Clairefontaine Triomphe Overview

I do a basic overview of the delectable Clairefontaine Triomphe stationary tablets and envelopes. Triomphe has been around for about 60 years, and is the premier stationary in the world for fountain pen usage. The paper is 90g, and has an almost miraculous ability to repel ink, keeping any ink from feathering, bleeding through, or echoing (showing through on the backside). The paper is ultra-white, and is known as some of the smoothest paper in the world. There are two different sizes of Triomphe, and A4 and A5 size with envelopes to match. The paper comes 50 sheets to a tablet, with a glue binding at the top with the intention of having each sheet easily torn out of the tablet. The envelopes themselves are also 90g, extremely fountain pen friendly, slightly textured, and self-sealing. Keep your tongue in your mouth!
