Try a sample of 8 different types of papers, great for all levels of calligraphy. One page each from the following pads:
P21. Light Grid JNB: Best for work for reproduction.
P21. Dark Grid JNB: Best for student use in classrooms.
P01. Copperplate Grid: Light blue with slant lines.
P09. Boris Layout: Popular for beginning classes and for copperplate for reproduction.
P32. Canson Pro-Layout Marker: Black guidelines under the sheet are easily seen even without a light table. Higher quality than the Boris. Highly recommended.

P36. Clairefontaine Triomphe: Extra white, super smooth. 23lb vellum finish paper.
P64 Maruman Mnemosyne Imagination Blank Pad: Delightfully smooth paper. Super for pointed pen work. A favorite of Heather Held.
P76. Strathmore Writing Pad - Blank:Enough tooth for broad-edged pen, but smooth enough for pointed pen.
P76. Strathmore Writing Pad- Lined: Dotted, light-blue lines.
P69. Gilbert Bond: high quality paper for broad edge calligraphy.

P21. JNB Graph Pad 11x17, 50 Sheets JNB Graph Pad
Light blue grid (8 squares/inch). 24 lb bond. 11"x17". Approx 50 sheets.
A non-bleeding paper that is great for calligraphy. (We use the same paper in our JNB Practice Pads.) Many instructors have their students use this pad in their classes.
(For graph with slant lines P01.)
Please choose color: Light or Dark.
Light: This grid does not show on many copiers, shows faintly on others, and usually disappears when you adjust the exposure one setting lighter. If you use a copier to produce your finished art for reproduction, this is the pad for you. This pad is good for jobs done at quick printers.
Dark: For classes, some students may appreciate a slightly darker grid. This is particularly true for adult classes. This is still a light blue grid. Some teachers have commented that their students found the original pad's grid was too light.
P39. Cotton Comp Pad This layout pad from Borden & Riley is 100% Rag Marker with a very smooth finish. The paper takes ink without bleeding or feathering. With these great qualities, this pad is a step-up from the regular Marker Layout. 50 sheets.
"The Cotton Comp paper is now my favorite, as it is more
translucent and letters can be traced through it more easily than through layout paper, yet it has more substance than tracing paper."
