Greetings:  I made the mistake of going into a new Michaels in Bedford, Nova Scotia.   Wandering past the discounted/clearance section I came across some pads.  The brand is Kelly Creates.  I purchased four dotted pads of 100 pages figuring if it's lousy paper, I can still use it for non-fp writing/notes.  The paper is wonderful.  I used my second wettest pen and had no bleedthrough and no feathering.   The paper is very smooth and came in dotted or plain for less than $3.50 cdn a pad.   That would have been a nice price for mediocre paper, but this stuff is as good as my Rhodia pad.



In the end only kindness matters

Thanks for the heads up! I'll stop by my local Michaels tomorrow.


Tuesday I was in Staples and breezed through their clearance section.  I picked up several packs of "Markings" 3 pack journals (5 5/8" x 3 1/2") for $1 per pack. It's made by C.R. Gibson, PA, USA


Also bought a couple "Bright Ideas" notebooks (6" x 8") for $2 each, made by Mari-Mi, China.


While I haven't written in the Bright Ideas notepad, I have used the Markings with blue ink and there was no bleed through. Both sizes of pads are lined.

Thank you.

Fountain pens are my preferred COLOR DELIVERY SYSTEM (in part because crayons melt in Las Vegas).
