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.
Foamboard cuts easily with a mat knife or utility knife and can be scored and folded for three-dimensional work. Standard foamboard 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.

Terrible! Cut edges shred, regardless of blade used.
Comments about Elmer's Foamboard:
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.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
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

Great to cut up and use for students!
Love this stuff! So multi-functional for us!
from Hutchinson, Kansas
We use this product for making signs, creating models, and all manner of arts and exhibits projects. It is lightweight and large.
Nice and thin!
from Groton, MA
So many times I've not been able to fit the fatter foam-core, which we had on hand, into the rabbet of a frame. This will make that task so much easier.
Our "Go-To" Foamboard
from Winona, MN
The foamboard is great - sometimes the corners arrive dented (inside the carton). Still usable for our general needs.
I would buy this product again!
