Acid-free. Created in 1893, this 100% cotton fiber paper is an industry standard. Available in regular and plate surfaces.

It is also suitable for washes and gouache. Both surfaces are excellent for airbrush. 23 in. x 29 in. sheets sold individually. #235

This paper works really well for the project I am working on and with my colored pencils.
Rated by: marilyn m. in Dallas, TX
Simply the best and always my choice for both pen and ink drawings and colored pencil. I ususally use the plate finish which gives a smooth, subtle finish.
Rated by: Marta W. in Clearwater, FL
I highly recommend Strathmore Bristol series 500. I use it for my pencil and charcoal artwork and I love the texture. This type of Bristol has nice tooth that taks enough medium and it's not too rough.
Rated by: Judy Z. in Frazier Park, CA
Great paper, I use it for all my work. I like the fast service and my paper was packed very well.
Rated by: Geoff C. in Emporia, KS
500 series 'plate' Bristol board is an excellent surface for use with technical pens. It handles a lot of reworking--but will not tolerate bending and twisting. The MisterArt shipping department treats it with great respect.
