Exactly what I needed!
from New York
I had a frame that was missing the glass and this product was perfect. Best price I found anywhere online too.
Brand has gone bad
from Tallahassee, FL
I wrote another review above, giving this glass 3 stars because it suddenly started coming with scratches although this has been my favorite glass for years. Well, I thought I would try the glass again, thinking the previous scratches were simply isolated defects. Here came the new piece of glass. It too was scratched, plus there was a cloudy mark running the length of it, seemingly caused by a roller wheel at the factory. Very disappointing. Quite obviously this brand's once quality standards are slipping. I will have to source my glass elsewhere now.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Great glass until recently
I would have given this glass 5 big stars until recently. The last two orders I made came with the glass scratched behind the packaging. This could not have occurred through shipping or handling as the packaging was unmarred. Two orders in a row! I frame my custom watercolor horse/dog portraits with this glass in wooden frames. I maintain excellent quality in my work, and cannot accept the slightest scratch on the glass I use. This glass has always come perfect. Clean, with a ground edge. I have always loved it. I have ordered another piece, but if there is another scratch, I will have to switch to another glass supply.
Quick and easy transaction. Arrived in a box and packaged with care!
I buy this product and get it at my door....

The glass pane is tooled around the edge as they advertise so not to get inadvertent cuts. Just a step saver from driving to the store to get the glass cut, the price is relative because Blick usually has some saving mark down so to me its worth the dollar or cents difference, the backing board is a plus.
The glass was packed well. It arrived as expected. Looks great!
Wonderful product, would buy again!

I was hesitant to buy glass over plexi for a 16"x20" frame I was assembling myself, but Blick did a amazing job with the packaging. The glass is clear and the edges are nice and smooth. The glass fit perfectly into the frame (the brand I bought is Nielsen, also available through Blick) with no issues. If I need to frame anything else in the future, I will definitely consider purchasing this brand again.
Best place to buy glass & backing
