I am glad that I found a place where I can get this I tried Strathmore smooth newsprint its not as good as Seth cole. I tried this newsprint when I lived in California and I was hooked. I looked on Amazon but the seller seemed sketchy then I found Dew drafting supplies and I ordered and I got it at a reasonable amount of time. I will definitely order more in the future. As far as the paper it is smooth and I love both 18 x 24 and 12 x 18. The only downside which is slight if your tearing off a page be careful the paper is brittle and you will rip your page.
