Tips & Tricks

With these tips, the next presentation will be an all-around success.

Write expressively

Visualisations: Quick sketches or interesting images make a presentation exciting and understandable. Hardly any perfect presentation can do entirely without any words, however. With these simple but good tips, every font can be staged expressively and legibly.

The faithful flipchart

Got an important presentation coming up? Here are some tips to keep your audience attentive and motivated.

PowerPoint, Prezi or Keynote – whatever tool we use for our presentation, once the slides are overloaded with words, bullets or pictures, listeners have had enough. Let’s be honest, who wants to send their audience into a deep sleep? A picture reinforces the spoken word but, unfortunately, by piling on the pictures, we achieve the opposite. Even in these digital times, a flipchart is the only way to make a presentation really exciting. Here’s why:

  • Fun – the group sees you visualise a strategy or mission on which you’ll be working together after the presentation, watching it take shape step by step before their eyes. It’s fun and creates pride. You’ve achieved something together.
  • Dialogue – working with a flipchart invites discussion. The audience can join in.
  • The bigger picture – visualisation makes it easy to spot causal connections, structures and patterns. After all, a picture says more than a thousand words!
  • It sticks – any visualisation produced together deserves to be displayed where it’s highly visible. Put it up in the corridor or the coffee area: so the message sticks and can be picked up at the next meeting!

edding offers a wide range of markers specially designed for writing on flipchart paper, presentation paper and cards. The highly-pigmented ink, available in a range of brilliant colours, won’t bleed through to the next page.

Tips & tricks for better presentations

The right nib

Our markers complete every office need. At edding, for every presentation surface there is a fitting marker that can be used to expressively visualise ideas. But when do you actually use which nib?

edding flipchart marker with round nib

Marker with round nib

Markers with a round nib are very suitable for drawings and graphics. They are versatile and allow you to design entirely based on your own wishes. The stroke can be between 1.5 - 3 mm wide, depending on how you hold the pen, how hard you press and which surface you choose.

Did you know? Our glassboard marker in red is one of the most popular markers with round!

edding flipchart marker with chisel nib

Marker with chisel nib

The chisel nib ensures particularly good legibility. The marker runs up in a wedge shape and therefore possesses a wide and a narrow side. Depending on how you hold the pen, the stroke will be thinner or wider. An expressive typeface is created by constantly leading the pen to the sheet at a 45° angle.

For every medium the right marker

Whiteboard marker

Whiteboard marker: The advantage of our whiteboard markers is that they can be dry wiped from whiteboards without trace. And once the ink is empty, the pen can easily be refilled.
More than classical black: Our whiteboard marker sets include many different colour combinations.

With frequent whiteboard use, the recommendation is to clean boards thoroughly every few weeks. The edding BMA1 board cleaner is superb for this. The whiteboard cleaner is also a lifesaver if permanent ink accidentally gets onto the whiteboard. If the board cleaner is not at hand, you should not use other cleaners as they might damage the whiteboard surface.

For smaller “accidents” such as a small stroke from a permanent marker, the ink can be dissolved by drawing a new line with whiteboard marker over the old one. As long as it is still wet, it can be removed.

Glass marker

Our glass marker persuades with brilliant opaque colours. They are particularly suitable for surfaces made of glass and coloured glass boards. Of course, they are easily dry wipeable. Why not for once write in white or in red? Our edding 95 glass marker is available in different colour variations.

edding flipchart markers

Flipchart marker

Our flipchart markers have a particularly brilliant ink which does not penetrate through to the next page. The best thing about it: Once the ink is empty, the flipchart marker can easily be refilled!
Strong in combination: Whether chisel, or round our flipchart markers are available in many different colour combinations.

"Cap-off" technology - Always open to continue.

Who doesn’t know it: Distracted for one short time and the marker remains uncapped. A few days later the pen will have dried out - or not? Thanks to the innovative "cap-off" technology, edding whiteboard markers and flipchart markers can be left open for several days / weeks. Entirely without drying out! This way, the marker can be picked up and used again at any time.

Refilling an edding marker

Refilled in no time.

Everything once has an ending - edding written empty? No problem at all! Our whiteboard marker and flipchart marker can be easily and quickly refilled and thus, be brought back to writing in no time. A practical and environmentally friendly solution to extend the service life of the marker. Sustainably influences the environment in a positive way and at the same time saves money with edding refill ink.
