2016-08: Change in Quality

Comments about Blick Studio Newsprint Pads:
Blick Newsprint has been my go-to newsprint since 2014, which I discovered the wonderfully smooth surface, combined with an economic price. Product was similar to Pro-Art Newsprint-Smooth.In Summer 2016 they changed the surface. It's now rough, and the paper quality is similar to Strathmore Newsprint (inferior).
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Good product - Great service
from Pittsburgh, PA
Newsprint was a good value. The first representative I contacted over the phone was not very knowledgeable, but he transferred me to someone else who was EXTREMELY knowledgeable and helped me with all aspects of my (somewhat complex) purchase.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Don't forget to check the binding!! I'll explain why...
from Chicago, IL
It's just newsprint and it's great for that use (at a great price also), but while I was using mine for figures (12x18, 100 sheets), some of the papers weren't attached to the binding and fell out and I figured maybe it was because I had just opened it, but after a couple pages, MORE fell out, always 3 or 4 at time! So I checked the binding and lo and behold, the ENTIRE sketchpad had loose paper throughout in groups! I bought this product because it's just newsprint and it was pretty cheap. but I'm really disappointed that the sketchpad I bought had to be the one with this annoying problem. I know not all will be like this, but just be careful and attentive when buying these products.

We use the drawing paper to draw on with our clients. I love that you can get a bulk of them at a great price, especially when you have so many clients in your class.

It arrives sooner than the estimated time

I got the 18 x 24 50 Sheet Newsprint Pad along with my Portfolio as one of the running deals here at Dickblick and I am overall impressed with it. Newsprint is a great affordable sketching medium and its quality and value comes heavily from its price, which Dick Blick delivers solidly on.I recommend purchasing it along with other items, or in bulk, as shipping costs will make it less of a value if you *only* buy one Newsprint pad
from Glendale, AZ
It is hard to find 24 x 36 newsprint, so I was very happy to be able to order this from Dick Blick. The paper is nice so far as newsprint goes and the binding holds up as well as any other newsprint that I've used. I would definitely order again.

These packs of Newsprint Papers are exactly what I needed in my quilting projects. It was recommended to use, as I can trace designs onto them, pin the papers onto my quilt and sew right threw the papers. Then, when finished, all I have to do, is tear them off & my quilt design is finished.
