    Question Paper and envelope set for reasonable price

    Anyone know where these can be had? I hate writing letters on big sheets of Rhodia paper and putting them in a business size envelope. All the sets I can find are $25 USD. Thanks.

    I don't know whereabouts in the world you are but you might try looking on Amazon or at online pen/stationery sellers that might be available in your Country. Especially when they have sales. Envelopes and paper don't necessarily need to match. They might be less expensive if you buy them separately.

    I believe that Cult Pens in the UK still do free US shipping. Quote code "PENORAMA100" to get their latest 10% discount.

    Goulet has Clairefontaine 25 count A4 envelopes and 50-sheet A4 pad for $5 each. I have both and the paper is truly excellent.

    Only $10 for top end stationery to write 25 letters seems like an excellent value to me.

    You might find cheaper but the paper simply won't compare.

    The only downside is the paper is white. I wished I could find an off white set...

    Oddly enough, I found good stationery sets at thrift stores. They are usually unused and still in their original packaging (if not shrink-wrapped), and they are CHEAP! I've found all combinations of linen, parchment, and "normal" paper, in addition to specialty paper from different countries (Italy, Japan, China) that people purchased on their trips and never used. I think stationery paper consisted of better quality paper in general in the past, and they've been all fountain pen friendly for me so far, including a plain paper and envelope set from Hallmark from 1994, which turned out to be on par with Clairefontaine, which is saying something!

    I recently purchased Strathmore 500 sheet premium writing paper 6x8 inches and 4.75x6.5 inch 25 envelopes on Amazon for less than $20 total.

    I checked prices for Clairefontaine Triomphe A4 writing paper and DL envelopes on Cult Pens last night. 4.40 for the paper and 5.40 for DL envelopes. That converts to $12.11 for the set at full price. Yesterday it would have been 10% less with the discount offer. It's very nice FP friendly paper.

    I use a paper cutter and split the big Rhodia sheets to half size.
    I use a fountain pen and a paper planner - paperinkplan.wordpress.com
