Comments about MCS Glass and Backing:
Packaged well in styrofoam avoiding breakage in shipping but also in storing. The glass edges are smooth and rounded, avoiding cuts when working with it. The backing is corrugated cardboard, not my preference, but serves my purposes most of the time.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Decent glass at a decent price
By Hill Country artist
from Wimberley, TX
Good product for my framing needs. Blick is also very good with their shipping and handling. Fragile products like frames and glass could easily be damaged and so far my experience has been very satisfactory.
I will continue to buy this product
from Bakersfield ca
I use the glass with metal frames to frame my photography so I can change photos out easily.
I use this glass in rustic frames that I build myself. I researched purchasing it locally before checking online. Found Blick's prices very competitive and allowed me to do "one-stop" shopping by purchasing other framing supplies. Initially, I was concerned with something so fragile being shipped. However, Blick goes over and above in their packaging of these items. Very well protected and arrived in perfect condition.

Best glass I've ever used
from Tallahassee, FL
I have used many different kinds of glass to face my watercolors, and this is by far my favorite. It is packed superbly in Styrofoam, so it never comes broken; and my favorite thing about it is that it has ground down edges that keep it from slicing my fingers and leaving shards all over my room. The surface of the glass is smooth and clean. Overall an excellent value. p.s. For fine art preservation purposes I do not recommend using the provided backing for mounting original artwork. I use acid-free foamboard for this purpose. However, a piece of cardboard is always useful somewhere in the studio.
The glass arrived safely packaged and clean (Ready for installation). Its all you could ask for at this price. I would purchase this product for all of my frames needing glass.
Glass and backing
By Syl the painter
from Worcester. Vermont
The glass arrived in perfect condition because it was so well packed and it fit the frame correctly. I waas a bit doubtful about ordering glass for fear of breakage but these pieces came through perfectly. Thanks so much.

Perfect for my needs
Love the fact i can now have real glass for my paintings in the size i use most.Having glass to protect your paintings adds a real sense of professionalism to your work as well as enhancing the painting. I ordered one sheet from Blick, was worried about it being shipped, Blick had packaged it so well that it could have been dragged behind the delivery trucks and still been in good shape. Love the effort they put in to make sure my orders arrive safely.Customer also loved the painting with the glass insert. Will order extras in the future to have them on hand, for the price , i cant beat it either.
