Papier plus ultra
This is the finest paper I've ever used, and I am a self-proclaimed paper elitist. Regardless of pen used, the paper and the ink make love to one another.
ProsFlawless paper, and the hand feel all others want to be. The 1961 ferrari, the patek phillipe of papers.
ConsNothing, except 50 a sheet would be a bargain.

Amalfi stationery will never be old.
This stationery is, and has been for many years, the Best in my cabinet for the letters I write. There is no pen-ink combination, and I've used many, that isn't enhanced by it.
ProsThe texture allows any of my ink pens to glide over the surface and lay down a rich, consistent line and letter form. The blotter qualify is perfect for accentuating center words and letters. And people have related their experience of the touch in their hand while reading a letter on it.
ConsOnly available by mail order, BUT, Vickery had it delivered 2 days after I ordered it online. Probably a shorter time than if I'd have gone to a store.

The Finest Paper Available
I first discovered Amalfi papers during a long stay in Switzerland. It is beautifully made, takes ink incredibly, and look and feels worth twice the price. I'm glad Vickerey offers it online.

Hopes fulfilled, expectations realized!
Handwritten letters are far more personal than any other form of communication aside from face-to-face conversation. They reveal a side to the writer that may not have been intended but which adds to our understanding and appreciation of that writer's persona. A handwritten letter is best when it's been written on rare, unique and very special paper. Amalfi Watermarked Stationery IS that rare, unique and very special paper. I was also very pleased that a sheet of this paper, when folded in quarters, fit the envelope provided perfectly. I'll be back for more.

A happy customer,
