Welcome to dickblick
For all of its usefulness, acetate does cause a few headaches — ink that won't stay, a yellow or grayish cast to old acetate, edges that curl. The alternatives are expensive and sometimes just don't suit the purpose.
Dura-Lar is the acetate alternative. It combines the best features of Mylar® and acetate, and offers a variety of products so that you can purchase the film that suits your needs precisely. It is always consistent in color and overall clarity, and won't discolor with age. Dura-Lar is archival quality, safe for overlaying artwork, and it lays flat. It will remain dimensionally stable for as long as you need.
Both sides have a matte surface which accepts ink without feathering, as well as pencils and otherdrawing media. The surface is erasable. Its thickness is .005" (.127 mm), medium weight.
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.

Worked great for Glinda the Good Witch crown

Comments about Grafix Dura-Lar Matte:
When I looked online I didn't know which product would work best for my granddaughter's Glinda the Good Witch crown for Halloween. I called customer service and the rep was very helpful and suggested this product over one I was looking at. I really appreciated his great attitude and help choosing a better fit for my project. Worked out great!!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

grafix dura-lar matte
By Suzz Q
from New Jersey
This product performed fantastically on my first try. Durability and transparency are perfect.
I bought this product for a workshop with Linda Kemp as she prefers this brand. It was perfect. Others had some less expensive products and were not happy with the results. We were making backgrounds for negative painting of landscapes.
Thick, strong and translucent
from ithaca, new york
Seethrough enough, yet tough, this product makes perfect stencils or patterns for artwork or home decoration.
Great film for transfering drawings
Very happy with product and service.
from Kailua kona , Hawaii
Making stencils for printmaking projects , pochoir technique ,the product lasts , reuseable and is easy to form. Just great
This is fun paper to work with. Did a graphite drawing with colored board underneath. Gave the portrait a nice warm tone. Paper is very durable, easy to erase and has a nice soft look. Excellent product.

I love drawing and painting on this product and best of all I can cut great stencils with it. Super stuff!
I've experimented with many acetate products.
By Nancy-fine artist
I use oil based colored pencil on a piece of tempered glass on an electric heating pad. I can draw on both sides and I often use watercolor on the back and colored pencil on the front side. I prefer the double sided matte as it cuts down on my drawing time by 50%. I never curls or warps like other products I've tried and my students really do will with product.
