Stationery, Ordering etc

I hate etsy and sites like it so I’m using this site to sell my “fountain friendly” stationery. Below you’ll find directions to order, how it’s made, and many of my designs.  Be sure to check out subsequent posts as they will include designs not here as I create more.

Ordering/Questions: email your selection and US address to FountainPensInk@gmail.com.  Watch for an email from me with payment instructions (paypal only except by special arrangement) and confirmation of your order, also I may have questions for you.  Please answer any emails quickly to speed your order along.  Use a subject line of “Stationery Order/questions” please

Item Names: Just hover over/click the image and it’ll come up for you.

How it’s made: Designs are all hand made (no computers) and then copied onto fountian friendly paper.  I rely heavily on paper craft techniques.

Sizes: Large the sheet will be just under 8.5 x 11, Small will have another smaller sized sheet.  Writing area varies with designs but is rarely less then a5 and usually fills a good portion of a Large sheet.  All sheets will mail easily in a Legal/#10 envelope.

Upside down?  I’m still learning to use my machine, some designs may be upside down.. my bad.

  1. How to make a dimensional envelope in 2 hours. Initial investment in tools and supplies approximately 40 to $50 on Amazon. Additional cost per envelope will be about $2 to make each one assuming no errors causing you to waste materials.

    The know includes full directions and names all items I use for making envelopes and address areas plus double layer image.

    If it’s too much work contact me to order. these start at $3 each or $10 for $25 with a handling time of 2 through 6 weeks. These are great for thank you notes and invitations and I make them in a5, #10, or 5 by 7 inch. A #10 dimensional envelope will weigh 1 oz with nothing in it so do expect to use additional postage however these do meet USPS standards for first class and first class international mail.

Why Fountain Friendly Stationery is here…

Months and months ago I was whining (a lot) that I could not afford to buy the 100+ sheets of the only Fountain Friendly decorative stationery I had discovered for sale in North America… I’d need 100 sheets or more a month to keep up with my Pen Pal habit and the lovely sheets were featured in the too small A5 10-20sheet sets. with too high of a price tag with shipping for the likes of me.

So I had to handle my needs for myself and started to play around with lots of brands of copy paper to find the fountain friendly yet light weight offerings (I discovered a nice coated offering made of environmentally sound Sugarcane and Claiefontain’s luxurious A4 paper (sold only in Europe) called Clairmail which is my FAVORITE Fountain Paper EVER!!) And to make my letters more visually delighting for my pen pals I forced myself to figure out lots of ways to decorate a page even though I can’t draw at all and also don’design on a computer.

Within a few months I was getting asked where I had bought my “unique paper” because my friends wanted to check it out for themselves.

Sooooo… long story short, I guess I’m not the only one who wants Fountain Friendly Decorative Stationery cheap enough to supply enough paper to supply enough that I could write with as much of it as I want to!

I make the smallest of profits on these sets because of the the huge amount of ink I’m using and the cost of shipping Clairmail reams to myself from Germany (worth it!)… I don’t mind that I don’t make much though, because I just want every fountain fan pen pal to be excited about their paper and envelopes every time they sit to write a letter!!!
