This product is wonderful if you want a good heavy-duty chipboard. But be prepared to spend a little time cutting unless you have a guillotine cutter. I don't have one, so it took several repeats on both the old Fiskars rotary cutter and the Carl cutter, both with new blades.
Once you get it cut, it will stand up to whatever you want to do with it! Good value for the price.
Chipboard isn't usually acid-free because it's generally made from recycled paper. But, not this brand. For those of you who don't like acidic elements on your layouts this is the product for you. It's perfect for you in fact, for your letters, shapes and mini album covers. Be sure to check out the other colors and sizes available from Grafix (type "Grafix Chipboard into a Find It Fast search to see them all).

I'm so glad to find 12 x 12 chipboard for use in my Cricut Expressions. It is sturdy for the weight/thickness and relatively smooth for being craft chipboard. I'll be happy to reorder when my supply is used up.
There are lots of chipboard "lots" on some auction sites...but I didn't want a lifetime supply...just a few pieces, so this package size was perfect. The only thing I didn't like was how difficult it was to use. Maybe it's just a TAD too thick? I used a paper trimmer to sort of mark where I needed some straight cuts to be...then I used an exacto knife to actually cut through it. I have used it with some sizzix dies (letters), and some letters took multiple turns. I haven't used this since I bought some tools that will help with rough edges/etc...so maybe I will amend my review later...
This is very sturdy, thick chipboard. It's difficult to cut with an exacto knife and my cricut (with the deep cut blade) can only score this chipboard. Not quite what I was looking for.
