Clairefontaine Trophee Paper

Technically, Clairefontaine Trophee Paper is a high quality paper made for copiers, laser printers and ink jet printers. However, because it is available in many pleasing colors, I wondered if I could use this with my fountain pens as stationery too.

I really like purple, so I chose the color lilac to give it a try. Trophee paper does not have the same super-smooth surface as regular 90g Clairefontaine writing paper. Even though it is different, I found it to be a nice quality surface for handwriting.

This paper is 80g so I wondered if some fountain pen ink might show through to the other side and I am really happy that it didn’t! None of the fountain pens and inks that I tried feathered or bled through the paper, but the Sharpie pen bled through the paper as it usually does. The Noodler’s Nightshade ink took awhile to dry on this paper so I ended up smearing it slightly.

Writer’s Bloc has imported this A4 size paper in three different colors: ivory, pearl grey and lilac.

I’m happy to have the lilac color Trophee paper for using my fountain pens to write an occasional note to friends or family. What’s your favorite color of paper for writing notes and letters?

  1. I’m so glad I found this entry. I’ve been looking around for stationary. Lately I’ve become very interested in fountain pens Ink and notebooks have followed.
    Now, of course, I need something to do with my new fountain pens. So writing letters, being obvious, came to mind, but that requires stationary. I can’t believe how hard it is to find anything that doesn’t cost a fortune and is in a color I like. So your business has provided the perfect solution and I’ve ordered the Clairefontaine Trophee Paper in gray and envelopes to go with the paper.
    The order may be being put together as I write this (along with notebooks). I can’t resist any of them that are put together in an out of the ordinary way like discs.

  2. Dennis,
    Writing letters on grey paper must make them look very classy. What’s your favorite ink color to use on grey? I was surprised to discover that so many ink colors looked good on the lilac paper. Thank you very much! We hope you enjoy your paper.
