Grid on the front, blank on the back
It feels like there’s a mullet joke here. But we won’t make it. Our customers love the dot grid for technical drawings, wireframes, and lists, and the blank side is nice when one wants freedom to doodle.
A buttery, smooth surface
This is important for two reasons. First and foremost, the smooth surface makes Swipies really fun to write on. “The wet erase just feels good and is more forgiving than pen,” said Andrew Custer from Snapchat. The second reason: if you’re into things like illustration or iconography, when scanned, Swipies translate very well to vector. There’s no paper grain to distort your edges, just lines that are crisp AF.
And then there's the wet-erase thing
So it’s a mini whiteboard? Well, yes and no. Swipies are not made for dry erase pens. Dry erase pens and cleaners are incredibly abbrasive and destroy surfaces over time. Plus, Swipies are portable and your artwork and information need to make it through travel. Wet erase gives us that. The ink stays put until you rinse it. Rejoice for no smudges! Plus, the pens are just so inky and wonderful. You’ll see.
