Welcome to dickblick
Rising boards were created by Rising Paper more than 50 years ago to supply museums’ demands for a true conservation and preservation framing board. Over the years, in conjunction with Legion Paper, Rising Paper expanded the range into a family of museum boards known for their exceptional and unmatched quality. Today, under the stewardship of Legion Paper, Rising is the first choice of framers, museums, and conservators for the mounting, matting, and preservation of fine prints and precious documents. In fact, Rising exceeds the standards set by the Library of Congress.
Machine-made of 100% cotton, Rising Museum Boards are acid-free, neutral pH, and buffered with calcium carbonate for added protection, with a color that is solid throughout and will not fade, scuff, or bleed. Rigid quality control ensures consistency across the range, producing a board free of specks, dirt, or blemishes.
The preservation characteristics of Rising make it the ideal matting and mounting solution for fine art. Its superior cutting quality makes for an ultra-sharp and clean bevel to enhance the framed art.
The range consists of a focused color palette to complement all works of art, sized for French matting. Many artists find them ideal for various fine art techniques that include drawing, charcoal, pastel, silkscreen, and letterpress.
Color Chart Note — Use this color chart as an approximation of the real color. If exact color matching is necessary, use actual samples of the materials.
Handling Charge — When ordering sheets of paper or board larger than 18” x 24” in quantities of less than 10, a $3.00 per order handling fee applies. Paper or boards may be assorted to reach the quantity of 10.

This is my first experience with this product but it is a beautiful surface for colored pencil drawing. It is easy to cut as well.
Blick delivers on Museum Board
from Coupeville, WA
I always use Rising Museum Board for mounting and matting artwork. However, living on an island means a miserable drive to Seattle. Blick did a great job of packing and shipping my order from halfway across the country to me. The price was not lowball, but still was less than the total cost had I done the 200 mile trip to the big city.

Would buy again to use more of it!
from San Jose, CA
It was easy to be cut up with a knife, and stains were easily erasable when it got on the paper. It came in a secure packaging that can't get any better. However it was hard to hold and was prone to wrinkles, but that's just what happens when a you carry around a 3x4 feet sheet of paper everywhere all the time.
Great product great price. Feel it's as good as other more costly matboard
Great merchandise Great price
I had shopped around and was quoted TWICE the price for this. I was skeptical about the condition this would arrive in, however, I was way off base! I could not have gotten something of this size home by myself without some minor damage. This was just perfect. I will be a repeat customer.
High quality product
from Columbus, Ohio
I recently purchased a small order of Rising Museum board to try it out. I ordered 4 ply and 2 ply. For the price, it's a fantastic alternative to other products. It cuts extremely well and has a beautiful surface for matting. My only criticism is that the 4 ply boards I ordered were a tad bit long (32 ¼") so I had to force the board into my Logan 350-1 Compact Elite. If I had a larger mat cutter it wouldn't be a problem and I would probably appreciate having the additional length. I'm very happy and despite the length issue I will be reordering!

One Caution to Share
By mark the artist
from Charlottesville, VA
This is an excellent support for painting with gouache, watercolor or acrylic. one caution, if you choose to work on black and you are ordering other light colors, request that the black be separated from the lighter ones, or the black pigment will rub off and damage the other pieces in the shipment
