Admit it. Part of the reason you became a teacher was so you could decorate your classroom with awesome bulletin boards, right? Yeah, we get it, and you’re not alone. The only bummer part is putting up the background paper, which tends to fade and become full of holes and rips by the end of the year. That’s why teachers are going wild for Better Than Paper.

This magic material is stronger and easier to work with than paper, so it lasts for years (really!). It comes in a bunch of gorgeous patterns and colors. And did we mention you can write on it and wipe off the writing later, like a whiteboard? Take a look at how teachers are using this incredible product in their classrooms and prepare to be amazed.
