Drawing Paper & Boards
Blick offers drawing papers designed for every media, in formats that include individual sheets, pads, blocks, multi-sheet packs, sketchbooks, journals, rolls, and reams. Fine art papers and other drawing surfaces have been developed to complement the unique characteristics and working properties of graphite, colored pencils, charcoal, pen-and-ink, markers, and watercolors, and to accommodate mixed media, collage, calligraphy and hand lettering pens, and other drawing media.
Choose illustration boards for mounting, presentation, and detailed work with inks, pens, and markers. Toned and deep black papers and boards work especially well with metallic media. For kids just starting out, newsprint paper pads and tracing papers are an economical choice. And scratchboard art is just plain fun!
