How does it work ?
Use the Stabilo pens that comes with the package to start sketching. Spray with water using the mini sprayer (just couple of gentle press is enough). Simply wipe off using the cloth (included) or with any tissue paper. It's that easy. You are all set to sketch again on your brand new letterforms.
Imagine the day when re-usable expressive medium are conveniently found at every child’s desk instead of on the walls.

It's TYVEK from DuPont. Help reduce the cost, environmental impact and waste issues from harvesting millions of acres of virgin forest land for paper pulp.
What is the medium made of?
Tyvek® brand protective material is a miracle of science from DuPont. It is a family of tough durable sheet products of high-density polyethylene fibers. The sheet is formed first by spinning continuous strands of very fine interconnected fibers, and then bonding them together with heat and pressure. Tyvek® is white, non-toxic, chemically inert and contains no binders. The non-woven sheet, after bonding, combines a good printing or coating surface, high opacity and toughness to a degree unique among sheet products of similar weight and price. A unique, proprietary manufacturing process perfected by DuPont over 24 years ago makes Tyvek® ideal for a variety of applications. Combining TYVEK and Stabilo art pens makes a perfect medium for writing.
How it is different from others?
Most people think, reusability reduces the quality over-time but with letterforms your medium is always fresh and brand new. It is very rare to find a design based expressive mediums like letterforms at every child's desk or in a cubicle. This is the first wet-erase medium built on top of Tyvek® from Dupoint® delivering the power of paper, design, portability and re-usability. The kit includes 2 design mediums, 2 Stabilo fine art pens which can write continously for about 2000 Meters, 1 mini water sprayer so you don't have to move from your desk and a lint-free cloth to wipe-off instantly and everything enclosed elegantly in a re-usable magnetic flap box.
Taking paper beyond the tree. The better whiteboard alternative as we know it has forever been changed.
Will there be different sizes?
Currently the sheets comes at 8.5 x 11 Inch size. Our expressive medium can be designed in a number of different sizes quite easily. We are looking into releasing different sizes to accomodate the spectrum of different sizes.
Can I use Dry erase or permanent markers?
No. Our forms works like a charm with Paper Mate and Stabilo fine art pens and other washable markers as a single drop of water would get the job done. The medium will accept any inks but the wipe cloth when wet with water will work only for washable pens. The kit comes with 2 stabilo pens which lasts for years. Extra supplies are available for purchase at a very low price from us. These pens are fine art pens with minimal ink release which works best for precise sketching and much economical than bulky markers.
Why is the water sprayer so small ?
The sprayer can hold 8 ml of water which is a lot actually for a 8.5 x 11 inch area.
Just a single spray onto the medium is more than enough to clean the complete sheet and with the same dampness you can re-use again to wipe the ink.
Why Wet-erase and why not Dry-erase?
Dry erase boards are usually blank, white, costly and bulky. Even the dry erase markers manufactured specifically for dry erase boards creates the "ghost effect" ultimately reducing the quality and value of "re-use". Dry erase medium doesn't support ultra fine pens and doesn't create the natural writing effect. Dry-erase method limits the possibilities of using various other pens/markers and demands only special marker pens. The dry-erase markers cannot be used on paper and the thickness of the inks are not suited for viewing at short and close range. Dry-erase markers (at least most) has a chemical odor/fumes that are found allergic among children. Dry erase markers prevent children in having have fun as it is tough to remove the Dry erase marker stains from clothes. On other hand, washable pens are always clean and environment friendly.
