Is WHSmith paper any good??Watch
Specifically I am referring to this: https://www.whsmith.co.uk/products/w...033272542.html
(Squared as opposed to lined. I will also need to get graph paper too as I plan on taking maths intensive subjects.)
If nobody has any idea about this paper I'd be open to recommendations of squared and graph paper that is good quality.
Thanks so much!!
Edit: just checked and they are the same thickness, so I think it's just being bound on the short edge rather than the long edge making it seem flimsier
I find their squared paper quite thin compared to their lined paper (or just standard paper in general), but the squares are a good size for my writing and I write in pencil so it's no problem for me. I imagine it would be an issue if you write with a fountain pen, but a standard biro would do fine if you don't write too aggressively
I'm a bit of a stationery addict and was happy using them through the whole of A levels for my notes but for my to do lists I started using pukka pads and found that the paper is a higher quality
WHS regular refill is 70gsm and their premium pads are 80g. Pukka pad refills tend to be 80gsm
I always used to use them when writing neat notes and also for non-academic things, i.e. pen pal letters.
The paper is great; not fancy premium stuff, but does the job and the squared layout is great for all kinds of drawings/mathematical sums/etc. I recommend it!
I tend to vary between black gel pen and standard biros - both work fine and don't bleed through at all.
Hope this helps!
I don't use their squared paper but I have used refill pads from WHSmith before and they are perfectly fine, though a bit expensive for what they are.
