Comments about Alvin Vyco Drawing Board Covers:
Looks and will hopefully work great once it flattens out. Its has been over a month with weights along the edges and tape down on one side and it still has waves and curls up at the ends from its memory of being rolled up.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This cover looks like what I saw in an art supply store and it is what I expected...except that as it came rolled up, getting it to flatten out is turning into more of a problem than I expected. The instructions said to unroll and let it breath/set for 24 hrs. Well, it's been sitting for 72 hours and there are still all these small vertical ripples...I can't secure it until it's completely flat and the instructions say not to apply heat.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Unfortunately, I returned this item because, after reading the hazard warning on the package, I didn't feel it was appropriate to have it in my home studio. I used it before in an office setting years ago however was not aware of the hazard. Thank you for the ease of return.
Quality product. Takes a while to lay flat after being rolled

Makes my Drawing Board look Brand New.Cleans up easily, just wipe with damp cloth.Have not found any negative aspects of this product.
Been using this for years. It is long lasting since both sides are usable. It is extremely convenient for using an exact knife since it is self healing and you do not need to use an additional cutting board. It is a bit pricey, but like they say "you get what you pay for".
This is where to buy Alvin Vyco Drawing Board Covers.

I've been using this product for over 50 years for a drafting table cover and there is no substitute.

Less strain, more gain!
By Proteus Design
from Madison, WI
I have been using Alvin drawing board cover for over 35 years. Recently, I replaced the green cover from a drafting table I inherited 50 years ago with gray / white Alvin Vyco. The cover performs better than expected because the gray side greatly reduces eye strain and allows me to be more productive for greater lengths of time. Gray was a better color choice for me, rather than the traditional green option. The manufacturer has pre-cut sizes rolled into a tube and packaged for shipping. I strongly recommend that the consumer unroll and roll the board cover in the opposite direction. Let it sit for 12-24 hours before placing it on the drawing board, otherwise both ends will want to roll back. It seems to have a memory.
