this is the good stuff.

Comments about Crescent Select Conservation Solids Matboard:
Getting ready to mat & frame a whole pile of works on paper. Something I have noticed about these boards: they are more forgiving than cheaper boards. Because the color is the same all the way through, imperfections in the cuts can be sanded and/ or burnished. In my opinion, this makes them a better buy, even if they cost a little more than regular mat board.Also, Blick's ships SUPER fast, which makes me happy!!!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I use white, off white, light grey for framing watercolors. I also use the 2 ply version for backing. It is museum grade quality so the ctu edges do not turn dark.

Best deal on Matboard
By Matt C
from Mechanicville, NY
I use the matboard as backing for mated pictures. It's good matboard. The site I was planning to buy from required I buy at least 10 of them. I bought 5 on blick and saved a lot of money. It's just matboard, but a better deal.
Professional Look, Awesome Price
By Roberto Liera
from Oxnard, CA
We wanted to use 8-ply boards for this project. Not only we got a great price, but the look obtained is amazing. The 8-ply provides such a nice framing that our photos could be hanging on a gallery! They are very sturdy and will not bend so you can use them on large pieces like our 20x30's. Given the amount og boards that you can cut and re-cut, we figured out that 4-ply vs 8-ply on small pieces would only make a difference in cost of about $2 per piece. Use them to give a professional look to you art. Remember, these are very hard to cut, so you need to have an 8-ply cutter (you can order from BLICK (item #17190-5000) otherwise you will bend and damage your regular cutting blades. Very glad to receive my boards in perfect condition on a double wall box, no dented corners and all 100% usable. Very happy!
Great quality, price and service
Great to get color thru mat without needing a mortgage!
from Syracuse NY
Blick does an great job of packaging the large sheets of matboard to get the product delivered in excellent condition. I've never had a problem with my orders.
Foolproof Packaging and Fast Shipping!
from duluth, mn
I know its just cardboard but if it isn't handled right it becomes useless. Blick shipping knows how to handle matt board correctly, it came to me quickly and in perfect condition.
Crescent 8 ply will set you apart
from Richmond VA
Few methods can really step up your framing like the use of 8 ply conservation board. The crisp deep bevel whispers quality. It takes a good sharp blade and considerable skill to master, but the effort is worth it. Crescent 8 ply from Blick's is affordable and well packaged to avoid damage. Highly recommended.
from Alexandria, VA
The mat board is excellent quality, but the most impressive thing about the order was the superb way the board was packaged. I was afraid the corners and edges would be damaged in transit causing waste. I needed the full sheet. The piece was so well wrapped there was no damage at all. I couldn't have gotten a piece home from a brick and mortar store in such great shape!
