P25. JNB Practice Pad 8.5x11
JNB Practice Pad. 8.5"x11".

Smooth paper for pointed pen and broad edge calligraphy. The paper takes the ink well and does not bleed or feather with most inks. (We tested with Higgins Eternal, Noodler’s, McCaffery's, and Richtone Colors, as well as Pilot Parallel Pen ink cartridges). For pointed pen, the smooth surface helps avoid pen catches on upstrokes. Guidelines will show through. Good for classes and practice (24 lb bond).

Choose 20, 50, or 100 sheets.

For an 11"x17" version of this pad, see item P20.
