Hi, has anyone had any experience with any paper rolls that are bleedproof. I was looking for a good paper roll for practice that's extremely smooth (like tracing paper) and bleedproof for very wet pens. I was looking at drafting paper that architects use but they seem to be too see through. My next option was coated inkjet paper, but apparently its not possible to write on them due to the coating T.T Anybody have any suggestions? And yes it has to be a roll (I work very big), and not too expensive (water colour paper rolls are out of the question ) And if you're wondering, I don't only use fountain pens on it, I use large italic dip nibs too Thanks
ptrcao posted a topic in Paper and Pen ParaphernaliaOne of the great disappointments is finding a properly bound notebook as well as loose blank paper to suit my needs, with the following specifications: Notebook Properly bound and NOT spiral spineA4 size (8.3in × 11.7in.)Completely resistant to wet flex nibsNo showthrough, bleeding or feathering (I use flex pens!)Maximum sheets, ideally 192 sheets, or I will settle for the largest available size realisticallyAvailable and widely available, especially in Australia - but willing to buy from abroad if costs are reasonableCost-effective, but will compromise a little if worth itPaper A4 size (8.3in × 11.7in.)Competitively priced against regular printing paperCan serve well as printing paper as well as writing paperAvailable and widely available, especially in Australia In these regards I have been disappointed time and time again. Currently, a clothbound Clairefontaine is the best solution I have and an obscure paper called Nature which has gone off the market in Australia. That is where I am from; I am willing to buy stuff over the internet from overseas but within reason you know what I mean (i.e., not at a ridiculous disproportionate expense to ship)? I have been contemplating Apica but have read disappointing reviews in the regards above. See https://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/index.php/topic/106072-apica-notebooks-review/?p=2226925. jetpens.com has a variety of Japanese notebook brands with which I am unfamiliar and many are not available in A4 (8.3in × 11.7in.) size. Please advise.
