The Paper Project puts FREE Exaclair paper samples in your hands – allowing you to try before you buy.
Each Monday, we will be offering samples from 1-4 Exaclair products to the first 50 people who sign up within that week. There is no limit to how many weeks you can sign up, and each week’s participants will be notified via e-mail that the samples are on their way. *Note: The Paper Project will be on holiday the weeks of December 22nd & 29th and will resume with Week 10 on Monday, January 5th.

“European paper makers come through with great stuff. No big surprise there. Is this Big Box, grade-school priced stuff? No. They aren’t ridiculously expensive either. All three are worth giving a go if you love to write letters and/or draw.”

“I have tried several papers from several manufacturers and Exaclair remains my personal standard to which all other paper is compared. The supercalendaring they do puts a smooth and buttery finish on the pages. They achieve this while maintaining the paper’s ability to absorb ink, but not feather, and dry relatively quickly. All this while holding international best in class environmental consciousness and sustainability.”

“There are improvements in printing the grid lines over the past 18 years, the line is sharper and I think very slightly finer. ”
“This is an interesting week of paper choices. The tabbed notebook page is a bit out of context. I find myself wondering if I would like the tabs in the context of the whole book.”
