on 2012-01-03 Great value. Works well. Works with Melissa & Doug easel.
This Paper Roll White
is 18" wide and 75' in length of white bond paper and is sized just right for use with the Alex Toys Magnetic Artist Easel
and the Alex Super Art Table with Paper Roll and Two Benches
(as well as other ALEX easels), and it is also compatible with the Melissa & Doug Deluxe Standing Easel
. The paper is bright white. At 75' in length, it provides as much usable paper as the 3x25' Melissa & Doug Deluxe Easel Paper (3 pack bundle)
rolls for less than half the price. At time of purchase, this roll was cheaper than the comparable 75' roll by M&D, but today the M&D roll is cheaper by almost a dollar. Having used both (ALEX and M&D), I haven't seen any significant difference between the two paper sources.
Depending on what you want to use for, if you are getting paper for kids to doodle on this is perfect. I cannot recommend it for water colors, because it comes apart easily when wet. It can also be used as a photographic backdrop (because it is so bright-white) if handled carefully so as not to cause too many wrinkles.
There is also a 12" wide version and 100' in length Alex Paper Roll White, 12"X100'
, so make sure you order the appropriate size.

I searched online a lot before purchasing this roll of paper and I am so pleased that I took the time to read everyone's reviews and check out prices. I am SO happy with this roll! The width is great for us and I especially like the thickness of the paper. It has a light sheen to it so it doesn't just soak up water from paint and end up sopping wet. The thickness of the paper is good, also, for saving the pictures that are created, so that they will last a long time. I will definitely be buying this one again when we run out, which will be a while because there is so much! This is the one to buy if you are looking.

Great quality paper
Great quality paper. I use it for my daughter's easel. She loves it, and it holds up really well to crayon, marker, pen, pencil, water color, finger paint, and who knows what else she smears on it.

Purchased this for painting and crayon usage. Good quality paper; not flimsy and like that it's 18" wide not the 12". No, we don't have a cutter for it.
It's simple enough to just use scissors. Will be buying this roll again!

Used these with a Melissa and Doug easel. The ones that fit my easel are 12" across and are too small, not to mention too expensive. So I used a chop saw and cut this down to the exact size which gives my son more coloring area.

Good quality paper
Good paper for a child easel.
on 2012-11-29 Great replacement paper
Initial purchase was the Alex Super Art Table with Paper Roll and Two Benches
which came with one roll of paper. Once the kids quickly went through that roll, I purchased two of these replacement paper rolls. The paper is a flat white color that nicely accepts pencil, crayon, markers, etc. without difficulty or smearing. The paper is heavy enough to stand up to the typical scribbling of my toddler and school age kids without tearing; however, it is easy enough to tear off sections using the built in plastic paper cutter in our art table. Overall an excellent product at a reasonable price.

Great quality! We place it on our dining room table for our 5 year old to draw on and he loves it!
