Decorative Mattboard a Winner
from West Palm Beach, FL
Now that I'm retired I am going through 50 years of family photos, some inherited from my parents. I purchased a matt cutter from Blick and with the matt boards and backing sheets am in the process of mounting and framing them for my front hall and family room. I was surprised and delighted at how easy it was to order and receive the materials from Blick. Their email messages kept me up to date on delivery and the entire buyer experience was first rate. Hat's off to a great company.
Note the "finish" is textured

Comments about Crescent Decorative Matboard, Whites and Off-Whites:
A good standard mat. Note that the finished texture is more rough than one can see on line. It has almost a burlap (but smooth) look to it. While not what I expected, it is still a good deal and I am using the mats.
Arrived in excellent condition - Ahead of time!!!
from fredericksburg, tx
I was surprised and pleased that the matt board showed up in excellent condition and ahead of schedule, I ordered it and got free shipping and it arrived in a day and 1/2, to a rural texas location.
Great mat boards

It's real nice to count on professionals for service quality and promptness
Been Using it for years
from Clio MI
Been using this for years for matting my wife's art prints and can't imagine changing. Always in stock, always fine quality and Dick Blick packages it inside another box so that it is well protected. FedEx has managed to dent it a few times, but I'm still very happy and have only lost a few corners of the board. Highly recommended.
Comments about Crescent Decorative Matboard, Yellows and Oranges:
I purchased the matboards to be able to cut my own mats for my watercolors and they were great. The size enabled me to cut several from just one board, 2 at 18x24 and some from the remaining scraps and center cutouts. The only drawback was that all my boards, although well packaged, were bent on one end at the corner as were the foam core sheets. It was odd too because the outside of the packaging was fully intact. It was disappointing but since it was only on one corner, I could work around it and it was not a problem for me. I think it was the inner flap of the heavy box that somehow did the damage. Just odd but it managed to get them all.

Choose your colors carefully.
By Serious artist
from Albuquerque, NM
This review is about the pink color # 303 (specifically,) and most other colors offered by Crescent in their least expensive line of 32 x 40 mat board. Getting right to the point, this color is just an awful, screaming pink. And while I love the price offered by Dick Blick, all the colors are really awful. Nothing subtle, nothing related to current color themes. I don't know where else to buy mat board at this amazingly low price, but think I just won't purchase this product again until Crescent updates their colors offered in this line.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Crescent matboard comes in hundreds of colors, but, besides color, how do you choose which board best fits your needs? Connie presents Crescent's Decorative line, Select line and RagMat line and explains the benefits of each to help you make the right decision for your artwork.
