It's white & I like it.
from Kent, OH
Comments about Alvin Heritage Gridded Sketch Boards:
I like this product because first of all It's white & second It has grid lines & cutout handle. But the grid lines are a bit damaged & Its clip (for holding paper) is not good & a bit will damage the paper under its pressure. (I bought size 18.5X19.5 and as you can see in the picture it has only one clip.)
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Sketch Board Arrived Quickly
from So Orange County, CA
I searched the internet to find a giant clipboard and found this one on Blick. I did not get out a tape measure when ordering so when it arrived I was surprised on how large it was. However, it works perfectly for my needs. I wanted a board that I could bring into our family room and doodle and watercolor while watching TV. This size works well.
I bought this one only because the 15"x 16" Blick version was out of stock. I thought the grid would be a bonus but it's printed crooked so it can't be used with a T-square. That's not a big deal to me...but the one I received has such an extremely overwhelming moldy smell like it was stored in a moldy basement for years. I tried to coat it with shellac to seal the smell in (with partial success). I hope the Blick version comes back in stock soon because I like the smaller size.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Merchant response: We're sorry to hear about the faults in the board you received from us, and we'd like to take care of this for you. One of our Customer Care Agents will be in touch with you soon.

Clamp on medium size is weak
from san antonio, texas
I was prepared to love this product. I still like most of it's features, and I like having a smaller alternative for smaller size paper, but the clamp just won't hold the paper. I put a half dozen sheets on it for class and I had to use additional clamps. So I reduced it to two sheets of paper and I still couldn't get the clamp to hold. The price is only average if you actually end up with a board which holds paper the way it's supposed to.
Merchant response: We're sorry to hear that the clips on the board you received weren't working properly. One of our Customer Care Agents will be in touch via email so we can take care of this for you.
Great product for the price
from Goodyear, AZ
The board was larger than I imagined - I didn't pay close enough attention to the stated size...so it is. But big for me. Other than that, it is very nice! Great price! I will use it a lot.
"Sturdy but light weight"
from New York
Easy to carry along with other materials to sketch classes or plein air set ups. Grid comes in handy for testing horizons, in preliminary sketches.

To grid or not to grid
from Novato, Ca.
I love these sketch boards because I can utilize the grid, or not, depending on what I am working on. I have all three sizes, for ease of preparing a grid of different sizes. Not necessary if you get the largest size, but I use the smaller size most and like to take it with me.

not what I was expecting
from fairfax, Va
The size is a little odd...not convenient for big paper... not needed for little paper.
