The guy who came up with the idea was making these things out of paper and laminate in his bedroom. It’s a really simple low-tech device and he even posted the DIY instructions online so anyone could make it themselves. I thought it was definitely worth $10 to have him assemble it.
I placed an order and got it via USPS within a week.
I cut off 2/3 of the whiteboard with scissors and stole my fiance’s clear hair tie to make the package pocketable.
It came with a retractable dry erase marker + a piece of attached felt on the handle, which is one of the best inventions I’ve ever seen. It makes writing and erasing super convenient.
I talked to the designer and apparently he now includes a different non-retractable marker with his current orders and now includes a microfiber bag that can be used as an eraser instead.
It’s funny, the Amazon product page admits:
Reviewers say, “It looks like someone took notecards and laminated them so they fold up.” That’s pretty much exactly what happened.
Since it’s so low-tech, the edges of mine have already started to get slightly yellow, but for another $10 I’ll just replace it when it gets too bad.
For $10 this is one of the best investments I’ve made this year :)
