Perfrect for sketching
Comments about Strathmore 200 Series Sketch Pads:
Great for sketching. Holds up good to a lot of erasing. Is slightly off white. But that's okay for what I wanted. The back cardboard in nice and thick, so if you need to rest it on your leg when sketching, it holds up good and doesn't bend.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I would buy this again
Bought this for my granddaughter, she loved it.
Shipping was quicker than expected.
from San Francisco
Our class needed 23 of these and Blick has the best price and the best shipping. Online the shipping was estimated 3 weeks out, but it came much sooner. Very satified.
Has almost double amount of pages then average pads for the same price.

Dependable and Affordable
from San Francisco Bay Area
These are my sketch and practice standbys. According to Blick I have purchased sixty of them to date. I always buy the spiral bound 8.5x11 because it can lay flat no matter which page I have it open to and the size fits easily on my scanner. (9x12 sketchbooks on the other hand are always a little awkward to scan; I have to decide which part of the picture I can live without.)As someone who works part time at a blue collar job, I find them affordable -- especially with the quantity discounts, which I appreciate (thank you Blick!). I simply cannot practice if I am cringing about the price of the paper I'm drawing on, but these are no stress even if I'm just goofing off (an essential part of the drawing experience, IMHO). At the same time, if I happen to get into a sketch, the paper stands up fairly well to reworking (especially with charcoal) and can produce a decent finished drawing. I use these mostly for dry media. They will not stand up to watercolor washes (I just had to try it) nor are they meant to.The paper has gotten a little thinner since I first started buying these from Blick about four years ago, but they still work fine and I understand that everyone has to cut costs these days. The only drawback to the thinner paper is that I need to back anything I scan with a piece of card stock; otherwise the ghost of the sketch underneath will show through.All around good value for your money.
