  1. Smooth Writable Surface:Paint, whether chalkboard or dry erase, is typically applied to a drywall or wood surface.  Drywall, even at a premium finish, will have small pits which become places for marker and chalk to become embedded over time.  Older homes will have added issues of patching and wear, creating a surface that will never be perfectly flat. Formica® Writable Surfaces offer a consistently smooth finish not easily achieved through other writable products.
  2. Inherently Scratch & Impact Resistant: All Writable Surfaces from Formica Group are also inherently scratch resistant and impact resistant. This is a major plus when considering a writable surface for any high traffic areas of the home such as the kitchen or an entry. And let's be honest, when did kids start caring about how precious our walls can be?
  3. Easy to Clean: Formica® Writable Surfaces can be easily cleaned with a cloth or an eraser. (See in depth cleaning directions here for Formica® Writable Surfaces.) Writable paint should be washed weekly to avoid permanent ghosting. The continuous washing also wears down the paint overtime and it will need repainted with constant use and cleaning.
  4. Horizontal & Vertical Application: The versatility of Formica® Writeable Surfaces collection is truly endless. Its unique ability to be installed on most vertical and horizontal surfaces cannot be achieved with paint. Adhere your writable surface across an entire wall, any piece of furniture, cabinet fronts, desks, counters and more.Personalize you’re home and allow your entire family to do the same with one piece of chalk or a marker.
