    Hey, I grew up in Langhorne!

    Signs365 sells dry erase vinyl. Just design the check and order the print from them and apply it to some lightweight plastic substrate.

    Anti graffiti lam works the same. Or pretty much any polyester laminate.
    Just as long as they use whiteboard markers.

    I've always wondered how dry erase board vinyl was different than every laminate ever. Do they put something special in the material? I've also wondered why they make 'chalkboard' vinyl when you can print black and laminate with matte...

    I'm pretty sure that all graffiti lam is polyester. Maybe it has tighter pores or something or it just holds up better to harsh chemical cleaning, acetone, lacquer thinner etc ?
    Our shop board is regular cal lam, it doesn't seem to clean as easy and we have to hit it with brake cleaner every so often. It does work though.

    Harbor Sales sells Dry Erase laminate. I wind up using it for a bunch of things. It's made by R-tape and works fine. Use only EXPO Low-Odor Dry Erase markers. Anything else will leave their mark!
    Good luck!

    I would recommend putting on 3 mil PVC because they obviously want to reuse and foamcore is not that sturdy.

    Our dry erase is generally applied as a UV coating. It's "Rolled" on. Pretty cool process.

    Vis-à-Vis - Expo® markers is what we have found to be the better marker for dry - erase
    make sure they use OEM cleaning solutions on the surface

    Why didn't I know this?
    I have been buying chalkboard vinyl and trying to UV print white on it. Not very successful. I could have just printed and lamed with matte vinyl. Ugh, I feel so stupid.

    its not the same laminate as every laminate ever, but its close..... while you can most likely make misc. overlaminates "work", a glossy Polypropylene/polyester film has the best properties to not allowing dryerase markers to bind/absorb into/onto the surface.

    Also prepainted aluminum makes a mighty fine dry erase surface. Now that I think about it, I'm gonna go try to chalk up a sheet of matte prepainted black aluminum...
