For Christmas I asked for a light box. In my quilting I’ve been using more stitchery and applique things and I was tired of having to wait for a sunny day to trace my designs by using the window.
My family wasn’t quite sure which one would be best, so they gave me some money so that I was able to purchase one.
I found the artograph’s light pad.
It is a thinner light box, about as thin as mac book. It does have an AC adapter, but uses a LED light instead of a light bulb which means the screen is a lot brighter.
Because it runs on an LED it is suppose to last longer then then light of a normal light box. They say that if you run it 4 hours/day it will run for 20 years. Now I am not about to run my own experiment here to test it out, so I will be just trusting the company on this. I’ll keep you posted.
For now I am loving it. I can see my design sheets perfectly, it is light (in weight) and it is so nice to trace on.
They are a little expensive, almost double the amount of the light box but well worth it. The store I purchased it at let me try both the pad and box and I am thrilled with the outcome.
