Welcome to dickblick
Specially formulated for Dick Blick, we import this linoleum from Europe several times a year to provide the softest quality possible. It gives a finely detailed, sharp, clear print.
For best results, be sure your blades are sharp! Dull blades are dangerous and frustrating, especially to students. Because of the natural aging process, linoleum should be used within a year of its purchase to take advantage of its peak softness.
For your convenience, we offer our 1/8" (3 mm) thick linoleum by the square foot, in pre-cut pieces, by the roll and mounted on blocks.
Pre-Cut Pieces — For your convenience, we offer our unmounted linoleum in packages of pre-cut pieces in popular sizes.
Mounted Blocks — We've mounted our fine-quality, battleship gray linoleum on a 3/4" thick, pressed wood block for easier handling. Total thickness is 7/8".
Linoleum in Rolls — Enjoy extra savings on the same battleship gray linoleum in rolls. Cut it yourself using a sharp knife or heavy-duty paper trimmer. Linoleum rolls require truck shipment, and do not qualify for Dick Blick's free shipping offers.

Good Product Marred by Poor Handling/Processing
By Linoleum Cutter
from North Carolina
Comments about Blick Battleship Gray Linoleum:
As of this review (2017), Dick Blick has maintained a relatively fresh stock of linoleum for the past 8 years. By fresh, I mean that the linoleum was recently manufactured and retains flexibility, a quality inherent to its function in relief printmaking. However, the company (Blick or otherwise) that cuts it down from the roll doesn't ensure that the pieces are square (90 degree angles). The linoleum is also roughly cut -- which means, that in most cases, I need to cut the linoleum edges to 90 angles so it doesn't look trapezoidal when framed and to avoid chipped edges in the printing process. So, plan on losing 1/2 inch on each side.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I'm very happy with the products and service and value as always !
As expected, and I would buy it again.
Thin pieces of lino which have a grey surface and cut away easily (especially when slightly warmed). I liked the various sizes available and that each piece can be cut to a different size if desired.
Buy it regularly and love it!

Use it for linocut prints and it works great!
Would be 5 stars if measurements were precise
I use the mounted blocks. They often vary 1/4" from the stated size, but not consistently, which does cause technical problems if i forget to measure and compensate all blocks for a specific multi print project.A nice thing: contrary to the description to use them within one year, ithey are fine years later if somewhat warm, say with a clamp lamp with 100w bulb aimed close at the lino while working.
cuts well but....
from Corinth, Vermont
I ordered a package of 6 and 3 were unusable! One had a terrible gouge in it and two others were so destroyed by tape as to render them useless.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Blocks aren't square and are not completely flat. They carve nicely, not much crumbling.

By the teacher
I hate this type of lino, especially when teaching kids. I had to drive 1 hour to the nearest Blick store to buy the soft lino.
