This airmail pad is by far my favorite...it's an A5 pad where each sheet turns into an envelope.  (I already ordered one). 

The prices are high of course and they make ridiculous stuff like silk postcards for $95 a piece but they also have some nice notebooks and stationery for well under $100.

I hadn't seen this, and now I want! Please let us know how the paper behaves with pen and ink.

If it is Hermes where are the winged shoes and helmet?  I claim fake...replica Hermes, likely made in China and not even a God of herds, much less messenger.  I bet you even have to put stamps on it and even then it will just sit there until YOU move it.  Some messenger.

How do you like it? What kind of performance have you gotten with fountain pens? Thanks

I've just bought the pad, what they call the Aerogramme pad. 

Will probably start to write on it in the next couple of days. I've got the ink cartridges for the Nautilus line as well, and it should work on my Pilots. I'm just waiting to drain the ink on one of the Falcon pens that I have and then use the Hermes ink on the Hermes pad. Will report how it behaves.

I've finally started to use this Aerogramme pad and I'd say that it was probably made for ball pens rather fountain pen.


The writing part of the paper is white but has a smooth feel to it, almost like glossy printer paper. That's probably already a bad sign.


I've used Hermès' Rouge H ink in this test (don't tell them it's in a Pilot Kakuno! Medium nib by the way) and it feathers a fair bit. Not disastrously so, but noticeable. I've attached a photo of the other side of the paper, clearly showing ink seeping to the other side. 


I usually use an Avery label for the address, so it is still mail-able. 


The entire pad is quality though. To the texture of the cover, the way the paper detaches from the pad, etc. So it should, for 35+€. Too bad it is not 100% fountain pen friendly.
