Semi-Permanent Dry erase

Semi-permanent Dry Erase Marker

Many times I have had to come into my wife's classroom and re-draw her a calendar or outlines for something. She fills them up and if you want to make corrections you have to be very careful with the eraser.

My idea is for a Semi-permanent dry erase marker (did I mention that). It writes on the dry erase board and dries. The regular eraser cannot erase it. Only a solvent, located on the back side of the special marker can erase it's lines. That way, you can go over semi-permanent lines with the eraser and not erase them, only erasing them when you need to with the back side of the pen.

My wife would love this.

       I've done it that way also. It is still a pain. If you want the line thin, you have to cut the tape yourself. This invention is the incorporation of the semi-permanent (not truly like a sharpie), and a solvent on the back end to remove said semi-permanent.

       A graphic artists' version in a variety of widths, textures, and colors is also available from Chartpak at any good art supply store.

       It still takes too much time to align tape.. and pinstriping ... isn't that supposed to be a permanent application? I'm looking for something more cost effective and a lot easier to apply than tape. Knowing how much teachers spend in their classroom before and after hours, anything that saves time is good.   

       If I have to remove tape from the board every week, I'd rather not put it there in the first place.
