The pad is made of a firm, but easily pierced foam that is about 6" x 8" and 1cm thick. It fits in the Easy Screen frame to support the screen itself. This pad is so self-healing that it will last a lifetime! It will allow you to work efficiently without damaging your work surface. If you are going to pierce paper, you should have this tool.
Note: Do not emboss on a this or any other type of pad. The embossing must be done on a hard surface.
