Think for just a second: What do you do for a living?
Now think for just another second: Where were you the last time you wanted to jot yourself a note or reminder and a drawing surface was inconvenient?
Now take just a second and think of all the ways you can invent to have yourself a surface to write on. Can you put that surface on your laptop, tablet or phone? No? Okay, try again. Can you put that on the wall, stick it to your desk, filing cabinet, or refrigerator?
Okay, no more work. I’ll get to the point. Someone has created a whiteboard surface that (while originally intended for the backs of your electronics) can be stuck nearly anywhere, can be cut to nearly any size or shape, and creates a clean looking, easily accessible dry-erase space anywhere you need it. (Putting them on people is not recommended, not only is there a potential for hair loss when the board is removed, your drawing space may wander away)
We got to play with a few different DrawTop sizes, and had far more fun then we could have expected. Putting one on the back of your laptop offers limitless opportunity for communication and hijinks. While sitting at a restaurant, jotting “Coffee Refill Please, no hurry!” while using your laptop is a great way to flag down your server for your next cup. Fair warning, you may not want to use that technique if the server might take offense. (Most won’t, but we usually tend to see people who are used to our shenanigans)
You can easily flip your laptop closed, your tablet or phone over and start a full scale (or miniature scale, when using a phone) tic-tac-toe war or brainstorming session, wipe it away, and start all over again.
Quality! As always, we sacrificed ours to make sure we could tell you all about it. The first thing you need to know about is size. These are custom cut for your particular device. If you have a 17″ laptop, let them know. If your screen is just a bit strange or not of this world, jot the dimensions down in the “Laptop Info” section when you go to check out. Make sure you are getting the right top for your device.
The adhesive sticking the DrawTop to your expensive tech-baby is tough enough to keep it from falling off on its own or bubbling, but soft enough to allow it to be removed without much work. The drawing surface is a glossy and smooth and can take the damage that your average laptop bag will throw at it, but it will eventually scratch. They tell you this to begin with, and make them easy and inexpensive to replace. They even offer your replacement DrawTop at a discount if you plan ahead and buy it with the first.
Final thoughts: Why didn’t I think of that, and I wonder how much they would charge to cover my office walls in this stuff? Check them out at TheDrawTop.com.
