I've recently resorted to buying pre-printed planner pages from Franklin Covey, but the layout isn't exactly what I'd like. I'd prefer to print pages I've designed myself or via the DIY Planner Dynamic Templates App. To do so, I'll need an inkjet printer paper that stands up well to fountain pen ink, is heavy enough for comfortable 2-sided use (24+ lbs.), and has a very matte (non-shiny) finish for easy reading.

What type of paper would suit this application best?

This question isn't irrelevant. A lot of productivity-minded people enjoy having hard-copy. Also, those to whom productivity is quite valuable are not apt to sign up to another SE site just to ask what paper stock should be used. This is perfectly suited to this site, even if it isn't directly relate to techniques or solutions to productivity killers. –  Huperniketes Jun 23 '11 at 0:20

I agree with Huperniketes. Upvoted question. –  Jeanne Boyarsky Jun 23 '11 at 1:58

You could also argue that poorly printed/poor quality printed pages could dissuade people from making use of their planner pages (ie if they are aesthetically unappealing). –  Amos Jun 23 '11 at 9:00
    
@Huperniketes: People consider it is irrelevant. Given that she knows what paper to look for isn't it just a matter to look into printer paper catalogs or just going out to buy the paper? Or am I missing something? :( –  Tom Wijsman Jun 23 '11 at 14:58

@Tom Sadly, fountain pen friendliness is not a trait that manufacturers normally advertise. –  HedgeMage Jun 29 '11 at 16:49
