Welcome to dickblick
Professionals worldwide love this paper for its superb performance and resistance to distortion.
Mouldmade of 100% cotton, Saunders Waterford is gelatin sized, and neutral pH. Each sheet has two natural deckles and two tear deckles.
Saunders Waterford is endorsed by the prestigious Royal Watercolor Society of England.
Saunders developed High White in response to requests from professional artists searching for a whiter shade of watercolor paper. Because of its whiter base color, pigments appear more vivid and sparkling, giving paintings a fresher, more contemporary look. As a base color, High White allows the lightest highlights to be achieved, either by color-lifting or by using masking fluid. Highlights have a brighter, cleaner glow, enhancing the contrast between the lightest and darkest points on paintings. Used by professionals around the world, Waterford High White is endorsed by the prestigious Royal Watercolour Society of England.
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.

The ONLY Watercolor Paper to Use
This paper can deal with many many over washes when correcting a color.You can add and take away as much watercolor as necessary till you get it exactly like you want it. Great quality in this paper.What I love most about this paper is it's beautiful color. It has the MOST beautiful off white color which I so love to paint on.It's the perfect paper..there's none other like it.

Saunders Waterford paper a winner
from Pebble Beach CA
I have used Arches paper almost 40 years but the quality in my newer supply changed for the worse. With the Saunders Waterford brand I have noticed a positive difference in applying watercolor washes and retaining the color intensity.Thank you for supplying this product.

I have searched for a replacement for the old Fabriano formula... they have changed it somehow to where I no longer like using it. I LOVED W/N but they no longer make it. Saunders is no my go to paper. It is a bit soft and the colors are not quite a bright as on other papers, but I do love the way it handles. The rough is especially nice.
Excellent paper but wish it came in smaller sheets!
from San Luis Obispo, CA
This is the first time I've tried Saunders Waterford 200 lb. hot press. I have used Arches 140 lb. hot press for years. I started looking for alternatives to Arches recently because of a buckling and warping problem. I don't want to have to stretch paper. I did not experience any buckling with the Saunders Waterford. As an added bonus, my gouache paint went on the paper much smoother than with Arches. I'm sold, but now the only problem is that Saunders Waterford is sold only in large single sheets. I wish it came in smaller sized pads, or at least in smaller sized sheets. I paint very small, so to buy a large number of single sized sheets doesn't work for me, and it seems wasteful to send a single sheet across the entire United States to California.

Onen Of The Best Watercolor Papers
from Sausalito CA
I have tried a number of cold-pressed watercolor papers over the years and Saunders Waterford is by far one of the best quality papers out there. I paint wet-in-wet with lots of water and the colors don't fade as much when dry as they do on other brands. I can easily lift color, and I have even scrubbed off color back to the white of the paper, then repaired a painting without ruining it. I love this paper and highly recommend it.

I love this heavy paper !
Sturdy. Perfect watercolor paper.
from New Bern, NC
I bought 140# CP after trying a sheet from my mentor. This is wonderful paper. It holds a wash and my washes form "beads" with no effort on my part. Colors look vibrant. Just a nice all round paper. Softer than Arches.
