I'm a college student with nothing much to her name and i have to say this was an excellent deal seeing that i have had to get other supplies. Also the quality of the paper is great for my art projects and in class use. I dont really have much negative to say about this product haha
Great quality for the price
from Davis, IL
I ordered these sketch pads as gifts for our artist guild members when they paid their dues. Excellent Strathmore quality, price and a good size (6 x 8) for carrying along wherever one goes. The members were pleased.

I bought a couple different sizes to use with art pens. Works great, ink does not bleed through at all.
Better Price Than My In-Town Stores!
By Ichabod Artist
from Topeka, Kansas
I originally learned about Dick Blick products from my university as the arts department buy products every semester from paints and equipment. It was not until I learned from a student who is auditing that purchasing art supplies through Dick Blick rather than our two in-town stores would be cheaper. It was not until I came online to order the price was lower than expected, and I ordered my drawing pads for the Spring 2016 semester. While the shipping process was smooth, there should have been instructions to not bend the smaller pads as they were rolled up in my mailbox upon my return from Christmas.With this review are two of my drawings I worked on in my last semester with the Strathmore 400 series. One is a first day / last day of drawing similarity, the second is a photorealism that took about a month to work on.
