Original Crown Mill Classic Laid 5.75 x 8.25 Tablet - Grey is rated 4.3636 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great paper. This is a rich paper which conveys the idea that you care about detail; and the cream color enhances the impression. The faint, "laid" pattern makes it somewhat easier to keep letter sizes consistent, and helps keep lines straight; I find the lined "guide" to be less important than with ordinary stationery. This size is particularly good -- not only for short notes, but it's the correct width to enclose an unfolded check. Combined with the matching (lined) envelopes, this is the perfect paper to send a personal note with payment; or to send the gift of money. Good with almost every color ink; especially good with browns and dark reds (such as Diamine Ancient Copper, Macassar and Oxblood). Perhaps a little too much texture for a very fine nib -- but otherwise the texture doesn't present a challenge to even my "F" obliques. Buy some.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Fine Quality Paper The thing I like most about this paper (I bought the light blue) is that it doesn't feather as many laid finishes do. It takes whatever you lay down and confines it to the line. I'be been using my new Sargasso Sea ink by Diamine on it and the contrast is stunning. So is DeAtramentis Myrrh, another of my favorite new inks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sophisticated Paper It's really hard to find good notepaper these days. Nobody sells it in brick and mortar shops anymore. I have many penpals and people that I write snail mail to, and this paper is so elegant. Combined with a nice fountain pen, I look way more sophisticated than I really am.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Light Pink The baby pink is a lovely color that is feminine without being overly girly. Works well with most fountain pen inks.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lovely. Not too much to say, very nice paper. Very toothy, I find I prefer medium to broad nibs on this paper as fine or extra fine nibs seem to catch just a little. The grey colour is very nice and cool, and adds a bit of character to each different ink I've tried on it. The lined guide sheet provided is a nice touch but the paper is too opaque for it to be of any use without a light table. Worth the money, my letters have that much more character now.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Nice Paper I've been using this paper for writing letters, and it's nice. It's absorbent enough that ink dries fairly quickly on it, but not so much that ink feathers or bleeds. I can easily write on both sides of the paper. That said, I'm not sure I'll be buying it again. I may need to experiment with some other papers. I like some texture when I write, but the laid paper is perhaps a bit more textured than I wanted. It is still very nice paper, though.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not exactly stub-friendly The Waterman Havana looks just like the perfect match on top of this cream paper. Its rustic character however is not quite what I look for in my stationery. Writing with my beloved stub is not pleasant at all. It feels scratchy and skips a little. I've got a definitely better experience with a normal fine nib, but then the problem was feathering, this time using J.Herbin's Bleu Nuit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Laid paper fine for fluid flow The Original Crown Mill in cream is nice to look at and nice to handle. I personally feel that I have to be more aware and deliberate when using a fountain pen on laid paper. The finished letter is worth the extra effort and if you want to use a laid finish then I encourage you to give it a try.
