Founntain Pen Friendly Pads At Wal-Mart

In the now pawed-over back-to-school and stationary area, Walmart has several types of ring-bound pads which are fountain pen friendly. I've tested the paper with a TWSBI Eco filled with Waterman Brown, and two Preppys, one with Platinum purple ink (03 nib) and the other with the ever lovely Shaeffer Red (also 03 nib). No feathering or show through on the soft, absorbent paper, which lives up to it's descriptive name of "Sketch Pad" (Black cover, 9" x 6", 75 lb paper, 75 sheets, perforated, acid- and lignin-free, made in USA by Carolina Pad) and "Sketch Diary" (blue and black cover, 70 sheets, 5.5" x 8.5", perforated, made in India). There are other pads available, too, so look around. All are marked down to under or around a dollar or two.

 

Really, really cheap for the quality. Best deal I've seen in several years. I went back and bought the remaining 11 or 12. Bring a pen and test the paper in a inconspicuous area, and you'll be very impressed.

 

The only other good deal I know of remains the 32 lb HP paper on Amazon, which is a perfect paper for fountain pens. I just printed guide dots on some of mine, using a template I downloaded.
