Fulfills my hopes
Comments about Canson XL Drawing Pads:
I had asked my students to get sketchbooks, but when they had a hard time and the cost was high, I got online to my "go to" Blick. Love the books. They are a great weight for multi media and did not break my budget. My students LOVE the color of the cover.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Great product for a great price
from El Paso, TX
I use these pads for life drawing with pencil and ballpoint pen. Both instruments work very well on this media, which feels neither too flimsy nor too heavy. It seems a bit brighter than their 'recycled' variant, at least it takes graphite better (something I still have to get used to). I love the wirebound top since I mostly work in portrait orientation. The micro-perforation is great as well: it does not rip accidentally but will leave a clean cut when needed. The pricing here at DickBlick is very competitive, although I had to order a sixpack at once to offset shipping charges. This way I ended up paying less per pad than at the Sundays-closed big box store, even after factoring in their sale or 40% off coupon price. And shipping itself was extremely fast! Thank you!

Awesome Student & Little Kid Drawing Pad
By Elsa, Little Peeps Emporium
from Baltimore, MD
The paper is heavy enough to handle crayons and markers well, and you can't beat the price. Also, the heavy binding and covers makes it hold up much better than the low-quality pads people often buy for children. If you can get them to keep the paper in the pads, you will have a nice, neat record of their artistic endeavors, and you won't have paper all over your house.An acceptable paper weight for pencil or pen & ink sketch as well, but I wouldn't try pastel or paints.
