Pen Friendly Onionskin Vol. 1
- Includes: 3 pen friendly onionskin notepads (B7/A6/B6)
- Each notepad has 25 pages
B7 size : 35NFC
35NFC is a food-grade oil-resistant paper. Most oil-resistant paper use plastic film or fluorine resin, but these are not the most environmentally friendly. 35NFC avoids these materials and produces its oil-resistancy through overlapping layers of highly dense paper. The regular paper absorbs oil immediately on contact, but with 35NFC, there is no absorption even after 30 minutes. Our ink tests showed a longer than normal dry time, but great color representation and no bleed-through.
A6 size : Typewriter Paper
It is important for typewriter paper to be thin and durable. This Typewriter Paper is made to handle the strong strikes of the typewriter keys, able to show-through crisp letters even if stacked five sheets thick.
B6 : Champion Copy
Champion Copy N was developed to provide high translucency and sturdiness for use in the diazo copying process. It is also suitable for offset and letterpress printing.
