At PUNDY, we love customizing your products, and with our new Tomoe River paper notebook options, you can enjoy writing in fountain pen with no problems!
When it comes to finding paper that is fountain pen-friendly and delivers the best results every time, Tomoe River paper beats the competition. This paper originated in Japan and has become one of the most highly sought-after options for fountain pen users across the world.
The Origin of Tomoe River Paper
The Tomoegawa Paper Company was founded in 1914 in Japan – the name of the company was inspired by the Tomoegawa River that was close to where the company was located. The original Tomoe River paper was used for catalog mailings until it was discovered to be a great paper for fountain pen users.
The Tomoegawa Company is still in existence today, and one of their off-shoot companies, Sakae Technical Paper, is responsible for the distribution of Tomoe River paper.
How Tomoe River Paper Is Made
All Tomoe River Paper is made from trees that have been taken from sustainable forests, and the Tomoegawa Company invests significantly to ensure that sustainability is at the heart of everything they do.
The paper comes in both 52gsm and 68gsm, making it a thin choice that works well in notebooks. The 68gsm version is slightly more textured than the 52gsm, but both papers offer a high-quality finished when you use your fountain pen with them.
The paper is coated on both sides, which not only reduces ghosting but also provides a great surface for all types of pens and pencils. Tomoe River paper is also incredibly strong and can be hole punched, printed on, folded, and painted on in addition to writing on it.
It’s worth noting that Tomoe River paper comes in both cream and white options, allowing you to create the look you want when picking out paper colors. The white option is very bright, and the cream is slightly softer, but both options offer great results and minimize ink bleeding for fountain pen users.
The Benefits of Using Tomoe River Paper
If you are looking for a high-quality paper for your next notebook, then Tomoe River paper offers a myriad of benefits that will make your writing more fun and more precise! Some of the key benefits include:
Fountain pen friendly surfaces

It’s also worth noting that even though Tomoe River paper is easily found in A4 and A5 loose sheets, getting a notebook is slightly more difficult, making the PUNDY offering even more exciting for Tomoe Paper fans!
