Graph & Lined Pads        Grid Pads        Pad Paper Sample        Plain Pads


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)

P70. Gilbert Bond 25% Cotton Practice Pad 11x17inch
P70.Gilbert Bond 25% Cotton Practice Pad. 24lb.
11"x17", 50 sheets

A great pad for broad-edged pen practice. Has a nice tooth and holds good hairlines. Acid-free. Highly recommended by Peter Thornton.

also available in 8.5"x11", see item P69

"Calligraphers in Portland [Oregon] have been using Gilbert Bond for years and years and LOVE it totally. My students and I have decided that ‘we are worth it’ and use Gilbert for practice. We think using a better paper makes our calligraphy practice seem more important (and practice is so important!). I thoroughly recommend the paper; it would be hard to recommend Gilbert Bond too highly!" - Carol DuBosch

P92-8. JNB "Mastering Copperplate" Practice Pad 8.5x11 inches
P92-8 JNB "Mastering Copperplate" Practice Pad 8.5"x11"

This companion guideline pad for Eleanor Winters' Mastering Copperplate Calligraphy book has approx. 50 sheets of smooth, non-bleeding, 24lb paper that is printed with light-blue guidelines and slant lines for Copperplate (3/8" x-height). The same paper (blank) is in our JNB Practice Paper Pads (P25, P20). This pad is also available in 11"x17" (P92-11).



Your Price

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.

translucent and letters can be traced through it more easily than through layout paper, yet it has more substance than tracing paper."
