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.

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.
