This semi-transparent, acid-free white marker paper is great for drawing or design work, from rough sketches to finished presentations. It accepts both alcohol-based and solvent-based marker ink with no bleedthrough, yet responds beautifully to pens and pencils, too.

Comments about Canson XL Marker Pads:
This is excellent paper for calligraphy- I am so happy now I have 2 favorites- this one and Strathmore 400 for my studying of beautiful lettering. It takes ink so nicely even with such inexperienced beginner like me.It is very smooth and it needs more time to dry but this is not a problem for me. It is semi-transparent and any line guide placed underneath is seen clearly for better writing. I tried dip pen with different pointed nibs, lamy calligraphy fountain pen, pilot parallel plate nib pen- all write perfectly on this paper- with crisp lines, no feathering. My letters look much better, so much that I'm surprised and proud of my mini-progress. Great american product!!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Perfect paper for markers! Colors go on smoothly.
We are designing comic book covers as an art class project and they really POP on this paper!
First Time Buying
from St. Louis, MO
This was my first time buying this product, and I wasn't disappointed. The pricing was good, and this is also my first time buying marker paper. I used the Copic Ciao Skin Tone marker set & a few Blick Studio Markers, and they didn't bleed through the paper (Probably same results with other alcoholic-based markers). One side of the paper is smooth and doesn't smear, the other side is smoother, but smears. I tested the side that smears, & once it dried it didn't smear anymore, so I think both sides are useable. I would buy this product again.
Best product for marker art
By Silvia - Street Artist
from Chicago, Ill
I do FUN ART for children at Fun Fairs and this time, for my block party. I weave the children's name in to a small picture. It has been so successful that many years later I have found out the parents have framed their pictures to keep on display. And I was only using Newspaper Print paper! Cason paper is durable, strong and acid free so it will last and provide enjoyment to parents for years to come.

Not the best
from Lansing, MI
I mostly use this as scratch paper or for quick sketches, as alcohol marker ink tends to sit on top and after going over the layers, it can lift the ink up instead. I wouldn't recommend if you're trying to blend heavily or if you have something you plan on spending a lot of time and effort on.
Great marker paper
Very nice marker paper, holds the color well, easy to use.
Love this marker paper!
from New Jersey
I just love this marker paper. I used it for calligraphy practice with all types of markers, gel pens and ink. Tombow, Zig and Pentel brush markers stand up well on this paper. I even use sumi and walnut ink with a dip pen...no bleed through and no feathering. Love it...
Made a great gift
from East Moline, IL
I gave this gift to a close friend for Christmas. He uses a lot of Copic brand sketch markers on his art, so this was the perfect present for him. He says, "It hold the marker well and doesn't bleed through the paper."
Smooth and great for color blending
I had art markers but I never had paper pads just for markers until I get this product. I love how marker moves smoothly on the sheet and so color blending is much easy. Also no ink stain on the next page, which is nice that I don't have to remove the paper from the pad to draw.
