Gatorfoam is a lightweight, rigid display board with a polystyrene core and white surface. The core is very dense and firm and the surface is a wood fiber veneer laminate impregnated with resin for water resistance.
Gatorfoam cuts cleanly with a knife, saw, or router. Choose Gatorfoam for your most durable displays, signage, and mounting surface.
Sheets measure 32" × 40" (81 cm × 102 cm).
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.

Excellent Art Supplies

Packed very well for shipping. Good quality product.
By randy (art teacher)
from north central Pa
Bought it for a large watercolor I was commissioned to complete.... Watched some videos on other folks working on similar sized paper and saw that many used this product as a backer to their work and also it was used in stretching the paper or flattening it after the work was finished.... It proved to be much lighter weight than expected but very sturdy. I leaned on it a few times and was fearful I had dented it. It survived the whole project without any dents and will be used, hopefully, for years to come. Corners got a bit rounded but that will not affect my work.

Just what I needed for an up coming class - light weight for transport to and from class but with the support needed to paint.
Better than foamcore
I use the gatorfoam board to staple my stretched water color paper on. Solid lightweight work surface for watercolor painting at home or forclass room setting.
I will continue to buy this product

I use the Gatorboard to build model rooms. It is as sturdy as wood, but much lighter. It cuts easily on my miniature table saw.

Awesome Painting Board
By Lady Jill
from Washoe Valley, Nevada
I ordered 3 boards that a full sheet of watercolor paper fit on, using bull dog clips. They are light weight, sturdy and I don't know why I waited so long to order these! Love them!.
A wonderful product. I now have two sizes.
from Central NY
While painting, I constantly go out to the kitchen table to take a break, and I like to bring the painting with me, to critique it from across the room and check on my progress. If it's a large painting, carrying it mounted on a wooden board can be way too heavy, not very portable. With the gatorboard, I snatch it up and take it to the kitchen with ease. It remains flat while painting, unlike foam-core backing boards, which can get a belly in them, or even a crease. I like to use the white finish, as it resembles a mat around the painting. The 23" by 31" will accept a full sheet of watercolor paper. I also have a 16" x 23", for smaller works.
