Comments about Paper Store 24/7 Onion Skin White Paper - 8 1/2 x 11 in 9 lb Bond Smooth 500 per Ream:
This paper is wonderful for fountain pens. It is hard to find and it is great it is here. The finish is smooth, it doesn't bleed and makes ink pop. I wish it came in more colors. I am certain any writer or artist who needs onion skin paper will find this meets their needs beautifully.
BOTTOM LINE Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Maybe we should pitch in a buy it. The shipping is the same cost as the paper.

I don't know what you guys are talking about, but if it gives sheen, I'll take a couple of sheets if someone wants to sell me some.
Does the color of the ink stain on your fingers give others a window into the depth of your soul, or did you just forget to wear gloves?  Unknown.

This thread is amazing.  I had no idea there was such a variety of sheen out there!

Not sure if it's been mentioned yet but Montblanc Honore de Balzac exhibits quite a nice red sheen. Definitely one of my favorite inks overall, if only Montblanc could offer it as a standard option.
