-air. In doing this, we obviously ended up with a puddle of ink on the paper, which we found wasn't feathering or bleeding through at all, even with an entire pen's worth of ink on it for nearly 30 minutes at a time. It was incredible, so I wanted to replicate it in this video.
Watch as I take and basically dump a puddle of ink from my pen onto the ever-popular Clairefontaine Triomphe stationary paper and some cheap Georgia Pacific copy paper I pulled out of my printer. You will be amazed at the different reactions you'll see between the cheap paper and the Triomphe.
The full line of Clairefontaine Triomphe stationery is available at The Goulet Pen Company, as well as other fine retailers.
