Right now I am working on a small grant proposal. In the process of generating the budget, I am in pricing clipboards. Actually, I am searching for a particular kind of clipboard - one of the storage clipboards that is not made from bright silver metal, so either a painted metal or a plastic one. In sunny days, these would have less glare and not get so hot to the touch.
Anyway - I have not found what I am looking for yet (I have just started looking), but I did find antimicrobial clipboards in both plastic and metal. I think this is taking things too, too far.
