Need a few recent reviews for inspiration?

From Jeff Dickerson on Week 10 offerings: “…absolutely no bleed through with fountain pen ink. All three had great surfaces and my fountain pen grabbed well and dried quickly. The ivory with gray lines is a beautiful color and my black ink stands out on it. Ink dried in 30 seconds but if blotted it dried immediately.”

From Tony Thomas on the Week 13 offering: First, I tried it as a mouse pad. Works great. Next, as a writing pad. Although the grid lines are darker than I would like (I prefer the faint violet lines), it performed flawlessly for writing using a variety of fountain pens and inks. No bleed through and very faint show through. I also tried it with pencil and was very impressed with its smoothness. Another great product from Rhodia and highly recommended!’

Rhodia Week 12 at bjw-draw “This week I discovered an irresistible combo from Rhodia and JetPens. Clairefontaine GraF it 90g paper and the Rook pen. … the perfect match for this paper that has just a little bit of tooth to hold the nib but still allow for the smooth line.”

  1. This paper is so light weight, yet completely fountain pen and brush pen friendly. While copics do bleed through (as they do on everything) the smooth paper allows for gorgeous blending. the grid size is perfect, though a little dark for my tastes. the trademark violet colour is more forgiving on the eyes than the boring blue grids.
