Product Questions and Answers

I want to trace / duplicate one of my drawings onto Strathmore 300 medium surface drawing paper. Will I be able to see an original drawing in black ink through this paper weight with this light box?

- Asked by KS on 15-Sep-13

You can use the Strathmore 300 sketch paper. However, we would suggest using the Strathmore 300 Series Tracing Paper for a more transparent paper instead.

This is the perfect size lite box to use for callagrahy. Stores easily and makes doing invitation so much easier. Great price too. Received the lite box in short order no problems.

This was good stuff. It met my expectations, and works great for what I needed. I am using it as part of the animation process.
Rated by: Shana A. in Colo. Spgs, CO
Great value for a great product. Easy to use, and easy to carry. Does get a little hot after an hour or so of work. Overall a great buy.
Rated by: Diane B. in Ayer, MA
I recently purchased the LightTracer for making my wedding save the date cards and invitations. I needed the LightTracer to use my brass embossing templates and tools better. It works perfectly for what I wanted. It is very light and compact so it is easy to put away when I'm not using it. I'm so glad i found this website and purchased the LightTracer. Thanks!

This light box is great and the price was great also, misterart has the best!!!
Rated by: Peg W. in Vero Beach, FL
This light box is amazing! The lighting is beautiful, cool and not glaringly bright. It is soft, gentle lighting. The size is perfect! I could not have done better.
Rated by: Margaret W. in Vero Beach, FL
I am so pleased with this light box. It's an excellent size and the lighting is beautiful!!!
Rated by: S.R. A. in Seattle, WA
I dig this light box simply for its size and wieght. It's bright enough to let me see through two sheets of Blue Line paper (Bristol board essentially) and I can sling it around on my lap or easel from a thin space between my desk and bookshelf. In contrast to older incarnations of light boxes in which one must strap on the wieght-lifter's back brace before lugging it out, or the later versions made of tin or aluminium that would snag and tear anything from clothes to virile flesh on one tiny corner of the awkward beast of a contraption this small, plastic and light cheat-box is a peach.

I'm extremely pleased with Artograph Light Tracer Lite Box that I recently purchased. It is just the right size for tracing embrodiery designs for quilting. Living 100 miles from any shopping, I find this is a great way to shop for items needed. I'm also very pleased with the prompt shipping and that it arrived intact.
Rated by: Dawn L. in West Des Moines, IA
Great product at a great price.
Rated by: Jen S. in Westford, MA
This light box is great and I was thrilled to find the extra bulbs I needed at MisterArt too! I use the light box for both quilting and for embossing cards -- it's perfect!
Rated by: Anne H. in San Angelo, TX
I absolutely love this light box! It is lightweight, easy to store, and inexpensive for crafting and making my quilt labels. Misterart had the best price anywhere on the net and provides FAST shipping. I am very happy and would recommend this item highly.
Rated by: Lanette P. in Copper Center, AK
Product was just as described. A good work surface and good lighting for a reasonable price. Just what I was looking for at a more affordable rate than I found anywhere else. Timely shipping to Alaska. Thank you!
Rated by: cathy h. in lititz, PA
Actually, I've yet to open the box because this is an Easter gift for my son, age 11. However, he uses this exact product at school in art class and just loves it. It's bright, easy to use, light (in terms of weight) and the right price! In fact, MisterArt had it for at least $7-10 less than the major craft-store retailers! Plus, you pay no tax and with low to no- shipping costs, it was a steal! Thanks Mr. Art!

Great product selection, great prices.
Rated by: Laurel D. in Olmsted Falls, OH
Excellent customer service. Shipment received faster than anticipated and in perfect condition. This is very useful on so many of my needlework projects. It is small and lightweight so it is easy to carry with me anywhere. The pricing is excellent and will continue to make purchases. Very large selection of goods and search mode is easy to use to find everything.
Rated by: Jannette B. in Upland, CA
This box is great, it casts good even light. The surface area can take on a decent sized project. It is lightweight and stores nicely.

Great service. . .great product. I needed to have something for viewing some very old negatives and this is the perfect solution. I will no doubt make further purchases. Many Thanks, GG
Rated by: Sharon N. in Anchorage, AK
This is a very handy lightbox. It is a nice compact size and does a great job of lighting your work surface. If you are tracing artwork it evens works well with thick high quality art paper. I also like the small tool tray for holding pens and other tools.
Rated by: Ciry N. in Chiloquin, OR
I am very happy with this lightbox. It is exactly what I wanted and will be very useful in my quilting work. I was also very pleased with the speed of delivery and the careful packing of the item.
Rated by: Amy P. in Landing, NJ
Great little lightbox. Serves it's purpose well. Makes tracing applique patterns much easier. Perfect size for taking to classes or other travel.
Rated by: john o. in nyc, NY
this tracer is a good size & very lite weight. i only wish it had a better way to fasten the edges of paper so there isn't as much slipping. over all im happy with it though.
Rated by: Yuna B. in La Porte, IN
While a little bulkier than I had anticipated, this light box is excellent. The box is excellent for animation and for general art use. If anyone wants a low-cost light box, this is the unit for you.
Rated by: debbie f. in stroudsburg, PA

Nice size at a great price. The little pencil slot is helpful.
Rated by: Wendy H. in San Diego, CA
A nice light box at an excellent price.
Rated by: vicky g. in bar, IL
I've been working on searching and organizing 50 years worth of photo negatives and slides. Being able to layout the negatives on the light box and then catalog subjects saved me hundreds of hours.
