    S817. Viva Paper towels, 12 sheets

    "I've used them exclusively for at least 8 years. They don't leave fuzz on the pen points or brushes."

    We have made these available for those outside the USA or in areas where this brand is not readily available. This is a small pack of 12 sheets for easy shipping.

    S690. Airlite Drawing Board 18x24.

A drawing board can be used as a lapboard or on an easel at a slant to help prevent neck and back pain.

    S412. Drafting Tape
    Drafting Tape
    3/4: wide, 400" length

    Drafting tape is a less sticky version of masking tape and is for temporary taping. Use it to attach your paper to your drawing board or table. With many papers it will peel off without damaging the paper. You should slowly and carefully peel of the tape. Also, leave the items taped only as long as necessary. These kinds of tapes can become permanently adhered to surfaces over time, especially with exposure to bright light.
