I bought this paper because I made a pen/ink review template on the computer and wanted paper that was popular/common to print onto for my reviews. The paper is decently thick, smooth and white and takes ink very well, even from a wet flowing flex nib. Paper itself is 5 star, the only reason I gave it 4 was because my pad came with one of the corners bent/folded over. Was packed very well so, no idea how/why. I only wish that the paper came as a lose sheet 50pk instead of a pad.
