G.Lalo Verge de France Writing Pad Performance

June 25, 2010 § Leave a comment

The G.Lalo Verge de France writing pads have received many plaudits in the Fountain Pen Network and other blogs but there’s nothing like trying the products at first hand.  At our retail shop, PenFountain.com in Cranleigh, not only do we offer the opportunity to try pens before purchase, we also offer some sample papers.

 The sample shown here is one of our Verge de France Ivory pads written with a Lamy Studio running a 1.5mm nib and Diamine Damson ink.  The pen writes with generous inking through this broad nib but the Verge de France, with its high quality pulp and 25% cotton content, handles the ink beautifully, without any spidering, despite its laid finish.  From the reverse, the sheet has minimal show-through and no bleeding.

It would be fair to say that the laid finish is not everybody’s taste but, in our experience, the surface does perform well with with numerous fountain pens we have tried.  The pads are available in a range of colours with matching envelopes from PenFountain.com  We endeavour to keep the colours offered in stock.
