Good value but not best suited for other than ballpoints
on 27 December 2015
Notepads rather than a shorthand or reporter's notebook and also a little larger at A5, these can be useful to have around the home or at the workplace and utilise a far better quality of paper.
The covers are moderately stiff and together form an excellent supportive surface. The paper is a fairly bright white and of reasonable quality. However, although purchased with a partial intention to use with fountain pens, there is not only some surface bleeding of the ink but also about as much from one side of the paper through to the other. This paper is not therefore ideal for any water- or liquid-based inks such as rollerballs and is probably only suited to use with ballpoints and possibly gel pens.
The pages are lightly feint ruled with wide spacing and also micro-perforated so that they could be used for correspondence as the manufacturers claim the paper to be of 'Premium Quality' but it is unfortunately not, just marketable quality.
It is a pack of three and so very good value.
