These are excellent postcards...

These are excellent postcards for doing etegami, especially for beginners.
For a paper intended for etegami, they have a minimal level of "bleed" so your ink and your watercolor will be a little difficult to control, but the effect for etegami is quite lovely and charming.
Please bear in mind that this paper is not intended for traditional western-style watercolor painting. The previous commenter said that the paper made the watercolor blotchy -- that is quite true. The paper is meant to be used for etegami, where there traditionally a "
"runniness" to the paint. The quality of the paper is delicate, meant to enhance the "bleed" of ink and watercolor.

Blotchy, crappy, absorbs water terribly, and I do really LIGHT washes for watercolor postcards, i'm horribly disappointed i've loved 95% of the things i've ordered from jet pens, but this is not one of them.
