Comments about Canson XL Recycled Bristol Pads:
Here's the deal. I haven't used this product yet. Hence the "average" ratings. I use Bristol board extensively and was running out and needed to acquire more. I looked and the price was agreeable. When I received the product I was pleasantly surprised. The items were well packaged and undamaged. What I liked about the paper was that it had two sides. Don't know if this is commonplace, never noticed it before because I just usually just sit down and draw but, if it is not commonplace, I was impressed with the idea. I don't expect any issues with the paper and was completely happy with what I received.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I love this Bristol!
from Vista, CA
Seriously, Blick online orders are the way to go not only for price but also for convenience. Thanks, Blick!
Great heavy stock paper
I use this Bristol board for postcards. It stands up to light washes and is lovely for ink drawings. I have also used it for small 3D projects and for teaching myself pop-up techniques. A very nice paper to work and play with.

This is the first time I have used Bristol paper. What I really like is having both vellum and smooth in the same pad of paper. This is a matter of which side of the paper is used. In my opinion, this gives bang for the buck. I use this paper in doing Zentangle inspired art.One minor draw back is that it doesn't seem to take shading well. This could just be me. I have tried Micron pens, drawing pens of different brands, different brands of colored pencils and Sharpies, and I have liked the feel of each on this paper. I have had some papers that will wick the ink of a Sharpie, so there is not a nice clean line, but that is not the case with this paper.I will be ordering more of this paper in the future. I don't know how this compares to other brands of Bristol, as I have not tried other brands out yet. I am slowly testing out different papers with the different mediums I am using.
Great for drawing!
