International Girl aerogrammes review

Hey folks,

 

I just reviewed the International Girls aerogrammes on my blog. Don't let the name throw you, they're quite adult-appropriate and they're fantastic for letter-writing with fountain pens.

 

Here's the review:

International Girl aerogrammes: My latest fancy

 

It's got a bunch of photos that I don't know how to feature here, but here's the practical text from the end:

 

"My big concern when I bought these was how they would hold up to fountain pens and fountain pen ink, because I prefer to write all my letters with fountain pens (unless they're on black paper, and then I'll reach for the metallic gel pens). I was a little worried about the high recycled content, because that often means there will be a lot of feathering and bleed-through. However, these have been a fantastic surprise in that they take fountain pen ink beautifully. The top photo was taken AFTER the letter had already been written on the other side - clearly no bleed-through at all, and you can see for yourself that there's no feathering on the ink. (That green ink is Noodler's Eternal Hunter Green, for those who are wondering.) The paper has a lovely feel, with a little bit of a laid surface, but it takes even my extra-fine Japanese nibs without any feedback, AND the ink dries very quickly on it. This has become some of my favorite letter-writing paper in its own right.

 

I also have the Chinese sun and clouds design, which is just as lovely, so I'm sure to feature some photos of that in future posts. (It is lined with a fairly narrow rule, while these of the Arabic Birds are blank/unlined.)

 

If you're looking for some great letter-writing stationery that supports a good cause, I just can't recommend this highly enough."
