Comments about Arches Text Wove Sheets:
The only reason I gave four stars is that I have not tried a large number of other papers. This is recommended by my calligraphy teacher, a professional, to many of her different classes. We have used it for illumination projects with watercolor, gouache and different types of ink as well as for italic and uncial. It does not bleed or feather, even when using Parallel pens and dip pens. I like it for illumination items to be framed. I have used it with stick ink, gold watercolor ink, walnut ink, etc. It is easily folded and torn into smaller pieces. I find it too textured to be used with fine nibs, but it works well with broader ones.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Wonderful paper at a great price
By Kasey Potzler
from Bellingham, WA
I've used Arches Text wove in my blank hand bound journals for years. Love that it is a wonderful surface for pen, ink, pencil and watercolor. Also love that Blicks prices with the sale are excellent and they ship this heavy stuff to me quickly for FREE!
My first choice.
from Chicago, Ill
Arches text wove is THE go to paper for many calligraphy projects from broadsides to handmade books. It handles the inks, gouache and watercolor with ease. It has a beautiful surface and it a great base for paste paper techniques.

In a recent mixed media class by Jacqueline Sullivan, we used this paper with paste paint. This paper provided a very nice painting surface.
Exactly what i wanted
from Ann Arbor, MI
Ordered a large number of sheets, no creases in the paper, came on time. The packaging was very nice.
My favorite paper for everything
By Printing Granny
from Salt Lake City
Arches Text Wove is my Go-T0 paper for calligraphy, book arts, and even printmaking. It takes water media beautifully, and is extremely strong. I've scrunched it, drenched it, ironed it, and it always turns out better than I expected.
Nice texture for drawing
I only wish this paper were heavier. Unless you are careful, it will bend and get dimples where it creases from handling. Otherwise, I've used this paper before love the texture for detailed pencil drawings. It's got enough tooth that the shadows will stay laminated or not block up, yet it is smooth enough to have some good detail for landscape, nature items and such.
Beautiful Paper for interior of books
from Floyds Knobs, IN
I used this paper in a book project I taught at a State Conference. Students painted washes of water color over lines they had drawn with a white grease pencil. This paper is great for painting on both sides and not having it bleed through.
Great product, Awesome service

Arches Text Wove,always an excellent product, is my primary paper in my handbound books. Dick Blick's sale and free shipping and delivery to my doorstep means I will definitely be a repeat customer!
Arches Text Wove paper
from Glendale CA
I use text wove for broadside calligraphic pieces, background paintings for collage, etc. in making hand sewn books. It takes water color, acrylic, and other water soluble products very well and is generally quite tough though the resulting paper is rather soft, almost like fabric. I love working with it.
