Paper is essential to drafting, but there are some things you have to consider before you decide what works for your specific project. Final drawings are done on archival quality paper, because the paper and image will last for years. When choosing paper, a few things are important. It needs to contrast well with the colors of pen and pencil. It also needs to be firm and not too flexible, because the drawing will stay intact for a longer period of time. If you’re using an erasable medium, you want the paper to stand up well. You also want it to limit the number of streaks, ghost lines, smudges, and tears. There are several types of paper used for drafting, and all of them can be used with graphite or ink. They do, however, have qualities that make them more suitable for a specific type of medium.


Strathmore Mixed Media Paper provides a vellum drawing surface that’s perfect for all types of wet and dry media, while its Toned-Gray Paper gives you a mid-toned background that can save you time because you won’t have to fill in the middle color. Strathmore’s Toned Mixed Media Paper is the perfect hybrid. Not only is it a heavy-duty paper at 184 pounds, but it can also work with any type of wet and dry media. People love this paper because of its versatility, which is why Engineer Supply offers it in our store. Feel free to look at the broad selection we have in stock. We’re sure you’ll be able to find a product that will meet your specific needs.

Frequently Asked Questions

What's the best way to handle my ink cartridges?

Make sure you keep your printer ink cartridges in their original packaging until you’re ready to install them. They can be stored between 5 and 95 degrees Fahrenheit, but you should try to keep them from experiencing extreme temperature fluctuations. Most new ink cartridges are partly covered by a plastic clip, which protects it while it’s in transit. And it should be removed before you install it in your printer. It’s also common for ink cartridges to have a piece of tape that covers the gold contacts, which you'll also have to remove. Once their installed, try to use them a couple of times a week because it will keep them from drying out.

Do unused ink cartridges go bad after a certain period of time?

The shelf life of replacement ink cartridges will vary with what you’re currently using, but most original cartridges will last up to 24 months. Compatible cartridges that aren’t made by the manufacturer will typically last up to 36 months. But over time, the ink will dry out and settle inside. This can cause your printer to clog. To keep this from happening, you should print something every couple of weeks so your cartridges stay primed.

What is a remanufactured ink cartridge?

Also called “recycled printer cartridges,” remanufactured ink cartridges are sent to a manufacturer that will replace the ink as well as any parts that are damaged or not working properly. And once it has been restored, a quality test is performed. They’re made from recycled ink cartridges that have already been used, which are taken apart and refitted with new ink or toner. Most manufacturers make it easy for you to recycle printer ink cartridges, which can not only save you money but can also benefit the environment.

Why should I recycle my ink cartridges?

Here are some of the reasons why you should recycle your printer ink cartridges:
  • Reduces Environmental Impact— Millions of ink cartridges are thrown away every single year, and it can take up to 1,000 years for them to decompose. Recycling your ink cartridges can reduce the amount of air and water pollution (because of having to manufacture new cartridges), but it can also save energy.
  • Produces Less Waste— Even though the cartridge isn’t usable, it doesn’t mean it’s completely out of ink. This is especially true for tri-color cartridges, where not every color has completely run out. By recycling used ink cartridges, the remaining ink can be used (which can reduce the amount of waste). And even if it can’t be used, it can be disposed of in a way that won’t impact the environment.
  • Economic Benefits— Because recycling is cheaper than having to handle general waste, it can be beneficial to the economy because governments will be able to save money.

How many times can I refill my ink cartridges?

The number of times you can refill an ink cartridge depends on how well it was taken care of between refills as well as on the quality of the inkjet print head. Until it wears out, you can continue to perform a printer ink cartridge refill. But as a rule of thumb, you can do it up to seven times before it becomes unusable.
