Comments about All-Purpose Chipboard:
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).
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This product is excellent for use as book/binder covers.It makes light weight shelving for organizers.It is hard to compress and has a multitude of uses as back board material.The smooth surfaces is easy to print pictures and text on with little to no ink bleeding.It is great for creating game boards.
I use it for handmade journals and it is perfect. It is nice and rigid yet I had not problem cutting to the size I needed. The boards shipped very well with no bent corners. I did order 10 sheets figuring 10 would ship better than a couple.

Repeated purchase. No better product for this price!
from Gilbert, SC
I used this product with the Krystalseal bags in looking for an economical way to protect prints for resale. I found it to be durable but easy to cut. I would definately recommend this product for thst purpose.
Great price. Quick delivery

Got several sheets of this to put behind prints that would be viewed at an art show. Needed a sturdier way to present the prints, so that people could flip through multiple prints without damage. The prints were also placed in sealed Clear Bags containers.Items came quickly, too.
Cheap Laser-engraveable Modeling Material
from Friendswood, Texas
I bought the chipboard after reading about a model railroad structure builder using the material as a substrate for tiny basswood strips. My goal was to use it for laser engraving and cutting and as a replacement for the difficult to obtain 1.5 mm MDF which comes from the United Kingdom. While the board does not have the bend-resistance of the MDF, it is more than adequate for building scale models. Reinforcement can be added to the backside of modeled components if necessary, to alleviate unwanted bending.The material is very dense and is obviously a recycled (and very green) product. I used it in my laser engraver and it worked very well, although the power settings need to be higher than for materials of the same thickness such as Taskboard. Confirming the recycled nature of the product were minute flashes caused by the laser beam striking tiny, micro-thin pieces of aluminum. These micro shards are way too small to cause any problems in fabrication or usage. I am continuing to find new uses for the product.

I use it for patterns for leather products, it holds its shape well and will last a long time
Perfect for making a boardgame board!
from Lancaster, PA
I searched for a while both locally and online to find chipboard thick enough to make a board for a boardgame I am working on. This chipboard is perfect, it's thick and not too difficult to cut with a rotary cutter! I would definitely buy it again.

Needed firm tagboard, paint-able, staple-able
I needed some tagboard that was paintable, stable-able, as part of a rough construction project. This chipboard was perfect. 1/16 inch thick, tough, it won't bend and break. Need a power saw to cut, though, this isn't kids poster board.I feel lucky to have found this site with these products.
