The Daylight Wafer LED Light Box is only 3/8" (0.8 cm) thick — perfect for on-the-go artists. Ultra thin, ultra light, and ultra easy to transport, it also boasts fully dimmable LED lights for a bright, even spread of illumination from edge to edge.
The Wafer is ideal for calligraphy, stenciling, scrapbooking, embossing, quilting, embroidery, sewing, and much more. It's completely smooth and frameless, so your project lies flat and won't get hung up on edges. It has a US/metric gridded border for measuring.
Emitting very little heat, the Daylight Wafer LED Light Box is powered by an AC adapter (included). Its LEDs are rated to last 50,000 hours.
This latest version is A2 size, with a 18" × 23½" illuminated area.

Students use Wafer 2 daily and they love it!
Comments about Daylight Wafer LED Light Box:
The students in my high school art class use it every day for the past two years. We only had one, and it was so popular we got a second one. Now I'm pairing them up two to a Wafer 2 to repeat their detailed mandala designs into eight identical slices. Just got approval to add two more. Our learning disabled students love to print their favorite characters and then trace them. Art club and afterschool students love it.PROS - thin, compact, easy to dim and brighten, easy to move and store. Best on market.CONS - slight design flaw is that the placement of the one on/off/dimmer button is awkward because it is where you tend to lean when you work. So you just have to turn it back on.Save the box and receipt. The first one we had wouldn't turn on after 3 months of daily use. Blick immediately replaced it and had me send back the broken one. They were great. No problems it since.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I love this!
from Janesville, WI
I can keep this on my drawing table without it getting in my way. I do very realistic work in colored pencil and I find that if I lay my reference photo on a light pad I can see into the shadows to find details not readily noticed. It's great.
Daylight Wafer LED LightBox Review 2/24/2017
from Minneapolis, MN
I am a professional artist who has had a lightbox/pad on my wish list for a very long time, but never prioritized it until about a month ago. I should have made it a priority as soon as this model was available.PROS: 1). It is solidly constructed. 2). It has a VERY bright light... 3). ...Which is dimmable! 4). I can draw or go over my work in a dark room if I want (I have). 5). One-Touch technology to turn off/on and dim/brighten. 6). The power cord unplugs from the main unit, so there is less chance you will pull the cord out of the unit when not in use.NOT-SO-GREAT: 1). The cord is on the right side (I'm a lefty, so this is more me that it, but I had to write something I did not like.
Good for my purposes
This light box is convenient to use. I prefer a sunny window whenever possible, but on cloudy days or nighttime, I use it to transfer sketches to watercolor paper.
Looking forward to years of using this product

Love the stream line and size.
Great for calligraphers
from San Juan, PR
I bought this for my husband who is a calligrapher. He is delighted with it. It's light and easy to transport. The dimmer makes it very versatile. He says it is absolutely perfect the way it is.

I use it for tracing. I like the fact that one can control the lighting and it is lightweight.
from Seattle, WA
Wafer 2's LEDs provide beautiful even light with no heat, the dimmer feature is very helpful, and the amazing 3/8" thinness completely transforms the experience of using a lightbox. The larger size (17 x 12 1/2) is worth the expense. This design warrants an entirely new name - there's nothing boxy about it.

The Perfect Answer!
By P Sands
from Bedford, NH
I think I have waited all my artistic life for this light box...and that is quite a few years! I have had others that were well made, the best even being homemade, and in a pinch I have set up two stacks of books with a piece of glass across the top and a light bulb underneath! The problem with all has always been that they were heavy and cumbersome to store anywhere. Much of my art work involves doing preliminary drawings and once satisfied, I trace over them onto the final paper. When I saw this light box I was sure it would be perfect and answer all the previous drawbacks of others. IT IS and IT DOES! I am totally enthusiastic and delighted. Have only had it a few weeks and if it lasts the long time I am hoping it will I will be even more so! So far there is nothing that isn't great about it and though a bit pricey, a good and oft used tool is worth the price. Best features are slimness, even lighting over all the large smooth surface, ability to adjust brightness and ease of storage and portability.
My new favorite thing
As someone who had the whole style thick light box this is such an improvement. Its brighter, lighter, no flickering. Sharp clean lines and dims. Purchased on sale and fast free shipping.
