Welcome to dickblick
Arches papers aren't just for watercolors. Use them also for drawing, calligraphy, gouache, printmaking, acrylics, and even digital printing. Manufactured from pure cotton fiber, they are so durable that they will remain beautiful and vibrant for centuries without conservation, if stored and handled properly.
Many artists say they choose Arches because working on an inferior surface just isn't worth the effort. And no other watercolor paper provides such a huge selection of sizes, surfaces, and formats for creative expression.
Arches Bright White is mouldmade without optical brighteners or bleaches. The pulp is brighter than the Natural White Sheet, thus showing colors more intensely from the surface.
This paper features two deckle edges, two waterline edges, and a watermark. This sheet offers the same durability and strength as the Natural White sheet. Just like the original Arches, it is acid-free, pH-neutral, gelatin-sized, and air-dried. Both 140 lb (300 gsm) and 300 lb (640 gsm) weights are available.
Handling Charge — When ordering sheets of paper or board larger than 18” x 24” in quantities of less than 10, a $3.00 per order handling fee applies. Paper or boards may be assorted to reach the quantity of 10.

I love Dick Blick ... I get all of my supplies there and they always come promptly and are a great value!
from Zachary, La
These pencils provide the best of all drawing requirements - they are easy to layer and build color upon, the provide crisp detail, they blend real well, and most of the colors are lightfast...discovering these changed the level of my work
This paper provides good tooth for pencil drawings, while withstanding the rigors of paint thinner, erasing and pulling tape. Also, moisture doesn't seem to warp the paper very often, but if it does, just lay something flat and heavy on it and it'll straighten back out nicely...I used to use illustration board, but not anymore!
Tried and True
By Wildlife Watercolor Artists
Arches is always my go to for watercolor paper. I usually purchase the 300# but by mistake ordered the #140. I was surprised by its durability. Great paper.
Favorite paper for transparent media
from Houston, Texas
This paper best for washes using transparent watercolors and I found it to be the best for rough treatment using substraction, scrubbing, scraching, sandpaper, masking etc.

300 lb. paper is forgiving and gratifying. It can hold lots of water without getting wavy. Substantial enough for painting without a backboard.
Best quality watercolor paper.
from St. Louis MO
I have tried other watercolor papers and they just don't have the same consistency as Arches. I use fluid acrylic paints as though they are watercolors. The paper just does what I want it to do. The edges deckle beautifully!
Love Doing Business with Blick
from Sacramento CA
I bought a large number of Arches cold press watercolor paper which I regularly use for teaching. The paper arrives in the perfect size packaging that makes it really easy to store in my studio so that I can take out what I need as I need it. I needed this batch quickly and Blick met my needs. Sure it cost a little bit extra, but the volume discount is so great that even when I add the extra shipping costs, the value is still really good. Thanks BLICK. Love doing business with you!
Better than other paper
from Catawissa mo
