NEW Fabriano 1264 Pad Range


Fabriano 1264 logo






Fabriano is Europe’s oldest paper mill, and invented watermarks and surface-sizing.

This range of pads is named after the year Fabriano began: 1264. All papers in the 1264 range are acid-free and archival, the pulp comes from FSC forests, and 60% of power used comes from renewable sources. 


Fabriano 1264 Pads

Fabriano 1264 offers seven paper qualities in distinctive branding to suit a wide range of drawing and painting applications. Each paper is distinguished by a bold cover colour, with information contained on the inside leaf.

These papers are bound in generous volumes, providing excellent value per sheet, with a double metal spiral, except in the Marker and Bristol which are glued on the short side – also an option in the Sketch Pad. All spiral bound pads feature a micro-perforation, so sheets are easily and cleanly detached for presentation.
