Fabulous for letterpress
from Lynn, MA
A great material for letterpress printing - but I wish they didn't have a price tag on every board, even in bulk.
Shipment of poster board
By PRESCHOOL TEACHERS
from Woodbury Heighs, NJ
We use this product in a preschool. We cut capital letters out to help our 3-year-olds to identify alphabet letters and color an object that begins with that letter and paste them into the poster board cut-out. Your product works very well under these circumstances.We are also impressed with the careful way our order was packed to insure that the poster board arrived in perfect condition.

Pacon gold railroad board
By MT Art Teacher
from Deer Lodge, MT
I am the high school art teach, adviser for Student Council and National Honor Society. I use Pacon Railroad Board in my classroom as well as decorations for sports, school activities such as posters and sports posters. I have found that it is the BEST value and the BEST quality of all poster board I have used. The color is bright and true and the board is a heavy quality. I would recommend it without hesitation.
I purchase this product every year.

I use this product for matting work. It is easier for my middle school students to cut and has a nice finished look to it.

Small class, Private School

We fold the railroad board in half, tape the ends and use this as a portfolio for student work. We also make mats for work to be displayed at open house.
Happy to find this available
By Printer Ron
from Pawtucket, RI
I am a printer who could not get the Railroad Board from any of my paper suppliers. I was pleasantly surprised to find it available here. I received the product as listed on time and I was able to complete my project for my customer as promised. I will be sure to use Blick again.
Great for modelis
from San Jose, cA
I'm a metal sculptor and often construct models of my pieces before fabricating them in metal. Armed with scissors and a glue gun I can produce prototype ideas in no time with this railroad board. It the models get too large I sometimes have to double the railroad thickness in places to give added strength. I just love this product and have purchased well into the hundreds of sheets over the years and some models have been sitting around the studio for more the 20 years. Great product and at very market competitive price and in that regard I've yet to find it less expensive elsewhere but now I'm loyal to Blicks regardless.
