Introducing Filofax Large Notebooks!

Sometimes working with a traditional notebook can be frustrating. Taking notes, to-dos, and action steps as you go from one meeting to another, or from work to home, makes for a disorganized notebook full of ideas out of context.

We've been carrying Filofax notebooks since the Spring, and we're now excited to add their large size notebooks to our lineup at GouletPens.com.

Maruman Mnemosyne Notebook Overview

 We're pretty picky when it comes to paper around here at GouletPens.com, so when we pick up a new line of notebooks it has to be pretty exciting for us to go for it. Maruman Mnemosyne fits that bill for us. Maruman is a Japanese paper company that has several lines of notebooks, one of which is this Mnemosyne, named after the Greek goddess of memory. What's usually the big hangup with notebooks is the paper quality, because if you are primarily a fountain pen user like we are here, you need something fairly ink-resistant so you don't end [...]

Tomoe River Paper: First Impressions

Our customers have been asking for a while now whether we would ever be carrying Tomoe River paper products. And finally, we can answer in the affirmative: yes! Imported from Japan, Tomoe River combines two qualities that many are seeking out in prospective paper -- it's both fountain pen friendly and remarkably thin at 52gsm. When our Goulet Pen Company team members took it for a test drive, they also discovered a number of other qualities about the paper, from its sleekness and smoothness to its transparent look and lightweight feel. We're currently carrying Tomoe River as tablets and loose [...]

Filofax Notebooks Review

Video Timestamps: Backstory - (0:10) Sizes and Cost – (1:25) Color Options - (1:55) Features - (2:11) Extra Features - (3:23) Refills - (6:07) Writing Test – (7:46) Notebook Comparisons - (12:35) Filofax is a brand that's been on my radar for a while because they're distributed in the United States by the same company that distributes Lamy. Filofax is really known with those who are big into planners, which isn't really my scene so much. However, they've come out with a brand-new (non-planner) notebook that I think is pretty exciting. It has some features that are really unique, and [...]
