– Judges’ Comments –

“When we write something in a notebook, we usually write on white paper. However, this stationery has broken free from that conventional idea. Because it uses gray paper, you can write with white pencils as well as the traditional black pens and pencils, so now, you can draw sketches with highlights. This broadens the horizons of expression, letting you give your drawings more solidity and contrast. As such, it’s an innovative product that will draw out your creativity.”
