This is the replacement for Beckett Expression. Our demo artists are satisfied that its qualities are the same. Ultimate White is exactly the same as Beckett Expression Radiance, with no recycled content. However, the other three shades now have a recycled content that Beckett Expression didn't. However, colored pencils and such react the same with this new cardstock as they did with Beckett Expression.
We have heard from a customer who does mostly Copics who feels that Strathmore Premium does not blend as well with Copics as Beckett Expression did. If this is a concern for you, you might want to consider Neenah Classic Crest -- we tested it and Beckett Expression years ago and found them to blend identically with both Copics and colored pencils.
Super smooth 80# cardstock, outstanding with Copic Markers or for blending with colored pencils. Acid-free. 8½" x 11", available in four shades and an assortment pack. Ultimate White is just a little brighter than Bright White. Bright White also available in 130#.
Here is a color guide if you're looking for colors that you used to purchase in Beckett Expression:
