I currently use 52gsm white TR paper.  For me it is too thin and flimsy.... and shows through more than i would prefer.  I love Clairefontaine Triomphe paper but it is too heavy for multi-page international letters.  So what's in between?  I prefer white that's able to show sheen and shading.  Blank, dot grid or lined works.  I look forward to your suggestions.  PS... I am in the USA so stuff I can get here, please.. :)

For my international letters I use TR because it's better than airmail paper. I use regular dye based inks that don't show through at all and I always use both sides of my TR paper. I've received letters on onion skin paper bought on etsy or ebay If you can get Maruman Mnemosyne paper in the right size that's a great writing paper.

Amazon stocks a wide array of international papers. I have used Gohrsmuhle in an 80gsm formulation which is really nice. I don't use both sides, but looking at a current letter, it has some show through but no bleed with an Iroshizuku green ink in a Pelikan M1000 EF nib. Vanness has the Yamamoto papers as both a sampler and packs of 50 or 100 sheets, some of which are nice and light and A4 sized. Feel free to PM me if you have any questions.

      Not sure if this has been suggested already but would a setting for localized regions or chapters in FPN be helpful? I don't know if there is a way to find local FPN members who would be nearby. I don't know if we want to be discoverable but a setting to know how many members are in 25, 50, or a 100 miles of each other might be helpful. We can create a regions specific network like Craigslist where people could use that to connect with nearby members, conduct in person sales, arrange FPN meetups

      Hi again all, I forgot to tell y'all that I made the post about Sweden ink PIF. Most have probably found it long ago, but here's a link, anyway:

      I read your blog post and all the replies with much interest. I'm a FP user in Australia. Been part of this forum for years but rarely post. I did come across your ink sharing thread and considered participation. For me it's not lack of interest but lack of time to play around with FP and inks. I'd feel bad to put my hand up for the box and just have it sit until gosh knows when...   I also think that the FP community in Australia is smaller, and I wonder how many in the community are

      Even so, you'd end up with a fragmented list, and it becomes an O(N²) process for each prospective requestor to check what is available: effectively recreate the list of currently active servers (without any reliable up-to-date info upfront about the inks and number of samples on offer in the thread) from the sequential list of posts, which may be spread over two or even more pages, and then query each server independently to check what is currently on offer.   It comes down to not hav
