Rhodia is well-known and well-loved around the world for its orange notepads full of high quality writing paper. In contrast to many kinds of low quality paper, its super smooth writing surface works well with fountain pens and minimizes ink bleeding or ink feathering. Rhodia paper is acid-free, pH neutral and comes from responsibly managed forests. Rhodia notebooks and notepads come in all sorts of shapes, sizes and binding types, and the paper comes in graph, ruled, dot grid or plain formats. In general, Rhodia paper falls into two categories: 80g white or 90g ivory. If you haven’t tried Rhodia notepads yet, which type of paper should you choose?
We’ve used a number of pens, pencils and ink to write on both types of paper to help you make your choice. Each scan is unretouched and shows the writing results on the front and back of each page. Both types of paper have a very smooth surface and are fountain-pen-friendly. Ink had very little, if any, feathering or bleed-through (the exception is the Sharpie pen) on our samples and you could easily write on both sides of the page. If this type of high-quality French paper sounds like what you’ve been wanting to write with, we can highly recommend Rhodia!by
