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.

Saunders Waterford HW HP improved surface - bad performance
By Professional Watercolor Artist
from Philadelphia, PA
Saunders Waterford High White Hot Press used to be an excellent paper. But new modified parer with improved smoother surface lacks watercolor performance. The paper absorbs water too quickly for many techniques I used on unimproved version of the same paper. It makes the final watercolor appear blotchy and requires extra effort and work hours to correct the shortcoming. I think the best course of an action for the company would be to abandon the "improvement" and reverse to the old manufacturing process otherwise I will need to look for a new paper for my work. It really become a mediocre paper out being one of the best.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
from Shelby Twp., MI
My favorite watercolor paper. It handles nicely and the extra weight works well when working wet on wet.

200 lb Waterford
from Bayfield, WI
Chose this paper so I could roll it and travel via airline. Worked well. Flattened out quickly, has a smoother surface than Arches cold press, wrinkles less than 140lb. Still prefer 300lb Fabriano, although this Waterford is coming up sweet. Used to work exclusively with Waterford 140, this paper in 200 lb feels great.
Would Buy Again

I was impressed with the way my sheets arrived. So well packaged and protected. They were perfect when I opened the box. Very nice quality paper, too! Would definitely order this again.
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.
The best watercolor paper

Mistakes can be corrected, washes can be intermingled perfectly, final results are perfect.

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.
