  • Canson The Wall 500 x 700 220gsm $5.60

Thanks to its unique innovative manufacturing process, ink will never bleed through Canson The Wall, even when it is subject to heavy and repeated use of markers. With a smooth and high white surface, the contrast of colours is enhanced and it allows its users to create large and solid tint areas with no blotching for a professional result look. Its weight (220 gsm) offers a perfect compromise between rigidity and flexibility to ensure ease of use. No waste with The Wall, it provides excellent results even when used on both sides.
