Quick Delivery to my door
from Bellingham, WA
Getting my Arches Text Wove paper from Dick Blick is extremely convenient. The paper is a wonderful product for the hand bound books that I make and I can usually get it delivered to my house free. My only star takeaway is that the large sheets are packed in sets of 5 which are then sealed in plastic. The extra handling of those large sheets always leaves the paper dented or creased in places due to less than very careful handling. Then in my order of 200 sheets I have 40 very large plastic bags! I'd love to just get a bulk order of 200 sheets without the extra handling and plastic. Is that possible?
Merchant response: Thank you for your feedback! At this time, the only packaging option available from our importer is the 5-sheet packages you received — a bulk option is not available. However, if you receive damaged sheets from us, we're more than happy to replace those for you. Just give us a call at 1-800-723-2787, and our Customer Care Agents will take good care of you!
Blick is the Best!
from Merrick, NY
Arches makes an exceptional product and Blick made it even better by offering a sale. I was a little worried about shipping the large sheets of Text Wove paper, but Blick came through with excellent packaging. There wasn't a wrinkle or dent in any of the sheets.
Excellent value, superior shipping
from San Jose, CA
Thank you for the fast and excellent shipping. Great paper!
My favorite paper!
from Salem OR
I love this paper - it is ideal for so many projects. It is really tough too - one can even turn the hose on it and if one doesn't like what one has done! Best of all it tears beautifully which makes it ideal for books.
Do buy paper in bulk from Dick Blick
By Letter Lady
When you order paper, it comes flat, between cardboard, bound with plastic film, enclosed in cardboard. Great for storing it, and no chance of wrinkling.
I will always buy this product.
from Annapolis MD
My favorite go-to paper for calligraphy and book arts, as well as paste paper and sheets heavily painted with multiple layers of acrylics and other media.Additional comment: I was impressed with how carefully the order was shipped. These were large sheets and they arrived in perfect condition.
from St. Louis, MO
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.

Wonderful paper at a great price
By Kasey Potzler
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.
