LOVE the BFK Rives Gray paper
By Aquinnah Heart
from Martha's Vineyard
Comments about Canson Rives Printmaking Papers:
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.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

A very good paper
from Milwaukee, WI
Have been using it for many years.
I have purchased Rives BFK from Dick Blick many times.
from Muncie, Indiana
I purchase Rives BFK for student use to encourage them to always think about using professional grade materials.
Good quality printing paper for a great price!
from Roseville, CA
Using this paper for monotype printing. The helpful salesperson is an artist/printmaker too and told us that you can iron-out minor wrinkles the paper may have (sandwiched between other fabrics to control temp.) because the paper is 100% cotton. Good to know!
Very Good Paper, will purchase again!

The BEST Printmaking Paper!
By Bold Pressed Ink
from St George, UT
This is the only printmaking paper I use. It is heavy duty, very durable, and holds up through many many runs through the prints. I usually do 10+ layer reduction print, and this paper is amazing. I love buying it in bulk from the Blick website, which gives you a bulk discount, in comparison to buying individual sheet from the store. I am always very impressed by the care and handling of the package when it arrives. The paper is packed flat, between two pieces of cardboard, and then packaged again in a flat box for shipping. The paper always arrives in pristine condition, and it a great buy for the professional printmaker, educators, etc.
I've been buying this for years!
from La Quinta, CA
I adhere the BFK paper to the cradled boards as a base to work with encaustic paint.
BFK Rives is one of my go-to papers.
from Tallahassee, FL
I use this for printmaking, and BFK Rives is one of my perennial faves.
