Sheet Count: 45
Paper Weight: 100 gsm
Price: $24.47USD (ON SALE!)
Where to buy: NoteMaker
The paper inside is gorgeous - clean, white, with only that palm leaf on top. Each sheet is watermarked with le Typographe. The pad is glued at the top and backed with black card stock.
The pages tear easily from the glue, without ripping or tearing. I really like this because with some other glue-bound notepads, the glue has leached on to the pages and tears it when I try to remove them, or they just tear anyway.
Ok, I didn't want to waste this gorgeous 100 gsm paper by using ballpoints on it. It's definitely made for fountain pens.
- Fountain pen friendly.
- No feathering, little show through, no bleed through.
- Shading and sheens show up well.
- Elegant correspondence paper.
- Clean, pristine paper.
- 100 gsm paper.
- Watch for smudging with wet nibs.
- Treat notepad with care so it doesn't get dog-eared and bent!
I think this is a beautiful pad for writing letters - it's special, elegant, classy, and a pleasure to write on. The paper performs really well with fountain pens and ink looks really lovely on the paper. I very much enjoy this pad. I'd love to try this out in a smaller size (such as A5 - my preferred size)!
