Is it difficult to remove a WhiteyBoard?
It is advised in the event that WhiteyBoard will be removed that it is done so very carefully and slowly. Our adhesive is designed to come off surfaces without leaving residue.
Can I cut it?
Yes. WhiteyBoarders can simply customize their Sonia (12"x18"), Alice (2'x3'), or Bertha (3.3'x6') with household scissors or an X-acto knife. Customers have cut our whiteyboards to fit onto the back of laptops or their hand phones.
Does it stick to textured surfaces?
Yes, WhiteyBoards adhere to an array of surfaces including textured walls, unfinished wood, fabric cube walls, glass, plywood, concrete, and most other hard synthetic surfaces. WhiteyBoarders should keep in mind that smoother surfaces mean smoother WhiteyBoards.
What are WhiteyBoards made of?
Mostly plastic. They are made of a vinyl peel-and-stick material that is durable, washable, movable, and removable.
What is the easiest way to put WhiteyBoard on the wall?
Though one person can easily apply Sonia (12"x18"), it is best to apply Alice (2'x3') and Bertha (3.3'x6') with two people - one person sticks while the other smoothes.
How can I prevent air bubbles?
Customers can push out wrinkles or bubbles that may appear during application with a dry cloth by rubbing in a circular motion toward the edges.
What do you write on them with?
As with regular whiteboards, dry-erase markers work best (Expo-Markers). For a semi-permanent effect, Vis-a-Vis markers can also be used, though they require water to erase. Do not use permanent markers.
What can I use to erase my WhiteyBoard?
Though dry-erasers work best, a cloth, rag, or paper towel can clean the surface well, too. For a more thorough cleaning, we suggest using cleaning wipes or a liquid solution (Expo-liquid Solution), then wiping the surface dry with a cloth.
Can I use it in one spot, take it down, and move it to another?
Yes, WhiteyBoards are portable. We have specifically designed them to peel off so that they can be easily transferred to multiple surfaces.
How many times can you remove it and re-stick it before it loses its stickiness?
WhiteyBoards can be re-applied five times on average before the adhesive compounds begin to lose their strength.
What is the life expectancy of WhiteyBoard?
If the customer keeps his or her sheet within those five surface re-applications, it can last up to five years.
Are WhiteyBoards transparent in color?
Like other whiteboards, WhiteyBoards are white.
Are WhiteyBoards magnetic?
No, they are not magnetic. Magnetic strips may be applied to the adhesive side (before removing the protective cover) if the user desires a magnetized effect for a refrigerator or filing cabinet.
How long does it take to ship?
We pride ourselves in our prompt customer service and ship most orders the following day.
How long will delivery take since time placed order?
Our customers should expect their product to arrive from one to two weeks of placing their order. (This varies for international shipping, though.)
What about traditional chalkboards and whiteboards?
WhiteyBoards love showing up their more expensive counterparts and can be effortlessly adhered to a traditional chalkboard or whiteboard.
Are they child safe?
WhiteyBoards are actually child encouraged. Put one in your child's room and watch them draw away!
Do you offer quantity discounts to business and school?
Yes, please email Colm@whiteyboard.co.uk
Upon applying Bertha, Alice, or Sonia onto a wall within air conditioning spaces have any adverse effects?
Possibly. The cold air may mitigate the WhiteyBoard's adhesiveness by causing the edges to curl up.
