  • About the store: We carry mainly writing paper - pads, notebooks, letter sets, and accessories - mostly from Japan. If you have any questions or are not sure what you need, please feel free to contact us via the "About" link.

  • Please see our updated "About" page.



  • For the first time - the Seven Seas Writer, Standard and Crossfield are all in stock at the same time!

  • Writing in thick notebooks can be uncomfortable - as you get to the bottom of the page, your hand has no where to rest, and the pen becomes unstable. Here is are some tips that may help you avoid that situation.

  • Have you ever wondered whether that expensive notebook or paper pad you need is a good value relative to other choices out there? If so, please check out our Notebook Value Comparison!

  • If you are concerned about "show through" of reverse-side writing on thin papers, please read this.


  • Check out these pictures of vintage handwriting samples on old paper from the "Golden Age" of handwriting. The lines on the handwritten letters are spaced 9.5mm apart; the lines on most of my correspondence papers are 10mm apart. Line spacing on note-taking paper (for example, steno/legal pads) and journals is typically 6-8mm.
