What are the sizes of the chalkboards?

I currently have three sizes of chalkboard available, Small A-Frame, Large A-Frame & Extra Large Framed.

Small A-frame
Chalkboard part: 200mm x 250mm
Whole sign: 200mm x 300mm
Can be double sided

Large A-frame (with border)
Chalkboard part: 300mm x 440mm
Whole sign: 350mm x 600mm
Can be double sided

Extra Large Framed**
Chalkboard part: 600mm x 900mm
Whole sign: 680mm x 980mm
Single sided only, not free standing (so will need to lean against something or be placed on an easel)
Available in White or Wood
**subject to availability

Please note, all measurements are approximate.

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.

What are the prices of your custom chalkboards including writing?

Prices can vary depending on the size of the board and the number of words you want. General starting prices are listing below based on a maximum of 10 words.

Small A-Frame, from $25 single sided & from $40 double sided.
Large A-Frame, from $40 single sided & from $55 double sided.
Extra Large A-Frame, from $80 single sided.

Can you stain the frame of the board for me?

Sure! I’m able to stain the Large A-Frame boards I have. There are two different stains available, ‘Rustic’ and ‘Chestnut’ – See photos for available colours.

Unfortunately, I am unable to stain the Small A-Frame boards. The Extra Large Framed board is already coloured and cannot be stained.

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 in mind.

What type of chalk do you use?

To ensure an authentic chalk look (rather than paint) as a default I use a chalk pencil that is designed not to rub off easily with an ordinary dry chalkboard eraser. I will also spray the finished board with two coats of a matte fixative to aid durability, but please note it’s not permanent. Care instructions will be provided to you with your board – they are like gremlins, don’t get them wet!

I do have options to be able to write in gold, silver and a more permanent white option if you would prefer.

If I am writing on a board at a venue I generally use regular chalk to ensure the venue can get the writing off, but I will check with the venue what their preferences are.

Not all chalk markers are created equally, so if you’re writing on a hired board yourself, be careful 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?

Of course! 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.
