Many of you may know that I have a shop on this site that sells sample packs of fountain-pen-friendly paper. As a fountain pen user, this is something that I originally wanted for myself but wasn’t able to find, so I created it. Now I’m back with another item that no one else seems to offer, but I think many people will want. What is it? A Paper of the Month subscription service!
Paper of the Month Details
As you might expect from a subscription service, you’ll receive a new batch of paper at the beginning of each month. Each shipment will include two different paper samples, with each sample consisting of 3 sheets of paper. Some months may include one sample of writing or notebook paper and one other type of paper sample, such as an envelope or index cards.
I know that many people who may be interested in this have already purchased The Big Sample Pack, which includes many easier-to-find paper samples. Because of this, I won’t be including any papers from the Big Sample Pack in the subscription. All of the monthly paper samples will be papers and notebooks that are not as common. Don’t worry about them being impossible to find, though, as I’ll include information with each shipment as to where you can purchase them if you love them.
So what’s it going to cost? I’m happy to say it only costs a little more than an ink sample. The monthly subscription price is just $4, and that includes shipping! At this time, subscriptions are only available to addresses in the United States. I am considering doing a quarterly subscription service that will be available worldwide. If this is something that might interest you, please contact me or let me know in the comments.
The First Month – August 2021
I’m sure you’re all curious as to what the first month is going to include. I just picked up one of the new Leuchtturm 120gsm notebooks and that will be the notebook sample paper. While I haven’t posted a review, I can tell you that it is great paper and I’m very happy with how it handles fountain pens. For the writing paper, I’m including a sample of Crown Mill Laid Writing Paper, which is very nice paper for letter writing.
