Daily life is full of all kinds of things that can make people invest in research. What Research NOTES wants to convey is a kind of "Explore more" spirit, which is a notebook developed to help various kinds of exploration and research in life. The Research Notes series is designed for various records and research institutes in daily life, such as cooking research, film research, coffee research, travel records and so on. Therefore, the inner pages used have a certain degree of water resistance, and the paper is acid-free, strong and not easy to tear, even if it is wet. Writing with a pen is not easy to faint or even penetrate the back. Applicable to most writing instruments or drawing tools. (The water-resistant paper will be introduced in more detail below) The inner pages are all 48 pages, thread-bound, the cover pattern is made by pressing, the paper used: white, light brown, there are 4 kinds of inner pages: Horizontal line/white paper The line spacing is 6.5mm, and both Chinese and English are suitable for writing. The horizontal line ink is the fine dots arranged in a continuous line, and the stroke will not be interrupted by the ink when writing. Cover design theme: Paper and sky, Graphic inspired by MC Escher Dot/white paper The dot dot inner page is a newly added specification. The inner page grid dot is the "Precise Dot Grid System" developed by us. All grid dots are small crosses, allowing you to draw lines more accurately. It is accurate, and the cross will blend into the drawn line, seemingly integrated. Blank/white paper Blank/beige paper RN water-resistant paper characteristics: it has the writing feeling of paper and is water-resistant During the research, because of the need to deal with various usage situations-such as writing recipes in a kitchen that is prone to getting wet, comparing coffee liquid spilled accidentally when drinking various kinds of coffee, and a sudden rain when recording ecology outdoors, so a A very special water-resistant paper is used as the inner page. Research Notes (hereinafter referred to as RN) is different from other similar products. Although there are already waterproof notebooks on the market, for us, its plastic-like inner page material and the feeling that it is too smooth to control the pen when writing does not provide us with a good writing experience. If you use a ball pen, when you close the notebook and leave it for a while, the handwriting will "transfer" to the opposite page, causing difficulty in reading. Some waterproof paper has improved the material to make it more like paper to write, but this paper cannot be written with water-based ink, so fountain pens, water-based signature pens, etc. cannot be used. The optional pen papers are pencils and atoms. The pen also cannot allow users to enjoy writing. RN's water-resistant paper has the writing feel of paper. What is the definition of water resistance and waterproofing? We distinguish it this way: waterproof paper will not absorb water even if it encounters water, so it can completely shake the liquid on the paper. Water-resistant paper will absorb water, but only the surface will get wet when exposed to water, and the whole sheet will not be soaked, and it will not tear even if it is wet. Even if it is exposed to water, there is no need to worry about damage. Because only the surface layer is wet, the drying time is shortened a lot. Although the paper will curl a little after drying, it can be flattened after a single fold. Five characteristics of RN water resistant models: Anyone who has a certain knowledge of paper knows that the above conditions cannot be met at the same time, because some of these characteristics are even contradictory. However, the paper used in RN water-resistant notebooks broke the general impression, making it the world's first notebook with the above five characteristics: Have a certain degree of water resistance Be able to use all kinds of writing tools With the sense of writing on paper The paper must have strength and tear resistance Not easy to smudge, hardly penetrate Below we have compiled a table to let you understand the characteristics of the same type of paper on the market: (◉: Best, ◯: Moderate, ▵: Normal) Writing instruments that can be used for RN water-resistant models: any writing instrument can be used Both RN paper is also suitable for pen writing. It has the same characteristics as high-grade writing paper that it is not easy to faint, but it is very powerful in that it does not show through. We have tested it with the most serious oil-based marker that is transparent, and RN water-resistant paper can also be carried, and no penetration is found. (Figure 8) It can use any writing tool. We even use it to paint watercolors, and no paper that claims to be waterproof/water resistant can do such a demonstration. In practical applications, as long as you choose a waterproof pen ink, after writing with a pen, when the ink dries, the handwriting will not be blurred when it meets water (Note: depends on the effect of the waterproof ink). What Research Notes wants to convey is a spirit of Explore more. When using RESERACH NOTES water-resistant notebooks, there will be no worries about paper and writing work. It is a notebook that can help various explorations and researches in life.
