Magna Visual Vinyl Chart Tape, 1/8 x 324, Black
Decent tape and is a good thickness
This tape is suitable for most white boards and walls with white board paint applied to them. The tape when removed can leave a residue on the board which should be cleaned off with white board cleaner and a good white board cloth not eraser. Do not use other cleaners to remove the residue or it will likely remove the top coat on the board leading to damage. I have replaced this tape several times as needed to redesign the board?s layout with no real issue. I would like it if the tape came in a dispenser similar to a rolling white out tape to allow for better overall placement.
The 1/8? thickness is a nice size for all board sizes. Unless the board is meant to be seen from a great distance like a large hotel meeting room as opposed to the typical large office conference room then this is the best thickness. Go with the slightly larger thickness only if the room seats more than 150 people.

Can make a chart... but don't ever remove it
I bought this hoping to make a simple grid for a D&D Board. I measured some tiles a bit off and wanted to make adjustments. I started to peel it off and it peeled off the whiteboard with it. To be fair, I shouldn't have assumed that because it was a tape made specifically for this purpose, that it wouldn't damage the board. And it could also be the quality of the whiteboard itself that I got that poor, making this tape rip off the surface.

If I wanted to make a grid I couldn't remove, I should have used a permanent marker instead.
It's perfect if you've no intention of ever removing it and are precise enough to not mess up and adjust, otherwise you may end up having to buy another whiteboard. You CAN remove it if you do so extremely slowly, and at a parallel direction to the board. Even if you do this, there is a chance of it still ripping off a small portion of the board.
