Welcome to dickblick
Crescent Art Boards feature a variety of enhancements that make them the ideal substrate for mixed media, markers, collage, or painting.
Crescent Art Boards feature a smoother surface than lesser-quality boards, for improved pen and marker performance. A whiter core eliminates distortion of the surface papers, so that the board surfaces are brighter and whiter, with less show-through and blotches. The backing papers are professional quality, unlike lesser brands.
Rigid enough for quick, gestural paint sketches, yet economical enough to use in the classroom for warm-ups and compositional planning, Crescent Canvas Boards feature a toothy surface that holds paint well. Their solid cream core provides a consistent surface. The medium weight boards provide a sturdy, durable substrate, and the heavyweight boards are triple-thick to provide extra strength for rigorous painting techniques.
Ideal for found, recycled or repurposed objects, as well as markers, inks, acrylics and paper layering, Crescent Collage Boards are the ideal surface for collage. The medium-weight, hot press art boards feature a smoother, whiter core for an extra-smooth surface.
Dry Mixed Media Boards
Ideal for colored pencils, pastels, charcoal, and graphite, these medium-weight art boards are sturdier and more durable than paper. Their tough, cold press surface features a soft, gritty tooth that holds dry pigments and stands up to applications of multiple mediums and layers. A smoother, whiter core lends a consistent surface, and buffering to an alkaline pH slows the aging process.
Ideal for spray paint and oil-based, alcohol-based, or pigmented markers, these strong, triple-thick marker boards stand up to rigorous layering techniques. Buffered to an alkaline pH to slow the aging process, they feature a tough, hot press surface with an ultra smooth finish for silky smooth marker applications.

I should say I use it to paint on, so may not be relevant for people using it for markers. I had a sample of it that worked beautifully with Gouache paint, somehow the non-sample version I bought feels a little different. But still, it's a nice surface, and makes a nice presentation if you want to sell your work or have a project that needs to impress.
Sturdy enough for collage!
