Choosing A Whiteboard

Posted by

Step 1.
Select your whiteboard surface. Surface type determines the usage a whiteboard can withstand, the maintenance it will require and its overall lifespan.

DuraMax® Porcelain – Heavy use and abuse in public spaces, very little maintenance

Total Erase® – Moderate use in mid size office spaces, occasional maintenance

Melamine – Light use in a cubicle or home environment, regular maintenance

Step 2.
Choose the type of whiteboard you need. Consider the purpose the board will have in your space so that you can chose a board that will truly be useful.

Traditional Whiteboard – Versatile, clear surface for jotting down notes & collaborating

Traditional Whiteboard with Grid – Subtle grid pattern on whiteboard surface guides handwriting

Customizable – Create your own surface with graphics or charts to track information

Calendar & Planner – Simplify organization & facilitate communication

Step 3.
Select a board size. Is the whiteboard going to be used by many or just a few? How big is the wall you plan to mount it on? Picking the right size from the start can help you not overspend.

8’ x 4’ – For large group use

6’ x 4’ – For mid size group use

4’ x 3’ – For small group use

3’ x 2’ – For personalized use

Step 4.
Choose a frame color. The décor and color schemes of offices vary and you want to pick a frame color that will help your whiteboard blend in. You also want the board to convey an appropriate tone.

Mahogany, Maple or Light Cherry – warm and professional

Aluminum – modern and upscale

Graphite – durable and discreet

Frameless – relaxed and versatile

Euro™ Titanium – sleek and sophisticated
