WHAT ARE THE SIZES OF THE CHALKBOARDS / SIGNS?

I currently have two sizes of handmade chalkboards / signs available – Large & Medium (approx. A4). A border / frame can be added to the large boards for a small additional cost if you would prefer this look. Each board is single sided, with no stand and can be made to either in portrait or landscape orientation. These signs look great displayed on an easel or leaning against a barrel etc.

Large Chalkboard
Without border/frame: 600mm x 900mm
With border/frame: 600mm x 900mm (available writing space 540mm x 840mm)

Large Stained Wooden Sign
Without border/frame: 600mm x 900mm

Large Acrylic Sign
Without border/frame: 600mm x 900mm
Includes your choice of colour backing on clear acrylic

*Note, all large signs are not free standing and will need to be placed on an easel or lent against something sturdy.

Medium Chalkboard
Without border/frame: 210mm x 288mm
Comes with a small wooden stand and can be made double sided.

Medium Acrylic Sign
Without border/frame: 210mm x 297mm (approx. A4)
Comes with a small wooden stand and includes your choice of colour backing on clear acrylic.

Additionally, I can also turn almost any photo frame into a chalkboard! So if you’re looking for something in particular we can work together to source a frame and I can make this into a chalkboard.

Please note that large single sided chalkboards are painted with chalkboard paint on one side and regular black paint on the other in case they are displayed on an easel so they look similar from both sides. Wooden signs are also stained on both sides. Medium boards are painted with chalkboard paint on both sides. Please note, all measurements are approximate.

DO YOU HANDWRITE ALL THE BOARDS?

Yes! All Nutmeg Creative chalk boards are hand lettered (so no generic decals) for a truly personalised handmade touch for your special event.

I can however utilise a small number of different fonts and replicate them as best as possible on a board if you have a specific font / style in mind.

WHAT TYPE OF CHALK / PAINT DO YOU USE?

To aid durability I use paint pens as a default and I will spray the finished board with a coat of a matte fixative or varnish.

I also have options to be able to write in gold, silver, black and other coloured paint pen options as well as a non-permanent but durable white chalk pencil that looks more like regular chalk if you would prefer.

Please note that not all chalk markers are created equally, so if you’re writing on a hired board yourself, be careful because some won’t come off!

WHAT IF I WANT TO SUPPLY MY OWN BOARD?

Awesome! I love it when customers have a specific board they want written on! The cost for this would be quoted based on the size of the board and the number of words required and I would work with you to determine this.

THERE’S A CHALKBOARD AT MY VENUE, CAN YOU WRITE ON THIS?

Absolutely! I love to write on chalkboards that are already on venue walls. For this I use regular chalk to ensure that the venue can remove it when they need to, but I will check with the venue what their preferences are. The cost for this would be quoted based on the size of the board and the number of words required and I would work with you to determine this.

DO YOU HIRE OUT OR ARE THE BOARDS FOR PURCHASE?

All the boards I have available are for purchase. If you are looking to hire chalkboards I can highly recommend my friends at Found Collective. I’ve worked with them a number of times and absolutely love writing on their ‘Goldie’ board.
