Comments about FIDELITY Onion Skin White Paper - 8 1/2 x 11 in 9 lb Bond Smooth 500 per Ream:
I was searching for that thin typewriting paper I remembered from my High School typing class, the one you see in old movies where the police are shuffling through documents. I live in NYC and thought for sure a stationery store, typewriter repair store, or high-end office supply would stock this 9 lb. paper. WRONG ! The closest I found were blue airmail paper that were only sold in kits with envelopes for a lot of $$$ per page. Delighted to find it here.

The paper works like a dream, writing on it with a typewriter or pen. I've been tearing it in half and sending out delicate letters.

Comments about FIDELITY Onion Skin White Paper - 8 1/2 x 11 in 9 lb Bond Smooth 500 per Ream:
I use the product for making my own Midori Traveler's Notebooks inserts as well as paper for writing to friends.

There is bleed-through, but it doesn't stain the papers that follow. Obviously because the paper is fairly sheer that you cannot write on the backside once you've written on the front.

If you love noisy and crinkle-y paper, this stuff is for you. I love the feel and texture. My fountain pen nib glides over the surface and does not catch on anything.

I love this paper and will be getting another ream very shortly.

Comments about FIDELITY Onion Skin White Paper - 8 1/2 x 11 in 9 lb Bond Smooth 500 per Ream:
I ordered this after receiving several pen pal letters with this paper. It has intrigued me for months now and I finally made the purchase. After researching prices online, this was the best value, with the $5 coupon for new customers. Shipping was more expensive than I expensive but overall, it still ended up being cheaper than any other onion skin paper online. This ream will last me a year or more, I think! I use fountain pens for correspondence and the inks are more saturated so see-through is an issue, which is why I can only use one side per page. The "crinkling" sound of this paper is part of the unique writing experience and novelty. This paper will be great for international letters, where weight is an issue. Overall, I really like onion skin paper and will finding ways to use this in my letter writing!

Comments about FIDELITY Onion Skin White Paper - 8 1/2 x 11 in 9 lb Bond Smooth 500 per Ream:
I bought this paper a couple years ago, thinking I'd use it for tracing paper; this is probably the best tracing paper I've ever used. Now I'm getting into quilting, and something I wanted to try was paper piecing. This paper works very well - it's translucent, tears away easily and well... in short, it's everything I could have wanted, and at a much lower price than what's sold in quilt shops. I wish I could get it in a bigger size, but for most applications, US Letter is fine.

Real Writing - By Hand
Comments about FIDELITY Onion Skin White Paper - 8 1/2 x 11 in 9 lb Bond Smooth 500 per Ream:
This isn't exactly what I was hoping for...real onionskin as in "the old days" as recently as the 1980's or even later. It is a close approximation. It's very lightweight and has a good hand, but it's smooth. Real Onionskin is textured, wrinkly, and maybe even thinner. But since you had to go to Europe (of course) to get this paper from Germany, I'm as happy as I can be with it.

If you start to make it here again, I am very sure that artists, writers, fountain pen advocates, and lots of folks will be very happy. Think about it!

This is a beautiful paper. I was a bit skeptical because I have always used 100% cotton. This is not a substiture or an imitation of 100% cotton. It is something entirely different. The texture changes with the light. The paper feels crisp and strong. It is truly translucent but not actually transparent. It is an unusual and unique paper and I will buy more. I really like it. It is the paper I always wanted but could never find. Graphite and colored pencils blend well and only the heaviest dripping markers bleed through.

My parents used this paper. My dad was overseas and I grew up with it. I got tired the 16 mile round-trip to the post office to check if my letters are overweight, quite often they are. Not only am I'm paying extra postage and wasting over an hour of time, there is the price of gas to consider. I have close friends in Europe and the USA not on line -- we write and this stuff is great for long letters. I also mail manuscripts and large documents sometimes, onion skin saves money and space. What used to fit into a box now goes easily into an envelope. The problem is that it is difficult to find and very overpriced.

Comments about FIDELITY Onion Skin White Paper - 8 1/2 x 11 in 9 lb Bond Smooth 500 per Ream:
I found this paper reviewed on a popular pen forum and decided to take a chance. I had found a few months ago a great bagasse paper that has similar properties to this pape, most likely because they both lack the wood (tree) fibers. With the bagasse's low availability and poor quality control I was looking for a replacement and I am happy to have found it in this paper. I was surprised to find that with the 10 or so inks used on this paper none of them feathered, though it also doesn't allow for great ink shading. You can actually pour ink on it and it will NOT soak through, it just puddles. I think the paper weight is also a plus (especially for foreign correspondence). For me it is a unique experience to write on something that is so thin but incredibly strong, and the paper crinkling is a nice bonus too, very vintage. Though it seems people have had problems with printer jams, I think it is the fault of the paper weight and NOT the paper. The jams I get from wood pulp paper leave shredded, ripped, and mutilated pieces for me to discover. Not so with this durable paper it wrinkles but doesn't rip. The paper color is nice subtle ivory color. It is translucent like tracing paper (one can use a guide sheet underneath). However, it is more opaque so when there is another written sheet beneath it (especially if not pressed firmly flat upon it) the writing is still highly legible. The paper does have a cockle finish, but it is subtle. The only real drawback for me with this paper is the texture. Though the paper is by no means rough, it is also not super smooth, and it is consistent throughout. I like to write with a fine or extra fine nib, so the rougher texture of this paper gives a "scratchier" sound than the smoother papers I am used to. Be that as it, one would think that with the scratching the cotton fibers would clog my fountain pen, but this is not the case. I have written countless pages with no problems. All in all I will be buying more of this paper and would welcome anyone else to try it.

Comments about FIDELITY Onion Skin White Paper - 8 1/2 x 11 in 9 lb Bond Smooth 500 per Ream:
I'm quite happy I ordered a ream of the all cotton "onion skin" paper. Its really fun paper to play with.

I ordered the paper so I could print a large number of pages but still fit them in a skinny portfolio.

The printing process was quite painful. Most laser printers would only print a page or two before jamming (the jams where often cause because the paper is so thin that either multiple sheets got pulled in together and one of them went off track or only some of the feed rollers grabbed the paper, causing it to twist and to crumple)

Amazingly, even though it often jammed the paper never ripped, it would always pull out of the printer whole (... covered with uncooked toner).

I had the best luck with a tiny home laser printer (the hp laserjet 1100) it has an almost straight down feed, and I could often get 20 or so pages through before I had a jam.

The pain, however, had a payoff. The pages I did get through were beautiful, it really is amazing paper. I mounted 36 printed pages 2 hole paper wallet (a "goldfold"), and everyone I showed it to was just amazed by the paper (both visually and tactilely - slightly clear, makes a "crinkling" sound when handled, slightly sticky to the touch)

All in all its good stuff.

Comments about FIDELITY Onion Skin White Paper - 8 1/2 x 11 in 9 lb Bond Smooth 500 per Ream:
No, it's not cockle-finished like the classic onion skin papers of old, but it does have a very usable surface, with good "pseudo"-cockling. I bought it for my typewriter and it works fine for typing, but I was surprised how well it works when using good quality inks, like J. Herbin's Perle Noire. The Paper Mill Store shipped fast, too. Highly recommended.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about FIDELITY Onion Skin White Paper - 8 1/2 x 11 in 9 lb Bond Smooth 500 per Ream:
I had been searching on [...] for over a month and kept getting outbid because I did not think I could find onion skin paper for actual letter writing anymore. I was so tired of being outbid that I google searched and found the paper mill, I got twice the paper for the price I was bidding [...]
Merchant response: As the C.E.O. of The Paper Mill Store I am very happy you found us. We purchased the last stocks from the old Esleeck paper mill in New England who was the last manufacturer of true onion skin that I know. When these stocks are gone that's it forever.

I looked in many shops in several cities, never finding onionskin paper until I stumbled across your website. I love the paper! Its elegant feel takes ink beautifully, and I appreciate the paper's feel. I use it to write letters to people I love. Paper is one of my favorite toys, so imagine my delight when I realized that the paper also folds well for origami.

BEST USES
Letter writing
Comments about FIDELITY Onion Skin White Paper - 8 1/2 x 11 in 9 lb Bond Smooth 500 per Ream:
I collect and use fountain pens, both modern and "vintage," exclusively for writing letters. Yes, I'm one of those strange people who actually hand-write letters to my friends; and I have pen-pals all over the world, from the U.S. to England, Israel, Australia, and the Philippines. In addition to fountain pens, I also collect different inks in a rainbow of colors. I do NOT use ballpoints or rollerballs.

Most modern papers, especially those made from recycled material, are unfortunately horrible for fountain pens and inks. The ink feathers, spreads, and bleeds through; and the papers themself shed fibers that get stuck in the tines of the pen's nib.

I wasn't sure how this paper would act with fountain pens and ink, so I ordered a sample pack first. I was absolutely blown away! This paper is about as perfect as paper can get! It's lightweight for those overseas letters, and it has happily taken all varieties of inks from many different makes of pens with absolutely no bleed-through and no feathering. It is pure joy to use! I was so happy with my samples, I ordered a ream.

Onion skin paper is scarcer than hens' teeth, so I was both flabbergasted and delighted to find a place that still sells it; and I was even more delighted to discover that it's absolutely WONDERFUL to use with my fountain pens. I've been recommending this paper to my pen pals, all of whom have been impressed with its beautiful finish and the way it takes ink. (We like very white paper because it shows off the colors of our inks, and this paper shows them exquisitely!)

Please don't ever stop carrying this paper!

Comments about FIDELITY Onion Skin White Paper - 8 1/2 x 11 in 9 lb Bond Smooth 500 per Ream:
I've used it for regular text in order to cut down on document thickness. Twenty-five lb. paper will make a 2000 page document much too thick to fit into a single binder. A serious problem for me. This papers top quality allows me to use it in my inkjet printer when other light weight paper only jams.
