These plates are made of a vinyl material that is 1/16" thick (approximately 1.5 mm). Each plate is soft and flexible with a smooth tan surface on one side and self-adhering adhesive on the back.
Cut the plate and mount it on a base, such as cardboard. Shapes can be cut with school scissors. Carve fine lines with linoleum cutters. Ink with either oil-based or water-based inks, and print using a press, baren, brayer, or rubbing tool.

Not linoleum but great for what I use it for.

Comments about Speedball Flexible Printing Plates:
This is great to use for monoprinting and pressure printing on a proof press. I mount it on a base and it gives me a smooth inking flat surface. You can also cut it into shapes with scissors and use it to make simple geometric relief prints. For what I use it for it is perfect and easy to use. I would not use it as a substitute for linoleum blocks, and I would never carve into it.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Poor quality, difficult to cut.
By Jim the Runner
This product is unusable with a traditional linoleum cutter. The tackiness of the adhesive is poor and does not hold the flexible printing plate securely. The description implies an easy to use beginner level printing material that can be carved, but that it not the case and even raises safety concerns when cutting.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

This product is sooooo bad. It cannot be carved into. I tried to buy this for high school students to use in a beginning printmaking class. They could not cut into it with out ripping the plate. It is not that good when cut with scissors. False advertising. Don't buy this. This deserves a negative star of shame.
