Welcome to dickblick
Add a dramatic black bevel to your mat designs! Crescent Black Core cuts cleanly, with no rub-off. The surface is made of the same high-quality, bleed and fade resistant paper as regular boards. The backing paper and the black core are acid-free.
Individual boards are 4-ply, and measure 1/16" (1.6 mm) thick. Sheet sizes are 20" × 32" (51 cm × 81 cm) and 32" × 40" (81 cm × 102 cm). Some colors are only available in one of the two sizes.
Crescent Regular Matboard is suitable for the vast majority of matting and framing applications. Where archival quality is needed, for fine art originals, valuable documents, limited edition prints and photos, and so forth, we recommend an archival grade such as Crescent Museum Grade Matboard.
We have arranged Crescent Regular Surface Matboard by color groups. If you are looking for particular color numbers, it may be easier to locate them using our All Colors page.
Handling Charge — When ordering sheets of paper or board larger than 18” x 24” in quantities of less than 10, a $3.00 per order handling fee applies. Paper or boards may be assorted to reach the quantity of 10.

Comments about Crescent Black Core Matboard:
Black core mats make the art wok look so much better than white mat borders.Side note: I was concerned that Hurricane Matthew would mean that I couldn't receive the black core mats for weeks. Blick Art Materials came through by delivering through wind, rain & a hurricane. I can now get back to painting!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I love this Black Core Mat Board!
from Livonia, MI
The quality of this Black Core Mat Board is what I would expect to get.The price is not inexpensive, but I can get a great variety of colors with Blick over the two colors that I can find locally. The price is similar except for once a month when I can get it on sale locally for about a dollar less. But only in those two colors. I do my own framing and like a good variety of colors.

My father recommended I pre-purchase my mat board for some art he gave me since it is a standard item. Since he uses dickblick.com all the time I already knew the item would be good quality for good value. I must confess I was concerned about how something so thin and delicate would arrive safely. I was super impressed by the packaging! I will order with complete confidence in the future. Thank you for great service!

I MAKE MY OWN BARN BOARD FRAMES. I DOUBLE AND TRIPLE MAT MY PHOTO'S. THE BLACK CENTER CORE GETS MANY GOOD COMMENTS. REALLY SETS THE FOCUS ON THE PRINTS. NO BODY IN MY AREA IS PRESENTING THEIR WORK THIS WAY.
Would purchase again, as affordable suppliers are limited
from Huntersville NC
As black core mat boards go, the purchased supply is usable, dependable and nice. I have, however, purchased better quality ones before that were a bit thicker and more solid. Still, for the price, this is solid. I use the black core mat boards to frame my sumi-e artwork. Because the medium requires using very thin rice paper, it is imperative that I have a solid mat board to rely upon to brace my art. I would not mind having ones that are thicker because of this, but for the price, I cannot complain.
Great for documents
Great look with documents. The black edge really brings out lettering.

great for documents
I frames some calligraphy, and the black edge really brought out the pen strokes in black ink. I could see using this for other documents with black writing against a white or lighter background, looked great.
Love the black core matboard!
from Aldie, Virginia
It's great to be able to get the boards shipped to my home. There are no retailers out here in Aldie, Virginia that carry black core matboard. Shipping was reasonable and the product arrived in perfect condition. Will definitely use Blick again!
