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.

I would buy this product again
By Nicole Gaitan

Soft, cuts clean lines, very easy to use. I can't find anything negative to say about this product.
Easy to cut and makes good, clean prints.
from Baltimore, MD
I'm using these printing plates to make a series of prints. They are easy to carve and so far my prints have been crisp.
great to carve
from Olympia, WA
I enjoy carving rubber stamps. I've tried several different brands of "rubber" for carving, including other types sold by Blick, but these Soft-Kut printing blocks are the best. They have just the right texture for carving, even for creating fine details. The blocks are easily cut to size if desired, and are thick enough to carve on both sides. They cut like butter with all of my carving tools. They are also reasonably priced, so I can always have a stack of them ready for carving when inspiration strikes! Highly recommended.
Good value for the money
I bought this as a more affordable alternative to some of the other soft, easy cut blocks... it works well. It is not quite as good with detailed cuts than some of the more expensive brands, but I use it mostly for my beginner class and it works well for that. I will be buying more!
easy to use
I'm an instructor for adults with disabilities. This is a product that is easy for then to use.
Third time I've bought these soft kut printing blocks
By art teacher Sheila
from Gig Harbor, WA
This is the third year I've used these soft kut printing blocks in my classroom. They are easy to cut and print beautifully. They can be cut on both sides which is a nice bonus! I also like that they come in big sheets and I can cut them down to the size I want.
Great for beginners
By SAC Curator of Education
from Salina, KS
I got these for our middle school students to create reduction prints. (4x6 size) They are really easy to carve and are great for hand-printing. One thing about them - I noticed that sometimes they are cut at an angle, so both sides are not exactly the same size. But they are great for beginning printmakers! They hold the line well when hand printing (haven't tried them in a press), and like I said, really easy for beginners to carve.
Soft-Kut works for me
By coastal TX printmaker
I liked being able to cut into the Soft-Kut block in unlimited shapes or line types. (After years of doing woodblock cutting and dealing with wood grain, variation in wood density, etc. this was far faster and easier.) Tip: you still need to keep your tools sharp, because Soft-Kut is soft enough to tear. With sharp tools I got the crisp edges and detail that I wanted. I will definitely use them for future printmaking.
