Casemate Index Cards

Grabbed a pack of Casemate index cards at Wal-mart today since I can't resist back to school supplies. These are about .58 cents a pack right now:

Now they're clearly not ideal, but they worked at least passably withall the inked pens I had hanging around with no bleed-through to the back. The Diamine even still showed some shading. I'm betting they'll behave like a charm with X-feather, since they took 54th Mass from my M nib TWSBI 580 with no issue. Copper orange behaved well too, with less feather even than it usually shows on my Rhodia pads (I don't know why, but it does.) My scanner is not the greatest at capturing true to color. Sorry!

 

For other folks who go through index cards like I do, might be worth it to stock up on these. Sorry about the crumpled up label, I was just going to use these with gel pens like I usually do but I thought 'what the heck' and tried some FP's on there. Happy bargain hunting!

I just got a pack today too! I figured they could come in handy with ink swabs (and maybe some studying too, I guess :D)

Christ, 60c??!

 

That's more the level I'm used to, but these days around here downunder 6X4 Index Cards (aka System cards) are selling for A$7-9 for a 100pk

 

Up in Asia they're still only $2-3ish

 

Crazy... :(

 

Oh and the lined is cheaper than unlined!

At walmart tonight I also found some good casemate stuff. Picked up a couple leatherette journals, neon colors with elastic band, ribbon bookmark 8.27x5.8", guessing 32lb bond or 70# offset. Holds up pretty well with Salior Jentle Yama-Dori written with a Pilot Falcon SEF. Also works with a Pilot Custom Heritage 912 with a FA nib, inked with Kelly Green, pretty wet. Show through is almost non-existant. For 4 bucks you can't beat it. They were just thrown up on the shelf. I'm planning to go back and grab them while I can. As usual, they aren't listed on Walmart's site and I can't find any pictures of them online. I lost the receipt, but I think they were around $3.97. Working on a more detailed review, which I'll post later :D

 

Wait I spoke too soon, I found an image online. These are them, except this must be an old version. The ones I picked up tonight have an elastic band and are a different brand (mine are casemate-label it says its a walmart brand). But, the numbers are the same No.0126002 (sorry for it being sideways, I hotlinked it from another website.

 

Here is a blog post I found about them: http://dacotah.net/blog/large-leatherette-journal-3-find-walmart/

I use to own a few spiralbound notebooks that used this same casemate paper, but had no branding on it at all. It's good to see they are implementing a name to the paper so it can be easier to get.
