Finding the right writing paper for Christmas is a delicate thing.
The design or look of the paper is important at Christmas.
You need to decide if you’re looking for something more whimsical (like a paper decorated in a Christmas theme) or a paper that is more traditional.
Simple colors rule the holidays–unless you’re planning on writing your hand written project on red and green striped paper, Christmas letters and other Christmas projects look best on so called “natural” colored paper or a creamy, interesting shade of white.
A good writing paper turns something ordinary into something memorable, and even if you are only writing a simple letter to a friend, choosing quality writing paper shows that you care about the letter, the contents, and the friend.
Best Writing Paper The best writing paper is made by companies with a long tradition of making paper. Lalo make the “best writing paper”, although the paper you like the best may be something a bit more affordable, a little less traditional, or a bit funkier than the offerings of those companies. Quality writing paper generally has a satin finish that allows for smoothness in feel and while you’re writing. Good writing paper should be acid-free so that the paper doesn’t degrade over time.
Still, the “best” writing paper tends to be opaque. If you’re buying white or “natural” paper, make sure it is chlorine-free.
Anything else is not good enough for a special writing project.
