Uk - Oxford Optik On Sale At Tesco



Rate Topic 0

Recommended Posts

Hey Folks

 

I was in Tesco today and notices Oxford Optik paper is half price.

 

It says the offer is on until 5th September, but the ones I saw where:

 

Oxford A5 Wirebound £1

Oxford A4 Refill Pad £1.50

Oxford A4 Wirebound £2

Oxford A4 Project book £2.50

 

 

They had a lot of other offers, but nothing FP friendly as far as I know.....

 

Not sure how long the stock will last, but gather up while you can.

 

No other FP friendly paper beats it...Including Rhodia in my opinion.

Do you know if they stock the new SOS Notes line?

 

 

No Idea, sorry, was only paying attention to the Oxford, the did have Nu:Craze? or something below the Oxford in my local Tesco, but not sure what else

Sounds good

I bought some clairefontain that arrived today but I don't like it, so I'm looking out to try something new. CF is way too feedback-less-ly smooth and 'greasy' - my fountain pens skips horribly whereas they don't on any other paper, and it seems to reduce the line width and shading of broad nibs

Thank you. I was referring to the new Oxford SOS Notes.

I don't remember seeing any, but there was a lot of school supplies, so I might not have noticed them.

 

They did have a Project Book, which has dividers etc looks like this http://my-oxford.co.uk/student-and-education/notebook for £2.50

Thanks for the heads up, I'll check out my local Tesco.

 

Has anyone tried their new own brand range of notebooks? They're typical 'me too' products, soft touch covers in a range of colours and elastic closure but at £5 for an A5 made in China notebook I've not felt compelled to buy one and discover yet another disappointment.

Tried this morning and they were at there normal prices, I imagine that price is only for certain stores e.g. Only North Ireland.

They also had some Staedtler Triplus crayons at half price, I was tempted but the last time used crayons was over 5 years ago.

Is this paper similar in texture to Rhodia? I remember trying it a few years back and some of my pens did not work well with it.

It was on offer in ROI stores last week too but not this week at the usual harsh conversion rate. A Tesco employee there told me it's due back for offer in the third week of August for back to school.

Maybe your back to School sale hasn't started yet, as the english schools are not long off.

 

 

Here we have been off since the end of June, so maybe our prep starts early for an earlier return?
