In small print is 20 some odd other languages.
I had one sheet of Neusiedler 'Japan Post' watermark paper in my ERRS test. It was very good paper. I did not know what weight it was or anything about it.
I got out the old hammer and chisel and engraved on my pea brain.
I stopped off at the second computer shop in my village to ask what paper he had. He had a little bit...50 sheets left over from his stash. I got for €0.50.
This was 100 g color laser digital paper. It is a double sided paper.
It comes in 90, 100, 120 160, 200, 220, 250, 280 and 300.
With some Gmund paper I found some real good paper in the 150&170. The Avery 170 is ok too.
I have become a fan of heavy paper.
So I'll have to send off for a sample of each weight.
The 100 g paper is a good paper. Not perfect.
I'd buy some.
A quick scribble with 17 (not all) of my inked pens. A couple of BB's, a Lamy Joy 1.5, OB, a couple M's, OF and some F's and an EF. There was a spread of nibs from the easy full flex, maxi-semi-flex/'flexi', regular, and nail.
Inks Waterman Blue Black, Waterman SSB, Topaz, Bleu Pervenche, Lamy Blue, DA Copper brown, DA Havana, DA Yellow Ocher, Herbin Lie de The`, Cafe de Iles, Vert Empire, DA Mossgrun (spring green and needs a wet nib) and Pelikan Jade.
There may be an ink or two I missed... I was not doing a major 'test' just a quick scribble. The last time I went into detail I got no feed back so won't waste time like that again.
I examined the scribble with a 2.8x 4"x3" magnifying glass, there were a couple of inks where one could say there was the slightest of feather...or ignore. I ignored the it. If I got to look three times then that's not feathering.
There were three inks that feathered but that was because of the wide wet nibs. An Osmia BBL/OBB Pelikan Jade and the Degussa easy full flex with DA Copper Brown and Lie de The` (which came out light on this paper).
There was no to very little Bare Eye Feathering with those two inks.
Lie de The` was yes-BEF.
The wet writing Degussa easy full flex..there was minor bleeding.
There was show through but no bleeding with the other inks.
Except for a saturated ink, and the wet Degussa DA Copper brown there was good shading.
I'll be buying this or a higher weight of this paper. 100 g is good paper.
