letting it normalize is critical
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.
It realy lays flat

Product size was perfect for my needs
from Vernon, British Columbia, CANADA
Shipping was fast. Product looks great. Slightly larger than it was described as (by 1/4" on both dimensions), but better too large than too small. Well enough packaged to prevent from being squished. Happy with the product. Ready to start drawing again on my drawing table now!
Great product, excellent service and fast delivery
By Ollie H
You learn a lot about a company when things go wrong - in my case when I received the incorrect size of drawing board cover. Blick's customer service was excellent: a replacement was sent out quickly, and with no fuss.Thank you very much.I won't hesitate to use this company again for mail order supplies.
Alvin Vyco Drawing Board Covers
I use this product to cover the top surfaces of my drawing table and taboret. I use various types of mediums, and the covers protect the furniture and clean up very well.The only drawback is that the covers are a bit thin.c

White covers on drawing table and taboret, perfect
Very nice item.
Although it took a while to reach the desired degree of flatness when placed on the drawing board, it was worth the wait. having the option to use the green or beige side is a plus.

Drawing board cover
from Flower Mound, Tx
As a hobbiest and crafter as well as a watercolorist, my drafting table is used for many projects. I have found the Alvin drawing board cover to be the best surface for all of my creative endeavors.

Keep it clean!
from Seattle, WA
I've been drawing on a table without a cover for some time, and once installed, it takes some getting used to. The cover has a smooth, satin finish which accepts pen and pencil pressure easily, and helps keep straight lines. It also helps keep your paper and supplies in place by having a better tack than the melamine board underneath.But for those who are wondering, keep it clean. The cover picks up tape residue, which can cause smudges on your paper. It also holds eraser crumbs better, so sweeping it off more regularly is recommended. It's color is a neutral grey which is perfect, since it won't cause your eyes any chroma shift (leave that to your lighting!).My only real concern is that after 36 hours of laying flat on the floor in a warm room, with weighted books on the surface, the cover still shows ripples along the width of the cover where it was rolled for storage and shipping. Not a major concern, but getting the cover to completely flatten out might be a challenge. Don't use tape in the middle though, as you'll have ridges to contend with!
