We will not sell
plastic mats, paddles, "sheet protectors", or panelboards as dry
erase boards. Most other people sell semi-porous plastic
surfaces as dry erase boards. Semi-porous surfaces will
permanently stain over time.
We only sell real non-porous
dry erase boards. We
guarantee in writing that our surfaces will never permanently
stain. Even if written on with a permanent marker we can tell
you how to remove it without hurting the board.
We do have a
problem though. Surveys show that nationally only about 40% of
educators know about us, meaning 60% of you do
not personally know about us. Even though many districts and
schools order from us almost 2 out of 3 educators don't know we
exist. Sometimes we feel like we are hiding in plain sight.
We have been ranked the #1 site for dry erase boards and
accessories by Google, Yahoo, etc. We exhibit at the major
educational conventions. We have been in business for
almost 40 years serving American schools and companies from our
Michigan Factory. We do regular mailing too. Still many of you
don't know we exist.
