Great quality paper at a good price! I've used this for charcoal, pastels, and acrylic!
Perfect delivery, exactly as pictured
By Poole of Thought

It arrived on time, in a cardboard delivery box, with another box that was tight-fitting to keep the pad protected. No defects were spotted, such as bending, deformation, etc. The pad also arrived in plastic wrap, so that was also a nice touch. The best thing about it i think, was the quality. It feels nice and it looks nice. Nothing beats that.

I like this product!

I use this product with my Rembrandt pastels. The paper comes in different shades which I find preferable when drawing with pastels.
