FREE Chalkboard Background

This free chalkboard background template is 8×10 so it is perfect for printing your own! I have used this many times for digital and print projects! Once you find the right chalkboard lettering font that you like, you can pull this into Photoshop or even Word. I know some that use PicMonkey and others too. Let me know if you use any of these how you use them and tag me @colormemeg so I can see!

Want MORE free fonts?

I am still, after many years of collecting, downloading more and more fonts. When I come across a new free handwriting font or a free chalkboard font that I haven’t seen and I think I might use, I legitimately get excited. Perhaps I have some hoarder tendencies, but hey, at least they don’t take up space in my garage…

Here are some of my favorites that I’ve shared in the past. If you like them, comment and let me know! Let me know how you used them!

      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!?

    • Meg Clifford

      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,

    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?

    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?

    • Meg Clifford
      December 2, 2013 at 10:15 pm (5 years ago)

      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!

      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

    • Meg Clifford
      December 20, 2013 at 9:13 am (5 years ago)

      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?

    • Meg
      June 18, 2014 at 9:33 am (5 years ago)

      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. 😉

    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! 😉
