Out of the box:
- I did not have any problem with the paper being creased like a previous poster. I had to cut off the last 3 or 4 inches (maybe).
- I found laying out the paper flat and holding it down with some books for a day helped to manage it better.
- Not too bad, but two people would have been really nice. It was a struggle with just me.
- Ended up with a few minor lines where the paper creased as I was applying, but nothing major.
- Getting the bubbles out was the hardest part. Again- would have been much better with two people
- I've had no problems with peeling (1 month later)
- I do have little bubbles show up, especially when it's been raining or humid. I just press them out with my hand or a flat object. Sometimes I just ignore them. Really not a problem.
- Wish I new how easily this will be removed and reapplied. I won't be trying that until June.
- Markers show up very well (I use expo brand)
- Erasing in decent, but not perfect. Most things erase without ghosting, especially if they have not been up for long. I keep a bottle of rubbing alcohol on hand to clean the board at then end of every week and remove bits of ghosting. This also cleans the board of any sticky smudges etc.Read more ›
1. Packaged with wrinkles - inspect product BEFORE removing the paper backing.
2. Tends to wrinkle during application & wrinkles are tough to remove (there are ways to minimize wrinkles - see below)
3. Sticks to everything & when removed, can leave some spots of adhesive, which then show up as bumps when re-positioning & re-covering. So, better get it right the first time.
4. Markers don't erase cleanly unless you follow with alcohol or cleaner. Real white boards need only an eraser to remove the marker.
Here's what hubby & I learned from applying this to our old white board:
The key to avoiding wrinkles is 2-part: the surface to be covered must be clean & smooth, and the application must apply the roll smoothly, with no removal & repositioning of the white board roll.
BEFORE removing paper backing, roll out & inspect. (Remember, measure 2x, cut 1x!) Cut out any badly wrinkled sections. The roll may be cut unevenly, so cut lengths such that you overlap all edges about a quarter inch - don't rely on the package edge being straight. (The overlap is "wiggle" room in case you're still off somehow.
Once cut, roll the sections back up; NOT in reverse (it will not flatten the edges or prevent curling, only a clean dry smooth surface will). Take a section & position it. Check & re-check the edges to insure they are straight. Peel the backing off about an inch & smooth it onto the surface. Use PLASTIC paint scrapers, NOT metal, to smooth out bubbles & finish smoothing the surface. (A squeegee may work too. But ours seemed to make wrinkles or didn't remove the ones already there.Read more ›
Here are some general observations and tips:
- use 2 people to apply
- if you are cutting it and then placing the two sheets one above the other to create a 48" board, put the bottom one on first so that the top one's edge is on top of the bottom's top edge. Prevents peeling and other problems
- use black marker as your primary. It seems to erase better than the colors
- clean it every day with the expo white board cleaning solution to prevent any residue build up. It cleans up any ghosting
- adhesive is completely removable
It's not perfect in that there is some residue when erase between classes, but you'll get that with expensive white boards after a year. Not a big deal at all. Overall, this is a great solution to the problem for the price.
1. Prep your wall. Ours didnt come with any instructions, so we guessed the first time and failed. Second time around, we decided to sand the wall in our classroom. We just took a fine grit sand paper and went to town all over the wall, even in the surrounding area where we knew we weren't going to place the dry-erase. This knocked down any bumps or "needles" on the surface that puncture through the paper. After we cleaned the wall with a wet towel to get all the dust off and let to dry over night.
2. We were making a 10'x20' board area, so we had to cut the length. We measure on the wall where the starting point would be and made a level line to attempt to follow. Then we removed all of the paper backing once, and while my husband held one held, I placed the paper onto the wall, starting at the top corner and working to the bottom corner pressing it down with great force the entire way. Working from the top to the bottom right side of the paper to the left, we adhered the paper to the wall. We made sure we went very slowly to ensure no bubles formed. Once the paper made contact with the wall it lost its ability to re-adhere properly.
3. Once we had it in place we used a combination of hand pressure, towel wrapped piece of scrap wood and credit cards to secure the paper to the wall. Then with an EXACTO knife and a straight edge, we made the board square and true. Nailed some molding around it and done!!!

I purchased this to make signs for work. It does not adhere to the surface and tend to buckle and pucker. It looks terrible and gets worse over time.Published 6 days ago by K. Carlson
edges and corners peel up within hours of application, but when removing the stuff, the center tears leaves scraps behind that have to be removed with a razor blade. Read morePublished 20 days ago by Bob Perye - Rogue Estate BBQ

did not stick to the surface we needed to use it for to well, but I imagine if you are placing on a clean wall it may last a littler longer than ours did.Published 25 days ago by amy Kerns
