Questions & Answers

Can you tell me how tall the looped black piece is? The handle is long enough for shorter paint brushes (at least 9 inches) to fit?

Then, you should- As an added bonus, I posted a picture in case it is useful.

Are you able to remove the pencil holder or are you required to leave it in place?

There is no need to remove and reattach it. The pencil is held in place by a piece of plastic that passes through a hole in the pencil holder and gives the appearance of mushrooming. The plastic can be cut and the pencil holder can be removed, but there is no way to fix it back on.

Can you latch your board when it is It works with the other I bought, but mine does not. Wondering if its defective?

You should be able to latch this when closed after calling ArtBin Customer Service. Dial 800

How is the molding dimple on the drawing area? In the photos it in looks to be on both sides. In the reviews it looks like it's on both ?

Due to this, the product cannot be sketched as it affects both sides. A very disappointing experience. The design is not at all good.

There are dimples on the center of the two clipboard surfaces that make drawing impossible
3/5

It is a very informative and helpful product. I would recommend it for anyone interested in carrying pencils, charcoals, and sketch pads for drawing. It can hold two (. You will need 3 or 4 9x12 pads depending upon the number of sheets in each As such, if you want to draw on loose papers you will not be able to, even if you use backing sheets. * If you look closely at the picture showing the Sketch Board open (and empty), you'll see a raised dimple right in the middle of the In the photo of the outside of the Sketch Board you do not see a dimple, but mine does. Dimples on the inside of the surface are caused by it actually being recessed into the surface.

For any artist this is a must-have
5/5

Despite not having a studio, I can sketch and color on the Sketch Board whenever I want. The storage at the end makes it easy to bring everything I need with me to do this. A small water misting bottle, a 20 color palette, watercolor paper, brushes, pencils, erasers, and a small watercolor brush case are all within reach. The items I need are all here. Because it fits inside my backpack, I can have it with me at all times. My recommendation is to buy it ASAP and I wish I had done so sooner. In addition, I store several of my supplies in it, and I keep other items in there that I might need while I am out on a quick adventure! Additionally, it works great as a travel bag due to the way it supports and won't let anything inside be.

It looks nice in pictures but is useless in real life
3/5

Although I read the reviews before buying, I still purchased it. Hopefully only a few of the molds have a problem and maybe it is just a few. However, mine had a dimple on the outside work surface and the inside work surface as well. When I talked with Kristen at Artbin, she seemed to not care or think having a divot in the work surface should be an issue. Furthermore, she told me that the inside clip is not for holding paper while drawing, but for storing paper, so there was no problem there It is hard to believe that a company would produce a product like this. The pencil case would be nice, but it won't be able to be used as a drawing surface. Due to its plastic nature, it would also have held up to being painted. Unfortunately, they didn't put a non-toxic option on any of the labels Would you rather draw on a plastic sheet, anodized aluminum, or molded surfaces? I have received a refund from Amazon, so at least I can be happy. I bought a plastic cutting board for $10 from the store. This is a plastic surface that is very smooth and can be drawn on or water colored. This is great, I just put it in a backpack with my supplies, and I am This is a much better deal.

This case can be used while sketching in the field
4/5

This handy case can be used for sketching on the road or in the field with all the supplies it holds. on both sides for fast handling of a drawing pad so you can extend the length of the pen. Below is a picture to showcase that it will accommodate 10" of pens, pencils and brushes. A question was asked about the height of looped pencil/pen/brush holders, so I've included a picture to demonstrate this.

A little sketchy
5/5

I like the quality of these sketch boards, they have plenty of storage space so I don't have to worry about running out of supplies the only down side is the small circle in the middle of the sketching areas that prevents me from using 100% of the material. I just worked around this because I really didn't find it to be an issue.

The idea is good
3/5

The execution was terrible. My favorite part of this was the idea behind it. I fell in love with the contractor's version after my husband bought it for work. The pencil slots on this one made me think it would be a better fit for me. This is wrong! Despite the difference in quality, the product is still excellent. However, even with the sides closed all the way, the lid will not lock all the way. My pencil holder and pen holder don't close at all when I put a pencil or pen in them. The main issue is that it does not completely close, so any paperwork or other pages I store have to be careful not to fall out the ends. You should keep an eye on the giant divets on both sides of the clipboard if you plan to write or sketch. It may take you removing the giant label that blocks the divets and taking the product back to find them, if they deem the product unreturnable before you realize they are there. What a nice idea, huh? Should I be able to return, I would.

Amazing! I am in love with are totally in love with To keep in the car, we purchased two for the kids
5/5

A convenient stash box that holds 24 pens, pencils, colored pencils, thin markers, etc. It also has plenty of room inside to store This door is very simple to close and open. It couldn't have happened to a better person. This is a much better option than other options available on the market for travel drawings. There will be no disappointment for you.

I am disappointed
3/5

I still need to carry my supply case separately. Due to its bulk, this case has only a very limited amount of capacity. Since the black cloth pencil holders are so narrow, neither pencils nor drawing pens can fit into them. The erasers and burnishing stumps simply cannot fit in the pocket. I am able to use my slim ruler. A thin pad to go with it. If you want to use it for art journaling, pass it up, as it is too narrow. I am disappointed. I still have to carry a separate shoulder bag with pens, pencils, and.
