Surprised the outside sketchbook covers were soft not hard
from Waterville, ME
Comments about Canson Artist Series Sketch Books:
I have been purchasing sketchbooks for the Colby Museum from Canson for over a year now. I like the hardcovers because they hold up very well to wear and tear. We have over 3000 school children who use our sketchbooks in the galleries. I was surprised when these arrived that the sketchbooks covers were made of cardstock, as I had thought I was getting the hardcover version.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

second year using these as keepsake portfolios
from Pepper Pike, Ohio
We use this product for our Kindergartners portfolios. They do a lot of cutting and pasting and the teachers tab the sides of the pages. The book is sturdy and nice sized. It is also reasonably priced!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Best sketchbook I've ever owned
from Cumming, GA
I've been through about ten of these sketchbooks and every time, they deliver. These sketchbooks are great for playing around with things, but not so much for inking and alcohol based markers. If you just want to doodle in pencil and design and play, these sketchbooks will impress you as they have with me.

Good go to studen sketchbook
By Art Teacher
Paper holds up to drawing with pencils, pen and ink, collage and watercolor.
from Boca Raton, FL
The product was purchased for AP High School students. I purchased two different types of sketch pads from two different companies. The paper inside it was of great quality, as to be expected. But, this one was seriously superior with its presentation (binding, style, etc.) ... that it made the other pads look cheap! Great product at a great price!

What a deal!!!
By ENL teacher
from Long Island, NY
I am so happy with this notebook. The paper allows my students to create beautiful sketches. The spiral binding is smooth and allows the paper easily fold back. This is a great deal.

Perfect size and price for elementary students to begin journaling and sketching everyday
A great quality sketch book.
This sketch book is really great for what it is. It has the perfect balance between paper that isn't too thick to where you feel like you're wasting good paper on sketches, but not to thin to where you feel like the paper is going to rip and actually does. The texture is also balanced, not too rough or too smooth. This is a very nice product.
Love this sketchbook
from Hawley, Pa.
This 9 x 12 spiral sketch book has lots of pages and it fits in an average carryall. Great for outdoor sketching. Sometimes use light watercolor paint, or colored pencils. Works for me. Good quality paper.
I'm a converted Canson user
from Madison, NJ
I have always used the Canson Artist series Bristol for some time. I saw the 5.5 x 8.5 Universal Sketch book and decided to give it a try and was pleasantly surprised with the way the paper accepts the pencil and that when I used a sketch pen, it didn't bleed through. And the size is just right. Great product!
