Comments about GBC Quartet® Instant Portable Easel:

This is an awesome Easel! No brainer on assembly... just pops right up! I love that it doesn't require putting posts together. It even has a convenient carry bag! A great investment for folks like me who plan events and promos!

Quick and easy setup

By Brandon

Comments about GBC Quartet® Instant Portable Easel:

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.

What a difference these made!

By John2014

Comments about GBC Quartet® Instant Portable Easel:

With a previous employer, I frequently was involved w/ public meetings requiring multiple display boards. Once we hauled over 20 wooden easels around to meetings over several days. When the firm purchased a number of Instant Easels, the setup/tear down time was cut in half (not to mention the splinters, frustration, etc.!). I remember the biggest downside being the broken clips and difficulty in finding replacements. I wasn't responsible for this, so didn't think much about it at the time. I just knew I didn't want to be in front of a client with a duct-taped clip on my easel! Years later I am at a smaller company that recently had a meeting where a couple of the Instant Easels were used. One of them had a broken clip, so I looked at Staples website to order replacements and they weren't shown. I called the store to see if they had them in stock and they acted as if no one had ever asked about this before. I got on Quartet's website and the only mention of clips is in the comments section...people complaining about the difficulty in finding replacements when they break. Enough time has passed...I'm a big fan of the product, just get on the stick about making replacement parts available easily through your distributors!

Moderately Okay

By LowTech

Comments about GBC Quartet® Instant Portable Easel:

You're getting what you pay for with this - it's exactly as it looks in the image - 3 skinny metal legs with 2 small pieces that jut out to hold things and stuff. It's not particularly sturdy, it's easily unbalanced and is easily tipped over if you knock into it. If you just need a basic easel to display something only, I suppose this works. I would never trust it however, to hold up in a presentation. And I certainly wouldn't try to write anything on whatever media you might be using it to prop up.

Don't waste your $

Comments about GBC Quartet® Instant Portable Easel:

If I could give this product less than 1 star I would. Flimsy, unstable, and generally a terrible stand. I only wanted it to hold up a poster mounted to foam core board and it continually fell over.

This product was good except that the top didn't have any clips to attach board as well. Overall product was good.

Quartet Tabletop Easel Review

By PI Historical Society

from Presque Isle, Maine

Verified Buyer

Comments about GBC Quartet® Instant Portable Easel:

We are a small historical society with a museum and several traveling exhibits. As such, we have a need for easels that are easy to pack up and to store, but at the same time, they must be sturdy enough to hold medium size framed objects. We tried other types of easels and were always disappointed. A local college librarian actually recommended these easels and, honestly, we were skeptical as they look flimsy at first glance. However, we have found them to work exceedingly well for our purposes and have now purchased several. They hold small, light objects as well as our larger, heavy wood framed artifacts.

Comments about GBC Quartet® Instant Portable Easel:

The Quartet Tabletop "Easel" is exceedingly easy to use. I was also impressed with it's sturdiness and flexibility. Great choice for displaying anything around 2 feet or smaller.

Easel

By Alma Makurat

from Bloomington, IN

Verified Buyer

Comments about GBC Quartet® Instant Portable Easel:

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.

Very easy to use and sturdy too!

By Eddy L

from Elk Grove, CA

Verified Buyer

Comments about GBC Quartet® Instant Portable Easel:

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 when not in use.
