We listened to artist requests for a series of pads with covers that can be customized. Our new line of Vision pads feature a tear-away fly sheet that reveals a heavyweight, blank cover made from high quality, steel blue mixed media paper… just waiting for you to put your art on it!

Featuring extra high sheet counts and extra durability, this affordable line delivers key performance characteristics for sketching, drawing, mixed media and watercolor art.

All Strathmore Vision products are proudly made in the U.S.A. and are acid free.

FAQ: What is the pound weight of your 500 Series Bristol paper?

The weight of our 500 Series Bristol paper is measured in plies. We carry 2-ply, 3-ply and 4-ply, however many artists want to know what the equivalent pound and gsm weights are. Find out in our latest blog ● LINK IN BIO ●

A little background on ply weights:

Bristol paper typically refers to drawing paper that has been pasted together to form a multi-ply board. It derives its name from the early days of European papermaking when ills would send their finest paper to Bristol, England for pasting. Forming multi-plied drawing boards provides a stiff, strong surface to work on without the need for mounting.

A 2-ply Bristol paper refers to two sheets of drawing paper that have been pasted together. A 3-ply refers to 3 sheets pasted together, and a 4-ply refers to 4 sheets pasted together. The more plies, the thicker the board will be.
