    Yes, and you can get it at any store that does framing, e.g. Aaron Brothers, Michaels.
    There may be some odd specialty varieties that have a vinyl top layer to get a non-paper (e.g. metallics) look, but I've never encountered that in normal photo mat board.
    Yoga class makes me feel like a total stud, mostly because I'm about as flexible as a 2x4.
    "Design"? Possibly. "Intelligent"? Sure doesn't look like it from this angle.

    You can never be too rich, too thin, or have too much ammo.

    Use posterboard! Walmart sells a black posterboard with a white core. They may have other colors with a different core, but I keep black on hand to test a design before etching on black granite or black anodized aluminum.

    I make my cards out of matting also. Any framing shop has tons of “middles” for pennies. High speed , low power, two passes, zero smoke.

    I use scrapbooking double sided card stock to make business cards. It's available from Michael's or directly from DCWV. Here are a couple links to dcwv. https://www.dcwv.com/product/12-ds-cardstock-stack/

    For business cards try clear cast acrylic. It has the highest wow factor of any business card I have ever made from any other material. People never throw acrylic cards away.
