Wouldn't it be great to share your artwork with friends in a convenient way? These Japanese postcards are made of special paper that is perfect for drawing on. The special art pieces can be then sent to special friends to brighten their day. Each postcard paper is suited for different drawing purposes and carries a different blur degree. "Blur" refers to the blending capability of the paper, or its degree of absorbency that allows colors to blur on the paper. The degree of blur is ranked from one (least) to five (most). Low degrees are suitable for calligraphy and letters, high degrees are beautiful for watercolors and painting.

These are excellent paper for doing etegami. They have a fairly high level of "bleed" so your ink and your watercolor are bound to be a little difficult to control, but the effect for etegami is quite lovely and charming. The previous commenter said that the paper cannot handle erasing -- that is quite true. The paper is meant to be used for etegami, where there traditionally is no use of pencil and no erasing. The quality of the paper is delicate, meant to enhance the "bleed" of ink and watercolor, and it does not deal well with the abrasion of erasing. If you intend to do drawing with pencil and may need to erase, do not use this type of paper, as that is not the intended purpose.

These postcards can't handle much erasing AT ALL to my horror, I erased once and took off the smoothness of the card. Extremely expensive for bad material :/ i'm horribly disappointed i've loved 95% of the things i've ordered from jet pens, but this is not one of them. I can't return them.... since I painted on one LOL and threw it away....
