Want to know more about Acrylic/Plastic Clipboards

Types of plastics used to make clipboards

Several types of plastics are used to make clipboards, and each has different benefits. Acrylic clipboards are transparent, making them easy to see through. They are also scratch-resistant, so the board remains a smooth surface to write on. Writing boards made with PVC are rigid so they don’t bend when writing on them. The plastic is very strong, so the clipboard lasts a long time.

Other types of materials include hardboard clipboards and aluminum clipboards. Both are sturdy, smooth, and strong.

Features of plastic clipboards

A clipboard is so much more than just a clip and a board. Other features make work easier or add a bit of personality. Some types of clipboards with useful features include:

  • Clear clipboards or transparent colored clipboards to see papers held underneath
  • Boards that open to reveal a compartment to hold papers
  • Clipboards with a handle on the bottom for easy carrying
  • Many feature an included pen attached to a cord that clips to the top for safe keeping

The many sizes of plastic clipboards

The most common clipboard sizes are 9 x 13 inches and 6 x 9 inches. Clipboards that are 9 x 13 inches hold a regular sheet of paper with a bit of extra room around the edges to fit standard legal-sized paper. A clipboard that is 6 x 9 inches holds junior legal paper for writing shorter notes and to avoid carrying around a full-sized clipboard.

Plastic clipboards made with recycled material

Certain plastics aren’t easy to recycle because it isn’t cost effective, but many companies will try to reuse them. It is possible to find clipboards made from recycled plastics. Look at the label for any reference to recycled materials. There is often a Mobius recycling symbol with a percentage number written inside that states how much of the material in the product is recycled. Purchasing clipboards made from recycled materials helps the environment and keeps waste out of landfills.

Using plastic clipboards as rulers

Since clipboards are made from the same stiff material as rulers, it makes sense to use them as rulers, too. In fact, many clipboards have notches cut into them for that exact reason. One side might have inches and the other centimeters. This gives the clipboard a dual purpose for users on-the-go.
