versatile product, lots of uses
Comments about All-Purpose Chipboard:
I order this chipboard almost every year for my high school art students. We use it for a wide variety of projects including making books, additive sculptures, as a mount for delicate drawings and as a support for acrylic paintings. It cuts easily with the paper cutter or cardboard scissors and can be cut into (with care) using a utility knife. When using it for painting projects, I have the students coat it first with gesso on both sides, then they're ready to go. This product is one of my staples.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Exceptional quality and superb packaging/shipping
from Kissimmee, FL
I am a novice in the craft of cartonnage. Pre-cut kits are very expensive. The instructor that I have worked with recommended the weight that I purchased in order for me to do my own cutting. Purchasing the Dick Blick chipboard with its quality and cost, has made my craft extremely affordable and I am very proud of the finished product. I don't live near a Dick Blick store but I don't mind having this shipped. The cost is very reasonable and shipping is extremely fast. Happy all the way around with the company and this product.
I would like buy next time
from Lincoln, Ne
Very nice shopping
Great chipboard for posters and print support.
This chipboard is great for everyday uses -- I got it to support some posters and art prints in cellophane envelopes. Thin, but incredibly sturdy. I only wish they had more standard sizes -- 16x20, 11x17, 9x12, etc.. I did have to cut the sizes I needed (which will get old if I have large orders), but it still went quick enough with a nice sharp X-acto blade. That being said, they're a great deal, sturdy, good looking, and I'll be ordering them again. :)
Great for tempera!
from Franklin, Indiana
We use this for tempera paintings and the double thick warps very little.
I love this product!!!
from Los Angeles
I have been painting on canvas and archival paper for years but have recently been using chipboard. I love the results it gives especially if beginning with Gamblin PVA. I paint it on in one direction, let it dry and then apply in opposite direction. It is perfect for oil and acrylic. Its given me a "new" and interesting look to my work.

Great board for book binding
from Grand Rapids, MI
This was my first time purchasing chip board for bookbinding, and it arrived quickly and in great shape with no damage (a feat for such large sheets). The board is easily cut with a utility knife, and has worked great for binding my books.
Just what I needed!
from Kansas City
I use this product as backing board for shipping art prints. Works great and at a great price.
Good Quality and Great Service!

Use in graphic design, architecture classes. Instructor is repeat customer.
It has been nearly impossible to find a nice, heavy weight chipboard without pulling it off the back of art tablets. I ordered 1 sheet each of the 14 weight and the 30 as it I did not know how thick each was. The 14 will be perfect for slightly flexible covers for small journals. The 30 is what I was looking for as covers for art journals. Not so thick I cannot cut through it with an olfa rotary cutter, yet thick enough to not be 'bendy'. Articles arrived so well packed, none of the corners were dented or bent. I will be ordering all my chipboard from Dick Blicks. Cost per each goes way down with a purchase of 10 (mix and match is allowed).
