Hi all, today I want to share with you a review of HP Inkjet Paper 24lb (HPB1124). I bought them last year from Staples when they were on sale ($8.99 USD).

Advantages:

-You can print lines, grid, dot grid, or leave the paper blank.

-There are no any visible feathering that I see.

 

Disadvantages:

-It is blank, but again, you can print your preferred format on the paper.

-The paper gives you little to no shading. (I used Diamine Syrah, Noodler's Kiowa Pecan, and Diamine Sherwood Green.)

-There are some slight bleedthrough/heavy show-through with the flex writing and wetter ink.

 

Things to be aware of:

-Ink generally dries in less than 20 seconds using a fine nib.

-It is US letter sized.

-I am pretty sure they come in reams (500 sheets). 

 

However, the pens that I have used mostly have fine nibs, so I would suggest using heavier paper if you use wetter or broader nibs, since I am not sure if they will perform equally well on this 24lb paper.

 

You can find them on Amazon. They are currently $9.94 USD for 500 sheets.

Thanks for reading,

Sofia

Could CHP1825 be its A4 equivalent?

Thank you for this review, very interesting.

How would you rate the smoothness of this paper?

 

To me, it feels (very) slightly smoother normal computer paper (20lb). It is thicker and less flimsy than 20lb paper I would say? 

 

Could CHP1825 be its A4 equivalent?

 
I would not be surprised if it were. It seems only normal for HP to release a different sized version in other regions. It's good paper.
HPB1124 has a US brightness rating of 97 (108 International brightness rating). You could compare if you have CHP1825 available.

hank you for this review, very interesting.

To me, it feels like normal computer paper (20lb), but with thicker paper. It is similar to Fabriano (85 gsm) if you have had any experience with it.
