I was ecstatic to get this stack of blending paper. I'm loving my Copic markers and you really do need the blending paper, so I'm thrilled to have a great big stack of it. I'm grateful that scrapbook.com sells a large ream of it and I should be set for quite a while. I was down to my last square because I'm new to Copics and only bought 10 sheets. Now I can stamp and color to my hearts content. Works great in my laserjet printer for digital images too. I have not tried other blending papers yet but wouldn't think of using regular cardstock. Even when I'm testing colors I use scraps of X-Press It. Die-cuts and embosses beautifully too.
The paper is perfect for Copic Markers, very smooth. I liked the feel and texture, because I am getting true colors.
