Arches papers aren't just for watercolors. Use them also for drawing, calligraphy, gouache, printmaking, acrylics, and even digital printing. Manufactured from pure cotton fiber, they are so durable that they will remain beautiful and vibrant for centuries without conservation, if stored and handled properly.
Many artists say they choose Arches because working on an inferior surface just isn't worth the effort. And no other watercolor paper provides such a huge selection of sizes, surfaces, and formats for creative expression.
Arches Bright White is mouldmade without optical brighteners or bleaches. The pulp is brighter than the Natural White Sheet, thus showing colors more intensely from the surface.
This paper features two deckle edges, two waterline edges, and a watermark. This sheet offers the same durability and strength as the Natural White sheet. Just like the original Arches, it is acid-free, pH-neutral, gelatin-sized, and air-dried. Both 140 lb (300 gsm) and 300 lb (640 gsm) weights are available.
Handling Charge — When ordering sheets of paper or board larger than 18” x 24” in quantities of less than 10, a $3.00 per order handling fee applies. Paper or boards may be assorted to reach the quantity of 10.
Shipping Note — Due to manufacturer distribution restrictions, Arches products cannot be shipped to addresses outside of North America.

Still the best
A really good product for the watercolourist. The only negative is why they put a deckle edge on the full 22x30 sheet when everyone just cuts it off. Not anyone I know paints a 22x30 picture.

I cannot say whether it is the best ever only because I did not try other professional watercolor quality paper. I cannot judge the price either, it is expensive for me. I can tell it is of beautiful quality, I bought cold pressed 140lbs, nice structure, neither too rough nor too smooth, perfect. I am looking forward to using it. I can see why most professionals chose Arches. Blick's has an excellent customer service, I can even say astounding considering what is going on in USA in that sector. I am not certain whether I received bright white sheet or natural. Blick is sending samples of both so I can compare. I am impressed and hooked on Blick.

The paper came too late for my workshop. Fortunately I had a few sheets already.
My favorite watercolor paper...for 20 years!!!!
from South Dartmouth, Ma.
I am an illustrator and a printmaker. I use this paper for my watercolor and ink paintings and illustrations. I recently published my first illustrated book, all painted on this wonderful paper, looks beautiful!
Love this paper!

I'm new to watercolor, and am trying to learn from video tutorials. After using student grade paper for a while, I decided to try a better quality...what a difference it makes!
I mostly use the hot press. It takes washes nicely and is easy to work with. Colors stay crisp and easy to control. It's also good with holding an ink line without bleeding.
This is the best for watercolor! love it.
