Need a few recent reviews for inspiration?
From Jeff Dickerson on Week 20 offerings of G. Lalo Coreale Deckled Edge Correspondence Cards: “This paper is almost too beautiful to write on. However, it is a pleasure to use. It takes any ink. if you have an embossing tool it is a perfect paper to emboss, deboss, engrave or send to a letterpress shop. I think this is a better way to send thank you note than the cheap notes I have used in the past.”
From Dave on Week 19’s Le Carre samples: “Each of the samples from the LeCarre Pad performed just as expected. Using my staedtler triplus rollers, I found the paper to be ultra-smooth and accepting to the colors. Dry time was about 2 seconds for each of my sample drawings. I love the graph format because it helps me to conceptualize my ideas to be executed through my still very rudimentary drawing skills. The LeCarre Pad is definitely a winner in my book and I’ll look to add some to my collection.”
