Nice, Non-absorbent Paper
By Designer David
from LeRoy, NY
Comments about Strathmore 400 Series Drawing Paper:
I bought these sheets to experiment on a printing press with oil based inks. I realized it's drawing paper but what the heck. Good price for a nice size sheet. I printed onto the sheet with metal type. Ink coverage is about 90% (flat areas). The ink seems to sit on the surface, a trait useful in drawing but not wet media. Impression is okay. My conclusion is that I would not order this paper again for letterpress printing although it sort of worked. Not the paper's fault.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Great drawing paper for the price
from Chicago, IL
I usually use rag paper for my own work, but I chose this for a drawing workshop, to be used with Prismacolor pencils. The students loved it. I've been using it for years for sketching, and after 15-20 years, the paper doesn't seem to have yellowed. So, since it's acid free, even though it's not rag, I'll use it for "serious" work. The paper has a really nice tooth for drawing, without a distracting surface.

great shopping at blick
from new york
I loved shopping online at blick. you forget about the hussle of having to carry all the heavy material through the city.
outstanding paper product
from Jacksonville Florida
I love the rolled paper as I can create any size drawings and paintings. A must have for the serious artist.
Smooth to draw on.
This paper is Wonderful for pencil and ink it does bleed a bit but, it also takes markers really well if your looking to just try them out, the colors really POP off the paper.
A good solid drawing paper
By La Rue
Very pleasant to use and durable. Holds up well to erasing, and agressive pencil use.
I will keep buying this paper. love it,
from Puerto Vallarta, Mexico
I use this paper for charcoal drawings. I love the color, and it stands up to lots of erasing and scrubbing.
no fuss no muss
from Anacortes, WA
Very good for charcoal. I commit my work to it without reservation. I may find something better someday, but I don't know how it would improve much.
Not recommended in bulk
I would not recommend buying this paper in bull, as each individual sheet has a sticker applied to the backside of it. The tedium of pulling off each sticker - which sometimes rips the paper - is not worth the slight savings in cost.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Economical & Good Quality
from San Diego, CA
This paper has a good surface for dry media like Conte crayon , charcoal, graphite, etc. I am trying different applications with surface prep for a bit more of a bite. Overall great weight, tint, and surface quality as sold. May purchase again.
