Frequently Asked Questions

Do you rent out boards?
We rent out a small selection of chalkboards but prefer to work with rental companies for large events, weddings, corporate events, and styled shoots. Our two favorite local connections are The Meaningful Details (Bonney Lake) and Vintage Ambiance (Bellevue).

Can you custom make boards or frames for me?
Yes. Chalk Artistry & Design creates chalkboards and wood signs in-house to your specific dimensions. Framing is an additional cost that is subject to your desired outcome (example: vintage, handmade, or store purchase). Many vintage frames are found at auction, second-hand stores, or through rummage sales. We can create rustic handmade framing to your specifications in house or will look to find a frame that matches your decor, color preferences, and budget.

Do you only do chalkboards?
Chalk Artistry & Design seeks to be a one-stop shop, offering services in not only chalkboards but also calligraphy, watercolor art, wood plank signage, and graphic design. If you are interested in another form of artwork, please do not hesitate to ask. We are willing to consider whatever you have in mind!

Do you only provide hand lettering services for weddings and cafes?
We provide lettering services to all, including but not limited to brides & grooms and coffee shops. Much of what we do is custom art for individuals for home decor, parties, small events, engagements, and encouragement.

Do you deliver? Do you ship?
We do deliver whenever possible; it’s always fun to actually meet clients! We also ship within the United States and will consider shipping Internationally if needed.

If I have an event coming up, how does the process work?
Let’s talk! Fill us in on all the detail you wish to see in the end result. We love learning about your event and what you hope Chalk Artistry can provide – from colors to lettering and design ideas. We can meet to discuss these details or communicate through email or phone, whichever is easiest for you. For chalkboards and wood plank signage, all details and final changes should be fully discussed by two weeks prior to your event so that we have time to accomplish them to our best ability. The deadline for graphic design and calligraphy is quite a bit longer (4-6 weeks), depending on the size of the project needed. We will also schedule out the perfect time and location to meet, usually several days before your event, and you will be provided with a paper copy of the invoice and a receipt upon completion for your records.
