What problem does this idea/product solve or what market need does it serve?

The success of Graffiti Global Products will rely heavily on the utility of its products. Both the writable paint and replacement wipe-off boards are products that meet a known product need, but do so at a lower cost. These products are more versatile than previous products such as wipe-off boards and chalk paint. The cost to replace an installed wipe-off board is far greater than to cover it with one of the replacement boards or skins. The versatility of the writable paint allows it be used as a solution when a specific wipe-off board size is incompatible or would require costly customization.
