Pads of Paper


P103. Pad Paper Samples
P103. Pad Paper Samples.

Try a sample of 13 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.
P39. Cotton Comp: Takes ink without bleeding or feathering. A step up from the regular Marker Layout. A Sheila Waters favorite.
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.
P99. JNB Linen Finish Paper. Ivory color, for broad-edge or pointed pen.
P92. Mastering Copperplate Pad. Uses the same guidelines as Eleanor Winters book "Mastering Copperplate 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.

P01-8. JNB Copperplate / Engrossers Pad 8.5X11in
P01-8. JNB Graph Pad with Slant Lines for Copperplate. 24lb bond.
8.5" x 11". Approx. 50 sheets.
Slant lines - 55-degree angle

Smooth paper for pointed pen. 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.) The smooth surface helps avoid pen catches on upstrokes.

Approx. 50 sheets with a blue grid and slanted lines for copperplate, 8 squares/inch. Grid may show up with some copiers. This pad takes the place of copperplate guidelines.

This paper is available in Blank Pads (see items P20 and P25).
For an 11"x17" Copperplate Graph Pad, use code P01-11
For a regular 11"x17" graph pad for broad-edged penwork, use code P72 (Gilbert Graph Pad)

P87. JNB Deluxe Lined Black Paper
P87. JNB Deluxe Lined Black Paper

A very smooth, black paper that accepts ink well and is great for pointed pen work. Instead of solid lines, black dots are used to create subtle lining that can be seen close-up when writing but that is not easily visible at a distance. Solid printed lines can sometimes create noticeable "lines" in your lettering where the printed line has repelled the ink; using dots minimizes this problem. 80lb text /120gsm. 9"x12" pad.
