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.

Need a few recent reviews for inspiration?
“My favorite paper this week was the french rule. I could not resist using the grid to create a drawing. It is a back ground and it is a map to a drawing. The blue of the ball point pen complemented the blue of the french rule. If you like graph paper this should be on your must try list.”
On the No.8 offered in week 5: “If you don’t have a ruler handy, think “bookmark size” or “shopping list size.” I own a gridded variant of this, and I use it for both purposes. It’s just wide enough to get a decent list written down, and plenty long for use as a notes/bookmark. Consider using one to keep characters straight in your next Russian novel.”
“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.”
