I have used this paper for years and will continue to do so
from San Francisco, CA
Comments about Canson Rives Printmaking Papers:
Originally I used this paper for printmaking; for years I've been using it for drawing. It holds up beautifully to acrylics, gessos, and gels as well as colored pencil and of course litho ink. I've tried other printmaking papers, but I like Rives BFK best.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Best paper for printing etchings!

BFK has the whitest white of any paper made for printing etchings.
My favorite printmaking paper!

As a printmaker, this is my favorite paper. It is durable with a great feel, and holds up to my processes which include soaking it in water.

this is my fall back printing paper

I use this for intaglio printing. The paper holds up well to the printing process and the ink lays well on the paper
Great Quality and Packaging
from Houston, Tx
Needed this for an art final and was worried it'd get crumpled in the mail since its one sheet but packaging was perfect and the sheet was well protected and great quality for an ink painting.
LOVE the BFK Rives Gray paper
By Aquinnah Heart
from Martha's Vineyard
The color and thickness of this paper is the best of any printmaking paper I have used. I ordered 5 sheets as an experiment (I have piles of cream colored paper I use) and have hardly touched the cream since. It's a really nice light hue that seems to accent all colors. Good thickness and holds ink well.
