Welcome to dickblick
Here's a virtually weightless board made of a polystyrene foam core laminated on both sides with a white coated-paper stock. It makes a wonderful back-up for large framed work and a great mounting board for posters. Use it for tabletop displays and signs.
Foam board cuts easily with a mat knife or utility knife and can be scored and folded for three-dimensional work. Standard foam board is 3/16" (5 mm) thick. Other thicknesses are available in select sizes.
Note — Oversized packages do not qualify for free shipping offers. The large 40" × 60" (102 cm × 153 cm) package requires truck shipment.

Using foam core for backing purpose on a picture frame. A little disappointed in the packaging. The corners were smashed in, was still able to use product.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Pricing on Foam Core
from East Sandwich, MA (Cape Cod)
I have searched all possible routes and there is NO way I can get a better price on foam core than to buy it by the case from Dick Blick. Beats most competitor's even when they have 50% off!
This product is wonderful. I will buy again.

Elmer's Foamboard - used for Presentations
from Great Neck, NY
We use these boards for mounting artwork to show to clients
I keep this in staock always.
By Copy Center Karen
from la Crosse, WI
It easy to handle and it arrived on time to finish a unexpected project.
Terrible! Cut edges shred, regardless of blade used.
After using Bienfang foam board for 3 decades, which always cut with clean edges, I am frustrated to find the same Exacto knife tool creates a shredded, unsightly edge, even with a new blade, on the Elmer's foam board. Other tools achieve the same rough edges. It is an embarrassment as a backing for artwork for clients. I will never purchase Elmer's again, and am stymied by reviews that say it cuts with a clean edge. Perhaps others have a special magic wand instead of a blade.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Difference Between Good and Great
By BHS - Modelmaker
from Tucson, AZ
I build architectural models and use 1/8" foam core board for topography; typically 20-25 sheets per project. This product is absolutely flat, cuts clean, layers easily with Elmer's glue, and takes spray paint very well. I do a good deal of sanding to obtain just the right edges, and this product complies.
Excellent product, well packed and promtly deliverd
from Bass Harbor. Maine
great product all around
Great product for backing artwork for framing/matting for student artwork of art shows and exhibits. Cuts easily and the edges do not shred and fall apart like other brands. Light weight. Was shipped quickly and we had a catalog discount which made this a fantastic deal!
Just what I needed
from New Iberia, LA
Great to cut up and use for students!
