Comments about Pro Art ProArt Spiral Sketchbooks:
the pages are not too thin-not too thick. perforations for pulling out a sheet with my day's to-do list.holds marker well, with no bleed thru to next page. perfect size for tossing in my pack. super sturdy covers & wire spiral. can slude a pen/marker/pencil in the spiral. a pocket on the inside of one of the covers would be great, so i use a clip to hold loose papers
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Nice quality for my youngest students
from Tampa Bay
I use these sketchbooks for two different sketching and design classes for kids, so they will have a record of their work as they improve. They are like old-tech, time-machine books, and I tell them to continue to date and document their work in sketchbooks for the rest of their lives, hoping their work will live on as artifacts in an otherwise digital world.

For the price, these sketchbooks are just right. You get fairly heavy paper that stands up to some erasing, solid covers and you can afford several.
BLICK-The Go To Source

We are a College Bookstore that needed very specific products for Art Classes. Blick was the only company that had all the product on hand with the best pricing. We received the order in three days. BLICK is "Customer Service at it's best."
Perfect Multitasking Book
from San Luis Obispo, CA
I use the various sizes for drafting, sketching and making notes. I've found them perfect to use these books for my webdesign drawings, journalling, as well as mapping for various school projects. So grateful to the Blick employee who suggested them.

By sunrise artist
from Chicago, IL
The covers are very flimsy, the paper inadequate and something I wish I had never purchased. The only thing this has going for it is the price and even that sours after realizing you still over-paid for the lack of quality you received.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Reliable & Speedy Service!!
from south san francisco
I use these books for my business and the vendors will not let you purchase them direct. Blick is a reliable source that will carry them (hopefully) always and deliver them to my house. I didn't even have to drive and spend precious time and gas going to pick them up! They were at my door the same week I ordered them. FYI, Michaels dropped the ball because they do not and will not carry this book anymore! So Blick gets my business and I am happy to give it to them!

A fabulous product
By Robin Laughingbird
I use these sketchbooks in various sizes for different requirements. Some are for sketching, including light watercolor washes, and others are for journals that are mixed writing and illustration. The paper takes washes well, and the sketchbooks are reasonably priced. I have reached a point where I prefer this product over anything else out there, for use as a general sketchbook or journal.
I've been drawing for over ten years and have found lots of good quality sketch books. I go through a lot of sketch books, and finding the ones that have great quality paper at a reasonable price has been a hassle on more than one occasion. After buying one of these as a trial - figured if it was awful I was only out a few bucks, I've decided I won't be buying other brands anymore. I was so surprised by how great it was. The paper has texture but not too much. Yes the cover can slide around a little but you're going to find that on almost any wire-bound sketch book. As long as you don't intentionally slide it around it won't be a problem.It's great for drawing with pencils, charcoal, pastels, and inks.

Didn't like it.
I recently tried several sketchbooks looking for the "perfect one" and had high hopes for this one due to the rave reviews. However, I was disappointed. I like to sketch in pencil and colored pencil with some ink here and there. I found the paper in this Pro-Art sketchbook to be too smooth for my style of sketching. Plus the spiral binding seems "wobbly" and unsteady compared to other spiral bound sketchbooks I've tried. Hard to hold as I'm drawing. I also greatly dislike the perforations that are on every sheet. I find Aquabee Super Deluxe sketchbooks to be superior in every aspect. Sure they cost more but you definitely get what you pay for. Strathmore 400 sketchbooks are also excellent.
