Choosing your Glass Whiteboard

Choosing a glass whiteboard can be tricky; there are tons of companies to choose from, different kinds of boards, styles, and sizes. Where would you even begin? Choosing your best board starts with researching, figuring out your company or family needs and comparing your options. Here are just a few ways to look for the best board for your home or office:

Research – Start by figuring out what kinds of boards are available. You may be surprised with the options you have. You can get anything from a ceiling to floor black back-painted glassboard all the way to a decorative glass table or counter top, to a frosted standard sized board. You can even go all out and opt for a magnetic glassboard or an interactive glassboard. Find out every combination of options and features are available before assessing what will be best for your home or office.

What are your needs? – This is the most important process in deciding where to spend your money. What kind of board do you need? What would you consider necessities versus wants? Budget plays an important role in this decision, if we could all have the top of the line everything, we would. /Unfortunately personal budgets and even corporate budgets don’t work that way and deciding what to spend your money on is key. If you’re evaluating glassboards, here are just some of the things you need to consider:

  • What color am I looking for? If you have a hip, trendy office with masterful branding, you may want to go with a custom logo-colored board that gives your office a pop and helps with your branding efforts. You can find custom colored boards at most retailers, but you’ll need to be smart about pricing. Some companies offer free or reduced custom backpainting, whereas others can cost you an arm and a leg. If you’re looking for a board for the home, you may be more interested in the clear glass whiteboard, which virtually vanishes when not in use.
  • What size would fit our needs? Buying a huge board can be a great idea for interior design offices, engineering and architecture firms and classrooms. They’re great for people who often fill up an average sized board in a matter of minutes. If you’re a smaller company with simpler needs; like monthly meetings or using your board for scheduling only, you shouldn’t need to spend nearly the same amount on a quality board.
