Drawing Paper, 24-Sheet Pad, 18" × 24", 125th Anniversary Edition
For a limited time, this pad of 80 lb 400 Series drawing paper will feature artwork honoring the founder of Strathmore Paper Company, Horace Moses. Mr. Moses opened the Mittineague paper mill on St. Patrick's Day in 1892 in West Springfield, Massachusetts. Soon after, he visited the Valley of Strathmore in Scotland. The thistle was in full bloom and the beauty of the area impressed him so much that he started using the name and the thistle as a symbol of high-quality art and printing papers. Today, 125 years later, Strathmore continues to provide artists the ideal surface for producing lasting works of art.

Great quality and versatility
from Brooklyn, NY
Comments about Strathmore 400 Series Drawing Paper Pads:
The 18 x 24" worked well for holding a one-time life drawing class, as we wouldn't need more than its 24 sheets. The backing isn't super rigid but is just strong enough to prop up without an easel; when held as a landscape, the pages didn't slip and didn't need binder clips. Good quality paper for a variety of media at a great price.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Review of Paper Pads
from Sterling Illinois
Every year for the last 3 years now we have ordered from this company and we have never had any problems. Customer service is great, products are wonderful, and the shipping is fast! One little problem this year however, when we ordered these sketchbooks (Which we always order in bulk) one of them only had 19 pages in the book. These come in 24 so I was just curious what may have happened. Obviously, mistakes happen and our Art Instructor was not upset, but it just seemed curious.
Merchant response: We apologize for the issue with one of the pads you received. We're happy to replace that, and we've forwarded your comments to Strathmore as well. Please look for an email from one of our Customer Care Agents who will be in touch to assist you.

My daughter is a Concept Artist Student and she loves this high quality paper!
Perfect for dry materials
from East Lansing, MI
I purchased this for a drawing 1 class so I could have a good source of heavier paper for our homework assignments. It works well, the tooth holds on great to charcoal (as long as you make sure you use the right side) and the stiffness of the paper makes it less likely to tear while I carry it around. I ordered one of the larger sizes, so I cannot really complain about issues with traveling, but I will definitely need to buy another soon! The price is reasonable, the quality is great, and Blick shipped it faster than expected and 100% in tact.
Good Value Nice paper
I recommend this to all my beginning students at the college level. Great sketch paper.
