Love that BFK
from Staten Island, NY
I like BFK Rives printmaking paper best for the heavily embossed collagraphs I do. It is flexible but very strong and holds up well with really tight pressure on the press.

I use this paper for my etchings and other intaglio techniques. The paper is perfect quality.
High Quality Printmaking Paper
from San Francisco/ Turlock CA
I use this for Printmaking, specifically lithography, using oil based ink and it is great! great weight, color, and easy to work with. I'm sure you can use it for other things that require heavyweight paper :)
from Kihei, Maui

my favorite all purpose printmaking paper
from Taos NM
I use BFK Rives for mono print, monotypes and best of all to make excellent collagraphs. With just a little soaking the prints come out clear and crisp. It's my go-to paper for reliable results.
from Grand Junction
Using this paper in handmade books as signaturesThis is excellent quality paper
Thin but works as intented
from Hermon, Maine
Ordered this paper for a printmaking class I am currently taking. Although the paper is thinner than I thought it would be it is holding up well to being immersed in water and run through the press over a copper etched plate and a plexiglas monoprint.
Great weight for many mediums
By Studio D
from Philadelphia, PA
This paper has a beautiful texture and hold up perfectly even when completely covered in layers of acrylic paint. No curling at all! I've layered acrylic toning, spattering, painting and pastels. Great weight and deckle edges!
Great paper (well worth the money)
I mainly use this BFK Rives for monotype, fantastic results. Worth every penny. I do use for drypoint etchings as well with great results.
