Client testimonials

I have been consistently impressed by Flatlay Studio's impressive range of boards. I may have started a slight obsession with them! The boards are the best quality on the market, and have not only improved the way my products look in photographs, but make me excited every time I use them!

This flat lay was one of my BEST purchases of the year.

Absolutely love it. Now I don't have to take scrap booking 12×12" papers and struggle with shoots. Even if this was the smallest board you have [Compact], it's still big!

A great bang for your buck 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻

Would just like to say how thrilled I am with my Flatlay Studio boards custom-made for my lightbox.

Wendy's help was great and the delivery was quick and efficient.

I look forward to buying more!!


We have a carefully curated range of food styling and lifestyle styling props ideal for food photographers, bloggers and influencers.
