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.”
