YUPO For Alcohol Inks 84.7gsm/110μ A4 50sheets
It was developed by the Oji Oleochemical Paper Research Institute, a joint venture between Oji Paper and Mitsubishi Petrochemical, to address the problem of depletion of wood resources due to increased consumption. The institute applied for basic patents for its manufacturing technology in Japan, Europe, the United States, and many other countries, and was widely talked about as the "development of a dream paper. In 1971, Yupo was announced, and it is now used in many places as a material that combines the characteristics of film and paper. Among the more than 20 types of Yupo series, YAMAMOTO PAPER has carefully selected the best for alcohol ink art.

Ink friendly to a fault, and a joy for fountain pens. For absolute color trueness it bests other ink-friendly classics such as Tomoe River, Clairefontaine, and Rhodia. Colors just pop! (Or maybe not pop; they just perfectly lock in.) It allows shading galore, and shows sheen from certain inks that I've never, ever noted for that quality before. The paper color is a very pleasing, subtle, egg shell white that lends itself to readability. It has nice weight and thickness and all of the requisite resistance to feathering, bleed-through and show-through that fountain pen writing demands. Longish dry times, as expected, but not bad. I believe it is a coated paper, but still has a "real paper" feel, with a slight toothiness in the hand (but not against the nib). My new favorite of the smoothies.
Exceptional customer service and very friendly staff. Any questions and needs you have will be answered by their lovely, thoughtful online service team. I will be using Yamamoto paper-san for all of my specialty paper needs! 😃😃😃
The paper was ordered, shipped and delivered from Japan to UT, USA in exactly 7 days. This was extraordinary timing for an international package. Upon opening the package of three different 50 page loose leaf packs I was astonished at the care taken in wrapping. It was gift wrapped with really nice wrapping paper and the three individual 50 page packages were in perfect condition. Champion Copy 35gsm A4 50Sheets Bank Paper 48.2gsm A4 50Sheets Typewriter Paper 27.9gsm A4 50Sheets As of now the Bank Paper is my favorite but each of these are unique and have their own qualities.
The first time I tried this typewriter paper, I thought it was too flimsy and crinkly. Then I realized how beautifully it holds ink. Now it is one of my favorites and I use it a lot for my own weird letter writing shop. This paper is a dream to use with fountain pens. Highly recommended.
