Nice quality sketching paper at a great price - I'm a huge fan of the Canson XL Recycled Sketch pads - the paper has a little bit of grit and a really nice feel - other sketch pads that are more like copy paper do not start to compare. Highly recommend!
Best budget art paper
I use this paper for casual printmaking work, and it's great for that purpose. It's nicer than computer paper, but not so fancy that you need to fear wasting a higher end paper on a test print. I buy the glued-edge pads instead of the spiral bound which is easier to pull a page off.
Good product for a good price!

I love this paper. My only complaint is that a few of the sketchbooks came with paper that was damaged, or folded over. This wasn't a shipping error, but a production error, even if a minor one.

Handy handy handy
from san jose, ca
I get these in the 3.5" x 5.5" 100 sheet pads to chuck in my purse for quick sketching. They are really inexpensive, so I don't mind if they get a little dinged up or if a friend needs a piece for a note paper while out and about. (my friends never believe me when I tell them I don't have a pen or paper on me, and when I argue they just look at me like "Yah right, cough it up" till I hand them a pen and a sheet of paper.)The paper itself is really good for quick sketches with pencil or colored pencil although they do tend to bleed with most pens, even some gel pens, so unless you do your field sketching with ball point pens and don't mind denting the next few sheets, skip the ink on these.They are REALLY good for sketching out ACEO ideas as they are the right width for that and this leaves you about 2 " of paper to make color and subject notes on for when you get back to the studio or someplace where you can sit down and get out your ACEO making stuff. I also really like the cover hinge. And any pad that's around 2$ that has 100 sheets and fits in your purse is deal enough for me!
