What can I do with Idae and what I can’t do?
Use Idae as a normal notebook but take care of it as it isn’t!
Do everything you do with paper but image doing it in different condition.
The special paper used doesn’t fear water or stress and it will not tear apart: the sketches are permanent; but it CAN be perforated or cut with scissors. Water or normal conditions of working doesn’t erase your notes but special mix of conditions, heavy durable stress or chemicals can alter what you have written as normally happens on paper.
The best performance is obtained writing on Idae when it’s dry, but, according with the limits of the writing instrument, you can write when Idae is wet or even submerged underwater.
The front cove deteriorates and fades with time, but it is normal, Idae will still protect you notes inside.
