How To Make The Most of A Magnetic Whiteboard

Dry wipe boards are often found in business premises in offices, staff rooms, canteens, meeting rooms and much more besides. They allow for quick and easy presentation and informative displays. Dry wipe boards can be made as a magnetic version and there are numerous advantages of these which I shall talk you through in this short article.

A large magnetic board can prove to be extremely useful in a number of situations including within the home, work place and also in schools and colleges. They can be used just like you would normally use a standard dry wipe board, or a laminated whiteboard by writing information on, but also have the capacity to attach documents using magnets. This makes this multi-use board much more appealing to businesses than your every day laminated board or any other type of notice board for that matter.

All whiteboards work in the same way, you use them with dry erase marker pens and they wipe clean with a dry cloth or board eraser. It is always advised not to keep any markings on the board for a long period of time as this will increase the likely hood of the ink penetrating the surface and staining the board making it harder to rub clean. We would always recommend using a whiteboard cleaning fluid or tissues regularly to keep your board in pristine condition too.

Magnetic dry wipe boards are of a superior grade to the laminated version, and this is reflected in their surface warranty which is generally 10 years under normal use. The highest quality of Cheap Magnetic Whiteboard is called a vitreous enamel steel board, these have excellent durability against scratches and general wear and tear. Although they are the most expensive option, their surface has a 25 year warranty under normal use, so if you are looking to buy whiteboards for your office and want them to last, this is the best option.

If you are purchasing whiteboards and opt for a magnetic version, then you want to make sure you get the most of it, and this will ensure you are getting your money’s worth too! As these boards accept magnets you can use them to attach documents to the wall as well as writing on them. This will benefit you if you have the need for a pin board as well as a whiteboard, because it will enable you to use one board for both purposes. Another popular use for magnetic boards is in planning, whether it be planning a rota or for tactics in sporting activities for example. You can purchase magnetic gridded tape to make tables for rotas or for sports pitch layouts and you can buy assorted coloured magnets to assign to team members or staff on your board.

I hope this has given you some ideas as to how you can make the most of a large magnetic board whatever your reasons for purchasing are!

Kit Out Your Home Office with A Cork Notice Board

Running a business from home can be a difficult task at the best of times. Having the best equipment can go a long way in helping you to make your business a success. Obviously this includes technology first and foremost, but it also helps to be well equipped in all aspects of office supplies. Here I shall talk you through cork notice boards and how they can be used to aid in your success.

When deciding upon a notice board for your home office, you need to consider your options such as how often will the board be used (ie how hard wearing does it need to be), what size wall space you have and what type of finish you require so it fits in with the surrounding decor. Then, the deciding factor more often than not comes down to the cost. A cork notice board can be an excellent choice as it will pretty much tick off every item on your list. They are often the cheapest of notice boards and they are hard wearing due to the nature of the material being self healing. You will also find that a small or large cork notice board can be purchased with a choice of frame finishes to match in with your home office whether it is a traditional wood effect frame that you desire, or a standard aluminium frame to blend in with a contemporary decor.

The material used to make a Cheap Cork Notice Board is harvested from cork oak trees in Europe, this is why manufacturing of these notice boards is usually dealt with in Europe, specifically in Spain and Portugal. However, it is also relatively cost effective to purchase the raw material from these countries and import into the UK to manufacture the boards over here. This makes it possible for many UK run companies to bespoke make cork notice boards. So if you have a smaller or larger than normal notice board requirement you can easily find a UK based company who can provide you with an excellent quality board in your own specific size.

You may wonder what the importance of a notice board has on the running of your business from home. A cork notice board will enable you to make your work station organised, and organisation is key for success of any type of activity. The last thing you need is a cluttered desk and cabinet with important files and paperwork scattered all over the place in an unorganised mess. By mounting a small or large cork notice board on your wall above or next to your desk area you can pin everything up neatly, which not only clears your desk but will also give you access to documents you require frequently in a speedy manner!

An Overview of the Advantages of Using Portable Whiteboards

A free standing or portable whiteboard is the ideal product for use in busy office environments. They have many advantages over wall mounted styles of board if you have the floor space to accommodate them. In this short article I shall talk you through the range available to you and you will see how beneficial they could be to your business!

There are a couple of different options to consider if you are purchasing a Portable Whiteboard. Your options are between small scale boards such as flip chart easels, or large format boards such as freestanding and revolving whiteboards. Here I have given you an overview of each style in the hope that you can decide which would be better suited for your requirements.

Large Format Portable Whiteboards: A Large format portable board would be either a fixed place freestanding board on frame, or a revolving whiteboard. Revolving boards are the most common and most popular. They tend to come in sizes upwards from 120x90cm and the largest boards are generally 180x120cm. This is the size of the whiteboard surface itself. When put together they generally stand as tall as an average man making them ideal for writing on. Revolving whiteboards benefit from being double sided, and some models will have a plain side and a gridded side meaning that you get the best of both worlds when it comes to writing up information. Gridded boards are perfect for keeping your writing to one size and in a straight line, and although they can be seen clearly from up close, the lines are not visible to the audience viewing from a short distance away. If you have the floor space in your offices and meeting rooms then we would definitely recommend going for this option. You have more board space and so your information can be written on neatly without having to struggle to fit your data in, and with the safe knowledge that as you can write big enough you audience can read it without difficulty.

Smaller Portable Whiteboards: If space is restricted but you need a portable whiteboard, then a flipchart easel would be the ideal solution for you. Easels are so light and compact that you could easily transport them in and around the office. They can be used to display flipchart pad lectures as well as featuring the dry wipe back. The only point to consider is that the display area of the board itself is quite small. They tend to be A1 sized or 90x60cm so are better suited to displaying information to smaller audiences or for displaying general staff notices or directions for visitors.

So now you have the basic knowledge of what is available to you, take a look at our site to see our full range of portable whiteboards and you can decide which is going to work for you.

Advantages of Advertising Your Business with External Displays

There are many forms of advertisements for businesses, ranging from flyers and leaflets, to pavement signs and advertisements in newspapers and magazines. In this article I shall focus on the external displays which are the perfect product to draw customers in from the street. Read on to find out more about how they can benefit your business and what options are available to you.

External Notice Boards are an excellent way of bringing in the customers to retail businesses such as shops, cafes and restaurants. If your poster displays in these notice boards are eye catching enough then they will be sure to encourage customers into your business. Designs with bold colours and simple, clear messages work best to grab attention to your products, services or promotions. Although External Notice Boards are the ideal tool for advertising products and services for retail businesses, they are also the preferred product for restaurants and bars as they are ideal for displaying menus. You will find products on the market which are designed specifically for these businesses as they have the addition of LED illumination meaning that customers can view menus late at night easily enough.

There are other forms of advertising externally such as pavement signs, but one advantage of wall mounted notice boards over pavement signs is that when ground space is minimal you are still able to display your posters etc. Some areas are limited by their local councils as to the size of pavement signs they are able to use, or even if they are allowed to display them at all. But you will find that nearly all buildings will have room and capability to display wall mounted notice boards.

When deciding on what type of external display to purchase you need to consider where it will be placed, what size you need, and if you are wanting to add any extras such as printed business names or illumination etc. Your basic external boards are silver framed cases with polycarbonate doors and some form of locking mechanisms. They are generally weather proofed at the top of the doors with a shield to enable rain to run off the case rather than leak into it. Some styles also are designed to sit off the wall to prevent rain for penetrating the back panels and getting inside to the display. We are able to provide a bespoke service for notice boards where we can make them to any custom size, colour and have a variety of styles to choose from too. You can choose from wall mounted boards, rail mounted boars and freestanding notice boards as well. Check out our website for more information and pricing.

How A4 Size Whiteboards Can Be Effectively Used At Home

A4 white boards are commonly found in class rooms as they make for an excellent tool to teach with. Their uses are not necessarily stretched to the class room though, as I will now attempt to explain to you in his short article.

Home Learning: Due to the nature of these dry wipe boards being a teaching tool, there is no reason why they cannot be taken further and used at home to encourage further learning. There is no greater sense of achievement than knowing that you have helped your child along with their studies at home. So often it is left to schools to teach, and parents are hardly involved at all. But by keeping a simple yet effective tool such as an A4 whiteboard at home you can continue to help your child develop no matter their age by practising the same techniques they participate in at school.

Play time: If you buy packs of several of these dry wipe boards for using to help your child study, then you can easily find other uses for them at home other than for studying and doing homework. Hand held dry wipe boards are excellent for play time. If you have small children you are bound to have found yourself in the situation where they have had enough with playing with their toys and so are now looking to you, the parent, for something else equally as fun to do. But in bad weather conditions, or days when you have too much to get on with yourself to take the outside, this can prove difficult to think of an activity to pass the time away.

A4 sized whiteboards are the perfect product to bring out at this point for playing classic games such as Hangman, noughts and crosses or a family favourite – Pictionary. Sure, you could use paper ad pens here, but paper would just be wasted ad thrown away after the game has finished, whereas the dry wipe board can simply be wiped clean to start again. They could even be used for drawing to pass the time away. An A4 Whiteboard is also the perfect accompaniment for long car journeys with children. Again, they can be used for games or drawing and the size of them makes them ideal to write on sitting down in a car or coach.

Practical Home Use: Away from use with children for learning and playing, a4 size whiteboards can also be a godsend to help in the organisation of your home. They are perfect for keeping shopping lists and leaving telephone messages for family members.

Do take a look at our website where you can find these small dry wipe boards. We sell them in smaller pack quantities making them more accessible for home use, ad they still come complete with pens and erasers.

Cork Notice Boards – More Than Just an Office Essential

Pin boards are used daily in offices, and this is often where they are associated with being used. But thinking outside of the box, you can discover that a pin board such as a cork notice board can be used in other ways. Read on to find out their potential uses and the environments they can be used in that you may not have thought about before.

The material used to make a large cork notice board is harvested from cork oak trees in Europe, so you will find that the origin of many cork notice boards on the market in the UK is actually European, in particular they come from Spain and Portugal. In these countries, oak trees are protected by environmental laws which help sustain the trees and ensure we will never run out of this useful material. Cork is protected this well because it is an environmentally friendly material.

Cork notice boards are ideal for use within offices, other workplaces and educational establishments. As the cork material is self-healing, as soon as your pins are removed from your cork notice board, the material will instantly heal over the pin hole making it a durable display solution. Away from offices, large cork boards can be used in staff quarters of businesses such as staff rooms and canteens. They are the ideal choice of pin board to use as they are neutral so will match any existing colour scheme. They would be ideal in this environment for displaying general notices, staff training dates, event notices and rotas to name a few examples.

An often overlooked use for cork notice boards is at home. To keep your social life oragnised without any form of notice board could prove to be difficult, especially at those busy times of year like Christmas when there are parties to attend, and in the summer where you may have many wedding invites and summer barbeques for example. Keeping track of them on a calendar along with all other commitments would make your calendar look untidy and wouldn’t read very easily either, whereas using a pin board to pin the invites and doctor appointment cards on makes life a lot more easily.

If using a large cork noticeboard at home, why not also consider them for use in your children’s bedrooms or studies. In a home office they can be used the same as you would in a business premises. If you mount one of them on the wall in your child’s room then it will not only allow them to keep organised themselves, but they can also use them to pin posters to rather than pinning them, or using blu-tak to stick them to your wall which is bound to peel away paint of left over a long period of time.

Small A4 sized whiteboards have become a classroom essential in recent years. They are available in a large range of styles from the basic plain board to printed boards which are subject specific. Read on to find out more and how they can be used to make learning fun.

It can prove difficult for teachers to keep the attention of their pupils sometimes, especially the younger generation who can make teaching a difficult task every day! One proved method of keeping your students attention in the classroom would be to make your lessons interactive.

There are printed versions available, of which you will find one for almost every subject. For example, science lessons can be made interesting using a periodic table board where the table is printed ready for your students to fill in the chemical elements in their right place, or a human body board where the outlines of human bodies are printed ready for students to identify different body parts. Many boards like the human body board can also be used over a number of different subjects, for example this particular product can be used in language lessons such as German or French to identify parts of body in another language.

Mini Whiteboards tend to come in either packs of 35 or 100, so they are perfect for a single class or for sharing amongst a few classes, or keeping spares! They are all supplied with the same number of pens and erasers so you can allow each child to have their own set for the duration of the class.

This will encourage good team work whilst still learning and having fun.

As well as the pupils having fun learning with these cheap mini whiteboards, they are also massively beneficial to the teacher. The concept of asking pupils a questions and getting them to write it down and show you when they have the answer allows you to check who gets the answer right, but also who in the class takes that little bit longer to answer.

Hints and Tips on Ordering Whiteboards from Online Retailers

Anyone can purchase a whiteboard, but as most whiteboards are purchased via online companies such as ourselves, there are several tips I can advise you to make sure you experience a smooth transaction upon ordering and delivery and then ensuring you make the most of your whiteboard and its lifespan.

There are many online retailers who have a large variety of whiteboards for sale, but how do you know who is a trusted supplier that you can have faith in purchasing from? Well, always remember to check their website testimonials for any past feedback for a start. Genite has years of experience in point of sale products and we pride ourselves on our customer service which is reflected in our testimonials. We have an excellent range of whiteboards for sale ranging from the basic laminated boards, to Vitreous Enamel Steel boards and we supply public and trade, as well as government bodies such as schools, colleges and hospitals.

When you order whiteboards, always ensure that you have selected the right size for you, as many online companies will charge a re-stocking fee or at the least expect you to pay for the return if you order the wrong item in error, so be sure to measure up the height and width of your available wall space carefully. It is then important to remember that courier companies generally only deliver on weekdays and so make sure you are entering a delivery address where you know someone will be in to accept delivery during the week and during working hours. There may be additional charges for re-attempting deliveries or to upgrade to a Saturday delivery service, or you could opt to have your goods left in a secure area but be warned that you will not be covered in cases of damage or theft of the item.

When signing for your whiteboards, you should always remember to check the goods 1st, especially if the packaging appears to be a little torn or out of shape. Delivery drivers will let you open the goods to check them before you sign, and if there ever happens to be any damage to the goods then you have the choice to either refuse the delivery or accept whilst signing for them as Damaged. It is important that whichever option you choose, you contact the seller to advise them of the damage straight away.

To ensure you get the very best performance from your whiteboards, you must ensure they are treated with care and you only use dry wipe marker pens on the surface. Try not to leave writing on the whiteboards for too long before wiping clean with a dry eraser, and ensure you clean the whiteboard with an approved cleaning fluid on a regular basis to keep the surface in good condition. If you follow all of these tips you are sure to get the very best service and performance from your whiteboards.

Use For Freestanding Whiteboards at office

If you have a large meeting room or office space which is in need of a presentation tool, then you should look to buy large whiteboards. Many offices and meeting rooms will have enough space for a wall mounted style, but there is more to whiteboards than meets the eye… why not look into freestanding whiteboards? Here I shall explain all you need to know about them and how they can be used to their full potential.

If you buy large whiteboards already you will be familiar with how useful they can be around the office, but if you are new to this then you may be interested to find out what their benefits are in and around the workplace. Sure, a small board is a handy item to have as an individual’s notice board, but when you need to display information in large offices and meeting rooms to a large number of people at varying distances, then a large board will do the job much better ensuring that people furthest away from the whiteboard can see just as well as those right next to it, and allowing you to present a lot more information without struggling to fit it all on the board!

Freestanding Whiteboards

Freestanding Whiteboards

Larger dry wipe boards tend to be used for presenting information in lectures and meetings, and so this is not always practical for them to be fixed on a wall. This is where Freestanding Whiteboards come into action as they enable portable presentation. This means you can easily wheel your whiteboards between and around meeting rooms, and from meeting room to office and vice versa with little hassle at all. Revolving styles are the most common form of freestanding whiteboard. They are double sided and can be purchased in magnetic or laminated (non-magnetic) surfaces. You will also find that most revolving boards have at least one side which is gridded, this enables you to write in straight lines or gives you a guideline for drawing up tables. Gridded lines on boards tend to be 25cm square and are very feint, so that whoever is writing on the board will see the lines to follow, but those looking at the board from a distance will not be able to see it. Revolving boards can also be found with pin board surfaces and clips to attach flipchart pads onto them also, giving you a full range of display options! Most styles of revolving board will revolve in 1 direction only, but we supply one which gives you the option of revolving either horizontally or vertically.

There are other types of freestanding whiteboard available on the market, for example flipchart easels tend to have a dry wipe surface on but are generally A1 sized, so quite a lot smaller than those which revolve. You may be surprised by the options out there, so why not look into purchasing freestanding dry wipe boards for your workplace today.

Tamperproof Notice Boards Use For Your Business

There are numerous different styles of notice boards, and depending on where you are displaying them and what you are displaying will determine what style is most suited to you. In this short article I shall give you a brief overview of tamperproof display options and where they are best suited.

Tamperproof Notice Boards are basically as the name depicts; they are poster display cases with locking doors which prevent your information being tampered with. The style of board and locking mechanisms vary greatly across the range of tamperproof boards, but all will prevent your information from being easily accessible which is often the issue with open notice boards.

The common features of your every day lockable display cases are polycarbonate glazed doors, and some sort of locking mechanism. Polycarbonate is used more widely than glass for obvious health and safety reasons, polycarbonate is a tough and secure material which will not shatter like glass if broken. When it comes to the locking mechanisms used in these notice boards, they vary from a basic single allen key lock, to a more secure key lock. You will generally find that the smaller sized boards are made with a single door and single locking mechanism, whereas the larger boards are made with two doors and two locks for added security and stability as well as making it safer and easier to change your poster displays.

tamperproof notice boardsTamperproof notice boards are often used in schools and other public buildings so that general information can be kept safe and secure from vandalism and general wear and tear. They are especially useful in corridors where open notice boards could easily lead to information being ripped as people walk past frequently; ie in school corridors. As many of these boards tend to be used in public buildings, most manufacturers offer them in 2 grades of fire resistance. The basic Class 1 fire retardant notice boards are ideal for use in rooms and offices in public buildings as these meet the legal requirements for this location. When display cases are used in corridor you will need to choose Class 0 fire retardant boards which are required by law in these areas as they have a higher and longer resistance to flames making fire escape routes safer in the event of a fire.

Another obvious use for tamperproof notice boards would be for outside retail properties etc. You will need to check with the manufacturer if they are suitable first. Most basic tamperproof boards are only suitable for use inside, so you need to check that they are also weather resistant before you place them outside.

I hope this has improved your knowledge on the subject and will help you make an informed decision when purchasing tamperproof displays for your business.

Considerations When Choosing Whiteboards

With such a variety to choose from, making the decision on what type of whiteboards to purchase for your workplace can prove difficult. Here I shall talk you through what you need to consider when making your decision.

Size is probably the biggest consideration when deciding upon what whiteboard to purchase. If you are purchasing whiteboards for a classroom or meeting room then you will probably have a wide wall space to cover and so a Large Whiteboard will be required. When I talk about a large whiteboard, these tend to be anywhere from 150x120cm upwards to 240x120cm. But if purchasing whiteboards for your home or offices then you may be more limited in wall space and so smaller sizes may be your best option. Whiteboards can generally be found in set board sizes of 60x45cm and upwards. But if you need to fill a particular sized space exactly, then a bespoke service may serve you better. Most good online companies will offer this service, albeit at a higher charge for obvious reasons.

Another important consideration is the surface options. The basic whiteboard has a laminate surface. If all you require is a cheap board to write on and nothing more, then this is what you should go for, but be aware that most laminated whiteboards only come with a 5 year surface warranty under normal use. If you are after a more versatile whiteboard that will also accept magnets then you will be looking at either a Magnetic (coated steel) whiteboard, or a vitreous enamel steel dry wipe board. The Magnetic boards usually come with a 10 year surface warranty under normal use, and the vitreous enamel steel whiteboards usually come with a 25 year surface warranty as they are much more hard wearing. So, if ordering for a school for example, then vitreous enamel steel may be worth spending the extra money on to ensure they last a longer time when they are sure to be used often and on a daily basis.

large whiteboards

Finally, you should consider frame options and mobility of the whiteboards. If you need them to be mobile, then you can purchase mobile and/or revolving whiteboards which are double sided and can be moved around the room and from room to room. If not, then a basic wall mounted style would suit. All whiteboards will come with wall fixing kits, and many also come with pen trays which attach to the bottom of the whiteboard on the frame to hold your dry wipe marker pens. When it comes to frame options, the most common (and cheapest) is the aluminium finish, but you will find that other options are available such as colourful frames, black frames, and wooden effect or real wood frames.

I hope this has given you a good insight into the options available to you and will help in your decision making!

Poster Snap Frames Options

Of the many ways of advertising or presenting poster displays, snap frames remain the most popular as they are so versatile. Read on to learn all you need to know about them and what options are available on the market today.

Types of Frame: There is a wide choice of frame finishes and sizes available on the market today. The most popular is the 25mm profile (thickness of the frame) satin silver anodised frame. As these are the most popular they are made as stock sizes in bulk making them the cheap Snap Frames compared to others on the market.  This is the standard profile for all the average poster sizes, which range from A4 up to A1. If you were looking to purchase A5 or smaller then you would be find thinner profile frames of 15mm, and on the other end of the spectrum, you would find larger profile snap frames (normally 30 or 32mm) for the larger poster frames of A0 and over. There are two main reasons for the difference in thickness of frame; one being that the larger frames make the overall product look more in perspective when displaying larger posters, and vice versa with the smaller frames, and the other reason being that the larger frames are better supported with thicker frames.

Most businesses will agree that silver anodised finishes to point of sale items, such as cheap snap frames, are appropriate because they will be sure to fit in with any existing colour scheme and they look neat, clean and professional.  However, if satin silver is not your colour of choice but you do not wish to spend a fortune on the bespoke service I shall explain next, then you can readily find the most common poster sizes available with black frames as opposed to silver.

Bespoke Service: So, you already know about the most common of Snap Fames and your ‘from stock’ options. But if you would prefer to keep all promotional and/or information displays in keeping with your existing colour scheme, then you can choose to powder coat the frame to match in any RAL colour of your choice. There are restrictions and conditions for this service, such as minimum order quantities, but if you are ordering in bulk to fit out new offices or shop premises then this is the ideal service for you. Other bespoke services include making poster frames to order in any size you require. Obviously the standard sizes are measured in the standard poster sizes which range from A5 up to A0, but many people will be faced with the issue of having maps, promotional materials or certificates that need to be displayed which fall out of these standard sizes. This is where the bespoke size service is really helpful.

I hope this has given you a good insight into your options available, and will help in your decision when purchasing your snap frames.
