Hardbord features

Strength and Durability

Hardbord is the most stable substrate on the market for your artwork and is used for all Ampersand Museum Series coated panels.

Ready to Customize

Unprimed wood panels are ideal for artists that prefer a quality surface to seal and prime with a ground of their choice. A great alternative to canvas, Hardbord is perfectly suited for all acrylic gessoes, specialty grounds, traditional gesso, and oil primers.

Highly Versatile

Ultra-smooth Hardbord is a great surface for mixed media, collage, plein air, metal leaf, heavy paint applications and is also a perfect support to mount watercolor papers, photos, fabrics, prints, and more.

Handcrafted Cradles

Premium-grade, 13-ply birch plywood cradles provide a beautiful profile and offer maximum support to protect your art and prevent warping.

Eco-Friendly and Artist Safe

Central to Ampersand’s mission is to ensure that our products do not harm the environment or the artists who use them. Both our domestic and imported panels are made from FSC-certified forest products that promote sustainable forests and are also free from formaldehyde or harmful VOCs (volatile organic compounds), unlike other hardboards and MDF boards.

Made in the USA

Proudly handcrafted in our factory in Buda, Texas. Unparalleled quality and craftsmanship have made Ampersand Art Supply the leader in painting panels for over 25 years.
