From EPIC CHILDHOOD, reviewing the LightPad, LightTracers, and Revolutions in creative, educational play:

“First off I want to say that I love them all! The LED LightTracer is… great for tracing and drawing, very nice for light play. The LightPad Revolution is totally awesome, very unique, and totally impressive! …It is wonderful for tracing and drawing and can be very cool for light play! The LightPad 950 is THE BEST light pad / light panel you can find. This thing is the king of the hill, or the Cadillac of light pads…”


From JACQUARD PRODUCTS YouTube Channel, about using the LightPad for Jacquard’s New Marbling Kit:

Four new videos showing different techniques and artwork using the marbling kit and the Artograph LightPad are on Artograph’s YouTube channel under “LightPad Art done with Artograph LightPad.” Watch them all! The artist told us, of the LightPad and this wonderful artwork he created, “It is so awesome and makes my marbling look fabulous. We have been releasing a new marbling video each day this week using the light pad. They look great.” Thanks for sharing!


From PAPER AND INK ARTS BLOG, about using the LightPad for Calligraphy:

Diana Brown and the Amazing Artograph Lightpad: Diana found the lightpad to be one of her favorites as well. “…I love this tool, ” she says, “This Artograph Lightpad is a wonderful investment… saves time and frustration!!! I’m delighted with this purchase!”


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 HERE’S WHY WE LOVE THE ARTOGRAPH LITE BOX by Quilting-Tidbits.com, using the LightTracer:

I find a lite box a must to own and it makes tracing all my designs really easy and quickly done within minutes. I use mine constantly especially for applique work and pattern transfers! Click To Get Your hands On The Light Tracer box!


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
