Welcome to dickblick
The smooth, hard surface of Paris paper is a convenient and economical alternative to bristol board. Brilliant white, crisp, and bleedproof, it is the ideal surface for detailed pen-and-ink illustrations rendered for reproduction with crowquill pens, broad drawing pens, calligraphy, or fountain pens.

Not Bleedproof for Pen Nibs
By Scot Free
from Long Island, NY
Comments about Borden & Riley Paris Bleedproof Paper For Pens:
The first thing I noticed about this paper is how thin it seemed compared to the Bristol paper I normally use for my comics illustration. Which is not necessarily a bad thing. I used to use a thin Bristol paper by Aquabee, (no longer made), that was wonderful. However, this Borden & Riley Paris Bleedproof Paper For Pens is not nearly as bleedproof as I need it to be. I use a Hunt # 102 nib pen for much of my inking, and the bleed was immediately noticeable with even the gentlest strokes. It seemed to work okay with rapidograph pens, and I'm sure it would be fine for brush work. But if you're using sharp nib pens like a Hunt #102, I'm afraid you'll be disappointed. It's too bad, because I would've liked to be able to use a lighter weight paper like this, and the price was very reasonable. It may work for you, depending on the type of pen you use: it may be worth it for you to give it a try. As for me, I'm going back to Canson Foundation Series Bristol, which, in a side-by-side test, performed much better,
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Love this paper for markers!

Great quality paper
from Saint Louis, MO
I bought this to use with my copic markers and it works much better than many other marker papers I've tried. You can lay down lots of layers of color without it clerking through and it's pretty easy to blend. Only thing I didn't like was it not being spiral bound. Otherwise, terrific product

Best marker paper (heavy-weight) out there.
My favorite paper for inking with a lightbox
from Los Angeles, CA
I make comics, and this paper is the best I've found so far for what I use it for: (mostly) bleed-proof when using inks, thin enough to use with a lightbox, thick enough not to curl too much.
I've been using this paper for years. Since Pearl Paint closed, it's been harder to find this brand/type. Use it to draw detailed pencil and pen work. Paper is tinted so its not glaringly white which is easier on the eyes. Paper quality is great too- not too too thin or stiff. My favorite paper!

Fine detail pen & ink paper
from American Fork, UT
I'll keep this short and sweet.Excelent paper for using Copic Multiliners and Copic markers. There is just enough absorption to not bleed outside the areas you are working in yet you can still wet blend your markers.Only drawback: it still bleeds when using india in and a metal nip nib.
