Great for Quilters
from Hilton Head Island
Comments about Blick All-Purpose Newsprint:
I use this product for paper Piecing quilts. It is just thin/thick enough for a sewing machine needle to go through it without ripping. I have ordered this several times and divvy it up amongst my quilting friends.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I love this stuff!
from La Quinta, CA
I love using this paper for the purposes I need it for. It's easy to handle, makes quick work of cleanup, and has many uses.When I first ordered this (I order it a couple of times a year), it was packaged so poorly that I called to complain about the condition of the paper and its packaging. Now, Blick's staff is doing an outstanding job of packing it up so that it arrives in pristine condition!
from Denver, CO
I'm taking online Watt's Atelier classes and need copious amounts of smooth newsprint. Someone recommended this Blick product and it's perfect quality, texture (smooth), and price!
Great for making sketchbooks
By TLS Art Teacher
from Trout Lake, WA
Nice and thin for making sketchbooks. I can fill with many more pages than with other drawing papers. Also great for rough drafts of larger projects.
from Novi, Mi
I cut these into 9" sections for my students. It's great for sketching and teaching o students to draw lightly with the pencil. (paper will rip if you press too hard)
A Cheap Paper for Multi-tasking
By Mark T
After watching dozens and dozens of videos on youtube of artists drawing portraits, live models, quick sketch, etc., I decided to buy some newsprint since it seemed to be the paper of choice for practicing one's drawing skills. So, I found this product and decided to try it.I can use this paper for almost anything: covering parts of my drawing while working, blocking areas in order to spray fixative, doodling to come up with another drawing idea, laying out a future long drawing, etc. Heck! You can even use it to wrap fragile objects and box them away.
Decent paper for the right kind of projects
from Baltimore, MD
I buy it for the quantity - good for non archival, temporary projects - not super heavy duty but holds acrylic paint pretty well.
I use the newsprint to cover drafting tables in my art studio it's easy to throw away the top piece and the next piece is ready to go. It's also great for doing sketches figure dry you won't find a better deal it's not the best it will fade quickly but the quick uses like what I use it's awesome .

I use this product for drawings that I need to transfer to canvas for the final painting. It has a clean tooth, handles multiple erasing well. I've been using this product for 2 years and I have yet to be disappointed.
Nwes print reams
By Ptaki Artist
from Monterey CA
Our community college print department is always supplied on a shoe string. Some of our students are not able to purchase all the items needed. We try to provide the things necessary for all students to create and advance in their studies. The loose newsprint is a great find. It is easier to use than tearing from a pad newsprint. Since it is used to protect the blankets and for interleaving for prints that are drying it is the perfect solution with the perfect price and value.
