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.
