Diane,

I am in awe of how beautiful and well made my new Orchard drafting board is. The customer service was very helpful with my questions and my board arrived packaged superbly, I don’t think shipping damage would have even been possible. I would highly recommend this company and their products to anyone in the market for a drafting board, student or professional. There is absolutely nothing of this quality and elegance available anywhere else and the pricing is incredibly reasonable. I’m so pleased!

Miguel Ángel,

I asked different producers why should I spend my money on their lightboxes, but TBigOrchard gave me the best explanation. I got my beautiful profesional lightbox -Slimline A3- delivered to Córdoba (Spain) within 5 days, safe and nicely. Now my lightbox makes my life easier, and my drawings neater. Excellent customer service! nice people!
