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".

Easy intro to printmaking
from Portage, Michigan
Comments about Inovart Printfoam for Block Printing:
These are a great way to introduce young or inexperienced artists to printmaking. The blocks are easy to cut to custom sizes. The pluses: very easy for just about any skill level, great for younger kids or those with physical or developmental challenges because you don't have to use sharp tools. The downsides: blocks absorb a lot of ink on the first few passes with the brayer, they do compress quickly and the print degrades (I'd recommend hand pressing with a baren to extend the usefulness of the plate). Obviously this is not a competitive product for high quality block prints; adjust your expectations and you won't be disappointed at the lower quality plate and prints. Overall a great value and a fast, easy introduction to printmaking.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Excellent for intro students who have no idea what printmaking is. Fast, easy to print...cant find anything that can beat the value on this. Have bought many packs over the years.
Wish it were available in store!
from Davis and Woodland California
Using product for special needs population. It is easy and doesn't require many other supplies which makes it great for the students. Thought it should be available in your Blick (Sacramento) store since store has other printing products. Also, I save on shipping if I can purchase on demand!
Will buy it again!

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!
