I needed something heavier than 50# banner paper to use as cover sheets on large art folders, but the cost of black art paper is astronomical. This was just right. Calling it construction paper is a little misleading, it is smoother and better fiber quality than traditional construction paper, and it doesn't hold a curl when you unroll it. The only drawback might be the 500' length - the full roll is very heavy to lift and a little difficult to work with. All in all this is a very good value product for a variety of uses.
