Welcome to dickblick
Crescent Select Matboards are made from alpha-cellulose wood pulp fibers that have been chemically treated to eliminate the acids and lignins that normally degrade artwork and matboards.
Intended for minimum levels of conservation framing and as an alternative to non-conservation matting, Crescent Select Alpha-Cellulose Matboards are ideal for fine art prints, photos, documents, and limited editions. The 4-ply matboards are acid-free and lignin-free, with fade-resistant, bleed-resistant surface papers, with bright white cores and backing.
These matboards are identical to Crescent Select Matboards, with deep black cores and backing.
Color Chart Note — Use this color chart as an approximation of the real color. If exact color matching is necessary, use actual samples of the materials.
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.

Great item for displaying art.
from Colorado Springs
This mat board is the best for using with watercolors. Because it is acid free, it will not harm the art. And it sets off the art in a really good way.

Great matboard, great shipping, save alot and do your own matting
I ordered large sheets for a photography matting project at college. They came very well-packed and protected. No damage in shipping. I've never ordered a similar product, but they are sturdy and of good quality. I've had no trouble with cutting them.
Shipment came through fine, matboards are great!
from Tekwsbury, MA
I matted up my watercolors and my husband matted his photos. They looks great. One thing I like about Dick Blick is the way they pack the matboards. They are well protected from getting the corners bent. Thank - you packers. Part of this shipment was a replacement for some boards that came through dirty and they wouldn't clean up. Thanks for sending replacement quickly.
I matted a photo. The colors were very nice and they enhanced the photo really well. I had hoped they would be a little heavier in weight but my project worked out well regardless.
Mistake in color choice
from Georgetown, Texas
I like the mat boards, however the color of Irish green is a bit too bright. I will cut them for the inner mat of double matted paintings. The color is too garish otherwise.
Good product, great service
from Seattle, WA
High quality mat board in good neutrals for framing. As always the packaging was excellent and boards arrived in perfect condition. Also, when I found that there was a better promotion (sale code) effective the day after I ordered, I contacted Blick and they credited my account with the difference in price. Great customer service all around.
Great online resource
from Boston, MA
I had trouble getting the quantity I needed from one of the stores, so I decided to buy online, although I was concerned about shipping damage. The product was very well packed, and was received without any damage. Of 25 pieces, one had a slight imperfection that was a non-issue as I was able to remove the defect (a small piece of foreign material stuck to the surface).
Well packaged and as expected
from Bozeman, MT
The mat board came well packaged and without any dinged corners or sides allowing for four 16x20 boards from each piece.
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.
When matting your treasured art pieces, protecting them is just as important as selecting the right color of matboard to enhance their beauty. Connie explains what causes damage to artworks on paper and which matboards can safeguard your art against these elements.
