Borden & Riley, considers this paper to the the "finest paper in the industry for all kinds of pen and ink work."
"It has a smooth hard surface for every type of pen including Technical Dip and Ruling Pen. No feathering, bleeding or breaking up of fine lines."
I bought this pad of 108# paper several years ago at a local art supply store, (You can find it online at Blick) and I was under the impression that you could use it with permanent markers (I was using Prismacolor at the time) and that it wouldn't bleed.
Not so... as you can see from this example where I used a Sharpie and a Bic Mark-it. The Bic actually bled through to the next page. I guess I misinterpreted what this paper was to be used for. I do love the shiny flat surface, and colors really pop - but I might need to reconsider my future use of this paper unless I can remember to place a blank sheet behind the one I am currently working on.
