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.

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.
Arches Bright White
from Fort Wayne, IN
I had been using the standard Arches paper. Thought I'd try the bright white. Love the bright!
Packaged nicely. I am a huge fan of arches watercolor paper. Great quality.
Arches is one of my he best watercolor papers available, and this was the best deal out there for me and my students!
I always buy this product
from great falls, montana
This paper free of defects or imperfections which is critical in watercolor painting. The paint always flows smoothly onto the paper with no unwanted surprises. This product also is very resilient and tolerates scrubbing to remove color for example.
Best Deal I could find!
I haven't used the rough paper before. My experiments so far are good.
