Freeleaf Multicolored Annotation Ruled Pads LTR
Multicolored - Multiprojects
Firstly, the Multicolored tablets are just fun to have & five colors instead of one is great. But on the practical side, I make use of the different colors to assign seperate projects.
Secondly, the format of the paper is simular to the Cornell note-taking system. There are any number of ways to customize your own style of using these notepads.
Then there are a few things that really stand out about these pages; they do tear out very easily & cleanly, the lines being in gray are truely better on the eyes, the weight of the paper prevents any bleedthrough even using a broad nib fountain pen so you can write on both sides of the page and the pages are easier to punch holes in and not crimp.
However, the one thing I found that was a bit of a surprise and disapointment was writing on this paper with my fountain pen. Although it is 90 gsm, it isn't like the other brands of 90 gsm I use. It just is not as smooth and I've tried several pens, inks and nib sizes. Other than that, these tablets are a good purchase.

excellent weight paper
It is getting increasingly difficult to find good quality paper with a heavier weight. This Freeleaf paper fits the bill perfectly. I use it to take notes on the pad, and tear off pages and punch holes to use in 3 ring binders as well. It isn't flimsy and is a pleasure to use. The colors are easy on the eyes and not harsh as some lesser quality color pads.

These notepads are fabulous! The weight of the paper is heavy enough that what I write on one side does not bleed through to the other side, making note taking so much more efficient. I can even highlight on one side and not have the highlighter run through to the other. The individual sheets rip cleanly, which means no worries about ripping through important info at the top of the page. I'm getting more as gifts for my colleagues.

I find these to be a wonderful writing tool for my profession. I can take notes, write essays and make insertions on the large side margins. As an educator, I think these are wonderful.

I'm one of those dinosaurs who does her taxes on paper. These pads are great for distinguishing among different schedules and sources of income. The lines, columns, and headings allow clear drafts of those infernal worksheets. And perfect files: clear and durable. I'd be lost without them.

I love these pads and ordered a second set. The paper feels good, takes ink well and I can't say enough about the great colors except it would be nice to order multiples of single colors. Once again Levenger has another unique product that can be found nowhere else - thank you!

These pads are high quality, with a good feel. Having the different colors is a plus. They are easy to write on, easy to read.

Colors are so much better than office supply color
The colors of the paper are so much easier on the eye than the colored pads available at typical office supply stores. The thickness of the paper is good as well - no bleed through from pens.

Great with fountain pens
I love the thickness of the paper. Fountain pen ink does not bleed through. Also great for writing on the go because the paper does not shift while you're writing like thinner paper will.

Some colors too dark
This paper is just too stiff for my liking, and only the yellow and peach colors contrast well enough with a finepoint pen. The gray is sort of depressing.
