My Review of the US Art Supply Black Steel "Easy-Folding Easel"

What is it exactly?

     From the website. . .
"High quality lightweight tubular steel metal, modern gloss black powder coated finish with non-slip rubber feet.  The Instant Easel is fully collapsible. Set up and tear down each take just a few seconds.  Adjustable display holders support up to 5 lbs. of display weight.  Folds easily to only 15" for storage into small spaces and for easy transporting.  Ideal for trade-shows and on-the-go presenting & lightweight at only 3 pounds."

Review…

I was sent the 63.0" Easy Fold Easel from US Art Supply to review.  

The price for this shirt is $15.96.  Shipping is free with Amazon Prime.


Packaging & Presentation of the US Art Supply Black Steel "Easy-Folding Easel"

I am happy to say that this easel arrived in great condition.  It was shipped in its own cardboard box for safe delivery, and everything was intact.  There were no damages during shipment.  It was taped pretty well.

There was only one side with information, and it was a blue label that provided the brand, product, (7) features of this easel, UPC, and contact information.


The box opens from the side, and the bundle slides right out.  The whole thing was wrapped in protective bubble wrap.


When you take off the bubble wrap, you will find that the easel is rubber-banded together.


My Personal Experience with the US Art Supply Black Steel "Easy-Folding Easel"

I don't get crazy with painting, and I definitely don't consider myself an artist, but I do have little projects that I work on here and there.  I also like to have things on display.  This is by far the easiest way to do so.


All you have to do is take off the rubber band and kind of unfold it.  It pretty much sets itself up.  It uses that 'snap pole' technology... like when you set up a camping tent.



The top is held together well, and this bad boy stands 63.0" tall!  It has three legs that you can self-adjust. There are two little holders that support the actual piece.



You can also adjust these holders. They support up to 5 lbs.  That's a lot.  For this demonstration picture, I used a pretty heavy Norman Rockwell print.



Pros of the US Art Supply Black Steel "Easy-Folding Easel"
  • Ridiculously easy to set up.
  • Folds into a very small bunch-- you can take this anywhere.
  • Holds up to 5 lbs, and in the art/display world, that goes far.
  • Pretty neutral in coloring.
  • From a reputable art supply company.
Cons of the US Art Supply Black Steel "Easy-Folding Easel"
  • I haven't found any cons of this easel.
Summary

I find art to be relaxing and a rejuvenating experience for the soul.  My problem is that I start a picture, and I kind of let it go after a few days.  With an easel like this, I have been able to keep it out and watch the progress over time. (Which is currently a watercolor piece).  It’s a very nice easel, it goes together very easily, and storage is just as simple.  I love that it is just a simplistic style, yet it really allows your eyes to go straight to the piece of art.  It’s lightweight, so you can carry it around with you if you go to a show or something, but it also holds up heavy canvases (up to 5 lbs).  I also like that it is adjustable, that way you can get it to hold up whatever piece you may be working on.
