Important Information

About the ink in the bonus pen

The 3-Color Jetstream ballpoint pen contains ink that writes smoothly, but compared to other oil-based inks, it is not as strong against humidity. Depending on the conditions in which you store your book, the ink may bleed through the paper over an extended period of time. Please avoid getting your book wet or storing it in humid areas. Ink may also bleed through the paper if applied unusually thickly.

Ballpoint pen ink refills

Ink refills (model number SXR-80-05) for the JETSTREAM 3-color ballpoint pen are available for purchase in the Hobonichi Store.

Covers compatible with the Cover on Cover

The Cover on Cover has been specially measured for use on the Colors and Faux Fabric lines of thin covers. Other covers may not fit properly into the Cover on Cover. The PVC vinyl of the Cover on Cover contains plasticizer additives which may cause a reaction in the leather dye and affect the color and quality of the leather cover.
