Print paper, I would buy again
from Starkville MS
Comments about Canson Rives Printmaking Papers:
The only main concern is the 2 inch sticker on the FRONT of the paper...it tears when you take it off(and you obviously can't just leave it) so it requires you to cut off the portion that it affects OR use the opposite side of the paper. Other than that the paper is fine
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

My Favorite Printing Paper
By Sherry the Printer
After using a different paper, I realized how good the BFK Rives is. I print in relief,and intaglio. The paper soaks well, handles easily, and consistently shows a clear, crisp image.
By M. Coleson
from Fort Worth, TX
Great high quality paper. works with many different mediums (I have specifically used it for charcoal, screen printing, pencils, and markers). Can be cut or torn to make a beautiful Deckle edge.

Good for all printmaking mediums. Very soft and absorbent.

These are always packed with care. I need not worry about bent paper no matter what size.. Thanks Dick Blick!
Shipped with care
from Portland, OR
I always worry about specialty papers being damaged during shipping, for every sheet is precious. Blick wrapped them expertly, even overprotecting the corners (which always seem to get banged up in shipping). Great work!
Roll out the paper!
from Kihei, Maui
I use this roll of paper for my Lino Cuts. I used to buy sheets of paper, and had some waste from not using it all...having a small leftover pieces. By buying a roll, I plan out the sizes and cut the paper so I have no wasted little pieces. It's an investment initially, but the savings are big for me. The paper is a wonderful quality and I love printing on it.
