When you purchase this item, you'll receive a 1/8 pound bundle of original vintage blank paper book pages and similar blanks with varying amounts of foxing & toning. Perfect for block prints, line art, and letter writing.

Pages that are blank on one side have writing, text, or illustrations on the other (pictured is a representative sample of what you might find on the non-blank side).

The blank on both sides option is self explanatory.

We may throw in an unconventional piece or two to keep things interesting and prompt creative uses...and we ship these batches in paper sleeves pulled from old record jackets -- bonus paper that we hope you'll also find ways to reuse.

Blank pages accumulate slowly compared to some of our other page assortments. We rely on the sales of other paper assortments to accumulate the blank end (and end-of-chapter) pages. Given the high quality pulp content and surface texture of papers made many decades ago, we've found them to be a surprise hit, and a high demand item among artists, writers, and prop stylists.

    This is climate-competent commerce, and we talk a bit more about each of these strategies on our 'official' shipping policy page:

    The Fine Print 
  • Proactive Satisfaction + Refunds

    We have adopted a 'generally generous' approach to fulfilling many of our product listings, as sending a wee bit extra can avoid costly errors & 'fix it' shipments (besides, we find most folks appreciate the occasional freebie).


    That said, if you would prefer to avoid the extras, we will gladly rightsize or downsize your order on request (product price would remain the same because more labor + less product = wash). If you prefer this option, please include a detailed order note to specify the quantity you wish to recieve (i.e. 'please send precise count of 7 for XYZ product').


    As a rule, we discourage returns - but we also don't abide crappy customer experiences. To initiate issue resolution in the event that we miss the boat with your order (gaps happen!), head to our refund policy page (linked here - and at the bottom of any page) to get started.
