Welcome to dickblick
Printfoam is a soft, but dense foam material that easily takes an impression made by a pencil, stick, or other object. The surface is so sensitive that any shape can be pressed into it for printing textures.
It's great for teaching young children the principles of printmaking because there's no need for sharp tools. Use water-based inks and any kind of paper to produce dozens of sharp prints.
Each package contains ready-to-use sheets that are 1/16" thick.
This special value classroom assortment includes 100 sheets of 4" × 6", 60 sheets of 6" × 9", 96 sheets of 9" × 12", and 48 sheets of 12" × 18".

By D&D Library Gals

We love this product for it's ease of use and inexpensive cost. It worked excellent on the very first try - no learning curve. Great to use with students or the public, since the product is so easy to use and projects can be completed quickly - same day - same hour in some cases!

My 4th & 5th graders had great fun drawing their dream houses on Inovart foam sheets, then printing each one next to one another. It looked like a neighborhood everyone wanted to live in!
Easy to use and afordable
from Muskegon, MI
A great deal and easy to use. We use a pencil to create our design and then print on card stock with Blick printing inks using a wooden spoon to transfer the ink. Fantastic results.

This is a nice product. The foam is easy to use, I can do printing in all my classes and I don't have to worry whether someone will cut themselves, like I would with Linoleum.
Limited for some techniques
from Raleigh , NC
These are ok if you just want to draw with a stylus or pencil. But if you want to make intricate impressions the plates do not have enough thickness. The prices is good for large quantities.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
kid friendly art supply
from Park City Utah
So easy to use. Kids and adults get immediate satisfaction and want to do more. Ran out of my supply because it was so popular.
Fun, simple, direct
By DB the Librarian
from Tacoma, WA
I haven't used any other foam printing blocks, but these worked well. I used them with waterbased printing inks for a class of teens who had not done printmaking before. They are fun because the surface can take lots of different kinds of markmaking and you don't need special tools or sharp knives to make marks. We experimented with sticks, straws, pencils, etc. I also liked that the foam was easy to cut into different shapes. The foam is probably not firm enough to stand up to a press or lots of use, but for demonstrating the relief printing process quickly and for creating monotypes, this is a great product. Also fun and safe to use with children. Pretty affordable, too.
great material for classes and workshops
By Local Jane
Used these styrofoam plates for cut-outs, workshops and my own pieces. They print well and the image is reductive. Great for experiementing, too.
