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.

I am a hard edged watercolorist. I use this paper for it's fine texture, strength and durability. Even though the paper I often use is hot press, it is forgiving and a joy to work with. Compared to other more expensive papers this is the equivalent.

Arches is Best
By Cozy Wozerson
from Orange County, CA
You get what you pay for. Arches is all I ever use, and it's the best paper for watercolor and ink washes. Period.One star knocked off for Blick, as the paper was not wrapped before packaging and it has scuffs from the cardboard. Erasable, and not worth the returns process as it's otherwise unharmed, but I'll order it in packs next time (which at the time of my purchase Blick did not offer).

One of my favorites, but hard to use the whole sheet.
from South Carolina
I love this paper for graphite and colored pencil drawings. The paper itself would receive 5 stars from me but it would be nice if there was a way to buy large sheets of paper without huge dents and buckles though. When buying in sheets they always seem to arrive in a condition that only allows use of half of the sheet.

I love Arches Watercolor Paper
By Gary W
from St Simons, Ga
I love Arches watercolor paper, both 140 and 300 lb. Arches is more rugged than other paper I have tried. I can stretch 140 lb. Arches to keep it drum tight without worry about ripping it, and It also takes vigorous scrubbing when I need to make a corrections.
