Explore a range of common questions and concerns regarding our innovative products designed to improve the way you work, learn, and play.
Is there any prep involved?
If the surface is textured we recommend lightly sanding to as smooth a finish as possible. Please ensure the surface has had adequate dry time (approx. 30 days). Lightly misting the surface or adhesive backside prior to installation may be helpful in the eventuality of air bubbles.
How many people are needed to install?
For any size above 600 x 900mm we recommend at least 2 installers.
3 people may be necessary to install the largest sizes.
Can I install a WriteyBoard over wood?
Yes, please note that if the wood is unfinished the adhesive will not stick at all! If the wood is unfinished it is recommended to apply a primer (gloss if possible) to seal the wood before installing your Writeyboard.
Can I install a WriteyBoard over glass?
Yes, with this kind of installation we recommend liberally misting the surface with a spray cleaner.
Can I install a WriteyBoard over metal?
Yes, provided it is smooth. The metal will also retain most of its magnetism.
Are they Magnetic?
They themselves are not magnetic, however if placed over a magnetic surface the strength of the magnetism would only be moderately affected.
How do I get rid of air bubbles?
Be sure to mist the area with spray cleaner and then use the provided squeegee or rag/towel to squeeze the air out towards the edge. The liquid helps slide the air out.
How do I remove my WriteyBoard?
Please ensure painted surfaces have had adequate dry time (approx. 30 days). With the use of a hairdryer, heat the WriteyBoard to excite the adhesive to allow for easier release from the substrate. Slowly peel away from surface avoiding ripping or tugging abruptly as this may cause surface damage.
Can I take it down and put it up somewhere else?
The Classic stick-on whiteboards should be thought of as a semi-permanent solution that should only be removed under certain circumstances such as moving out of a current location. Our Premium Re-Stickable whiteboards are the only whiteboards that are removable & reusable for multiple applications.
Can the Premium WriteyBoard be taken down and transported?
Yes, the best way to do this is to place it on the original backing material that was peeled away before applying. If this is not available wax paper or baking paper (non stick) is a suitable substitute.
Will removal cause surface damage?
The adhesive is designed to peel away clean without ripping paint or leaving behind sticky residue. However, due to our inability to predict the structural integrity of individual surfaces we cannot guarantee that removal will not result in damage. Since each installation is subjective we cannot guarantee the outcome and recommend testing in an inconspicuous area prior to application.
What should I write with?
Any variety of dry-erase/whiteboard markers can be used.
