What Type of Whiteboard Should I Buy?

Whiteboards are a must in every office, but they can also be extremely useful in other environments such as schools, universities or even at exhibitions and presentations. They are a brilliant tool for educating and explaining.

There are many different types of whiteboard out there, each specially designed with particular features to help you get your point across. Let's take a quick look at the differences and pro points of each:

Non-Magnetic, Dry-Wipe Whiteboards

These standard, easy-clean whiteboards have many applications, and no educational facility or office should be without one. They look smart, are a very eco-friendly option, and you never have to worry about that ‘pen ghosting' problem as they wipe clean in an instant.

Magnetic, Dry-Wipe Whiteboards

Similar to the previous type, these whiteboards have the added advantage of a magnetic surface. This means you can use magnetic pins and tape to brighten up a lesson or presentation.

 Combination Whiteboards

If you need more of a public display than a presentation tool, this half'n'half whiteboard option is more than up to the job. Choose between fabric, felt or cork to compliment your whiteboard half.

Printed Surface Whiteboards

Yes, completely customisable whiteboards. These whiteboards are a real-time-saver, as the music lines/grid/graph/calendar is already printed on for you. Printed directly into the laminate so the surface of the whiteboards remains smooth with no bevels if it were a cutout print. Whatever and wherever you need your whiteboard to go, we can custom print a standard or bespoke design onto any size board needed.

Mobile Whiteboards

These are perfect for presentations and classroom settings. Easy to set up and lockable, they also have a heavy, solid base for extra stability (so you can write on them confidently). Simply unlock the feet and wheel away into storage when not in use. Usually double-sided to allow for extra display space.

Freestanding Whiteboards

Brilliant for exhibitions and presentations as they compliment your other display materials. Easy to set up and lockable, they have a heavy, solid base for extra stability (so you can write on them confidently).

Need help with your Whiteboard?

Why not use our in-house design team to help you make the most out of your Whiteboard.

Our designers will work with you to create a professional design to your exact specifications. You can be as involved in the design process as you want to be, either working side by side with our designers or giving them your design brief.

Unlike some other companies, we want to offer value for money, so we ensure that you are only charged for the actual time taken to create your design (minimum 15-minute intervals). Formatting a quick layout may be free of charge where all logos and text are readily supplied.
