Welcome to dickblick
Rosaspina is a hidden jewel among printmaking papers! It performs as well as 100% rag papers and is excellent for all printmaking techniques.
Its 60% cotton content and lack of external sizing give it a sumptuously soft surface ideal for deep etching and aquatint. It makes for an equally luxurious, upscale drawing paper.
This paper is mould-made with two natural deckled edges.
Handling Charge — When ordering sheets of paper or board larger than 18” x 24” in quantities of less than 10, a $3.00 per order handling fee applies. Paper or boards may be assorted to reach the quantity of 10.

Fabriano Rosapina Paper works as good as it feels.
from Prattville, Alabama
Comments about Fabriano Rosaspina Paper:
Used for printmaking and print transfer, with soft pastel and ink, and with acrylic paint. First time I have used and I liked the texture and softness of the paper. I does not hold up to scrubs or erasing, but was very nice.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Great quality paper for printmaking on a budget!
from Minneapolis, MN
This paper is not the highest quality printmaking paper, but it is great for the price. If you are looking to create an edition on a budget, or have paper with which you can create trial proofs, Fabriano Rosaspina is the paper for you!
Printmakers love good paper!
from South Carolina
As a printmaker, I create monotypes and screen-prints, with water and oil based ink, of plants from my garden. I love the vast array of texture found in nature. After working as a horticulturalist and florist for many years, these botanical prints express my interest in nature and its intricate details. Rosaspina printmaking paper has proven to be an excellent paper that is sturdy enough to create multi layered images while leaving wonderful embossments in paper of vascular system of foliage and small twigs. The paper takes both oil base and water based ink very well..it is excellent! I choose ivory shade to capture earthy tones. Thanks Blick for suggesting this paper for printmaking and making it available at such a reasonable price!

Great for lino cut printing
By Cat Jackson Printmaker
I was looking for a relatively affordable paper for lino cut printing. It is almost as buttery as BFK but mych cheaper. It stays flat and presents nicely.

outstanding service --as usual
By Larry the lamb
from Pasadena Maryland
I'm a printmaker and your zinc plates are a great value. It's the first time I've used Fabriano's Rosapina paper and it's an excellent printmaking paper at a very competitive price. When ordering art supplies, Dick Blick is the first place I look. Just wish you stocked tarlatan (starched cheesecloth). It's very difficult to find locally.

The texture and weight of this paper is perfect! Drawing on it was a dream.
Great for Printmaking
By C. Suko
from Clarksville, TN
I use Fabriano Rosaspina for silkscreen, but I still prefer Arches 88 (it's more expensive, though).Sometimes the paper will not lay flat when inks are applied. It gets rippled and wavy. I still love the paper despite this, cause the prints can be flattened out again. I've also used this paper for etching, and it works really well, too.

Soft and Lush
from Carlsbad, New Mexico
I use this paper for small size drypoint etchings. It rips smoothly and easily into the sizes I need, and it holds it shape well after being wetted. With correct press settings, it embosses well and hold the ink without bleeding, so I get nice fine detail in my prints. It dries stiff enough to hold a flat shape, and its natural white color looks great in any matting color when framed. The price is right, and the texture and quality are a great value. In fact, I just received my order of 25 more sheets of this paper.

Fabriano Rosaspina=cheap, but amazing
from Springdale, Arkansas
This paper is priced cheap, but the product is not a reflection of its cheapness. It's just as thick as bfk, and takes to etching and linoleum prints beautifully (this is all I have tried on it).
