A creative challenge, for sure
from Scarborough, ME
Comments about Shizen Handmade Paper by the Pound:
The quality of the paper itself is excellent! Most of the colors and designs, unfortunately, are really ugly. Maybe two or three designs are actually usable for my purposes. Package didn't include any of the beautiful sample papers shown in the listing photo. I knew it would be random, but I really wasn't expecting Christmas themes at all! This was probably was just a way of repackaging and unloading the designs they couldn't sell. Not sure how I'll be able to use them. It'll take some heavy creative thinking to get my money's worth out of this purchase. Word of caution to potential buyers- it's a huge gamble. What you'll get is VERY random, and don't expect to get what you see in the photo online. Reading the other reviews, I see that some people are very happy with what they got... so good luck if you take a chance on this!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Good paper at a decent price
I'm using this paper in some leather-bound journals I'm making. The paper has a good feel to it, accepts dry media well, and you'd have trouble beating the price.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Great selection of papers!
from North Newton, KS
I always look forward to this assortment of interesting papers for students in my book arts classes.
Beautiful Paper, wish you could choose a style
By Carter Gal
I first bought a 1/2 pound assorted package of these and I was unsure at first because they are very wild on some of the designs. I use these for scrapbooking and I have become to love them and use them very frequently. I then bought two pounds of the smaller size 8x11 because I loved the paper so much. My only complaint is that it comes with some papers that I would simply consider construction paper. If they had a design on them I would have no complaints and most of the paper is very beautiful, There is a repetition with poka dots and lines but it includes sparkles, velvet prints, regular screen printing designs even some marble looking paper that was my favorite. All in all I love this paper and will buy more when I am running low.

Beautiful paper and a nice weight. Feels more like a cotton rag paper. Great for collage. Odd odor however.

Such a great versatile material for kids!
from New York, NY
I am a teaching artist who works with K-12 students and these handmade papers are now a staple for my institution. They are fantastic materials for collage projects. Students of all ages respond to the patterns and some papers even contain extra special tactile qualities like flocking, metallic prints, glitter or even interwoven threads. This paper has a cottony feel and tends to be thick in weight. I especially like that this material comes pre-cut in classroom friendly sizes (3x 5ish) or is available in full sheets too.
Fun Decorative Paper
By Jaime the printer
from Reno, NV
Love the variety of designs on this paper. I also appreciate that there is more than one of each design in the pack. I am using this paper to bind blank journals and it is essential that I have at least two of each design in order to make covers.

this stuff is awesome , trust me :)
By Library Book Repair
from Goodwell, OK
We're going to use these papers for making clamshells and recovering books, so some of the patterns won't be appropriate. Most of the patterns are nice. There was a weird smell to the paper that still hasn't dissipated.
Pretty but Stinky
from California, USA
I got this to glue light pieces of embossed metal onto for mixed media artwork. The thickness of the paper is good for that. Unlike some other reviewers, I was very happy with the variety of designs I got. No plain, boring papers. If anything, a couple weren't plain enough. I think the price is good for the quantity and quality of the paper. I knock it down a star, though, because it has a strong chemical smell to it - probably the paint some of the designs appear to have on them.
