Welcome to dickblick
MOO Carve boasts a revolutionary PVC surface that’s softer and safer to use than linoleum — and also latex-free!
Use MOO Carve Carving Blocks for stamp carving, printmaking, and any other applications where you'd normally use linoleum. They're a neutral light gray color that's easy to work with, and the thickness allows for deep-carve cutting on either one or both sides of the block.
MOO Carve readily accepts transfer designs, or you can simply draw directly on the surface. It can be cut into smaller pieces without crumbling or breaking apart.

The best rubber print block material
Comments about MOO Carve Professional Carving Blocks:
I am new to these rubber printing blocks and have tried many. Moo blocks are the easiest to cut while, at the same time, the ones that allow for better precision than the rest. If you're new to printing with them you might invest in some of the less expensive printing blocks just to allow yourself to explore and play, then move to these as they are pricey but worth it.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Very easy to use
from Hyattsville, Maryland
This carves smoothly and does not crumble.
Great Customer Service
By The Wood 'n' Potter
from Lewisville, NC
I saw a pottery technique in one of my magazines and it referenced Dick Blick as the source for the material I needed. After looking on line, I was still unsure if the item I needed was the right one. The customer service rep was completely familiar with the product and helped me pick the exact item I needed.

This stuff is fragile and crumbles. Not able to get the detail I want. I've got 30 year old Mars Stadler erasers that I carved and they are still better than this stuff. I won't use it again.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Extremely easy to carve
from Waltham, mass
I would give five stars for the ease of carving. Unfortunately creases are present on blocks when you take the packaging off and these lines are visible when you stamp. I've tried sanding out the lines before carving my designs but it doesn't help. I hope the manufacturer can resolve this issue, maybe packaging with another material that doesn't press wrinkles into stamp.I thought I finally found the perfect block to carve but I am left disappointed
By Lauren G
These are by far the best blocks I have used. They cut so easily, hold details, and are thick enough to carve on both sides.
from Washington, DC
I've tried Soft Kut, Speedball blocks and the Utrecht house brand (terribly crumbly, don't waste your $). THIS IS THE BEST. A little more expensive, but it carves like butter and is solid enough that you won't have to mount your stamps. You can even carve both sides, because the blocks are firm and thick. The Blick Soft Kut is comparable in terms of ease of carving, but if I'm giving stamps as gifts, I always use Moo.

Replaces Staedtler Master Carve?
By Little Liza Jane
When Staedtler ceased distributing its MasterCarve blocks, this became my fall-back. It's OK -- I do think it has a tendency to crumble, and the consistency of the material isn't as supple as MasterCarve. But it's the best I can find.
The best out there
from st louis
I've worked with other products, but this is heads above all others. Clean crisp lines, no crumbling, easy to work with.
