In 2020, Mitsubishi Paper Mills Ltd. and Yamamoto Paper embarked on the joint development of a new brand of paper. At their project launch meeting on February 4 at the Mitsubishi Paper Takasago Mill, Taizo Yamamoto (Yamamoto Paper) proposed the creation of Bank Paper Takasago Premium. He set the following five goals for this new paper: (1) To pursue a writing paper that is suitable for fountain pens, (2) with a silky surface (smoothness), (3) that enhances ink shading, (4) that produces accurate color rendition (brightness), and (5) that has quick dry times to be suitable for note-taking. From the perspective of paper making, many of these features conflict with each outer. For instance, paper that absorbs ink slowly produces greater shading, but is not suitable for use as a notebook because it smears. However, the development team at the Takasago Paper Plant managed to overcome these challenges by finely adjusting the raw ingredients, the sizing materials, and the press machinery. After several series of trials, Bank Paper Takasago Premium was finally produced by Takasago Unit No. 4 on September 8, 2020. As a sign of meeting Mitsubishi Paper's high quality standards, the paper bears the "THREE DIAMONDS" watermark, a watermark that is awarded only to Mitsubishi's highest quality papers.

Yamamoto Paper’s WRITING PAD series is a collection of writing pads that let you enjoy the textures and writing experiences of various types of paper. The outbreak of the global COVID-19 pandemic has brought about major changes in the social infrastructure across a wide spectrum of fields. The paper industry has also been greatly affected by this outbreak, with an accelerating trend to digitize traditional paper-based workflows to support remote workers hitting them particularly hard. Up until these times, Japanese paper manufacturers have strived to offer a wide variety of products to meet every customer’s specific needs, tweaking formulations based on regional needs or for very particular usage scenarios. As a result, Japanese paper manufacturers have managed to produce a vast breadth of paper varieties that are unmatched in any other part of the world. Unfortunately though, the pandemic has put these paper manufacturers in a severe financial strain, forcing them to find ways to cut costs for survival. The consolidation of product offerings has been accelerated and less profitable paper varieties are rapidly being phased out. In order to preserve the obscure gems of writing papers that are on the brink of possible extinction, Yamamoto Paper has curated our favorite writing papers and turned them into writing pads your enjoyment. We hope you will enjoy the wonderful feeling of writing on these papers as it may only be a matter of time before they disappear forever!
