Comments about Nielsen Bainbridge Cold Press Illustration Board:
This has been my go-to illustration board for many years. The quality has always been reasonably consistent, which is so important for professional work. However, I have not always been pleased in the way it was packaged and shipped to me. The boards are often packed in oversized boxes in which the boards slide around and the corners get bent. In addition, the boards are not wrap in any kind of material to protect them should the box be exposed to inclement weather during delivery. Which has happened and was almost a disaster since ruined boards would have made me miss an important deadline. Should this happen again I will be forced to find another supplier.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Excellent Cold Press Illustration Board
from Greenville, New Hampshire
The way it is shipment to me in a heavy duty box that I can use over again to store my art and ship to clients. Thank you so much. I wish there was a Blick in my area of New Hampshire. We don't even have an art store near me.

Not as nice as the old boards
from Juneau, Alaska
I have been using this cold press board with pen and ink and Winsor & Newton Designers Gouache to paint coats of arms. The board used to be thicker. I don't know when the thickness changed, because I was away from painting for many years. In the 1960-1970s it could be relied on not to warp or bend. (I still have a couple of the old boards.) Returning to painting a year ago, I found that the new boards warp - won't even stay flat on the drawing board with drafting tape. Now I'm worried about getting my work framed, hoping the warping won't affect the result. Some other boards, such as Cresent 100.3, are thicker but are creamy white, and I like the Bainbridge board because it is a bright white. So, for me, Bainbridge is still best in its category despite the warping.
A good solid product
I use watercolor on this board to get interesting textures. Ten years ago (or less) it was a heavier product. I preferred that, but this year's "model" still works better than similar products.
Love this illustration board
from Vancouver, BC
I have not been able to find a better price on comparable illustration boards. I cut the 15x20" sheets into smaller sizes for illustrating pages of comics and graphic novels. It takes mixed media well -- with a soft, textured top layer which leaves a textured-looking mark (if that is what you're looking for).My Dick Blick order was FedEx-ed to me in Canada (shipping was costly, but was offset by the great prices of the products) and delivered in a better than expected timely manner.

I work in Dry Media and I like the tecture of these brds.
from Bussey Iowa
Living in a rural area in Iowa, I could not find a retail store that had the Illustration board I wanted for my artwork. Shopping online, i found the Nielson Bainbridge Cold Press Illustration board that I have come to rely on for top quality results for the past 30 years. They were delivered a couple days after ordering them and the cost was actually cheaper than it would have been if I had to drive an hour to the nearest city with an art supply store.
