Hi Chum! If you can't get GE silicone, may I suggest you get any clear window & door type silicone sealant and try it out on some scrap paper? Even if it doesn't work you can still use it around the house, and it's cheap. :D

P.S. It doesn't have to be paintable, either, as far as I know...

If I remember correctly, the solvent in 100% silicone is vinegar -- that's what gives it the smell -- and that's another plus, as vinegar is non-toxic and shouldn't hurt your paper.



and no one wants to give a bloke who smells like he has a chip on his shoulder any trouble eh!

I sometimes print my own lined paper for custom book orders. That way I can match the lines to the cover. What I'd like is to get my hands on some basic loos leaf blank CF paper. Anybody out there have some?

Isn't there a A4 lined Triumphe pad?

Yes - but thats not what I mean. That has a nice cover so it is more social stationery. I mean a no frills, no cover, office style pad.


What in the world are you talking about? Ya' tear the thin cover off --voilà-- "no frills, no cover, office style pad"!

I have a coupleTriomphe A4 pads. I prefer plain paper cuz I can put the sheets in my laser printer and make any kind of ruling/guidelines/dots I desire. They also make ruled pads. As to the micro-perf vs glued argument, give me the micro-perf. While Triomphe does, indeed, offer entire stationary "sets" with all the foo-foo trimmings, their pads are jes plain ol' pads and nothing more. The cover tears off as easily as the rest of the paper sheets. Clairefontaine makes loose sheets, including ruled w/ margin. Be aware they are already punched for both 3 and 4 ring binders, so they have a lotta holes. Writer's Bloc is one of the few sellers in the US I've found that carries loose sheets and they run out for long periods. They jes got in some new stock:
