JNB Copperplate / Engrossers Pad 8.5X11in

Item Code: P01-8


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)

Ink bleeds

The paper is smooth and lovely to write on, and the guidelines are very helpful. But Moon Palace Sumi ink bleeds right through, as does Higgins Eternal. Higgins also feathers like mad. I bought this pad to do Copperplate drills on. Alas. It will not work for that.

Love this paper

I use Sumi and Ziller inks with this and have no issues. I like the lines for practicing and for lining up with envelopes. It is very smooth. I REALLY love this paper.

Great paper

I tried this paper years ago and had issues with bleeding. Recently at a class the teacher had a pad of this paper and I tried it again and I was thrilled that it was just as smooth as before but this time no bleeding at all! I ordered a pad and have been using it non-stop and am in love, it is my new favorite practice paper.
