All Prim Planner inserts can come in one of 4 different Prim Paper types.
Why All the choices? Well, because, just like some days need more paper than others, some inserts require more lush paper than others. Some people want to be able to use inky porous tipped pens…others just want to use a plain black ball point. There are so many options because there are so many people with so many different needs and uses. Which one is best for you?
I tested all 4 of the papers with some of the more popular pens on the market right now, including the Papermate Flair, Ink Joy roller ball, Staedtler Triplus Fineliner, Sharpie no bleed pen, Foray Stylemark, Le Pen, Sharpie Ultra Fine Permanent, Hi-Tec-C Maica, Frixion .7 and an essenti soft highlighter with 2 passes over the text (writen in the black Maica)
As you can see, the bleed through, shadowing, and imprinting varies greatly from page to page and ink to ink.
Our Luxe Paper is a 65lb, bright white, cardstock
Though a thicker, more bulky paper for inside a planner…
This would be the ideal choice for anyone with a strong aversion to bleed through and shadowing. Its the ideal paper type for planners that double as a decorative space. The luxe papers hold up to stamping, highlighting, and all porous tip pens. Even the sharpie ultra fine permanent markers can be used on this paper with minimal bleed through.
Our Standard Paper is a 28lb, 100% bright white bond paper
The ideal paper for planners, it adds no bulk, has a lush creamy finish, allows ink color to jump off the page with brightness
And stands up to all porous tip pens with no bleed through and little shadowing.
The Slim paper is made of a 20lb, 96% bright white bond paper
This paper is ideal for smaller planners, those looking for a more economical insert or for planner stuffers that want to get as many pages as possible between their rings.
As you can see the slim papers do not hold up as well to most porous pen types and leave considerable shadowing, but if you are a plain black pen writer, this just might be the paper for you!
Want to add some color to your time management? Try the Color Paper Inserts. 20lb pastel bond paper in 5 shades (Pink, yellow, goldenrod, green & blue)
Perfect for brightening your pages if you are a non color coder!
Though the colored paper does not stand up as well as the others to the porous tip pens, it is another ideal choice for a plain black pen, and roller ball pen lover. (Colored paper inserts can come in whatever combination or single shade you would like)
