Ditto on the Staples' paper. I will post a copy of my writing samples - different pens, nibs and inks in the paper & para... section tonight.
Quick summary of the above pen/ink experience - no real feathering and bleed though only with broader nibs and when doing a little "flexing". My preferences go toward fine and extra fine nibs so no problem is anticipated.
I did buy an ARC paper punch because I did not want to be held financial hostage to purchasing Staples/prepunched paper. I got that at a 15% discount and used some rewards money.
I am using the punch to re-use my 3 hole dividers rather than buy new ones. It's cheaper of course, greener and it works well (make sure the new holes are aligned properly).
I even ran of some weekly blank pages from Outlook, punched them and inserted them ito the binder so I can start using it now rather that wait until the 2013 calendar kicks in.

Different inks and different pens/nibs used - (usually identified) to show any feathering or bleed-through.
I hope Martha uses the same paper. If so, it worked well for me. Note: I usually use fine and extra-fine nibs. If not, I like some finer italic and flex nibs - new or vintage.
