Why do artists love our products? 

Multimedia Artboard is my go to product for painting trips. The product is rigid, thin and light weight, which allows for a lot of panels in a very small space. The multimedia board is a blank surface which I can customize or use just as it comes. It is easy to glue my preferred choice of linen, give it a coat of ground, gesso, or PVA. The choices of added surface choices are endless. Because it is thin, I can easily customize the size on location with a razor. It is the perfect product for plein air painting and for painting color sketches in studio.    ~ Roger Dale Brown - Hear what Roger thinks about Multimedia Artboard

"I’ve been using Multimedia Artboard for over​ ​15 years and immediately fell in love with it! ​  What drew me to Multimedia Artboard was its capacity to be wet​​ without buckling. This durable light weight archival surface enables me to use expressive brush work. The pure joy of painting on this exquisite board will surely be a lifetime of experiences! ~ Susan Nicholas Gephart

"Multimedia Artboards are my "go to” for Plein Air. I do an enormous amount of traveling and these products have really afforded me freedom and the ability to travel much lighter. I highly recommend them!" ~ Stephanie Birdsall
