    Thanks for sharing! What font is the &quot;and&quot; that&#39;s before SKETCH? also..what font did you do the &quot;you and me&quot; poster in! Love them all! Thanks!

      The &quot;and&quot; in both is actually from a separate pack I found with &quot;Chalk Elements&quot; it can be found here:<br /><br />I just paid for it, since I design with them often, but if you would use them- it&#39;s so worth it!!<br /><br />The &quot;you&quot; and the &quot;me&quot; are written in the &quot;hand-letter&quot; font listed above.

    Hi Meg! Thanks for the post! I&#39;m new to this whole thing – and I&#39;ve download the fonts, but I&#39;m not sure how to access them once they are on my computer. I have a MAC, and I&#39;m not sure which program is best – any help!?

      If you are on a MAC you just need to drag the .ttf files into your FontBook (application) and it will ask if you want to install. Some programs will need to be restarted to see the fonts show up,

    Where did you find the actual banners (not the font inside, but the banners themselves)?

    November 24, 2013 at 6:30 am (1 year ago)

    Love this! I&#39;m looking to make my own calendar pages using chalkboard fonts. I just can&#39;t figure out how to draw lines that look chalk lines for the boxes. Any ideas?

    November 29, 2013 at 6:56 pm (1 year ago)

    I want to use some chalkboard fonts on black paper for a display, I think I am missing something but how do I print these out? Photo paper at a lab, on my printer at home, at an office supply store printer? I would see myself going through TONS of black ink. Any tips anyone?

      You could definitely print at a photo lab or office supply store. I like Persnikety Prints as well. They print the full color pages on cardstock so it&#39;s perfect for prints!

      December 20, 2013 at 9:05 am (1 year ago)

      First of all, thanks so much for this post! I&#39;m a new fan of your work and I&#39;m so glad to have found you!<br /><br />Second, I checked out Persnickety Prints, and I&#39;m not quite sure where in their variety of print features would I select? Would it be Photo Prints or something else? You had mentioned cardstock, so I wasn&#39;t sure if it was something different.<br /><br />Excuse my

      Mandy, no problem! When you select a print, select cardstock/wall art 8×10. It prints so pretty, with the colored background and is cut 8×10. Hope that helps!

    Love these! Thank you for sharing the all in one place. How do you get the ‘stretch’ effect where the words go up/down? What software did you use to make your digital chalkboards?

      I use photoshop so I am able to skew the text by dragging the corners wherever I want them and applying text effects to bend them…etc. ;)

    Lifesaver! I’m making Bachelorette party invitations and these are perfect.

    Is this background free for commercial use? I won’t use if you’d prefer it stay for personal use only. :)

      Yes, the background you can do whatever you want with! ;)

        Great, thanks so much!
