How it works.

There are just a few simple steps to get your chalkboard made. It's all about communication. Here's what we find works best:

1. What do you want on your board?
Do you have a board or do you need to purchase one?
What do you want on your board? What will it be used for?  Is it a seating chart?
Send us a message and let's get going! 

2. Deposit requested
I ask for a deposit for the materials I need to make and cure your board. And because I pre-design everything for you to see, a deposit allows me to start working on your design! Deposits and/or full payments can be etransferred to hello@chalkboardsandcompany.com. Major credit cards are also accepted but must be full payments with 4% fee.

3. Your board is designed digitally and sent to you
I will create a custom design just for you with what you want on your board. I'll send it via text or email for you to view. Note: Deposits are required before beginning any design :)

4. You approve the design or make any changes
Is something spelled wrong? Do you want more green? Now's the time to tell me what small changes you want to see. 

5. We apply the chalk
I'm an artist at heart - this is my time to shine! I apply your chalkboard markers or dry chalk to your boards all by hand. This can take 3-5 days, depending on the size and our availability. Rush orders accepted at additional cost.

6. Once the job is complete, we'll send a photo to you
To verify that the chalk is on and your board is done, I'll send you a quick photo via text or email.

7. Final payment due
Any outstanding amount is due before pickup or leaving your space. I accept etransfers, cash, or cheque. Paypal or credit card is accepted but a 4% fee is added to your final amount. If you are picking up your board, you can always bring cash for the exchange.

8. Pickup or delivery
Come and grab your board! I work out of my home in Marda Loop, Calgary and can meet anywhere in Marda Loop! The Starbucks or Phil & Sebastian's are popular spots. Delivery is always an option (I know how busy wedding time can be!). Just let me know where and when and we'll try to make it happen. Additional charges will apply and all payment is due before delivery.

9. Enjoy!

Vicki made five custom chalkboards for our wedding last summer. Each one exceeded my expectations. They were exactly what I wanted and added a personal touch to our wedding. We love them so much that we actually have them on display in our dinning room! Thanks so much for your help Vicki!!
— Casey W., married August 2015

I honestly recommend this company 100%.
We bought chalkboards off Vicki for our wedding at a wedding fair which we love. We ended up ordering a custom one that is personalized to us and something we would keep forever! Vicki was so easy to work with. She drafted it up right away, sent us a draft, let us adjust it to be exactly what we want and after our wedding we will hang it in our home forever. Both my fiancé and I were amazed with our custom board. Therefore it was a no brainer for us to reach out to her again when we wanted a custom ‘family tree’ designed for my dad for Father’s Day. We didn’t seek out looking for a chalkboard when we though of the custom family tree, but knowing Vicki’s amazing talent and how personable, and easy to work with, we contacted her right away.. She did a phenomenal job and my dad is going to be so stoked...
Chalkboards & Co. is a FANTASTIC company to work with and I recommend them whether you need a sign for your wedding, or a custom piece for your home, contact them. You won’t regret it!

I messaged Vicki very last minute to do up a sign for a baby shower that I was putting on for a client. Not only did she accommodate me while she was moving, she accommodated me twice with two boards. The boards turned out perfectly, and I got a lot of compliments on them. I highly recommend Vicki with Chalkboards & Company. She is a lovey person, and her customer service skills are better than I could have imagined.

Attention fellow Brides: I just got my chalkboard art back from Vicki of Chalkboards & Co.. I recommend working with her. She is talented, efficient and highly personable. Thank you so much. We are grateful to you!
