Comments about Legion Papers Legion Parchtone Paper:
These sheets are big. They accept ink well. I have had some success using acrylic paint on the surface as well. If the paint is too thin the paper warps a bit. I haven't stretched the paper. Seems like you can use either side, but as the surface is somewhat translucent, you can not turn in over and paint on the other side.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Very good product.
from Exeter, NH
This was tricky to find, but a pretty good value.Well packaged but one corner had a fold in it that won't matterfor my use. I do large calligraphy pieces that are printed on this paper.
Next Time I'll Start My Search At Blick
from University Place, WA
I was surprised that none of the art supply stores in the Seattle area carried parchment paper except for a few small tablet options. Since I will be making a framed gift with calligraphy, I needed a sheet at least 16" x 20" or 18" x 24." I finally discovered Blitz's website that not only had the antique-looking gold color that I was looking for, but also large sheets that could be cut down to size (that will supply me with "scraps" that will be used for smaller projects). Since each sheet was reasonably priced, I didn't mind the 10-sheet minimum order requirement. I was pleased with the prompt delivery and the care taken in wrapping for shipping. I appreciate that the sheets were shipped flat and that I will be able to store the sheets in the compact cardboard folder. I probably should be worried that the cardboard isn't acid free and could discolor the paper, but I'm not. I do have some acid free tissue paper somewhere though. Maybe for minimum orders this could be provided? My ink-on-paper sample passed the test - not too waxy for the ink I will be using.My daughter in college plans on doing a large acrylic painting on one of the sheets, maybe a sepia-tone-looking piece which I look forward to seeing. I'm a happy customer and plan on ordering more products in the future. Oh! Thank you for having an easy website! I've weeded out many websites just because they made it so hard to place an order!

Holds the fountain pen ink very well.
from North Caorlina
The paper sheets were delivered very well packaged. The presentation is unique; I cut it, and use it for handwritten notes, using fountain-pen ink. There is no bleed-through or feathering.
