How many sheets ?

I believe there are 15 sheets. I bought this paper to use in my printer to print color copies of paintings. I do not recommend it for watercolor painting. It is student grade and if you’re serious about watercolor painting it’s best to use professional quality paper, paint and brushes. You also should use 140 lb cold press for watercolor painting. See cheap joe’s online for the best selection. Their american journey paints and kilamanjaro paper are very good quality.

Does this product have a spiral binding or a glue binding? And where is the binding? At the top or on the side?

Whoever answered spiral binding at the top — no. We expected that, and what arrived was perfect bound (glued) at the top.

How do you frame an acrylic painting done on canvas paper? I was traveling so used canvas paper to save space but paintings are worth framing.

You can get a frame with a special board you place it on. Your local framing place would help you. Also if your looking for something less expensive i would go to michaels. There framing section is affordable.

How many pages are in this book?

Can i use oil pastels on this?

The paper does have a texture, though, no smooth.

Will this paper work with a light box tracer?

Hi there! Yes, this would work to use with a light box.

Why is this double the price on amazon than it is in a store? On the strathmore site they’re 3.99

Shipping included in price.

Do you get 200 sheets or 10?


Can you paint on either side? One is cream and the other white. The side facing up in the book is cream. Thanks

You can paint on either side. The front is like a gessoed canvas and the back is non-gessoed.

Is this paper glossy on either side?

No, it is not.

How do you fit a 9’x12′ sketch pad into a 1.0 inches (h) x 1.0 inches (l) x 1.0 inches (w) package? (according to the product description)

I have no idea. Ours came in a large manila envelope. However our usps mail carrier folded it in half & left in mail box. So it was not usable.

Will this work with color pencils?

I am not sure, but could be. It’s prefereable with oils or acrylic.

I was wondering the people who arent prime members they still can buy it on july 13th

Of course you can but you just dont get the guaranteed 2 day shipping.

Can you use acrylic paint?

Yes, i believe it is best suited for acrylic paint

Can you ink on it without it warping (same for copic markers and water colors, too)?

You absolutely can ink on bristol (smooth & vellum) without it soaking through or warping. I’ve even used acrylic paints on this paper. Even though it tended to buckle somewhat while wet, this paper will flatten back out when completely dry. I’m confident that if this paper can handle acrylic paints, it can also handle watercolors, gouache, and copic markers. No, i didn’t stretch or size this paper before using acrylic paints on it.

Does the pad have a cardboard backing?

Thank you for your question! The pad has a chipboard backing.

Is it spiral ?

Hi there! Yes, this pad is spiral bound.

Is this canvas paper like fredrix canvas pads. Is it floppy like real canvas or is it more like cardstock?

It is like yardstick, not floppy fabric canvas.

Can anyone suggest some nice budget friendly colored pencils to go with for my autistic son?

I like the prang pencils. However, i bet that the crayola brand twistable pencil would be a good option. The prang type that i have need frequent sharpening, which can be frustrating.

Great for beginners

I wanted to get this for my daughter who is an aspiring artist and she loves keeping all of her artwork in one place. This is great!

Great for everyone!

I added these sketchbooks into our homeschool this year. Each kid has one that will last for the whole year, and they do a drawing assignment each day.

The paper quality has been great for them to draw and sketch on. However, i do not think that sketchbook will hold up for the whole school year. The back is sturdy with a thick cardboard piece on it, but just from turning the pages each day, they are starting to tear out. For those that are more careful with the books or for those who tear out their sketches, this is not a problem. It’s really a minor issue, and overall, we are pleased with these sketchbooks.

Thick sheets

I liked that the sheets were very thick and the price was good. This was for my child’s classroom for the year. It’s durable and doesn’t fall apart.

Papers not very thick

I understand that the paper is not mixed media but it is very thin. Whenever you even write it goes through to the other side. The quality is understandable for the price.

Just what i expected

Nice book

Packaging could have been better. The book was bent in the mail. I was able to straighten it out by placing heavy books on it over night. This is a nice gift!

Not as sheer as i like, but decent weight

Strathmore sells good products. They aren’t cheap, but quality is there. If you want sheer, this might not be the way to go. This paper is more translucent than transparent.

Affordable, but the glue at the top is weak and breaks. Pages become disconnected…

All around it's good paper. And you get a lot of it. But…

I absolutely love strathmore sketchbooks. Their paper is next level. And they have all types for all artists. I wasn’t expecting my typical 400 series awesome paper. It said that is was 200 series which they determine ‘good’ and i do like the paper. I got it from their strathmore store here on amazon because i’m crash coursing it as a beginner artist who found art to be the most therapeutic way to spend my time with a lifelong progressively degenerative genetic chronic illness that has caused me to be in bed almost all the time. The thing is, i do my art stuff (even painting which is rarer than i’d like) on my bed. The reason i didn’t give this paper 5 stars is because the large spiral causes my pages to slide around if i move and then it folds and creases my hard work (which makes sense for a thinner paper). Lastly my gel pens and ballpoint pens leave deep divets and even bleed through at times. In this case i can rarely use the other side of the page greatly minimizing the massive amount of pages i was expecting from this sketchbook. It has a ton of pages so that’s not a huge deal and man was it cheap. I paid very little for aa lot of decent drawing paper that’s good for swatching and sketching before final drawings, taking note and measurements and scrap drawing paper. I hate the spiral bound crazy amount of sliding around it does. The crevasses from my pens and the bleed through. So now i know to just spend the money for the better series and to have a bound sketchbook instead of the giant spiral.
Overall, decent paper, extremely affordable so we’ll worth buying. Definitely will not hold up to any sort.of wet medium. This is drawing paper only.
Hope this helps some of you! And happy arting. You’re getting better every time that pencil hits the paper!
