Excellent student grade paper
By Dot The Artist
from San Francisco, CA
This paper is a good starter paper for anybody interested in watercolor. It's more student grade than professional quality, which is why it's less expensive. This is good for beginners or people wishing to practice techniques on less expensive paper before doing a final piece on expensive paper.The size of the paper is nice as well, you can cut it down to smaller pieces and make much more use out of it.Strathmore also claims to have a strong environmental stance which I can get behind. All in all, this is an inexpensive watercolor paper that performs very well. I've bought this product many times and I will continue to in the future!

Strong, Durable, Luscious Watercolor Paper
By Kindergarten Teacher
from Arcata, Ca
This paper works exceptionally well with children. It is very thick and absorbent If the artist is using pencil, it holds up to gentle erasing. Due to its heavy weight, it does not tear easily with small hands for collage work.
Good quality watercolor paper.
from Bend, OR
140lb watercolor paper is a good weight for a variety of techiques.
This paper is purchase-worthy for the cheap price. The quality is okay but requires some extra cares:1. This paper isn't very tolerable to large amount of water. My techniques are leaning to illustrating more than painting and I barely have big washes on my works, but I do notice that a little bit more water make the paper swells easily. When the paper dries, it returns to normal perfectly but drying takes not a small amount of time.2. It's kinda tricky to wet the paper properly. Like I said above, a lot of water can swell the paper. The opposite problem is I try to wet the paper, use tissue to take off some water, the paper will hold no water back.Generally this watercolor paper is good enough, not something excellent but still at least manageable, especially for the price. I will only use this for smaller-sized, illustrative pieces though.

SUPERB WATERCOLOUR PAPER WORKS GREAT IN MY INKJET PRINTER!
from Crestline, CA
This Strathmore 300-series heavyweight cold-press textured watercolour paper was not intended for, nor advertised for use in ink-jet printers, but I very successfully use them to print my digital art in a large-format Epson, with my art techniques, they come out looking pretty much like original watercolours. They feed through nicely, accept inks without too much absorption of chroma and my tests show the images have lasted many years with no apparent loss of color. My only wish is that the paper would come in 17 1/2" x 24" so I wouldn't have to trim the 18" width to fit my printer ; )... but that's just a minor thing.

Best Watercolor Paper!
This is my favorite watercolor paper for the price. Very thick. Some pads say 140lb but don't seem as thick as this. I use it for myself and my students.
By Jenna creates
from Seattle , wa
I am an art instructor and this is the onlt paper i use now in my watercolor clases.It is a great deal and it can hold a lot of water.
I use this excellent (18x24") watercolour paper for my large-format Epson printer... I cut the sheets to 17 1/2" wide to fit the max width of the printer. 17" paper formats are available but I do not like the paper surface of these. The Stratmore 300 is VERY heavy with a nice rough texture which enhances the quality feel of my limited edition prints. Much of my art is digital now, and is designed to look like watercolour. Now, when printed on this paper, after the inks are somewhat absorbed overnight, the finished print appears very much like a watercolour. My only negative comments are that the pad adhesive binding is SOMETIMES way too strong, leaving impossible-to-remove adhesive along the bound edge, it can even cause the paper to crease or even tear if not removed with special care. Small areas of the pad corners have sometimes been crunched in the shipping or packing process, though these can be flattened with care. This paper has done a lot for me, I can honestly say I like it a lot!
