    Default Lined Paper Options

    I currently use Rhodia lined pads for my letter writing. Looking for other options beside Rhodia, looking for suggestions what paper others are using for letter writing.

    I tend to use plain paper for letter writing, so among others I currently have Clairefontaine Triomphe, Rhodia, Elco James Velin, Life Writing Paper-Bank paper, or Tomoe River
    Instead of having lines on the paper I use a line guide underneath the sheet.

    Me too Chrissy. Writing looks much nicer on plain paper and the advantage of using a line guide is that you can decide on the spacing which I like to be 8mm. Rhodia’s line paper is 6mm (or 7mm - i forgot and am too lazy to walk upstairs to my study to check) and that is too small.

    Life paper has some pads with lines. Bought one recently, very nice. Also, Black 'n' Red...the lines are light gray.

    Staples Bagasse was one of my favorites because of the pale khaki lines, but I'm not sure it's available now.
    My other pen is a Montblanc.

    And my other blog is a tumblr!

    I used to have sets of envelopes, cards and letter paper and with them came a sheet with line guide. Do we have to make them in Words, Libre Office or something like that these days or can they still be bought? My best paper at the moment is clear and unlined.
