    Default If I laminate a calender

    can I use it over and over again with dry erase markers? I have a great blank calender that is HUGE from a teacher supply store. The squares are 3x3, perfect for all the stuff I have to write down. I don't want to waste my $$ laminating it if it's not going to release the ink, though. Thoughts?

    I think dry erase will work but I know the wet erase "overhead" markers will.

    Yep. Did this all the time when I was teaching. Laminated worksheets and stuff for kiddos to write on and then I could erase and reuse.

    Just coming back to post...you beat me to it. Suppose I will be looking for some Vis-a-Vis markers. Perfect!

    Yep, wet erase don't stink - and I think that many of the dry erase markers will permanently stain clothes - I would tend to think that the wet erase would be better for that, too.

    you could probably just use crayola washable markers - the you don't have to buy anything. Assuming you're like me and stocked up on that stuff during the back to school sales.

    Actually these don't work for this, you want the vis s vis marker.

    I laminated something similar and have to echo PPs. Vis a Vis worked much better than dry erase. When dry erase did work, it wiped off TOO easily.

    Laminated it today (13 bucks), bought Vis a Vis markers and some command velcro picture hangers. Hangs on the back on the basement door in the kitchen. Perfecto!!
