cretinbob: Have you considered getting a 36" roll of blotter acid?


Many, many times.

Uchiha_Cycliste: How thick is it?
I usually work on a drawing table or with a 2'x3' clipboard.
How do you make use of something like that? How do you preserve the work? Is it like a big scroll? So many questions.


You can get all different types. I don't think they would do well with watercolors but maybe... i really don't know. They load up in plotters for printing plans. In our office, we've got plain paper, extra heavy bond, vellum, heavy gloss for photos, etc. Mostly we use a bond that's a little bit heavier and a little bit nicer than plain copy paper.

They'd be a little unwieldy to carry on a bike, but if you stash a roll at home, you can cut it to whatever length you want. The rolls that we use are 36" long, but they make bigger and smaller ones as well.

One drawback I can think of is that the paper would tend to want to curl a little bit but I work with 24 x 36 plans all day and it's not really a big problem. Just a thought.

It's an interesting idea. Definitely worth trying at some point.
I have a couple of pads of 18''x24'' drawing paper, and I've found that curling definitely becomes a concern when the paper becomes more heavily laden with paint, or colored pencils, or whatever medium I'm concentrating on. I usually combat the problem by using the aforementioned clipboard and binder clips. Either way, you've definitely planted the seed, and I'm sure it will sprout.

sxacho: Have you considered getting a 36" roll of plotter paper?


Artists can benefit from hitting up offset web printers for "butt rolls" which are rolls which do not have enough paper to run a job and are typically thrown out or recycled. roll lengths from 18-38" generally; when I worked with a web I regularly saw butt rolls with 3-5" of paper outside of the 3" core IIRC.

Any grade from newsprint, offset, coated text, return post, & cover would be available with varying results between shops.

Fun Facts: My last web that I estimated for sheeted 22.75x38" forms 5/5 inks at 55,000 impressions per hour with dozens of inline web splitting, folding, perf/scoring options and it photographed every sheet automatically adjusting ink levels to maintain color accuracy with the approved Epson proof.

When I was a kid, I used to get 11 & 12 confused. So counting down I would usually say 11-12-10...

That is today's date. Weird, huh?

Another approach is make friends with a print purchaser or wholesaler, and purchase 500-1500 sheets of choice stock at a huge discount compared to those spiral bound pads you're using.

18x24 comes from a 24x36" sheet size, cutting charges vary, but printers will often be less than paper companies. You could avoid cutting all together if you purchase 19x25" sheets, but that depends on the grade. Different grades come in different standard sizes. Going with sheets comes with a price tag compared to butt rolls, but likely 60-80% less than hobby lobby pads.

What are you using? I could probably provide a decent path to explore and look in my wholesale pricing book here to give a general idea of potential costs...
