140gsm Standard Paper
An excellent quality all-purpose paper suitable for writing, drawing, fountain pens, and mixed-media journalling. It is soft white in colour and uncoated with a very light tooth. This is our most popular choice, offering the least amount of show-through from front to back and still a good number of pages.
120gsm Extra Smooth
This extra smooth paper is ideal for juicy fountain pens and brush lettering without wearing on your nibs. With 20% cotton blended in, the surface is buttery smooth but uncoated so there is no unpleasant slickness or long drying times. Page counts are the same as our 140gsm standard paper, but the finished books and inserts are considerably thinner due to the lighter weight and higher compression of the surface.
100gsm Standard Paper
The same quality and surface as our 140gsm standard paper in a thinner package! This lighter-weight option offers the maximum number of pages per journal while still boasting minimal show-through with most inks. If you want the maximum number of pages we can pack into a book and you don’t mind a little more ghosting then this is the paper for you!
All of our writing papers are available in a variety of patterns:
- Ruled (Fine 5mm or Wide 6.5mm)
- Dot Grid (Micro 3.5mm, Standard 5mm or Large 7mm)
- Full Grid (Micro 3.5mm, Standard 5mm or Large 7mm)
We are also able to do specialist patterns such as isometric, french grid, & calligraphy on request!
140gsm Cartridge Paper
Our popular cartridge paper is also an excellent choice for artists! The surface is uncoated so it grabs dry media without loosing depth, but the paper has also been internally sized for wet strength so watercolours and other paints also perform beautifully.
135gsm Coloured Paper
Our coloured papers are a lovely thickness with the perfect amount of tooth for beautiful work in graphite, coloured pencil, charcoals, pastels, and other dry media. (Some ink work is also lovely, though we don’t recommend it for super juicy inks as the paper is not treated for wet media).
Currently, we carry:
- Dark Grey
- Pearl Grey
- Medium Brown
More colours may be available soon!
Claire-ify: Selecting this option when choosing your paper details will allow you to choose more than one coloured paper in your journal, including our white 140gsm. By default, we will include as close to even amounts of each colour as we can and alternate every page. We will also try to make the middle “spread” of each section different as well throughout the book! If you would prefer us to make entire sections in a full colour or some other configuration, feel free to explain your request in the notes of your order and we will do our best to accommodate!
225gsm Watercolour Paper
A superb acid-free paper suitable for watercolour and other wet-media. Our watercolour paper has a NOT finish (slightly rough) and is a mid-white shade. It holds without fraying even through repeated layering and scrubbing.
Finally, all of our papers (standard and watercolour) are acid- and chlorine- free to ensure the longest possible lifetime for your precious work.
