Any board or resurfacing panel 4' × 8' or larger is accompanied by an EverWhite Starter Kit, which includes an EverCloth and a set of four dry erase markers.
We offer a wide selection of accessories, including dry erase markers, EverCloth erasers, map rails, exhibit rails, map hook clips, map winders, flag holders, magnets, dry erase seam strips, and accessory kits.
All framed boards come with L-shaped mounting brackets as well as the hardware needed for standard installations.
No, they do not have any sharp edges. They are specifically designed to prevent any sharp edges on the frames or the marker trays. Whiteboard resurfacing panels do have sharp edges before they are installed, but once properly installed, the edges are shielded by the framing of the resurfaced board and should not pose any kind of safety hazard.
Yes, our marker trays do extend the full length of the boards.
Yes. Simply specify when ordering that you do not want a marker tray. This will not affect the price of your board.
There is no difference in the writing surface or appearance, but magnetic EverWhite boards are manufactured with a 24-gauge steel backing that creates a magnetized dry erase surface. Our most popular framed whiteboards are the magnetic variety, because many people appreciate the convenience of being able to use magnets on their dry erase boards.

The largest single-piece board we can manufacture and ship is 4 ft. in height by 12 ft. in width; however, we often sell multi-piece boards that are connected via a seam strip or H-Channel. Please contact EverWhite customer service at (800) 335-7319 or for specific details.

NOTE: Before ordering a large board or resurfacing panel, it is important to confirm that it is not too large to be carried through the building (through doors and stairways) to the room where it is to be installed. Upon request, we can manufacture products in two or more pieces for easier transport.

A custom cutting fee is a small fee charged for the service of cutting your resurfacing panel or whiteboard to a non-standard size.

Map rails and exhibit rails both consist of a cork bulletin strip used to hang artwork, notes, announcements, etc.

  • Map rails are designed to be mounted on whiteboards. The extra metal flap on a map rail is screwed directly onto the top of a board’s frame. Map rails should not be installed on walls.
  • Exhibit rails are designed to be mounted to walls. Hardware for standard installation is included.

We offer a one-year manufacturing warranty on all products, and in addition, we offer a lifetime surface warranty against ghosting or staining on EverWhite dry erase boards. Please contact EverWhite customer service at (800) 335-7319 or for further details.

EverWhite Dry Erase Surface

Please click here to view a comparison between porcelain dry erase surfaces and the EverWhite dry erase surface.

Please click here to view a comparison between melamine dry erase surfaces and the EverWhite dry erase surface.

The unique EverWhite dry erase surface is completely nonporous, which prevents marker ink from penetrating the surface. This results in optimum erasability and stain resistance, with only minimal maintenance required to keep the dry erase surface in pristine condition.

There are many benefits unique to the EverWhite dry erase surface. Click here to learn more about the benefits of choosing EverWhite.

Any type of dry erase marker may be used, but you may find that certain brands of dry erase markers erase more easily than others. Low-odor dry erase markers are often preferred because they do not have a strong odor, but they are also usually harder to erase than standard dry erase markers. Due to this fact, EverWhite dry erase boards are especially recommended for those who prefer low-odor dry erase markers over standard dry erase markers, because even stubborn low-odor dry erase marker ink can be erased with minimal effort.

Yes, EverWhite boards are available with either a magnetic surface or a non-magnetic surface. When using magnets on an EverWhite board, please use flat, flexible magnets or magnets without sharp edges or protrusions that could scratch the dry erase surface, such as our EverWhite magnets.

To prevent scratching, please do not drag any magnets across the surface.

Over time, dry erase markers usually leave behind particles on whiteboards that resemble dust or residue.

Typical whiteboard erasers often push this dust or residue around the dry erase surface without actually removing it from the surface.

Rather than using a typical whiteboard eraser, we recommend using a microfiber cloth as an eraser, because microfiber cloths are superior for capturing and removing marker ink dust from the dry erase surface. We offer a microfiber cloth called the EverCloth, which is specifically designed to attract and remove marker ink particulates.

Before using other types of whiteboard erasers, please confirm that there are no sharp filaments or edges that would scratch the whiteboard. To receive samples of the EverWhite surface that can be used to test your erasers, please contact EverWhite customer service at (800) 335-7319 or

We have a number of customers who use their EverWhite boards as projection surfaces, although the high gloss may create a glare at certain angles.

Cleaning & Maintenance

The writing surface of the EverWhite dry erase board is covered with a protective sheet to prevent damage during transit. Do not remove this protective sheet until the board is installed. Please remove this protective covering after installation, and be sure to clean the board before the first use.
Over time, dry erase markers may leave behind particles on whiteboards that resemble dust or residue. To keep your EverWhite board looking new, simply clean the surface periodically with water or glass cleaner (such as Windex™). No expensive dry erase board cleaners are required or recommended. For stubborn marks, using a regular dry erase marker, simply write over the stubborn mark. Then, erase as usual.

In the instance that permanent marker is accidentally used, using a regular dry erase marker, simply write over the permanent marker. Then, erase as usual.

To remove permanent marker ink from a large portion of the EverWhite surface, please contact EverWhite customer service at (800) 335-7319 or and you will receive information on effective cleaners.

NOTE: It is important that scouring pads or abrasive cleaners are NOT used on the dry erase surface, as this may damage the dry erase surface.

We don’t recommend using standard whiteboard cleaners because they contain solvents that may harm indoor air quality, especially in poorly vented areas. They can also be expensive. Some whiteboard cleaners can even leave a residue that will make your whiteboards harder to erase.

EverEZ Resurfacing Panels

EverEZ Resurfacing Panels are designed for resurfacing green or black slate chalkboards, melamine whiteboards, or porcelain whiteboards. Resurfacing panels cannot be used on vinyl surfaces, because vinyl surfaces do not provide adequate adhesion.

Please contact EverWhite customer service at (800) 335-7319 or to discuss any installation applications or to request a sample resurfacing panel.

Convenient resurfacing panel measuring instructions are available to walk you through the process of determining what size to order. Click here for the resurfacing panel measuring instructions & measurement form.

EverWhite customer service representatives are also available to help you with the process. For assistance, call (800) 335-7319 or email

A factory-applied industrial strength pressure-sensitive adhesive is used to ensure permanent adhesion of resurfacing panels.
No, you do not need any additional adhesives.
Resurfacing panels are backed with a very aggressive pressure-sensitive adhesive to ensure permanent adhesion. Depending on the surface the resurfacing panel is adhered to, removing the resurfacing panel may or may not be possible. Please call EverWhite customer service at (800) 335-7319 for instructions on how to attempt to remove a resurfacing panel.
It may be possible, but it requires a certain type of industrial shear, and we do not recommend attempting to cut resurfacing panels yourself. To ensure that your resurfacing panel is not damaged when it is cut, we offer custom cutting for a small fee.
Generally speaking, if your old chalkboards or whiteboards have sturdy, decent frames, you should consider resurfacing them. If your old chalkboards or whiteboards have frames that are well past their prime, disposing of the old boards and replacing them is most likely the best option.


The term “ghosting” refers to the effect that occurs when remnants of marks made on a whiteboard are left behind even after erasing.
Yes, we do. Please click here for CAD drawings, specs, or BIM models.
