These packs includes 100 cold press or hot press paper postcards. These postcards are vegan friendly and use 230g acid-free, artist grade 100% cotton paper.

Why is acid-free and cotton paper important?

The best paper is acid-free and has a high amount of cotton because it means the paper is less prone to turning yellow or deteriorating over time. Also, the more cotton a paper has, the better it holds water and keeps the pigment much more vibrant.

How do I choose between Hot and Cold press paper?

It really depends on your preference:

Cold press paper has a slightly textured surface. It is the paper used most often by watercolour artists because it's good for both not only large areas of wash but also for a good amount of detail. Also, the textured paper allows to shape things easier!

Hot press paper has a fine-grained, smooth surface, with almost no tooth. It's ideal for large, even washes of one or two colors, drawing with pens and ink wash, and for painting fine details. The smooth surface makes it easier to draw and shade with dry mediums.

What are the measurements of the postcard and the box?

A box weighs about 500g (roughly 1 pound) and contains 100 postcards. Each postcard measures 14.8 x 10.5 cm (5.8 x 4.1 in). Just the right size to stamp and mail right away!
