All Viking paper pads have robust, durable covers with an irresistible metallic look. Most pads are landscape format, but they're also perfect in portrait. The paper is glued on 1 or 2 sides, and the backing is made of 3 mm heavy robust board.
Viking paper pads are manufactured in Denmark. The Viking brand was registered in 1913, and the first Danish pencils were produced shortly thereafter. The Viking company subsequently grew into a large company with an international reputation for its flawless designs, high quality and excellent craftsmanship. The company went through a rather lacklustre period after 1970, due to a takeover by a Swedish matchstick company who had other products in mind then pencils or stationary.
In 2010, Jens Myhren Thomsen took over the reins of the business. He lost no time in taking the company back to its roots. The key to Viking’s success became a winning combination of Danish design, Danish production and the Scandinavian principle of simplicity, beauty and pure lines, with the emphasis on product quality, functionality and durability. Viking 1914 offers professional paper that is excellent for fountain pens and other creative applications.
