When choosing a whiteboard product there are a lot of things to consider.
You need to choose your colour, the whiteboard surface size and the accessories but an important part of the process is finding out if that product ghosts or not.
Read below and we’ll give you more detail on what ghosting is, what to look out for and why we suggest using Dry Erase Wallcoverings over other whiteboard products.
So, What Is Ghosting?
Ghosting is when the surface of a whiteboard or whiteboard wall won’t fully erase, leaving behind the ‘ghost’ of the original image, which can make your whiteboard look dirty or make it hard to read.
Why Should This Concern Me?
Not only do surfaces that ghost look dirty but they can also impact the way you work.
It can be harder to get a big picture of your work if the remnants of the previous day’s work, makes your new writing less clear.
If left untreated this could result in your whiteboard or whiteboard wall becoming non -usable over time.
But What Causes Ghosting?
There are a number of things that can cause your surface to ghost.
Some types of whiteboards are more susceptible to ghosting than other brands
- Using low quality or cheap whiteboards
- Heavy use of low quality whiteboards
- Leaving marks on a whiteboard for extended periods
- Erasing markers while they are still wet
