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.
Shipping Note — Due to manufacturer distribution restrictions, Arches products cannot be shipped to addresses outside of North America.

It's the only paper I have used for twenty years!
By Susan of Mountain Arts
from Corinth, ME
Comments about Arches Bright White Watercolor Paper:
I paint traditionally and nontraditionally with water media. I choose Arches paper for its superiorquality in texture and durability, especially as I used many layers of color in developing my concepts. This requires several drying time cycles and color overlays from beginning to completion for any onepiece, and the paper retains its texture and form.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Great for watercolor and pen and ink
from Philadelphia, PA
This paper is great for a combination of watercolors and permanent black ink. I use a Rotring rapidograph and color the drawings in with watercolors. The paper maintains the brightness of the watercolor paints and at the same time maintains the sharpness of the ink without bleeding.
