What Customers are Saying about Ampersand...

About Ampersand Claybord

"I have been using Ampersand Claybord cradled panels for several years. I am an abstract painter and the galleries love getting panels that are ready for hanging and without a frame that can be distracting to many abstract works. The panels are a high quality and my artwork will probably be around for longer than I will---and still in good condition due to the rigid support."

About Ampersand Gessobord

"The Ampersand company puts out a quality product. Their gessoboard has just enough tooth for my acrylics, and the board is stable with no warping or buckling. I do traditional landscapes, but the 2" cradle gives my work a more modern feel. The cradle also saves me from having to choose a frame that my customers may or may not prefer. And, since I sometimes use a non-traditional size, such as the 12" x 36" pictured, I don't have to buy a costly custom frame."
