Sketchcase: Whiteboard Cover for Your Laptop

$16,665

525

People have been using whiteboards to come up with amazing ideas and to solve all sorts of problems. We've taken this whiteboard experience and made it portable by attaching it to the one object that we carry around that is just big enough to be used as a whiteboard: our laptops. Now, you can have a whiteboard to come up with amazing ideas and to solve problems wherever you go!

The quality of the dry erase markers matter. We would like to include dry erase markers as our stretch goals so that you don't have to buy them separately.

  • $10,000 Stretch Goal - One Free Expo Dry Erase Marker (random color)
  • $15,000 Stretch Goal - Two Free Expo Dry Erase Markers (random color)
  • $20,000 Stretch Goal - Free Pack of Expo Dry Erase Markers (4 colors: black, red, blue, green)

 

 

Sketchcase is a premium laptop sticker turns your laptop into a portable whiteboard. It's not meant to replace pen and paper but to give you another tool to be creative. When you're designing an app, you start with a wireframe. When you're creating an art, you start with a sketch. Sketchcase will help you focus on the big picture and ignore the fine details when your goal is to be creative.

  

With Sketchcase, you can start utilizing the empty space on your laptop. Advertise your service, product, or company. Try sharing your Instagram or Twitter handle. Or even try sharing a joke or a cute message.

One of the best things in life is seeing a smile on a person's face and knowing that you put it there.

Here's an awesome review by Tom at Pack Hacker:

We have carefully chosen our materials to create the perfect whiteboard sticker. We are proud to say that our final product is made in Canada.

We made sure that Sketchcase is super easy to apply by using air egress technology to prevent air bubbles and wrinkles during installation.

 

 Our anti-graffiti surface prevents ghosting and staining from ink. This allows for easy removal of dry erase, wet erase, and even permanent markers. 

 

We learned that scratches are a major problem when using a laptop as a whiteboard. We've created a scratch-resistant coating for superior durability. 

 

 We’re using Avery, one of the most trusted vinyl brands, as the base layer to ensure clean removability. The vinyl is rated 10-year long-term removable so that it does not damage your precious laptop.

Don't see your laptop model on the list? No problem! You can give us the dimensions of your laptop and we'll make you a custom-sized Sketchcase at no extra cost. The only restriction is that the longest side must be less than 14.8 inches due to the packaging and shipping restrictions.

Risks and challenges

The world can be unpredictable but we have prepared as best as we could: everything from the supply chain, manufacturer, packaging, to shipping. We are confident that all orders will be shipped out by the expected date.

The one thing we do not have control over is when some packages get lost or damaged in transit. To overcome this problem, we'll include insurance with the shipping.
