Possibilities as limitless as your imagination...

Midwest Studio’s Birch Artist Panels are high-quality and cut with precision. Each studio grade panel goes through a rigorous inspection process to ensure they are free from material defects. These high-density panels are perfect for all mediums and artistic levels. The cross lamination of plies helps prevent warping when introduced to moisture. The panels are not prepped, primed, or cradled; this allows for artistic freedom and easy framing!
