Frequently Asked Questions Answered
Chalk Vs. Chalk Markers
We typically use to types of mediums: anti-dust chalk or chalk markers. For weddings and all events we stick to chalk markers to avoid any swiping or smudging during pickup and moving the day of. Our regular, anti-dust chalk comes in handy for smaller pieces such as table numbers.
Our business clients have the option of regular chalk or chalk markers for their requests. If it is a larger piece that will be changed frequently or seasonally, we recommend regular chalk. For large pieces such as menus that will remain the same for quite some time, we recommend chalk markers.
All orders must be placed at least six weeks (42 days) before the date of a client's event. During these six weeks we are creating preliminary sketches, receiving approval of sketches, determining pickup & drop off time, and creating the final chalkboard(s). Please see "How It Works" page for more details about our process.
Rented Vs. Purchased
Clients have the option of renting or purchasing the chalkboard(s) he/she orders. Rented chalkboards must be returned within one week (7 days) of the client's event. This clock begins the day after his/her event. Purchased chalkboards are for the client to keep. There is no return required.

We can hand letter and create designs on almost any surface. If you already have a chalkboard that you'd like us to use, or other surface, let us know! For more information about pricing, please email us.
Pickup & Drop Off
All orders must be picked up from our office location in Nutley, NJ. The pickup date/time will be determined two weeks (14 days) before the date of his/her event. If renting, the pickup date will be set on the closest date of your event as possible (within the week of), without causing an inconvenience to you. For example, if the client's wedding takes place on a Saturday and the rehearsal dinner is on Friday, the client can pickup the rented order anytime between Monday-Thursday. If purchasing, the date of pickup does not have to be as close to the event date as possible. However, please be aware of our turnaround time (see above).
The client has one week (7 days), starting the day after his/her event, to drop off the rented chalkboard(s). This date and time is determined between our team and the client during pickup.
