First it was “black boards”, then “white boards”, and on to “glass writing boards”. Times have come a long way since the chalk and blackboards of school days. Even stylish restaurants are replacing their menu boards with glass writing boards. Florescent “dry erase” is a really big thing now with stylish options. How did dry erase markers become such a big thing, and where did they start? Dry erase markers were actually invented and put on the market (especially formulated for the “Dry Erase Board”) around 1975. Prior to this it was “Wet Erase” markers. The white boards as we know them were invented by Albert Stallion whom worked for a company that manufactured architectural “cladding” in the early 1960’s. White boards and dry erase markers didn’t actually claim immense popularity in such places as “school rooms” until the mid 1990’s. Prior to this they were mostly used in business meetings and other such ventures.
What Are Some of the Features of Glass Writing Boards?
Your standard “dry-erase-white-boards” are a thing of the past and have been replaced with contemporary glass writing boards. No more do you have to deal with stains and other miseries of the old fashion “white boards”. Lets look at a few of the amenities that have made them so popular.
Stylish – Glass writing boards are much more stylish than your standard white boards. They look chic where ever they are presented. Cafes and coffee shops are often using florescent color backing such as bright neon green with a contrasting marker such as hot pink. Black dry erase markers look really good on the neon backings for glass dry erase boards.
Can Be Custom Cut – You can get a glass writing board custom cut to any size you desire. All edges are nicely polished. Glass writing boards are made of “toughened” glass and very durable. You can even get a glass writing board mounted on a pedestal type frame with rolling wheels for easy location changes, such as in an office type presentation room or corporation environment. The glass writing board has taken over for the standard white board in all modern settings, rather it be home or business.
Whose Using Glass Writing Boards?
Besides personal use in the home, many business and other faculties are employing the use of glass writing boards. Glass writing boards are used all over the world and becoming the modern day staple for presentations and visual display. What are some of the environments which have them in use in modern society? You will now find glass writing boards in educational facilities, hospitals, colleges, standard classrooms, and almost any environment which needs to use an instructional aide, or chart, such as the blackboard or white board was used in the past.
