  1. Does anyone own or has anyone owned these hole punchers. I just bought the Staples Arc punch. I have heard that the Levenger Circa punch punches a bigger hole, so it is easier to turn the pages when installed. Is it true that it punches a bigger hole than the Staples brand Arc puncher, or is the hole the same size? Price is not an issue. I will get whichever one functions better. Will the Levenger last a long time, or is it just an expensive piece of junk? With the Levenger Circa Leverage punch, I estimate I can fit about 10 pages to punch at once (I will use 32 lb bond / 120 gsm). With the
  2. This is an ongoing bleed-through comparison test between ten different commercially available notebooks. This test will continue as long as there is interest in it and pages remaining in the current set of test notebooks. Method This is a simple test, and will involve three steps: 1. Every time I fill a pen with ink I will write the names of the pen, nib size, and ink in ten different notebooks. 2. I will assign each entry a score indicating the severity of bleeding based upon predetermined thresholds. Absence of bleed-though is scored with a checkmark. Bonus points will be given f
  3. The case of Staples Sustainable Earth Copy Paper arrived today, so I thought I'd do a brief review. (Shipment took 3 days, over a weekend.) Weight: 20 lbs. Brightness: 92 Sheet size: 8.5"x11" Fiber: 95% sugarcane -- acid-free (the Staples online product Q&A says the other 5% is FTC certified pine) Package size: 500 sheets Case: contains 10 reams (or 5000 sheets) Origin: Argentina Where to buy: Staples Web-Only (only available by the case. Retails @ $59.99/case; currently on sale @ $36.99 per case) For unlined sugarcane (bagasse) papers, I also have OfficeMax's Sugarmade and CVS's
  4. Hello and welcome to the Quick Review of the Staples Sustainable Earth Sugarcane Paper Notebooks. As you know, Staples Sugarcane (Bagasse) paper is well known amongst fountain-pen users as an economical alternative to more pricier notebooks and papers such as Rhodia. Although by no means superior, it fulfills every criteria for general-purpose writing. Note: These notebooks were purchased from a Staples store as of April 14, 2014. http://i.imgur.com/xkfTHaj.jpg http://i.imgur.com/r45preH.jpg http://i.imgur.com/P9WEWW4.jpg http://i.imgur.com/jajrKyc.jpg http://i.imgur.com/xuCyOZ9.jpg Fo
  5. Maybe this is an old deal, but I haven't seen anyone post it yet. Staples has the Cross Bailey fountain pen online for $10.89, in chrome, blue lacquer and black lacquer barrels. All have medium nibs, it seems. Here are links: http://www.staples.com/Cross-Bailey-Fountain-Pen-Medium-Point-0-85mm-Chrome-Barrel-Black-Each/product_1104565 http://www.staples.com/Cross-Stratford-Fountain-Pen-Medium-Point-0-85mm-Blue-Lacquer-Barrel-Black-Each/product_1104553 http://www.staples.com/Cross-Stratford-Fountain-Pen-Medium-Point-0-85mm-Black-Lacquer-Barrel-Black-Each/product_1104554 I've never used a
  6. I've recently become very interested in paper and pulp industries. My endless endeavours to finding the best FP paper really has taken me all over the globe. I've come to realise that the qualities that make a paper FP friendly, normally stem from the predominant use of hardwood pulps. When I initially came to learn, that some of the papers I very much preferred, sourced their pulp from Brazil, I became somewhat concerned. I didn't want to support any industry that was destroying the majestic Amazon rainforest. Later I learnt that this pulp was coming mostly from plantation Eucalyptus, whi

    Staples Sale On Cross Baileys

    So today I was walking through my local Staples in an attempt to purchase a Pilot Metropolitan as they received a fantastic review on Goulet Pens. Well, I was unsuccessful, but found the Cross Bailey on sale for $20 (US) After doing some quick research on a friends smartphone I discovered that this pen has few reviews but the few that are available give it fantastic ratings. Upon opening, inking and writing a few lines with it, I found it silky smooth, a perfect weight, and both orange and green converter compatible. Anyone else have any experience with the Cross Bailey? Mine is the matte blac
  8. Hurray! Staples has produced their excellent Sustainable Earth sugarcane paper as graph paper now! The pads are 8 1/2 x 11 inches and have 100 sheets. They are filler paper (i.e. they are not a bound pad... the sheets are loose-leaf and without a chipboard backing). The printed lines are light tan and very unobtrusive, especially compared with other graph paper with the blue lines. The paper is fountain pen friendly, with no feathering and little to no show-through on the back side (no bleed-through, either). At least the show-through isn't bothersome enough for me to avoid writing on th
  9. This is just a heads up that Pilot Metropolitan fountain pens are on sale for $10 at Staples (online only). The sale expires July 5th or until supplies run out. They have them in black, silver and gold (medium nib). If you have a Staples Rewards card, shipping is free. If you don't have a Staples card, you can select to have it shipped to the store for free. eta correction: Staples does in fact offer more than just the black, silver and gold. It offers the animal designs, too, including purple and white.
  10. A week or two ago I bought a ream of Staples' sugarcane copy paper (20 lb./75 gsm). I tested it out with some letters to pen pals and it performed excellently. No feathering, no bleed through, and show through was minimal. I was able to write on both sides of the paper using a flex pen with Noodler's Navajo Turquoise (which usually gives me a lot more show through than it did on this paper!). I'm very happy with this purchase. Please let me know if you'd like me to upload any photos. At $8.49 for a ream of 500 sheets, it's the best, most affordable blank paper I've found yet. (Which is good

    40% Off Staples Coupon

    Staples has a 40% off coupon for office supplies (online and in-store). Good through 4/19, aka today and tomorrow. http://www.staples.com/coupons/ - Arc hole punch? - iroshizuku ink? - that $715 Delta FP?
  12. I was in my local Staples the other day and I was surprised to see some new Sheaffer No nonsense calligraphy pens in red, yellow and black. They are different from the traditional NN as these have a slanted top, an ink window to show the level of ink left in the cartridge (similar to the Lamy Safari) and a dimpled rubber grip. They come in three nib sizes: 1.1mm, 1.5mm and 1.9mm. They are $6.95. I figured those looking for cheap italic nibs and fans of the NN would be curious to know about these new Sheaffers at their local Staples. Also, they had some Sheaffer 100 ballpoints in stock too in

    Staples Adds A Few More Fps

    In recent years, The Staples in our area (in S. Central Pennsylvania) went from a nice glass-enclosed counter display of fine pens down to disposable Pilot Vectors and a rotating stand that had a few Cross FPs. I took a look today and they have added disposable Bics, another Cross or two, and three Parker Sonnets. The better pens are stored upright, nib down and posted, in a fixed stand that holds the pen in place so you can touch and feel, but keeps a buyer from handling it without assistance. Interestingly, the the tines on all the Parker nibs are curled up on the ends, like someone trie
  14. Just read the circular for the week of September 8 - 14. Staples is offering a 40% on ARC notebooks and (I think) accessories. Not sure if this offer includes the United Kingdom. See image of ad and check the Staples site for coupons or they are probably in the weekly circulars. BTW, please let me send me an PM here on FPN, know if I am violating any copyright issues by posting a copy of this ad and I will delete it if I can do so. No affiliation, just love sharing good discount news. Good luck and enjoy...
  15. I am going to go to Staples sometime this week. I noticed that they had notepads on sale. I have been writing letters to my friends, but have been using the Staples Accel notebooks. I don't want to use three hole punched paper for letters anymore. I find it very tacky and, even though I don't experience bleedthrough or feathering, I still usually only use one side especially when I want to use my Lamy Joy 1.1. Is there any heavy enough stock legal pads and decorative stationery that could be used with my Lamy Safari medium and a Lamy Joy 1.1 nib with Lamy black/blue/blue black/turquoise
  16. I'm a incoming college student who in between preparing for move in at the end of this month and sorting out the finances of college is trying to find a quality but economical way to continue using the pens I've grown so fond of. Before I would buy Staples Sustainable Earth notebooks by the cartload when on ridiculous sales but recently the quality of their notebooks have been unforgivable, even the Egypt made ones, and I'm looking for a change that would still work within the reem/10ish dollar budget. Digging around the garage I found an old binding machine, the Ibico EB-19, and thats mean

    Just My Luck....

    So today I went to my local Staples and saw something that was simply wonderful. I found on sale for $3 even, Brazilian filler paper! I bought half of the rack that was left. They were $3 for 400 sheets and I ended up buying 7 packages, totaling 2,800 pages! The stack is 8 inches tall and weighs in the neighborhood of 27-34 lbs! I had to have them double bagged. Run and see if yours has them. Mine has no feathering at all.
  18. (fiberdrunk posted that bagass is available at staples so now i'm off my tush to post this review that i drafted in June) Introduction ------------ Wow, this has been a long time coming. After many years of waiting, I finally got some bagasse copy paper. For those unfamiliar with bagasse, it is sugar cane fiber, as opposed to run of the mill tree fiber. Rather than growing trees (yes, most paper is from farmed trees, not natural forest) and pulping them, bagasse is the waste sugar cane stalks from sugar production after the juices are squeezed out. Often it's burned to boil the sugar w
  19. It looks like Staples finally listened to the fans of their bagasse notebooks. They're finally offering unlined copy paper in their Sustainable Earth line. It's 95% sugarcane. It's only available online, though, and not in-store. They currently have a buy 2 get 1 free sale, plus free shipping. I haven't tried it, as I only just discovered it-- plus I still have a ton of Office Max's Sugarmade paper. I'm assuming this paper performs as well as their notebooks for fountain pen inks. I haven't met a sugarcane paper that didn't. So this is just a heads up and not a review. I know many lov
