This is gorgeous and well made. If I had to complain about anything, I suppose it would be the knot in the side. I think I would have made that the bottom piece so that it didn’t detract from the line of the rest of it...but it’s still very nice! I’m a happy customer.

About

Anything and Everything DIY

The idea to create chalkboard items began shortly after I got engaged in 2014 and started the wedding planning process.

I’ve always loved crafting, and like many brides, I was so excited to have an opportunity to put my special DIY touch on our wedding. I started with making chalkboard wine glasses as wedding favours and after attempting 4 ways to do it, I finally found a process that looked sharp, clean, and something that our guests would actually use again.

I thought I would use my experience to help other brides in an effort to avoid any further Pinterest-fails and listed the glasses on Etsy.

After a few months, I expanded from glasses to offer handmade and custom chalkboards for homes, business, and weddings which grew the business exponentially. I quickly overtook my dad's garage with my small project-turned-business and after a little more than a year, my husband and I bought our first home and converted our garage to accommodate my official "side-hustle"!

I pride myself on offering a North-American handmade option for a something considered to be a functional product for business' and families. I try to bring a sense of fun with seasonal colours (think teal, plum, mustard, and navy for Fall 2018!) while still being modern and polished.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Returns and exchanges
I don't accept returns, exchanges, or cancellations
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
Cancellation
---------------------------------------
If for any reason you need to cancel your order, full refunds can only be issued within 24 hours of your purchase. If you must cancel your order after 24 hours of your purchase, but before an item has shipped, a 20% "restocking fee" will apply.

Refund Policy
---------------------------------------
All items are final sale. The only exception to this policy is if an item is broken in transit (see below).

Broken In Transit
---------------------------------------
Due to the fragile nature of the items being shipped I do my best to include LOTS of bubble wrap and padding. If for some reason an item is broken in transit, please send a message within 5 days of delivery with with a photo of the broken item AND the package it came in. I will then initiate a damage claim with the post office immediately. Unfortunately, Canada Post requires the recipient to answer a few questions so I kindly ask you to look out for this information in your email inbox.

Customers will have the following options:

1) Refund for the cost of the items broken (refunded through Etsy)
2) Re-shipment of the number of items broken by untracked-regular post
3) Re-shipment of the number of items broken by tracked-expedited post (charged to buyer)

*** I cannot initiate the refund/re-shipment process if customer does not respond to the Canada Post case.***
Payment
Rush Orders
---------------------------------------
If you need your item sooner than the standard processing times, rush order upgrades are available. Please contact me before ordering to ensure I can meet your delivery deadline. Please do not leave notes at checkout requesting quicker shipping as I cannot guarantee the item will be ready without previous communication. If no contact is made prior to the order, the items will be shipped within the standard delivery times noted in each listing.
Shipping
Shipping Timeline
---------------------------------------
Glassware & Wall Planters - 1 week production time + shipping time
Chalkboards - 2 weeks production time + shipping time
Sandwich Boards - 3 weeks production time + shipping time
Custom - 3 weeks production time + shipping time

United States Orders: 4-10 business days for delivery in addition to the initial processing/creation time.

Canadian Orders: 3-10 business days for delivery (depending on your province) in addition to the initial processing/creation time.

If you need your items by a specific date, please send me a message in advance so that I can confirm if I am able to meet the deadline :) Rush order upgrades are available!

Shipping Address
---------------------------------------
All items will be shipped to the mailing address currently listed on your Etsy account. If you would like the items sent to an alternative address (within the same country) please update the delivery address at the time of checkout, or send me a message within 24 hours of the order. Chalkboard Chique cannot cover additional shipping charges to re-send items if the original mailing address provided by the buyer is incorrect.

If an item is "returned to sender" (sent back to Chalkboard Chique) due to address issues, customers have the following options:

1) Paying for the additional shipping charges to have the item re-shipped
2) If you do not wish to pay additional shipping charges to the new mailing address, a refund can be issued for 80% of the item total. Original shipping charges will not be refunded as they will have already been "used" for the initial shipment attempt.

Custom pieces that are marked "return-to-sender" where customers do not want to pay for re-shipment will only be eligible for a 50% refund of the item due to the custom nature of the pieces.

Shipping & Handling Costs
---------------------------------------
Shipping prices reflect the option that includes a tracking number so that you can follow where the items are in transit. Garden markers, chalk, and ornaments are the only exception as they are shipped in such a small package that tracking is not included.

Because of the fragile nature of the items, actual shipping postage may be slightly less than quoted because I invest the remaining funds in bubblewrap and shipping boxes in addition to the CanadaPost shipping rate.

Customs & Duties
---------------------------------------
If you live outside of Canada, you may have to pay duties or taxes when you receive your package. This is completely outside of my control and I cannot provide a quote (unfortunately) so please check with your local post office and/or postal services if you have duties-/taxes-related questions.

Please note, the full purchase price of your order will be declared on the customs form. I am not able to mark orders as "Samples" or "Gifts".

Ottawa/Local Pick Up
---------------------------------------
Local pick up is available in Ottawa (Kanata). Shipping charges will be refunded at the time of pick up. If no pick-up can be arranged within 30 days of your order, or if customers cannot make the previously-scheduled pick-up time, the items will be shipped and unfortunately, no refund will be provided for the shipping charge incurred.

Thank you!

Chalkboards: We've recently upgraded our chalkboards and they are now compatible with chalk markers which can be easily erased with a damp cloth.
