..::Product Review::.. U.S. Art Supply Manga-Marker Paper Pad

My Review of the U.S. Art Supply Manga-Marker Paper Pad

What is it exactly?

     From the website. . .
"Acid Free, Neutral pH, Natural White Sheets, Ideal for Sketching and Mixed Dry Media.  Marking Pen Paper with a Smooth Uniform Surface that is Virtually Bleedproof.  Ideal paper for Drawing with Ink Pens, Water and Permanent Markers & All Pencils. Pad of 24-Sheets, 60 Pound (100 gms) paper."


I was sent a pad of 24-sheets of Manga/Marker Illustration Paper from U.S. Art Supply to review.  

The price for this pad is $6.96.  Shipping is free with Amazon Prime.

Packaging & Presentation of the U.S. Art Supply Manga-Marker Paper Pad

I am happy to say that this pad of paper arrived in great condition.  It was shipped in a plastic cellophane wrap, so no pages were dirty or bent. There were no damages during shipment (bending, tearing, etc.).  It was easy to open.

The only information was printed on the bottom front of the pad.  It tells you what this is, and how to use it.  It gives the dimensions and quantity of sheets.  The brand name and UPC are both in the lower right hand corner.

My Personal Experience with the U.S. Art Supply Manga-Marker Paper Pad

I am familiar with Manga, but I cannot draw it.  No way.  BUT, I like to draw in general, and this is the paper that really gives you the most freedom.  You can draw with practically any medium that you'd like:

+ Ink Pens
+ Water & Permanent Markers
+ All Pencils

This paper is bleedproof, meaning that when you draw, the marker's ink will not seep through to the next sheet (or on your table if you rip the paper out).  This is an extremely smooth paper, and has an almost glossy surface.  There are 24 large sheets, so you can really do a lot with this.  The pad is sealed on the top with rubber tape, and protected on the back with a thicker piece of cardboard.

Pros of the U.S. Art Supply Manga-Marker Paper Pad
  • Very smooth surface.
  • You can use a bunch of different instruments to draw on this.
  • Does not bleed through.
  • (24) 9.0" x 12.0" sheets at a great price!
Cons of the U.S. Art Supply Manga-Marker Paper Pad
  • I haven't found any cons of this paper.

This pad is amazing.  I have a ton of gel pens that I love to draw and color with, but the only problem is that they bleed through your typical run of the mill paper.  These pages do NOT bleed through, and I can use a lot more pressure than I normally can.  The pages are very smooth, and they have almost a slippery feel.  Almost like the shiny side of a poster board.  It holds the color nicely.  I also love how each page is a little bigger than your normal printer paper.  I love to draw, and I have been loving the freedom of this illustration paper.  I definitely recommend it.
