Nice for the price.
from Oak Creek, Wisconsin
The easel is relatively inexpensive. If your application entails hard use, pay extra and get something sturdier. For simple display in and area where there is little danger of it being bumped, this is a good value. It looks nice in the flat black finish. (The blond version is actually natural pine.) The assembly instructions are somewhat sketchy, but had it down to an art by the time I was working on my third of three.
Hard to store easels.
By J. Schunk
from Cincinnati, OH
The price is reasonable and the quality is nice for the price. I'm not sure if I missed it in the description, but it does require assembly, and does not collapse. They are very hard to store. They do seem sturdy and they were easy to assemble.
Merchant response: Thank you for taking the time to write a review! These easels do collapse. Just loose the wingnut in the middle of the tray to temporarily remove it. With the wingnuts on the legs loosened, the legs fold in half, and the top wingnut can be loosened to bring the legs together. If you have further questions, please feel welcome to contact our Product Information Department at 1-800-933-2542 or email@example.com. They're available from 8am to 5:30pm CST weekdays, and they're happy to help!
A great value
from Winston- Salem, NC
I have a set of these in my classroom for display purposes. They're my favorite! They're so good, I just bought one for myself to use as part of a display at a friend's wedding.
Nice looking easels
from Vista, CA
The easels are very professional looking and attractive. I will be using them to display my artwork. I was somewhat disappointed that they do not fold up as easily as I was hoping for storage and transfer to other locations. The light weight seems to be saved by the chain, which adds balance.
Cheap price, not very durable and sturdy for heavy frames
By Art Teacher
from Upstate, NY
I purchased (10) of these for art show display purposes. I found this easel works great for holding smaller frames (8x10, 11x14, etc) which was my immediate need as I have had a hard time finding easels elsewhere in this A-frame style (with the horizontal bar across to hold artwork across the bottom of the frames). I found the easels are flimsy when bearing heavyweight frames, the legs will bow a little but did were able to support a 16x20 size frame (just made me nervous with people walking nearby as it was bowing). They would certainly do the job for poster board presentation use, etc. My main issue with these is they are not very durable (especially when transporting them). I was hoping they would fold up small and they don't without unscrewing it all and taking it apart. I found too, that they break easily where the three legs join at the tripod A-frame top. I have only used these easels about 5-10 times and at least one of them breaks each time I transport them. Not ideal if you are needing to move them around a lot or to hold heavyweight items. For lightweight needs in one location this could be a good deal for the price. Otherwise, I'd say no.
Merchant response: This easel is intended for use displaying canvases, panels, photographs, or signs up to 28" high. Framed works, as you've noticed, are heavier and can cause damage or excessive wear. If you feel that any of your easels are defective, or you just are not completely satisfied, please give us a call at 1-800-723-2787. We're here to help ensure you have the best product for your needs!
Affordable and attractive easels!

Easy to assemble and sturdy. Loved that the legs had the rubber tabs so that the easel would not slip.

Easy to use Easel
from Woodland Hills, CA
Used the product to prop up blown up photographs. Easy to use and sturdy. May look a little cheaper than other options but perfect for what I needed.
