Our students are preparing an exhibition. Thanks to this paper and Blick's multicolored inks, our kids' Calligraphy work looks amazing.
from Yadkinville, NC
This pad is pretty good. (I brought the European fold pad.) The only thing that bothered me was when I laid out too much paint it would rise, but VERY little!- Has a European fold, which allows me to fold the back cover and it looks like I have a stack of papers, instead of struggling with the cover.- Pages absorb the paint surprisingly well!- Whenever I paint with watercolors, no "residue" of paint is left on the next page :)- Pages are relatively thick.- The pages do rise a little, almost nothing, but only when too much water is applied. But even then it still doesn't rise too much, only if you pay close attention. :)Overall, I enjoyed this product and thought it was wonderful.

Love the quality of this paper. I use it to make my handmade journals & it takes a lot of mediums very well!
Excellent choice for card makers
from Milwaukee WI
I use Canson paper for card making its the perfect weight and the texture it is a little smoother than Strathmore and Dick Blicks house brand.i run the pieces through my die cutting machine to make card fronts that I can watercolor as well as heat emboss. Even though it's a nice thick 140lb paper it cuts beautifully. The paper holds up well to both processes without warping. I cannot speak to its archival property but it's the perfect choice for my purposes.i buy the 9x12 pads and I can get four cards made per piece the left over scraps are great for saving and using for small pieces you want to watercolor and adhere to,other projects. Dick Blicks is the best place to buy this paper the price cannot be beat. You will not be disappointed. Once my watercolor piece is finished I adhere it to a colored piece of card stock for a "framed or faux matted" look.
A lifetime customer for this product
By Danielle the paper artist
from Phoenix, AZ
I am in the paper art industry and I create florals from this paper. It's high quality and what I like to call "toddler proof". I use 140lb standard and the end result is beautiful. dickblick.com has the most competitive pricing out there, and with bulk purchases I am able to save additionally! High quality paper. Highly recommended.

Best Watercolor Paper ever!!!
from San Diego
I teach kids after school art and this is the best watercolor paper for them. It's the best price and a really excellent quality. I always order from BLICK for this watercolor paper.
Perfect for the price
from Queens, NY
It's student quality watercolor paper. It's not artist therefore not intended for finished artwork. However, you can not get anything better for this price, even if you're looking for children's art class supplies.
