Doggoned Good Paper!
(From a non-tech user you expect erudition?) How did I get here? Once upon a time, I cruised eBay for the best deal I could find on tracing paper for a non-tech application. Found a vendor. Purchased 2 monster rolls of their HP product. Hoped for the best. Got the best--this vellum-like paper is great (HP really knows their stuff)! Q: What's so great about this product? A: Ease of use for drafting in a non-tech-related arena. My story: I'm a fledgling quilt-maker and member of a small quilting group that just made its first big sale via a donation to a local charity’s private auction. Our current project? Drafting vest patterns for individual interpretation by each fiber artist. We drafted patterns for everyone, then traced them onto HP’s tracing paper for permanent slopers (i.e., non-tissue paper patterns). Pattern pieces are easy to pin to fabric, plus its transparency is superior for alining pattern pieces with fabric grain-lines. It’s obvious the slopers will hold up over time when stored flat in individual portfolios. Point to consider about tech products: There are large numbers of tech-related products that can easily serve more than one use and/or user. Reckon Hewlett-Packard didn’t count on a small group of quilters purchasing their tracing paper; however, after this review, perhaps more individuals, groups and/or guilds will think twice about paying more, then flood eBay vendors and/or HP’s Customer Service lines. Never thought I'd purchase paper from HP's product list. But I did. And I will again. In a minute!
