Drawing & Printmaking Paper

Inglewood Art offers a selection of drawing paper in full sheet sizes. Most papers are multi-purpose and are ideal for a number of different art mediums. Drawings can be done on watercolour, pastel and print papers so experiment with different textures and surfaces. Drawing paper differs from both print and watercolour papers in that they are typically not sized and therefore do not handle heavy applications of water. Some drawing papers are more suitable for light uses of wet media and others for dry media. We offer a variety of paper brands in both loose stock (full sheets), pads and rolls of paper.

Printmaking paper is externally sized allowing the paper to be pre-soaked (intaglio) and for the ink to sit on the surface (silkscreen, blockprinting). Inglewood Art carries Stonehenge, Arches Cover, BFK Rives and Somerset Satin papers that are most commonly used for prints, but are also some of the best drawing papers.
