This is a review of the 6x9-inch UCreate Sketchbook available at U.S. Dollar Tree stores and elsewhere.

I did not have a battalion of different fountain pens inked up with different inks; only one fountain pen participated in the test. I did use, however, a variety of felt-tip markers and rollerball pens I had on hand to give an idea of this paper's bleed-through and show-through performance.

As you can see, bleed-through was only a problem with the Ultrafine Sharpie Permanent Marker. While the other inks showed through to varying degrees (most notably the Papermate Flair and Uniball Roller), even the Parker Medium Fountain Pen with Quink Ink exhibited minimal show-through. This paper is made in India, although the sketchpad's manufacturer is the U.S.-based Carolina Pad. The paper has a smooth finish. I began using this as a substitute for a more expensive blank Moleskine notebook, and liked the results of my first foray into blank paper.
