LIFE Airmail Letter Set

Calculated at checkout

When was the last time you sent or received one of these? For me, they bring back all kinds of warm images, like my mother sending off a letter to my grandmother in a faraway place. They make me want to dash off a letter to someone...anyone!

Each set comes with a 50-sheet pad of very thin onion-skin paper. The lined sheet that you see in the pictures is a ruled template that you place underneath the paper to guide your writing (if you need it...I know I do). A pack of 10 envelopes is also included, and you can order more envelopes from the "envelopes" category. To seal the envelopes, there is a pull strip with a good adhesive.

One accessory that will work well with these is a B5-size "writing mat". Please check it out in the Accessories category.

  1. Great Envelopes 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 22nd Apr 2017

    These air mail envelopes are not so easy to find these days, and when they are available they are often subject to price gouging... Thank you for offering these, and at a fair price. They are nice quality, lightweight, opaque envelopes & I am pleased to have found them!

  2. Great with fountain pens 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 7th May 2016

    I picked up both envelops and letter pad, and both are excellent with fountain pens, showing lots of shading. The letter pad paper is remarkably thin and translucent, but stands up well to even wet inks from broad nibs. If you grew up before the 1980's and had family send you letters from Europe, this is a wonderful recall to that era. It doesn't seem to be 100% the same paper, but it's honestly close enough in my opinion, and your recipients will definitely notice how different and unique your letters are. Lots of that crinkly sound as another reviewer mentioned. Personally, if you choose only one, get the envelopes. They're spectacular, and the self-seal really does stick securely. But the pad is also very good. Great combo!

  3. Loved by all my recipients! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 2nd Apr 2016

    I absolutely love this letter pad. Onionskin paper has a lot of the same properties of Tomoe River for fountain pens, but it is even thinner. You can't write on the other side, but that's a small price to pay for that lovely crinkly sound!

    Onionskin paper is difficult to find. Nanami Paper, thank you, for carrying this thin lovely paper. Also thank you for your wonderful customer service.
