Sandra Strait Reviews the Clairefontaine Graf-It Pads


We recently sent our friend Sandra Strait a Clairefontaine Graf-it pad to try out. She put this paper to the test by drawing in it with a multitude of different products including: pencil, colored pencil, alcohol markers, watercolors, drawing pens and more.

Graf-it’s are stapled sketchpads containing 80 sheets of white 90g acid-free ClaireFontaine paper. The paper has a matte texture and the pages are micro-perforated for easy removal. The covers are colorful, have  sturdy cardboard inside the back cover and are available in four sizes: 4 x 6, 6 x 8, 9 x 12 and 12 x 17.

In the end, Sandra said: “My first impression of the GraF it was of sturdiness, and after working with it for a while, I still have that impression. It is a workhorse.  You can use it for almost anything.  It is a pad, and you are as likely to tear pages out and use them, as to work in the pad itself. ” You can read her full review here.

Do you remember this? Sandra created a sketchbook out of a Exacompta Pocket Folio and Graf-It paper.
