I discovered a great productivity perk a while back for my speaking audience that use dry erase markers on glossy photo paper. I just create easy to use tent cards that serve a dual purpose for my students. On one side of the folded tent they can write their name with a dry erase marker. The other side contains login information for my class. As a trainer, this has helped me get people logged in quicker and build rapport by visually learning peoples names as I walk around the room.
Taking the next step with this idea, I created three larger dry erase boards that work well for planning, decision making, and storyboarding. I’d like to make these available to you for free. These all print out on a sheet of glossy 8 x 12 photo paper, which is available at most one hour photo shops. I use Costco for my photo printing and I noticed that the 8 x 12 size prints better than 8 x 10 as it is a standard cut size. I suggest you experiment with one print first to make sure it works with your photo store. I’ve included 8×10 and 8×12 sizes below. In the U.S., Costco, Walmart and Walgreens stores all offer one hour photo printing at reasonable prices. Alternately, there are many online only photo stores that will work as well.
