Brilliant Concept for a Cheap Portable Whiteboard
I have been looking for a nice whiteboard for my home office for a while now. You know, a nice big one like I have in my office at work. Well, unlike the megacorp that I work for, I have a very meager budget. So, needless to say, I have been putting it off.
I came across this article on TechCrunch about a product called WhiteyBoard.com and was very excited. They make a giant sticker that is the skin of a whiteboard. You can peel and stick it anywhere, then reuse it. The best part is, it’s DIRT CHEAP! (Kinda like me.)
Here is how they describe their product:
WhiteyBoard was born in 2010 to attack one major problem; Heavy, Expensive Dry Erase Boards. With our team of chemists, we can up with an ultra inexpensive white board that sticks on to any wall, weighs less than 2 pounds and gets you working in seconds. No installation, no heavy lifting, no breaking the bank. WhiteyBoard is already being used in hundreds of offices, classrooms, and kids rooms around the US. Try one out today.
There are three sizes of WhiteyBoard available: Sonia, Alice, and Bertha. I got the big one, which I will probably cut into a few small pieces.
It works pretty easily. Just peel the backing off like a sticker and apply it to any flat surface. When you’re done, just gently peel it off the surface and back onto the sticker backing. Then, roll it up and stow it away.
I really like it so far and would recommend picking one up if you are in a similar situation to me.
I could see sticking it to a piece of foam core and having a super-light, portable board that you can slide behind a piece of furniture to get it out of your way. Another idea would be to stick it to something metal, like the side of a refridgerator or file cabinet and you’ll have a magnetic whiteboard / bulletin board.
