They have created an ultra-white paper that contains a high level of Kaolin within the pulp for optimal overlaying and prevention of bleed through. Normal papers are usually too absorbent and will rapidly drain markers very quickly of ink, so these pads will help both keep your marker pens in good order, plus they'll last much longer on this kind of paper. The ultra-smooth paper is also good for drafting pens and fine liners as well as traditional dip pens.
