What kind of glass do you use?
All our boards are made with tempered safety glass (also known as toughened glass), which is specially treated to be much stronger than regular glass.
Can these boards be mounted vertically in portrait style?
Yes, the boards are designed to be mounted in either landscape or portrait orientation. Just hang the included template vertically when you mount the board. The attachable marker tray can also be used in either orientation.
What can I use to clean my glass board?
Normal dry-erase markers will easily wipe clean on these boards. Any commercial glass cleaner can also be used to clean the board. Permanent markers can be cleaned by writing over them with a regular dry erase marker and then wiping clean
What kind of dry-erase markers work best with these boards?
For Clear, Frosted, and White Glass Boards, we recommend Expo Bold Dry Erase Markers. They are more vibrant and visible than most normal dry-erase markers. They also are great for kids to make colorful works of art like the one below made on one of our magnetic glass dry-erase boards with Expo Bold markers.
For Black Glass Boards, we recommend Expo Neon Bullet Tip Dry Erase Markers for dry-erase use and Expo Bright Sticks for wet-erase use. Note: It’s very important that any markers you purchase state they are suitable for black surfaces, as some markers designed for white surfaces will not show up on black surfaces.
Do I mount my frosted glass board with the smooth side or the frosted side facing the wall?
The smooth side is the writing surface. You should mount the board with the frosted side facing the wall and the smooth side facing you.
What is the difference between your White and Ultra White boards?
Glass has naturally occurring minerals in it that give it a slight green tinge. Our Ultra White boards undergo a special process that extract these minerals out to give the board a purer white color.
I’d like to use my board as a calendar, chore chart, or for some other planning purpose. Do you have any tips on how to do that?
Yes! There are several ways to use your board like this. If you have a clear or frosted board, you can use document clips or tape to attach documents behind your board and write over them on the glass surface. If you would like to have a permanent chart that will have some information in them change, such as a chore chart or tally chart, use a Sharpie permanent marker to set up your divisions and titles, and then use a regular dry erase marker for the details. When you erase the board, the permanent sections should stay while the dry-erase portions will be erased.
