Welcome to dickblick
Soft-Kut Printing Blocks are approximately ¼" thick — enough to allow both sides to be cut, thus providing two printing surfaces per block. Cut any size block into smaller pieces with scissors, a knife, or a paper trimmer to use it for rubber stamping! Soft-Kut Printing Blocks are also latex free.
Soft-Kut Printing Blocks are meant for use with water-base block printing inks only. Solvents will ruin these blocks.

My go-to printing block!
from Gatlinburg, TN
Comments about Soft-Kut Printing Blocks:
This is my favorite printing block to buy. It comes in larger sizes than most at a great value. The blocks are thick enough to carve both sides and flexible enough to print on oddly shapes surfaces.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Will continue to buy
from Bellingham, WA
I have been dabbling in block printing for several months now, and I'm glad I've given Soft-Kut a try! It's quite a different carving experience compared to linoleum -- the very soft material allows for quick carving, and easy to cut apart with an Xacto knife as well for different size or shape stamps. I bought several blocks to start, but I'll definitely be purchasing more in the not too distant future.

I LOVE this linoleum!!! Super easy to carve, yet strong and holds up to heavy use. Thick enough that you can carve both sides. Easy to cut into shaped pieces. I print with acrylic paint or even acrylic screenprint inks work great too. I now only use this kind of linoleum in all of my workshops and for my own artwork, and recommend it to everyone.

I have used this product for years.
By art teacher

I use this product in my high school classes. It is easy for the students to design and carve their design. I have not tried any other similar products, so I cannot compare to other products. I just keep buying this carving block because it works so well.
These were a great deal but they print really weird and splotchy if you don't clean them off well before you ink the first time. There is a powder/film over the block that you have to get rid of. Students only had major problems if there were larger areas of the block left uncarved.
Merchant response: Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with these blocks. The powder you discovered is corn starch, used to prevent sticking, and we're sorry to hear that it interfered with your initial prints. If we can ever be of assistance with products you purchase from us, please know that our Product Information Team is here to help. Just call 1-800-933-2542 (8am-5:30pm CST M-F) or email firstname.lastname@example.org. We're always happy to assist you!
Just what I wanted

I ordered a bunch of these for a series I am working on and I love the way it is turning out. It is super easy to cut on these blocks and I never have to sharpen my tools.
I am having fun creating stamps with this product for use in paintings or even ATCsm.

Super easy to cut. Be careful. Small details are difficult because there is little resistance when carving.
Cuts very easily & not too fragile
By NoCo Erik
from Northern Colorado
Bought this for an art project for scout group. Cuts very easily. Not too fragile (which means we can use a finished block over and over). Cuts very smoothly and predictably without unexpected soft or hard spots.
easy for beginner students to use
from Oklahoma City, Oklahoma
We use the largest sheets of these.. easy to cut to size for students to use. THe material is soft enough that beginner students have no problems getting used to cutting tools. I will always look for these when ordering in the future.
