Comments about Alvin Heritage Deluxe Easel:
Dick Blick definitely knows how to pack a box for the contents safe arrival at their destination!The easel is much nicer than we thought it would be. The quality is better than expected, and the fact it comes with its own carrying bag was a bonus. My daughter loves it and can't believe what a good deal we got.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Sturdy Portable Easels for Facilitator Tool Kit
By Ellen the Facilitator
from Sacramento, CA
I bought two of these to support large foam core boards I use at meetings as a graphic facilitator. The ledges are more supportive than other easels I've used in the past. With their fixed height positions it is easy to get the two easels at exactly the same height. I like how lightweight they are and how they fold up and fit into their small carrying cases. I learned about them at an International Forum of Visual Practitioners conference and am very pleased with them!
excellent and easy easel
By True North
from ottawa, ontario, canada
The advantage of this easel is that it is light and portable and can still hold up to 25 lbs. in weight.
Very sturdy and super easy to adjust and fold up. Love it!
Hardly needs assembly!
Other than the little prop for the canvas, which needs some back and forth to position it, this easel is put together, which makes assembly-phobes happy. It extends to a good height for working in a seated position. I tried hooking the frame of a small canvas over the top support bar and it seemed sturdy enough if one wanted the canvas at a standing height. I don't believe the easel itself is strong enough for really large canvases.

I'm painting again!
from Los Angeles
Unfortunately I don't have an artist studio so I really need something that I could pick up and put away or take out very quickly - this easel is perfect - assembles or disassembles in seconds, and is so sturdy, it's like using a regular easel. The canvas basically gets locked in so you only have one thing to carry and since you can easily leave the painting in while putting legs up or down, this means I can leave it basically assembled away in the utility closet and put it back up when the mood strikes in seconds. I also like being able to fold away completely so it fits in my compact on-the-go life.

Heritage aluminum easel
from Port Townsend, WA
Heritage easel was recommended to me by the Art Supply owner. I attend weekly art model draws, so need very portable carry-along easel. This one is it.The one thing that no one has commented on is the ease of use of the "plastic adjustors" on the legs and upper stand. They are so incredibly easy to adjust. (I hate thumbscrew adjusters-they fall off at the wrong moment).It is a grab & go easel. I love the smooth feel of the aluminum frame- excellent factory finishing job.I was willing to pay more, but paying more doesn't always get you more. My weakness as an artist, is to know when to stop-more is often not a better result. (People who need a taller easel, could slide an extension inside the bottom of the upright (it is open) adjustable board support. I think that wouldn't be too hard to do.)
Just what I needed
from Alexandria, VA
This easel was very easy to set up and seems sturdy. My only concern is that it could be just a little taller. I'm very happy with it.

Very durable easel
from Weymouth, MA
I use the easel to paint my artwork. I like the carrying case to bring along to events. I just wanted the display area to go up about a foot or more for better display to my audience.
