Customer Reviews

Clairefontaine Triomphe Small Envelopes
It's Clairefontaine paper; it works well for showing off beautiful Ink without breaking the bank and feels more substantial than Tomoe River, which can come off looking cheap to those that don't know better.

Clairefontaine Triomphe Self-Seal, Lined White Envelopes (25pk)
When you spend the time and funds to write a beautiful letter on paper that shows off the unique qualities of a fine ink, the envelope you send it off in should look just as nice. This fills that need.

Same Clairfontaine quality as always. I thought this was bound on the side, but it's bound on top. I need to pay closer attention. It doesn't really matter, though. It's nicely bound.

Clairefontaine Classic Top Staple-bound Random
These are not staple bound as far as I can see. They are bound with adhesive, which is better. They tear off neatly and are just the thing for field notes when bird watching and for shopping lists. The graph paper allows for sketching and is a pleasure to use.

Clairefontaine Triomphe
These are all I use for letter writing, and I can write really long ones. I prefer the plain paper as my writing style feels inhibited with the one with lines, but sometimes pen shops are out of the plain. Great paper, IMO.

Clairefontaine 1951(48 Sheets)
I ordered four of these to use for various notes. One turned into my gym log, and it is the perfect size. Even better, it's the perfect strength! As a body builder, it holds up to being folded back, shoved in a gym bag, dripped with water, preworkout and such, weights dropped on it, and everything else you can imagine. I keep another for writing notes at church, a third for writing exercises, and I don't recall the fourth one, but I can assure you, they get put to good use. Well worth the money!

Clairefontaine Classic Top Wirebound
This is where it's at! Great, affordable paper. Even picks up sheen! No feathering, no bleed-through, decent dry-time (yes, sheen looks best on Tomoe River, which is why it's my usual favorite, but that costs more and you'll wait forever for inks to dry). This is a great balance of practicality and making your inks look good. If you're debating between this and Field Notes, avoid the Field Notes and get the Clairefontaine instead. You'll thank yourself later.

Clairefontaine Triomphe Small Envelopes
These envelopes are very good; they are fountain pen friendly and affordable. The only reason for the 4 rating on functionality is the inside fold sometimes catches the paper when inserting. It's a very minor inconvenience.

I bought a few notebooks to get me over the line to free shipping. I am pleased with these little notebooks. I have designated one as my pen collection journal. I try to keep an inventory and notes on the pens. This is a perfect fit for my desk. was randomly given a dark grey and an orange.
