Hear, hear, if this this the wove textured one with "Royal" watermark, here's why I like it:

 

- it's white, Asa Gao looks a beauty on it :wub:

- it's thin and slightly translucent to show the texture - definitely doesn't look like cardboard (aka HP Premium 120gsm or similar)

- very FP ink friendly

- although textured, you can easily write on it down to Japanese F / EF without scratching or catching / dislodging fibers

- it looks refined and elegant

 

 

Here are some pics of the paper, showing texture, translucency and watermark. Sorry about the white balance, the paper is actually *white*.

Thank You so much Amberleadavis!

 

This is an ultra informative thread.

 

Everyone should be aware of the importance of using fountain pen friendly paper.

Is it fair for an intelligent and family oriented mammal to be separated from his/her family and spend his/her life starved in a concrete jail?

Glad that others are enjoying the thread!

 

 

Napalm, that should be Royal Laid.

This is a cool, and useful thread. I read through all the samples, and I don't think I noticed any HP laser paper. I was thinking about getting some of the 32lb for binder use. Any experience with that, or another well-performing paper I could easily buy a ream of in the US? Some of these papers look really nice, but are unfamiliar to me, possibly because they are European.

Unless I say the paper was from BoBo Olson or it is a Tomoe River, Fabriano or Miquel Ruis paper all are easily available in the US and can be purchased by the ream. Miquel Ruis paper is available at Barnes and Noble in notebooks. Most came from my purchases when I found sales - some where at a screaming deal of $5 a ream. I bought every ream I could at that price. I paid the most for the Royal Marble and the Green Laid that were intended for my stationary.

 

The WORST performer is the HP Color Laserjet paper you see above. It has the Geek Products Logo on it.

      @Ruaidhri This was an absolutely wonderful bit of writing, and I hope that you're able to maintain the style once all of the medications are out of your system.  Take care and recover quickly!

      These comments make me sad as I sympathise with Ruaidhri, having great difficulties in being taken seriously. Or being taken at all (no off-colors jokes, please!) In spite of overwhelming odds,  Ruaidhri -now I know how to spell it- made a courageous decision and stuck to it. I was diagnosed with a similar growth in a place I will not reveal. Oh, well, if you insist it was Mount Sinai Hospital. But I firmly intend to walk in Ruaidhri's footsteps, if he will let me, on my next visit to Dublin.

      Reminds me of the day my associates and I developed a cure for all mankind's ills and mistakenly wrote it down with invisible ink.

      Was that the end of the Laboratory? Somehow the exactitude created a fully destructive device, as always!
