Welcome to dickblick
The smooth, hard surface of Paris paper is a convenient and economical alternative to bristol board. Brilliant white, crisp, and bleedproof, it is the ideal surface for detailed pen-and-ink illustrations rendered for reproduction with crowquill pens, broad drawing pens, calligraphy, or fountain pens.

Pen & Nib, Nikko, Rose, Blue Pumpkin
from Ann Arbor
Comments about Borden & Riley Paris Bleedproof Paper For Pens:
I have tested this paper in a couple of ways. For flourishing/calligraphy I have used the 76 Rose, 361 Blue Pumpkin, Nikko G and the paper holds up flawlessly. No feathering or bleed. I am using Yasutomo Sumi and Yasutomo waterproof inks. The paper is extremely stark white. I have added watercolor washes after the ink has dried. Light washes and dry brush it handles well. Don't expect to wet an area and then come in with a wet brush again because it will pucker. Then again there was no claim to do so. The paper meets the companies claims quite well.

this stuff is amazing
By A random dude
I've been using this paper to make a comic as an alternative to manga paper, and it's the best so far that works with my very fine dip pen nibs. Way better than bristol, anything else that I have tried. It's perfect for any kind of ink illustration, it never really clogs the nib unless you go out of your way to scratch and press hard. Very durable, too, erasing the sketches underneath is never a problem. Works great with any kind of dip pen, brushes, and sumi ink (that's what I have been using). And mechanical pencils. You can get super detailed without the ink feathering. Best stuff ever.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Perfect for pens!
from New York, NY
This is my go-to paper for illustrating. I love that the paper is so smooth and bright, and that it is bleed-proof with pens and Copic Sketch markers. Best yet, the pricing is reasonable so it feels very much like an affordable luxury!
Blick's My Pick
By P.S. Mueller

I am a professional gag cartoonist. Borden and Riley's Paris Bleed-proof is by far the best paper for me, and after using it for twenty years, I can tell you that it remains bright and white. I stopped using any other paper.
Great Paper with Copics!
from Prospect, Ohio
I remember seeing this product used by a concept artist on YouTube. I did pay a little more than I wanted to for it, but I wanted to get the best paper for my new Copic Ciao markers. The Copic marker ink does not bleed as much, but it did take getting used to. It was nicely saturated within the paper and took layers of ink. I wasn't sure about using smooth paper, but I began to like the product as I worked with it.

Love this paper
from Hollywood, FL
Working with pens and markers can be a mess if you don't use the correct paper. This is such a great product. I even love "feeling" the page.
Over 26,000 pen & ink illustrations since 1988!
from Highland Park, IL
The majority of my illustrations; are done on this paper! No other paper, of this weight accepts the ink better, is bleed proof and well worth the price. I will use no other.

Great paper, various different pens and ink don't bleed on it. Lighter weight than bristol, perfect for scanning illustrations.
Bright, clean, but not bleedproof
By Malcolm Zachariah
from Oklahoma City, OK
I bought this a while ago and like the white matte color and using my Prismacolor and Koh-I-Noor Rapidograph pens, but it's not bleedproof... I found out the hard way with a new set of Copic markers, which quite easily bleed through if you do more than a few layers. What's worse is that I wrote a label on the back of one drawing and found it bled through to the front. I can't imagine what strongly bleeding pens like Sharpies would do on this paper.
