Hey all,

Has anyone tried out Dick Blick’s smooth newsprint? They sell it in 500 sheet reams, which can be a steal considering the max I can get from a strathmore pad for smooth newsprint is 50 sheets. The only question I have is if it’s as smooth as Strathmore’s offering, or better – I’ve had some instances in the past with getting newsprint that is labeled as smooth…only to turn out that it is in fact rough.

Here’s the link for those curious: http://www.dickblick.com/products/blick-all-purpose-newsprint/

I’m going to be restocking on newsprint pretty soon, so if anyone has any thoughts on this it’d be greatly appreciated.
