Product questions

I have some specific ideas for my scrum, kanban, planning or lean board. Can you customize?

Yes, we can. Contact us and let us know what your ideas are. We design and produce alle our products in-house, so we have the ability to create a custom design that suits your needs. And besides that, we have a lot of experience with teamwork, agile, scrum, kanban, lean and project management. We understand your working process and are able to take it to the next level with our products.

Have a look at a few examples of custom work on our website to get an idea of what kind of products we can deliver.

Why are your TASKcards better than a sticky note?

This is the reason why we designed and produced our products! Sticky notes curl, look messy and when you come to the office in the morning there are always a few sticky notes lying on the ground. And of course, you have no idea if they were already done or not. Sounds familiar? Our TASKcards are magnetic, reusable, washable and stackable. So it can do everything a sticky note can, without the disadvantages of a sticky note.

We aim to design and produce products that are premium quality, well designed and above all; user friendly!

How long do the TASKcards last?

We only use premium quality materials, a TASKcard can last for years. You can use it over and over again, eventually making it even cheaper than a sticky note.

Can I only use the markers PATboard provides with the cards?

The markers we provide are high quality and thoroughly tested on our products. The markers have water soluble ink, this makes sure all the ink comes of when you wash the cards. Other markers may work, but we experienced with some markers that, after a while, some of the ink doesn’t come of the cards, leaving stains.

What is the easiest way to wash my TASKcards?

If you need to clean just a few cards, use a wet dry sheet and wipe them clean. Easy as that!

If you need to clean a large amount of cards, just rinse them under a running tap, then dry them with the provided sheet. It works a bit better with warm water. Cleaning all the cards in a full set takes about 5 minutes.

The provided easy dry sheet can be washed in the dishwasher! But don’t wash the TASKcards in the dishwasher, it’s too agressive for the card coating and it will destroy your cards!

How big should my board be?

How big your scrum board should be depends on how many columns you want to use, how big your team is and how many tasks you have during one sprint. Although it might sound complicated, it’s not. The main thing you should take into consideration is the width of your board.

We advise to assign 30-40 cm to each column in order to have enough space below for placing and stacking TASKcards. This adds to 90-120 cm width when using 3 column cards (TO-DO, DOING, DONE) or 210-280 cm width when using 7 column cards (BACKLOG, SPRINT, TO-DO, DOING, VERIFY, DONE, Blank). If your whiteboard is wide enough it usually also is high enough.

Why should I use a physical agile, scrum or kanban board instead of an online board
A physical board facilitates a space where the team members can meet to gather, discuss and collaborate. This usually leads to better engagement and more ownership within the team.
