Chalk Board Sign

Outdoor chalkboards are a popular and versatile communication tool, offering businesses a unique and engaging way to connect with their customers.

Chalk board signs provide a platform for showcasing messages, promotions, menus, or daily specials ideal for use in pubs, restaurants, cafes, hotels and retail outlets. Chalk written displays are a great way to present a message that can often change, such as special's menus or promotions. 

They are extremely popular in the hospitality industry as the blackboard surface allows for quick and easy customisation, enabling businesses to adapt their messaging to align with changing promotions or events. This versatility ensures that your communication remains relevant and impactful, attracting attention and driving customer engagement.

Outdoor chalkboards are designed to withstand various weather conditions. The specially treated (high-pressure laminate) chalkboard surface is weather-resistant, ensuring that your messaging remains intact even during rain or direct sunlight. Additionally, the durable and sturdy construction of these signs ensures their longevity, making them a reliable choice for long-term outdoor use. Manufactured from real wood, or wood-effect metal frames that are powder-coated for durability.

Updating messaging on outdoor chalkboards and chalk board signs is effortless. With a simple wipe or eraser, you can easily modify or refresh your content as needed. This flexibility allows for real-time updates and quick adaptation to changing promotions or events. Additionally, maintaining outdoor chalkboards is straightforward, requiring only occasional cleaning to keep the surface clean and professional. We recommend using liquid chalk pens to write your communications. The writing is rainproof 1-hour after application but can be easily removed with a damp cloth when it's time for a change. Clean, crisp writing can be achieved in comparison to chalk sticks which can be dusty and inaccurate.

Outdoor chalk board signs offer a cost-effective communication solution for businesses. It's a low-cost investment compared to other business signage options, and the reusable nature of chalkboards eliminates the need for frequent replacements. This cost-effectiveness makes outdoor chalkboards an attractive choice for businesses of all sizes.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are Outdoor Chalkboards waterproof?

Outdoor Chalkboard surfaces naturally possess weatherproof qualities thanks to their high-pressure laminate composition that effectively repels water. The real wood A-frames are treated with a satin lacquer to shield them from rain, although occasional lacquer renewal after many years is recommended to maintain the condition of wood frames long-term.

In addition, our metal frames (with real-wood effect) are manufactured from a durable steel frame and feature a weather-resistant (and rust-resistant) powder coating with a wood-like finish. This not only preserves the traditional aesthetic of a wooden Chalkboard A-board but also requires little to no maintenance.

Yes, we have a great range of A-Frame style Chalk Board Signs suitable for a wide range of businesses. Our A-frame Chalk Board Signs consist of two chalkboard panels connected at the top, which can be unfolded to create a robust triangular 'A' frame. A-frame Chalk Board Signs are offered with both traditional wooden frames and contemporary metal frames with wood-effect powder coating. Both options are waterproof and suitable for outdoor and indoor use.

An alternative chalkboard design is the panel board style, which is slotted into a sturdy rubber base for a slightly different take on traditional Chalkboard Signs. 

We do not recommend leaving Chalk Board Signs outside during inclement weather or overnight. When left unsupervised they are at risk of damage or theft. Their highly portable and folding A-Frame design means they are incredibly easy to fold and put away, and just as easy to place back outside during the day.

Chalk Board Signs are incredibly easy to assemble partly because they are delivered fully assembled (if you purchase an A-Frame style Chalkboard Sign). Our SUREFLEX chalkboard Panel Sign does not get delivered assembled but offers a quick and easy tool-free assembly. 

For Chalkboard Pavement Signs, especially when placed outdoors, we strongly advise using liquid chalk pens. While conventional chalk sticks can be used, it's important to note that if the writing gets exposed to rain, it is susceptible to smudging or being washed away.

Our liquid chalkboard pens are designed to resist rain (rainproof approx. one hour after application) yet they can be conveniently removed with a damp cloth whenever you wish to update your marketing message.

Yes, we sell Wall Mounted Outdoor Chalkboards in five sizes. Each blackboard panel has pre-drilled holes (one in each corner) for wall mounting but does not include wall fixings. 

The HPL chalk surface is easy to clean and has been awarded the 'Greenguard’ Indoor Air Quality Certification which makes it safe to use in school and educational environments (indoors and outdoors). 

Outdoor Chalkboard Pavement Signs offer a traditional-style pavement display that can be used in almost any business setting where you want to promote and share information. They are great for capturing the attention of those strolling by, effectively drawing more visitors to your business.

The double sided chalkboard provides a blank canvas for you to create attention-grabbing, creative designs that can be easily changed and adapted to suit your seasonal promotions and offers, whether that is on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis.

The wooden chalk board signs have a charming rustic and natural aesthetic, making them well-suited for a variety of businesses within the hospitality sector, including pubs, country inns, restaurants, bars, sports bars, and cafes.

HPL stands for "High-Pressure Laminate" when referring to a chalkboard. High-Pressure Laminate is a type of durable material that is often used to create chalkboard surfaces. It is known for its resistance to wear and tear, moisture, and impact, making it a popular choice for chalkboard applications in various settings. HPL Chalk Board Signs are relatively lightweight and offer a smooth and consistent writing surface, making them suitable for both indoor and outdoor use.

We sell a pack of five Liquid Chalkboard Pens that can be used with any of our Chalkboard Signs. We do not sell traditional chalk sticks.
