    I Hate Dot Grid Ruling!

    Really, i can't stand it. The dots don't form a nice line on which to write. They're hard to see when writing; when drawing, they're okay. And the worst part is that most manufacturers are opting for dot grid instead of regular grid. Please stop doing that. I like regular grid paper for note-taking and even journaling. I can write on it, draw on it, and doodle when bored. I like using the grids to mark indents for note-taking, for organizing notes under headers and main subjects. Lined paper doesn't give you indent markers for subordinate notes. I may be a minority of one here, but it had to be said. I hate dot grid.
  2. Milligram has been offering its stock of black-covered Bloc Rhodia No.18 80g/m² lined (A4-sized, 7mm-ruled, with blue horizontal lines and a red vertical margin line) notepads on clearance for a week now, for A$5 each [/and/] with a “buy 3 for the price of 2” offer. The effective price is therefore A$10 for three, or $3.33 each when you buy in multiples of three on a single order, and that's if the purchaser is not eligible for any other discounts (such as the "Friends For Life" discount of 10% site-wide) that apply. I imagine it may be obstacle to some (or even most) prospective customers that the threshold for free domestic shipping on a single order is $69 (after discounts); without the FFL discount, one has to order 21 of those notepads at once to avoid the $5.99 delivery charge which would dilute the effective discount on the order, and 24 of them with the FFL discount. However, Milligram just announced today (a few hours ago) that it's offering free shipping for orders of $29 or more, for a limited time only. That means one can buy just nine of those notepads, delivery included, for a $30 outlay without the FFL discount, or get twelve notepads delivered for $36 with the FFL discount, if he/she uses an Australia delivery address. (Since Milligram delivers using Australia Post Parcel post service, Parcel Locker and Parcel Collection addresses are OK, as well as PO Boxes and physical/street addresses in Australia.) When I checked less than ten minutes ago, the maximum number of these notepads the system will accept on a single order is 426 — down from 472 three days ago — so I'll assume that's what Milligram thinks it has in stock and wants to clear. Rhodia paper fans, knock yourself out! Edit: Updated stock level
  3. I'm looking for non-feathering FP-friendly lined paper in the B5 size. (If I have to I'd take American 8.5"x11".) Over at Jetpens they have two types of Kokuyo 6mm lined loose leaf paper: the Sarasara and the Shikkari. They're both 26-hole papers and therefore use weird binders, but I'm okay with that if the paper is good. Is it? I couldn't find any information about the differences between Sarasara & Shikkari, but reviewers on the site seem to like them both with fountain pens. Does anyone know what the different types for this brand mean? And finally, what other lined loose leaf paper should I also be considering? I want to buy 50-100 pages at a time. (And I don't want to run blank paper through my printer to make my own lines.) 6mm or 7mm lined would be ideal.
  4. I bought pads from a Big Store, and they turned out to be paper towels with lines printed on them. Even so, I struggled doggedly to use them. But now I'm done, and I'm looking for something nice to write on, yet still inexpensive. Or even cheap! Does anyone know of a CHEAP, white, lined 8 1/2 x 11 top-bound pad? US sources only, please, readily available, and low-cost... as I already have pads from Levenger, Rhodia, Clairefontaine, and a few precious Staples Bagasse. And many thanks for your help!
  5. Hi Everyone, Just wanted to say that for those of you looking for quality copy/looseleaf paper the Double A paper sold in Amazon is incredibly smooth and reasonably priced (35$ per case). As a student I needed a cheap solution for looseleaf so I printed the college ruled template (found on Incompetech website) on it and you can even print and write on both sides (very little shadow)
  6. Hi guys, I'm looking for paper that is lined and could be classified as "school use". My only complain with my current composition books is that they bleed and feather the heck out of me. It didn't originally bother me, but eventually it got so bad that I went back to ballpoints for a while. Another major concern is that I'm not a fancy person, I go through paper very quickly so I don't want to get the expensive paper like Rhodia or some other fancy brand. So any suggestions?
  7. Hi all, I recently bought a small notepad (3.5" x 5.5") by Quattro. They are available in blank, lined, and grid. The one I bought is lined. http://i.imgur.com/Upipt5G.jpg http://i.imgur.com/b6ET9RA.jpghttp://i.imgur.com/LSfdhwH.jpg http://i.imgur.com/6Z3M9rV.jpghttp://i.imgur.com/lymSuPX.jpg http://i.imgur.com/324GSCZ.jpg Pros: 1) It is affordable. You get 80 sheets for about $4.00 USD. 2) It has pretty nice paper. It feels like HP 24lb inkjet paper. 3) It has a fairly quick dry time (less than ten seconds in Pilot Metropolitan F), which is good for short notes. 4) It has micro-perforated paper. 5) The cover seems durable. 6) They are available in blank, lined, and grid. Cons: 1) As you can see in the second to last photo, the glue wore off. 2) Since the glue wore off, the cover could not lay flat. Things to be aware of: 1) It is 5 mm rule. Some people may find it too small for writing. 2) You can fold the cover to the back. 3) It has some feathering with one pen (Nemosine Singularity with Noodler's Couleur Royale). 4) It has some bleed-through with one pen (Nemosine Singularity with Noodler's La Couleur Royale). 5) I saw at the art store that there are leather covers available for these notepads. I do not know the exact price, but I think it is about $3.00 USD to $4.00 USD at the art store. However, on Amazon, they are currently $4.76 per pad.

  8. There used to be a little bit of snobbishness( just from my own experience in the distant past) about using ruled paper for writing letters(this was long before the advent of computers, and email) So, I'd be really interested if anyone else had had that experience, and also what your own preference for letter writing is....lined, or unlined? I use lined in all my own writing, but feel more drawn to(no pun intended) unlined for letters, and Im not sure if that's a throwback for me, to when it was 'not the done thing'. If it is, I want to get rid of it.... Alex
  9. I picked up a small pocket notebook at a yard sale earlier this month. On the cover is: IMPERIAL NOTE BOOK Efficiency Line No. 655 I have searched and searched, and cannot find anything on this type of notebook or brand. It is 6 3/4″ x 3 3/4″, sturdy, flexible cover, 57 sheets (114 pages) with one or two pages in the front ripped off. The edges of the notebook are rounded–an elegant touch in a utilitarian notebook. The paper is ruled w/margin on top, faint blue lines and pretty heavy. It was a cream or white originally, and has a yellowish-ivory tinge now. The binding is stitched, not stapled. The paper feels good to the touch–I don’t know how old the notebook is but it is certainly ready for use.
  10. Does anyone know of lined paper that is pretty good for fountain pens, but not as expensive as Clairfontaine or Rhodia? Pretty much all of the loose-leaf paper I have found is as bad as a napkin for fountain pens feathering. I don't even use B nibs very often. I use a lot of paper, so cheaper is better. It's just for writing notes and assignments for university, so it doesn't need to look fancy or anything like that. Thanks very much for any ideas.
