DescriptionSpecificationsQuestions & Answers
Postcard pack contains 10 pieces. Paper has a blur degree of 5 and is exquisitely made with three layers and has a great finish.

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.

I am a go-to person here in San Diego for etegami supplies which are very hard to find in the USA. I love that you carry the Akashiya postcards, at a reasonable price, and usually my order qualifies for free shipping. This one is my favorite *bleed or blur* level. All 5s are not made alike. With this I get blur, but not TOO much.

Don't try and use these for watercolour paintings! Unless you plan on using only a dash of water, the paper separates into layers IMMEDIATELY when wet, and the surface starts peeling.
I love the texture, and you can get some seriously interesting effects with a fountain pen or similar tools, but this is not a paper that holds up to abuse.
