Skin Only -  Generally refers to a thin hard non-flexible surface permanently coated with a dry erase coating.    Most common would be ceramic material baked on 24-28  gauge steel.
Our Markaboard line also offers MarkaSub and MarkaRace steel which are polymer coating on steel.     Skins need to be either glued directly to a wall and trimmed or laminated onto hardboard and framed to get a usable product.   A Steel skin dry erase board weights approximately 1 lb per sq ft, has pointy corners and sheared edges that should be covered.   This gauge steel by itself  needs to be mounted to some type of backing by either customer or us at factory.
for example see  26     MarkaRaceSteel   MarkaSubSteel  

Backed panels - Skin only above laminated to either 1/4 hardboard, 1/2" MDF or some substrate.
this can be sold like this and is usually framed by customer with wood trim.  
for example see 27  or

Framed boards - steel skin laminated to backer of hardboard or MDF and then framed with either aluminum extrusions or wood.
