PHILLIP Review from

Clever, portable,
I'm an engineer and this is well-designed and engineered. It folds and stores in a carrying case only 16" long. The best feature is that the easel sets up quickly. Just hold the top joint up and the folded legs automatically snap straight. It's 58" tall and has adjustable supports. It is slender and light weight but holds my 30" X 60" foam core board just fine. (I use my board as a green screen behind me for my Zoom meetings and it works great). It well exceeds my expectations.

They do the job!
Inexpensive and lightweight but they work well. Fold into a 12" carrying case so extremely portable. (I ordered 3 and did not believe there could be more than one in the box they arrived in). If you have a particularly heavy display - something much larger than a flip chart - this may not be for you. But ordinary use, indoor or out, these work wonderfully.

If you understand what this is for, it's a good choice
This is a very lightweight, collapsible display easel. It is best used for situations where you have to carry it with you and put it up quickly. It can hold a flip chart for note taking, but it will be less stable than other types of easels. It is not a great choice for outdoor events. I've used these for public events where we had to display numerous boards, and wanted something that packed up quickly and compactly. For that purpose, it worked great.

light weight and inexpensive
We wanted something lightweight and inexpensive as we needed several. Can't complain about the construction of the easel it seems good but will not hold anything heavier than presentation boards or a flip chart pad. The clips that hold the presentation though are flimsy and break easily. We have replaced them as they break with binder clips.
NAOMI Review from

Indoor Use Only
Easy to assemble, the portable bag that comes with it is great. But because its so lightweight (to be portable) it also means its really only suited for indoor use. Any bit of wind, ANY, and it topples over. There is also nothing from keeping the 3 legs from splaying apart (no cross bar).

Portable - Average Quality
This is a usable and very portable stand. I have had them break, though, but I keep replacing them. So I must like them enough to keep paying for new ones. I haven't found anything better for my needs and think the consensus of 3.5 stars is right.

Compact but Easy
This easel is very compact, but super quick and easy to setup! And it's light weight, so no issue to carry. Best for indoor use; might need a couple of leg weights for an outdoor presentation if there is a breeze and you have secured your display to the easel.

Does NOT Fall Down on the Job!
I bought the black plastic easel for a class presentation, and I tried it out in the store first, thanks to a Staples customer service rep. It opens up in an instant, and stays put. It holds 5 lbs, so any basic paper drawing pad or display board will work well with it. You can move the three legs closer together or wider apart. There are two strong plastic clips on the front legs that flip open and slide up and down until you select the position on the legs that you want to lock them in. They lock by flipping them all the way open, then you place your display pad or visual on a card or board,

Easy to store
Well this Easel is certainly easy to store as it has foldable legs and a nice bag for storage. Once you start folding it, the metal pieces with elastic bands joining them snap into a bundle. I dont think its sturdy enough for regular use if you want to constantly write notes on a pad while teaching an audience. However so far Ive used it to hold a large map and an easel pad that already had notes prepared. For the price and speed of folding and transport, its a pretty nice easel.
WENDIE Review from

Adequate easel
For the price, I shouldn't probably have any issues with this easel, but it is pretty flimsy. For the height, the legs are too narrow and not very sturdy. Don't expect to put anything big or slightly heavy on it or you will have issues. We had to tape our display to the easel to keep it from falling.

Super easy to use!
We bought these for display of photo boards for outdoor Celebration of Life for family member. Easy to set up, use, and take down. As our lives will be filled with a series of funerals going forward, they will get used again and again.
Instant Easel That Travels Nicely Review from
May 20, 2014
Quartet Instant Easel
Normally, when I present a class, (which is about four times a month), I use a hard surface dry erase board on an easel which has attachments for the giant pads of paper. It is quite cumbersome to transport. Starting in July, I will be traveling via airplane to present classes instead of just loading up my SUV and going. So, I did quite a bit of research and found this instant easel. It folds up about 14" in length and 2" in width. The whole thing weighs less than 2#s I'm guessing. So essentially, I can pack it easily in my suitcase or laptop bag. I will have to buy big pads of paper when I ar

Quality Easel
What can I say? I needed an easel and this one was affordable. Something around $25-$30. There were a lot of more expensive easels there but I didn't need an expensive easel. In fact, the first one I saw was like $200+ and I was like, man, I really don't need to pay that much for an easel but it's all I see. But then I looked a bit further away and there were the less expensive easels. They weren't quite intuitively shelved, I'll tell you that. Anyway, I used this one last week and it held the stuff like an easel should. It was a little confusing at first because the little hands on the easel

Easel is the Best!
I use this easel to help me teach my chess classes in NYC! I hang my Demo Board on the easel and were good to go! A great and inexpensive product that lasts and is lightweight, so its no problem carrying from class to class.

I would recommend it. Economical, lightweight, easy to assemble. I liked the carry case which makes it easy to store. Used outside with no problem.

Very Handy Easel
I purchased this for an outdoor rally. The easel is very portable and easy to setup. Too, it was inexpensive and by far, the best deal in a portable easel.

I love this easel. It's the size of a small umbrella and folds into an easel. It fits easily in a briefcase or purse and requires no assembly. I have used other easels for trial, but this saves me so much time.

Display easel
This is such a great item to own. It folds up - easily...which is great. It is also easy to set up. It has so many possibilities/functions...teaching a subject, directing a crowd, displaying menu, displaying a birthday or special events greeting.

This is a very practical easel. Its slim and easy to place anywhere. The bag is nice for storage that will fit in any closet. Lightweight and easy to move around.I would recommend this for any classroom home office or work office.

Could be better if they add something to make it more stable upright
I think it would work better if there were a click function to help keep it to stay upright. It needs to be adjusted every time you take board off and put it back on easel.
SV cafe Review from
June 20, 2014
very good product
I bought this item along with a white board for our cafe business. The easel works beautifully with the white board which i also purchased at staples. This easel is adjustable so that it can be used for displaying my white board on the floor and also can be adjusted down to use as a table display. Depending on what size white board you purchase. I have a larger white board which makes this easel perfect for our business as a floor display for our daily menu specials. I would definately recommend this item to any business owner. Its sturdy and serves its purpose in our business

Solves the problem
I bought this board for work on the go & to use any where in house . Its looks elegant & professional and just enough space to explain & engage your audiences . I recommend it for those who use paper sheets boards- - for white board - its just ok.
Granny D Review from
January 30, 2015
I thought I was purchasing the heavier model I had purchsed before, which by the way, works very well for gallery display. When this arrived I was somewhat dissappointed but they ended up working well for matted pieces so I kept them. The beauty of these are that they set up with one snap! There is nothing to put together and they fold up the same way. They are great for shows, or other situations where you need lightweight, compact and portable. Keep in mind though, these are not meant to support over 5 pounds.

Bad easel. White board and markers are good.
The board and markers are fine but the easel is junk (imo). It's going back! Flimsey, and the board barely sets on it. It is very unstable. Don't try to write on the board while it's on this easel unless you are holding on securely. I would suggest buying a different easel!

Easy and Efficient
I ran to Staples and bought this at the last minute for an event our company was attending. I had a big poster of pictures of our patients (dogs) in wheelchairs, pool therapy, and underwater treadmill. The event was to educate the general public as well as rescue groups of our services and how we can also help the injured dogs in shelters heal to the best of our ability in order to become more adoptable. Anyway, I didn't have a place to put the poster board and it kept flying away. I went to Staples while someone else ran our booth and found this product. Not only did it do the job, but it is

Display Easel is perfect for ZOOM presentations!
Right out of the box, the carrying case is sturdy and fits in my rolling briefcase. The easel opens very quickly and can be placed anywhere within seconds! It holds my 3' x 2' dry erase board during ZOOM Meetings.

Easy Easel
I bought this easel for use in displaying a card sign for my organization and it really is easy to use, light to carry and has a little bag to keep it all together. There are no screws to lose, or brackets to break off or pinch your fingers.The easel is sturdy when it is set up and compact when folded down. I bought the 60 inch size but there were several other sizes in the same style and they all work the same way. If all you need is a tabletop display, you can get the smaller one and it has the same features as the larger sizes. I highly recommend the Quartet Instant Easel for trade show, of

Very easy to use and sturdy too!
This is essentially a large foldable tripod designed to hold white boards and posters. The elastic cord makes it easy to deploy the easel (the legs literally snaps together) and to take down. I especially liked the snap-in design of the shelf pegs making them easily adjustable to fit boards of any size. Of course you are trading portability and easy deployment for strength but I've found that the easel holds light to medium weight objects well and is sturdier than I expected. Definitely a good buy for your money and I liked the travel bag that is included to help transport / hold the easal whe
Review from
July 17, 2014
This easel was very easy to assemble. Practically snaps into place if you let all the legs loose. They do need to extend a bit so they can snap. It didn't feel like it was very sturdy. I would not trust it with anything very heavy. The legs didn't spread very far apart. It did come with a handy carrying case for when you aren't using it; however, the tightening ball on the string broke off right away. Would NOT recommend for anything heavy. Had a foam board to mount on it, and wasn't sure it would stay.
Jmjan Review from

Light weight & quick setup!
I purchase this so I could put a dry erase easel on it. The easel I purchased weighs less than 5 lbs. While the legs of this easel are a little wobbly, spreading them wide will help, and it did support the easel. This easel is lightweight, comes with a travel pouch to store it in, and sets up quickly...faster than my tent poles do. It just folds as easily as well, though that takes just a bit longer than it does to open. I would definitely recommend this product.
Brandon Review from
July 31, 2014
Quick and easy setup
Works great for foamcore presentation boards. Fast-and-easy setup too. The Instant Easel comes in a little carrying pouch to keep the collapsible legs contained. The whole thing collapses down and can be stored in a carrying pouch that's about the size (and looks like) an umbrella. If you hold the top of the Instant Easel while you remove it from the bag, the legs dangle and most of the legs will pop right into place. --BAM! Instant Easel! Take down is easy too--less than 2 minutes.

Definitely an "Instant Easel"
Quickly unfolds to a lightweight easel. Holds posters very nicely. Folds up to store, for next time you need it.

Can't Tutor Without It!
This easel is easy to put up and take down (but first time take down is tricky.) It holds a traditional tri-fold poster easily. It can be adjusted easily. After collapsing it has its own carry bag. It is super light. I have not found anything quite like it. It is inexpensive. I tutor Classical Conversations weekly and have to be able to transport things easily. It is fabulous.
SANDY Review from
October 24, 2018
Compact and light but
Compact and light but a bit of a handful to put together. The legs are formed of many pieces all connected by an elastic band which makes it foolproof, but just a little logistically challenging. If youre going by plane, choose this one. If you dont need it to be so compact, it might be easier to go with another one
Todd Review from
June 10, 2019
Good for display
I got these on clearance and they work fine. Get them if youre putting them in an area that wont get touched or moved by wind and youll be fine. 4 stars because if you really need something sturdy, these arent the ones to get. If you just want to display something that no one will touch, you can get away with these and save some money.
Jill Review from

Easy to use
This easel comes in a convenient carry bag. It is very easy to put up and take down, is light weight and easy to store. I highly recommend it for light weight objects. I'm not sure how much weight it can hold as I use it to display a foam back poster board. The only reason I give it a 4 instead of a 5 is that It's a little unstable. If someone were to bump into it it would fall over. So long as you are using it indoors (ourdoors if it's not windy) and in a protected area, you should be fine.
Donna Strong / HEARTS OF FAITH Review from
May 1, 2014
We purchased this easel for using at a recent music convention. It went up very quickly; locked in place securely; and was just what we needed for the sign that was to be displayed. Even though the easel is light, it stayed in place and didn't move ... although it is light enough to move to the perfect spot after locking in place. The carry bag is great and keeps the easel intact for transporting. The price for this easel is very inexpensive for the quality of the product. We are very pleased with our purchase and recommend it highly!
DelawareGoodGuy Review from
May 7, 2014
A little too basic....
This instant easel is a product that uses shockcords (like in camping tents) to fairly easily set up. This is an excellent product for indoor use. There is only one point where the three legs are attached, at the apex, so that means there is no true means of making the easel steady, especially in an outdoor situation. Some of our volunteers seem flummoxed by the chart holders are attached to two of the legs, and several have been snapped off so far. Fortunately, ACCO/Quartet has replacements in stock and provide them with little or no trouble at all.
Brenda Q Review from

You get what you pay for
I purchased this to use with an 11x18 white board. It was not durable enough to support the white board and be able to write on it. The legs wobbled and the little arms that support the item to be displayed kept slipping down. If you are going to use it only to display something like a poster or a piece of art, and not continue to touch it (like writing on the white board), then this would probably work fine for you. I had to return this one and will be looking for something more durable and sturdy.
CrownMe Review from
February 27, 2014
Convenient Easel
I love the fact that this easel is collapsible and so easy to set up. It comes w/a carrying case which makes toting it very convenient. However, I must deduct 1 star b/c while it claims to support up to 5lbs, mine seems to have trouble supporting a small flip chart (2'x3'), which I know does not weigh 5lbs. It's nice that the supports are adjustable, however, they tended to slip when the flip chart was placed on the supports. Overall, not a bad product for the price ... it withstood the jobs I needed to complete.
