    I can confirm that for me the sugar cane paper from Staples has done very well with my pens and using Noodler's Black ink.

    I also have found that to be the case too. Generally happy with Brazil, Vietnam, and some India paper.

    + Hammermill Digital Color Copy Paper, 28lb. It works very well and is even slightly better than HP paper. Plus the paper weight is great. Like most of these papers they are coated so your colors will tend to be more saturated. May take a little longer to dry but not terribly so. Available in reams.

    + Black'n Red notebooks, bound, are excellent also. Same notes as on the copy paper though.

    Here are a few comparisons below though the prices may be out of date by a small amount.

    Paper Brand & Name Price No. Of Sheets Weight lbs Weight gsm $/Sheet
    Hammilton Color Copy Digital, letter, #28, Ream 500 sheets $18.49 500 28 105.3 $0.04
    Kokuyo Campus Loose A4, 8.3x11.7 $7.75 50 75 $0.15
    Clairefontaine Triomphe Notepad - A4 $9.00 50 90 $0.18
    Tops Legal Pad, 50sht, 16lbs, Pack 12 pads $17.79 600 16 60.2 $0.03
    Black'nRed Notebook $7.00 96 24 90.0 $0.07

    *Sorry about the spacing. I did arrange it but in preview it drops all the tabs and spacing.
