Want to know more about Sketch Pads & Books

What Are Sketch Pads?

Art sketch pads are special types of notebooks that are well-suited for drawing, painting, and other activities. Similar to notebooks, many paper drawing pads are perforated near the binding, making it easy to remove the paper once the project is finished. Some of them are specially made with textured paper to be compatible with things like watercolor paints and markers. Unlike standard loose-leaf notebook paper, sketch pads are intended to use for illustrative work. The sheets of paper found in them are thicker than printer paper, so they are sturdy enough to support projects that contain rich and dark colors.

What Types of Sketch Pads Are Available?

There is a sketch pad suitable for any project, regardless of the art style. Although all of them generally fulfill the same purpose, they have a variety of differences that can make or break any assignment. Landscape-oriented drawing pads, for example, are best suited for artists who prefer to paint scenery. For novice artists who are trying to get in plenty of practice, Quill has an array of choices that have 100 sheets of paper or more. Hardcover art drawing pads are perfect for those who want to preserve their art without having to remove it from the binding and frame it.

What Factors Should You Consider When Purchasing a Drawing Notepad?

Whether you’re an artist with years of experience or a novice looking to hone your craft, there’s a sketch pad made just for you. Not all drawing pads are made equally and there are a few factors to take into consideration when choosing the right one to buy, such as:

  • Size: Standard sketch pads usually fit into most backpacks or bags, making them easy to take on the go. Some of them can be as compact as 6 inches by 9 inches.
  • Materials: Drawing pads with sturdy covers are essential for protecting important projects from dirt and other elements. Hardcover sketch pads, for example, are perfect for ensuring that the paper inside doesn’t get damaged.
  • Customization: Certain models come with accessories and other extras that allow you to personalize your booklets, like glossy stickers and flashy border outlines.
  • Design: Some sketch pads are ideal for daily art class and quick doodles, while others are filled with durable cardstock that can be used to create things like greeting cards and personalized invitations.
