From MAKING A NAME FOR MYSELF, by driftwith, using the LightPad 930:

I drew my first draft of the logo entirely by hand, then for each version after that, I used my light box to trace over the last, while making changes and tweaking it until I was satisfied.

From PICKING A LIGHT BOX FOR YOUR QUILTING STUDIO by Domestic Anarchy, using the LightPad 930:

Everything from very serviceable and simple models like the Artograph Glo Light Boxes to the big and beautiful Artograph – 17×24 Inch Light Pad . So from $22 to over $200 there is a price for every budget as they say!

From A STACK OF BOOKS AND A NEW TOY by Sew French, using the LightPad 930:

I studied them all, read all the reviews and finally decided on the Artograph Light Pad Light Box in the 12″ x 9″ size.  After finally deciding on this brand, I struggled deciding which size to order. I let reasoning take over and came to this decision based on most often using the printer, in conjunction with tracing, and with traditional sized printer paper size this would be a perfect fit. And it is. I love this thing!

From ARTOGRAPH LED300 DIGITAL ART PROJECTOR by Doug Hoppes, using the LED300 Digital Art Projector:

I found that I no longer have the issues of transferring details from my drawings or photos onto my canvas.  When I was using a light table, the canvas was a bit too thick and I would lose some information.  Definitely one of the better investments that I’ve made.

*We recently released the LED500 Digital Art Projector, which is very similar to the LED300 in features and functions, and is sold at the same price. -Artograph

Delano Flooding

If you’ve been following the news, you may have heard the Crow River in Delano, Minnesota is flooding to the highest level since 1965. The river crested last night (Monday, June 23rd, 2014), but is still high, and more rain is forecast.

Artograph’s home is in Delano, but we’re high and dry here to the east of the river.

Here are some photos and video we took of the flooding in Delano and flooded areas around the town.
