Figured I'd make a new topic for this, since the other one is supposed to be about where it's available in Winnipeg.

In either case... I did some testing of Rite-in-the-rain copier paper vs. regular copier paper. I've got more tests that I've taken pictures of, and some to actually do... but I've got a fair number of them shown at the link above.

Currently detailed (typically with four pen types, both papers):
Smear test - dry/wet/wet for up to 1 hour
Wetness testing - writing while wet
Wetness testing 2 (all-weather only) - wet for 1 hour, 8 hours, 38 hours, run through a washing machine/dryer
Crumple testing - write after being crumpled, then wet, then recrumpled, re-wet for an hour/8 hours/etc.
Extreme temperatures testing - boiling, freezing, and burning, both dry and wet (well, except for boiling... hard to dry-boil something)


More to come... I'll post in this topic when new things come up.

This just in: there's several situations in which regular paper outperforms all-weather paper! One by leaps and bounds!

Check the different fluids tests, now up.

Random note... if anyone was ever interested in these paper tests, I'm adding to it a little bit more. Right now I'm seeing how both papers hold up being soaked in either bleach or Drano.

Just figured I'd post an update to this, since it's been forever until I got around to doing this part.

EDIT: Bleach/Drano test is up, as well as the paper airplane test:

Bleach and Drano
