Paper: What Do Visual Journalers Want?—Part 2

This post continues yesterday's discussion of paper from a visual journaler's perspective.

Some Paper Recommendations

Below are some papers that we discussed as a group at November's meeting of the MCBA Visual Journaling Collective. I have provided my thoughts about them. Because these are my thoughts I encourage you to try the papers yourself before you dismiss them or before you make a bulk purchase. (You might want to buy sample packs as suggested in part one of this topic.) I’ve tried to be accurate in my info, but always double check before you buy. (Note that I couldn't find a way to make a superscript 2 for the weight fraction: gm/m2—the 2 should be a superscript. When I do it with Typepad's text controls the leading between my lines is messed up and that's a greater evil. Just read and imagine a superscript; you can do it.)

If a paper is readily available I have not listed a vendor. You should be able to find it at Daniel Smith, Wet Paint, Talas, Jerry's Artarama, Cheap Joe's, and so on. If I only know of one vendor I have provided a link. Also if I've been able to quickly think of an example from one of my journals that is already scanned and on my website I've provided a link to a journal page using that paper, so click and see some extra work.)
