How does it differ from nubord?

The answer is below and is an extract from the first post of this thread where I described the most popular options.

Mike Farley wrote:The Nubord sheets are extremely tough and can be difficult to cut, so last year some people tried pulp board, which is a thinner material. It will not stiffen the mount to anything like the same degree as Nubord, but will still provide some protection to the back of the print. It is slightly more expensive than last year at £1-92 (£1-60 + VAT) per sheet.

Can anyone who has used the pulp board give any feedback about how useful they found it for backing prints?

A few requests so far, but not as many as I was expecting based on my enquiry about interest at a club meeting in May.

As a reminder, I have to receive orders by Wednesday, 29 August from those who wish to participate. The idea is to allow members to purchase the mountboard materials they need for the forthcoming season at well below retail prices. I only undertake this initiative once a year if I believe that there is sufficient demand to justify the time and effort involved.
