Top shop for gifts.

A buyer bought a gift from this shop and gave it a 5-star review!

Announcement    Welcome to my Etsy shop. Stock now available to order.

I've made a couple of changes. The first is how I operate my shop, I have always run it as a made to order business but from now on I will be making and painting my frames to stock in my standard 3 colours, white, cream and grey.

This means what's available in my etsy shop is near ready to ship, just need to be assembled and packaged. This will drastically reduce waiting times to days rather than weeks waiting for your order to be made from scratch.

The next change has been made to my workshop, I now have the facilities to work with, cut and shape sheet metal (which is a little unusual for a traditional woodworking joinery shop lol).

So now all chalkboards will be made from CERAMIC ENAMELED STEEL. This is the highest quality chalk writing surface, used by professors and mathematicians in universities across the globe!

Also for the first time I am now able to offer STEEL WHITEBOARDS. I have been asked numerous times if I can make a whiteboard version of my noticeboards but I could never find a suitable material to make them from, knowing the best ones were made from steel and not having the right equipment to process it, I refrained from offering whiteboards as an option... Until now!
Both these writing surfaces are magnetic, they're also stain and scratch resistant.

Frequently asked questions
Can I have this in a custom size?

I don't offer custom sizes sorry. I make all my products in batches of standard sizes and layouts, it's the most productive and efficient way of making them.

Can I use liquid chalk pens on the chalkboard?

Yes liquid chalk pens can be used BUT* cheap chalk pens (ones that say window marker on the side) are usually semi permanent and will almost always leave ghosting so will need be wet wiped to remove it completely. Make sure you buy quality chalk pens that have good online reviews like the pens made by Rainbow Chalk Markers. A good quality chalk pen should wipe away dry with ease.

The ceramic enameled steel writing surface is non-porus so any type of chalk should be fine. The drawback with chalk pens is that they will dry out over time. Personally I prefer stick chalk, I've recently discovered Hagoromo chalk, the worlds finest chalk. It works beautifully on this surface! I'll include a stick with every chalkboard for you to try it yourself.

What can I use to wipe the board clean?

The steel whiteboards and chalkboards can be wiped with a microfiber, felt, soft cotton cloth or board wiper. Don't use anything that can be abrasive like a scotch pad. Even though these surfaces are scratch resistant and very hard waring, it doesn't mean that they are scratch proof. Using anything with a rough texture can reduce the life of the board over prolonged periods of time.

Which pens do you recommend to use with the whiteboard?

Not all dry wipe markers are created equal! Some will write strongly but won't wipe away cleanly, leaving smears and residue. Some need a fair amount of effort to remove and others are easy to remove but don't write dark enough :0/

My research and limited testing (I'm a chalkboard man myself, I've been making them for the past 6 years lol) has led me to the Edding 360 pens, they are not the cheapest but they write strongly and are effortless to remove leaving little to no residue behind. I'll include one free with every whiteboard to get you started.

Is the chalkboard/whiteboard magnetic?

Yes, being made of steel both these surfaces are magnetic (as in magnets will stick to them).

Can I have the the cork/chalk/whiteboards swapped?

Yes, I can swap or change the chalk/white/cork board inserts to suit your needs. So if you would prefer a larger writing area than corkboard in one of my combo noticeboards or if you see I have a corkboard listed but no whiteboard/chalkboard for that particular frame style, I can swap it no problem. Just leave me a note stating how you would like it when you place the order.

My board arrived damaged

Its rare that it happens but unfortunately it does happen from time to time.
If your board arrives damaged please break this news to me gently, it's upsetting news to hear. There really is no need put on a strong offence to be listened to, I know it's disappointing. Please be assured I will rectify the problem ASAP.
