Perfect paper- couldn't ask for more--and quickly delivered.

Collages with painting and paper
I use this paper for my food illustrations and it works beautifully. It grips the pigment and I've experienced zero problems with warping. The surface also allows for lifting if you need to quickly fix a mistake. I previously used arches but switched due to price and this has been a surprisingly wonderful alternative.#sweepstakes

By Ira H. artist
from White Plains, New York
Very good gouache paper. Holds up to water and washes very well. 400 Series has good heavy weight. Been using for years and have never been disappointed.

A paper that you don't feel guilty practicing on
from NY, NY
What is really great about this paper is that it is of above average student quality and a great price. Although the paper does buckle, if you tape it down and paint it may as well be an artist grade paper. The price is unbeatable and best of all I always feel comfortable to just practice a piece and not feel guilty about throwing the page out once I'm done.

Missing a sheet
By The thInker
from Washington, DC
I love this paper but my 12-sheet pad only had 11 pages. Since I'm cutting the pages to bind a book, the odd number threw me off. :(((
