Always what I want when I want it
By Frank Page
from Rome, NY
I've used Strathmore paper for my entire career. It's never let me down... and the one time it did, the company made good on their quality. Dick Blick is always my go to place for supplies. I've been using them since before they had a website!

Tje quality of the sketch pads are of great quality. It was delivered promptly and well packaged. Having artistic grandkids I will buy more products. The price is very reasonable compared to other sites selling the same product. Thank you,

Frankly, I don't know if these sketchbooks are best in category or a fantastic deal, but I've relied on them for sketch and idea work for long time, and I'm glad Strathmore is still making them in the same quality as always.
Sketchbooks for students
By GA Art Teacher
from Kathleen, GA
I bought all the sketchbooks for my students this year. I got the 8x5 for my intro students and 9x12 for more advanced classes. I like that they have 100 pages and are spiral bound. I wish I could get the toned pages for the same price. I like the little ones for intro because they are a little less intimidating and 9x12 is a great size to fit in a backpack. The paper is a great weight and very sturdy to work with all media.
Perfect size for taking everywhere.
from Chicago area, IL
Good paper, perfect size.
Gets the job done well. It's spiral binding is a little tighter than some (at least in the 9x12, haven't tried the other sizes), so it can get a little 'puffed up' and tight as the pages get used, but this also means it holds everything relatively tight and safe. It's a little brick that I can thrown in my backpack with no worries. My Canson Universal, with a bigger spiral, slides all over the place if I'm not careful. The paper quality itself is roughly the same as Canson sketch paper.
Fabulous Quality, Great Value!
from Louisville, Kentucky
These sketchpads are amazing. The paper is good quality. I got the 100 sheets 9 x 12 inch pad, and its honestly the best quality for the price that I saw whilst searching the internet. You won't be sorry, these are just great.
Its a fine product
from Webb City, Missouri
I like this sketch pad in 5"X8" it fits nicely into my cargo pocket, and the back is a nice sturdy piece of cardboard to draw with.
