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.

Beautiful and Strong
from San Miguel de Allende, MX
Comments about Arches Bright White Watercolor Paper:
Arches 300 lb watercolor paper is a great substrate for painting with encaustic. It has beautiful texture and great strength, and is rigid and absorbent. My only complaints: I wish it had four deckle edges, and was available in a smaller size. This is wonderful paper, and I highly recommend it.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

AMAZING PAPER, CAN NEVER GO WRONG WITH THIS PAPER. 300 WEIGHT IS THE BEST. IT ALWAYS MAKES MY EFFORTS LOOK THEIR BEST!

I CONSIDER ARCHES PAPER TO BE TOP OF THE LINE. GREAT PAPER TO PAINT ON.THE PROPER PAPER IS KEY TO A SUCCESSFUL PAINTING AND ARCHES IS THE BEST!!!
Great Product, Great Price, Gfreat Service
I have foungd thtat Arches is the best watercolor papers on the market. Their product is consistent in quality. Bright white is also my favored choice in watercolor paper, Colors appear more vivid next to the white of the paper. The paper has just the right amount of tooth and corrections can be easily as needed. ILove this paper.
Best Service By Blick
from Sa Jose
Blick service leads the online art supply market with quick and efficient ordering and shipping. My peers agree.I like the rough bright white watercolor paper as it enhances luminosity of color and creates more texture action between paper and brush.

Arches 300# hot press
from Durham, NC
I am in a botanical illustration program and the instructors want us to ONLY use Arches 300# hot press paper, as it's the only one that can handle the level of detail that is required. The closest store that carries it is 40 minutes away, and the last time I bought a sheet there it was not in good shape, probably because it had been collecting dust on a shelf. I was nervous about ordering such a big, delicate item online, but the paper came well packed, and the delivery person had the sense to put it on the porch and not leave it out in the rain.
See why Arches is one of the world's leading watercolor papers. This video provides the viewer an understanding of the papermaking process and what makes Arches special in addition to its long history.
