Welcome to dickblick
An ideal surface for students and teachers to practice on, Blick Wonder-Cut Linoleum offers softness and consistency with no slippage.
Wonder-Cut linoleum is easier to cut than our softer Golden-Cut, yet holds sharp lines with no crumbles, for clear, sharp prints.
Pencil-drawn cut lines are easily visible on Wonder-Cut's light color — and a slower hardening process offers the longest shelf life of any Blick linoleum, ideal for classroom settings.
Wonder-Cut has a natural jute unmounted backing and measures ¼" thick.

Perfect for Young Children
By Inkface 247
from Portland, OR
Comments about Blick Wonder-Cut Linoleum:
I purchased a large amount of the wonder-cut because they were back ordered on the regular golden linoleum and it was a big waste of money. Although easy to cut, the spongy, porous quality of this material is terrible for attaining any kind of line quality. It's very mushy and tends to squish out ink when printed. This would be perfect for teaching a class of younger children but for any standard printmaking projects it's pretty awful.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Returned this cheap product. No detail was able to be achieved with this "wonder" product. Terrible. The comparison with this and Blick Blue Easy-to-Cut or real linoleum using a #1 blade is like a watermelon to a kumquat. No comparison: skinny blade = fat line. Don't buy, except maybe for a 6 year old.
Not the best
By Jackie the art teacher
from Denver, CO
I like some of the other softer products better. This doesn't cut as clean and smooth. Its a cheap solution.
bought a whole roll... bummer
By Hugh Brisman
from Winchester, CA
Will not print clean. It has a texture, and absorbs ink. Wastes a lot of ink and time. Not cool, disappoints new students.
Merchant response: We're sorry to hear that the Wonder-Cut isn't giving you the results you expected. It sounds like you might be happier with the Golden-Cut, and we'd like to work with you to make sure you have a product that will meet your needs. We hope you'll give us a call at 1-800-933-2542 (8am-5:30pm CST M-F) or email email@example.com. We look forward to hearing from you!
Wonderful product and service!!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
I used this in my senior printmaking class and we were EXTREMELY frustrated with the quality of the actual prints. It has this rough cork-like texture that absorbs water-soluable ink and makes ugly, uneven looking prints. Even with a lot of acrylic retarding medium we had great difficulty getting a clean print, and had to over-ink the plates to try and get rid of that texture.
Merchant response: We're sorry to hear that you weren't happy with the quality of prints made with the Wonder-Cut. Please know that our Product Specialists are more than happy to advise you about other products which, through not as economical for classroom use, would offer a smoother surface and crisper lines. Just call 1-800-933-2542 (weekdays 8am - 5:30pm CST) or email firstname.lastname@example.org, and they'll be happy to help you!
Did not perform well
Wonder-cut did not work well for my students. It was no easier to carve than battleship linoleum and it printed poorly. The surface is pitted (not smooth), which doesn't allow for an even inking and a consistent print. I would not recommend this product
Truly Easy to Cut
By Addicted to fiber
from Washington State
I bought this by accident. I am a battleship grey kind of gal, and this falls short for fine lines. It is super fun and easy--almost like a fine grained cork. It is not annoyingly soft either, like the slippery white variety. I think this material is best-suited for a high school printmaking class.
was apprehensive at first
from Libertytown, MD
Was mildly apprehensive when I first got this lino, however after a few lines were cut all of that disappeared. Seems to damage and loose small pieces less than the other linoleum available. As an added bonus it is extremely cost effective! Will be using this lino from now on.
Terrible for baren printing
This linoleum has given me the worst printing experience by far of all print matrices I've tried out. I've never had trouble with printing using a baren with any combination of materials I've tried but this lino has just been awful. Prints come out splotchy, have excess grain and require way more pressure to print to 90lb paper than I personally can apply to the page.
Merchant response: We're sorry to hear that this linoleum isn't printing well for you. Although the softer-cutting material has its advantages, the texture of the blocks makes it necessary to ink them rather heavily to get the best print. For a linoleum that's still softer than Battleship Gray but smoother than the Wonder-Cut, we suggest the Blick Golden-Cut Linoleum.
