The color palette ranges from a vibrant, clean Vivid White to the natural warmth of Cream to the richness of Deep Black. Crescent Select Conservation Solids are acid-free, lignin-free, and made from 100% alpha-cellulose fibers.
Made in the USA.
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.

High Quality Product
By Art the Amateur
from Boston, MA
Using it as mat board for framing photos. High quality and reasonable price. It is thick, so make sure you mat cutter has enough depth to go through the board.
great product and prompt delivery

Beautiful white mat board but damaged corners when arrived
By Georgiafrom NewYork
from HBudson, NY
The white of this mat board is very nice and the quality is very good. Unfortunately the sheets came with damaged corners but I did not have the time to return them as my framing job was due. Since the damaged corners were a Dick Blick issue I didn't want to give a lower rating. Beware though that you need to order this item in time if you need the full size sheet.
Merchant response: We're sorry to hear that the boards you received were damaged in shipping, and we want to work with you to make this right. One of our Customer Care Agents will be following up via email to see how we can help.
from Warren, NJ
I bought 3 mat boards: antique white, white, and vivid white. The problem with not having corners on hand means you have to guess as to what might suit the art and frame you're working on. The mat boards arrived very quickly and in perfect condition! This is a first for me since normally a corner might be dinged or bent. I was so happy with quality! It was difficult to see which side of the mat board was up though. I suggest looking under good lighting.

This Matboard arrived flat and unharmed, and performed as expected from a Matboard.
Thrilled with purchase
from Falmouth MA
The 8 ply was just what I wanted. I was worried about shipping. It arrived in perfect shape and almost overnight. Thank you for the extra care in shipping.
this is the good stuff.

Getting ready to mat & frame a whole pile of works on paper. Something I have noticed about these boards: they are more forgiving than cheaper boards. Because the color is the same all the way through, imperfections in the cuts can be sanded and/ or burnished. In my opinion, this makes them a better buy, even if they cost a little more than regular mat board.Also, Blick's ships SUPER fast, which makes me happy!!!

I use white, off white, light grey for framing watercolors. I also use the 2 ply version for backing. It is museum grade quality so the ctu edges do not turn dark.
