Ultra-Black mounting boards are solid black throughout, and both sides are useable. They cut cleanly and are excellent for mounting transparencies, storyboards, and other art and photographic presentations. Single thick is 1/16 in., and double thick is 1/8 in.

Available in two surface options:

  • Ultra-Black 8 is smooth on one side, textured on the other side. The textured side accepts pastels, chalk, and acrylic paint. The smooth side works well for presentations and painting.
  • Ultra-Black Smooth is smooth on both sides. It’s the ultimate mounting and presentation board for artwork, photos, computer printouts, layouts, and more. The intense black surface provides more dramatic presentations.

Product Questions and Answers

Is this more of a wooden board or a very thick construction paper sheet?

- Asked by Tyler .I on 18-Oct-13

It called an illustration board but it is not wood, it is similar to poster board, 1/8 in. thick cardboard for mounting artwork for presentation.

- Answered by MisterArt on 18-Oct-13

Can I use pastels / chalk / acrylic paint on these directly?

- Asked by Latha on 08-Jul-13

Yes, it is called a mounting board, but the textured side may be used as an illustration board.

Rated by: Rachael S. in New York, NY
I shopped around and this board is the best out there for the value. It comes in multiple sizes and is perfect for mounting comps.
Rated by: Nicole A. in Providence, RI
This is the best mounting board at the best price! I work at an ad agency and we use this all the time for client presentations.
Rated by: Marlene M. in Miami, FL
This is my favorite for showing photos because it is the blackest black and doesn't reflect light, also I can cut it with an exacto blade.
Rated by: Brenda S. in Ft. Lauderdale, FL
Great product. Clean cuts and great packaging to prevent any discolorations. Works perfect for my class projects.
Rated by: Gerald D. in North Fort Myers, FL
The 11x14 format is the perfect size for the minimum number of cuts for mounting my digital photographic work. And it IS all black, the trims are clean and neat. I have also been using the CRESCENT All Black Mounting Board as a backdrop for my macro and still life images. The board’s reflectance and luminosity is perfect – flat, matte if that is what you need, interestingly brown-to-blue if that is what you want.
