Excellent paper in excellent condition
from Allentown, PA
Comments about Legion Papers Unryu Paper:
This is my favorite block printing paper. It's thin, pretty, and strong, and it gives my prints a certain "oomph!" I was worried about ordering it online because it would get wrecked in shipping, but it was packaged really well. It just had some wrinkles, which flattened out after a night of putting books on it. It was otherwise in perfect condition, which is way better than the paper sold at a brick-and-mortar store, where everyone and their kid comes in and manhandles it!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This paper was not exactly what I was looking for, just a little too thin, and I couldn't tell from the photos. No matter: I will make good use of it. Came very quickly by Fedex, packed flat in a large box. Nice job. Excellent price, too, even including the shipping. This is an item that is hard to find in Canada, and definitely not at this price.
Perfect Printmaking Paper
from Greenville, SC
I am a professional artist and use this paper for linocuts - its fantastic. I print on the smooth side, it takes the ink so well, its so easy to work with! I highly recommend this paper - its seriously the only paper I work with now.
Unryu rice paper
By Jay bird
from Amherst, Mass
I use unryu rice paper with ink and water colors on untreated paper . Sometimes I coat the paper with matte medium for a different effect. The paper is strong and always very good quality. Care must be taken when it is wet with water color as the paper will shred or tear. I love working with unryu because the colors seem to seep into the paper , bleed and provide a variety of unexpected results.

Needs special care in shipping
from Yonkers, NY
This paper will do for my purposes, as I am experimenting with the transparency for drawing rather than printing. However, I had to have the Unryu Paper shipped twice. First time, it was sent in same package with other items, a pad of paper and sheets of smaller paper which were separated by smaller cardboard inserts. The inserts creased and tore the Unryu. I asked Blick to send the Unryu sheets again, which they did willingly and quickly. The second time the corrugated cardboard used to create the shipping container were all running in the same direction, so naturally the container bent and so did the paper. I'll deal with it. But it's too simple to understand that cardboard supports need the corrugation to be horizontal on one layer and vertical on the other to prevent bending. Shipping department needs a tutorial on box-making for strength. Otherwise, this item should be shipped in a cylinder, or picked up in store.

This unryu paper is very poor quality. It's texture is more like construction paper than the usual asian papers I have bought. Very few fibers too. I returned it.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
