I have been using watercolors, charcoal and chalk, alcohol markers and paint but nothing seems to seep through to the other side of the page, its amazingly smooth and easy to blend on as well. Dream paper :)
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Wirebound Crescent RendR No Show Thru Paper
I love spiral bound notebooks that lay flat. This no show through paper is amazing, I even used acrylic paint.

I've always been very persnickety about my sketchbooks and this one completely satisfies me in nearly all aspects. I do understand why other buyers are unhappy with the lay flat aspect of it, but over all, I sincerely enjoy this product. I was always wasteful with my other sketchbooks; I'd never use pages front and back since my markers bled through, but not in this case. I'm getting the full value of the paper and I couldn't be happier.
I am going to buy a lot more of this product
from Arlington, TN
An excellent product. I haven't even used up the paper I have and I'm already planning to buy more. I would love for it to come in wider, longer form.
Decent Paper for markers, but....
from Pocatello, ID
I am fairly new to Copics and was advised to get special paper for them. I enjoy drawing in bound sketchbooks, so thought that this was perfect, albeit a little pricey for a sketchbook. I liked the idea of no bleed paper, and the fact that it supposedly lays flat really drew me to it. But then I got it in the mail....I haven't even used it with my Copics yet and I already notice two big problems. The first is the smell. It came shrink wrapped and there was nothing noticeable about the smell of it when I opened it until I left it sitting next to me for about 20 minutes. I picked it back up and flipped through the pages and was hit with a STRONG smell that eventually gave me a headache. Other reviewers mention this smell, and they aren't kidding. So if you are smell sensitive, stay away from this thing.The 2nd problem I had with the sketchbook was that it does NOT lay flat. At all. Maybe if you left it open to a specific page for days and put something heavy on it, it may eventually lay flat, but it is NOTHING like the super flat sketchbook shown on the packaging. Sure it probably lays flatter than a regular sketchbook, but not by much.I am probably going to keep the sketchbook and test out its pages (since so many have said how good they are with Copics), but honestly, I wouldn't recommend this sketchbook. For Copic users, you're probably better off just buying the Xpress It Blending Card and making your own sketchbook out of that. Or just get a really nice portfolio to store your single pieces of art in.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

It really works
Loving markers makes it hard to use sketchbooks, usually i use some extra papper to avoid stains in other pages or even with maker papper (were your colors show smothly) you still cant use the back, With this one, you get perfectly smoth colors in both sides. Definitelly love it.
After all I've tried, RendR is the only one for me!
from Royal Oaks
I like to carry the small size in my purse for whenever I'm waiting in the car or for someone. I can sketch, ink, or color in with markers and not worry it will bleed to the next page where I've started another sketch. Makes for a compact book to carry! The larger size works same way for me. I can sketch on both sides and if I decide to ink or color in I haven't ruined the sketch on the other side. The paper is smooth, I like the way it takes color pencils too.
If you use markers a lot and need a sketchbook, this will be your best friend. I've saturated one side of a page to heck and back with no show through. The paper will curl slightly but it's not that frustrating unless you work with wetter media like big areas of ink and watercolor. The layflat design isn't perfect but the portability of it outweighs that by far.

A great, reliable product
I kept seeing this sketchbook recommended by many artists, and I'm happy to say it's well deserving of the praises. The paper is strong, thick and not flimsy at all, plus very smooth (very very subtle texture to it). There are some small issues:- It has a smell if you are sensitive to that, but it's not strong enough to bother me.- The pages are more off-white than bright white, so it's very hard to tell what colours I'm laying down with more transparent, pastel markers. Before they dry, they look more like a wet stain on the paper. - I bought the lay flat book but it does not lay completely flat as advertised, rather it's 'flat enough' with effort, aka you pressing down the pages for a while. Aside from that, I really like it, and it is 100% bleedproof! I have tested different marker brands in this, as well as inks, and there is no bleed even with a lot of layering. It is not a purely mixed media sketchbook, so try not to use much water in it or it will warp. It works for light washes of ink. You can see examples of work I've done in the sketchbook attached.
