Readi-Board samples
Adams Premium samples

The paint applied well to all the samples tested. The packaging recommends using these on a dark surface for the best results. You can easily see how much more dramatically the paints show up on the black Readi-Board and Adams premium samples.

No Paper, Readi-Erase, Readi Water Resistant and Readi-Grid samples.

The images don’t really do this product justice, the reflective pigment is very fine and reflects the light wonderfully. More importantly, the paint adhered well to all of the various surfaces. You can see in the image below that even after aggressive scratching on the Readi Water Resistant and Readi-Erase boards the paint still held up.
