Chalkboard Printables: 101It looks rather like menu boards. You know those handwritten on a black board using chalk. The sort you would find in traditional cafes and restaurants. But it’s not! It’s just a printout made to look that way. It's ideal for creating posters for the home, menus for the kitchen, gift tags, and more.

Print Your Own Chalkboard PrintablesYou could use an editing program such as Photoshop or Photoshop Elements, using a chalkboard background and then adding the text, images, effects and filters that you want. However you may not have access to Photoshop on your device (or perhaps Photoshop perplexes you like it does so many of us); in which case you could use the online photo editing program, PicMonkey. This lets you edit, touch up or design items, even letting you create collages.
Choose a photo to edit. You can pick from your computer, a drive, Dropbox or from Facebook. Choose a canvas for your design, use an overlay option of your choice (or use a chalkboard background option that you have downloaded from elsewhere). Add images, graphics and text or word art of your choice.
You can use chalkboard fonts available in PicMonkey or from your computer if the option is available. Play around with the color and blend mode to create the chalkboard effect that you like: dark, light, chalky, clear and so on. Save your design to your computer or drive (if you need access from elsewhere). Use regular paper or cardstock to take a print from your printer.
The Chalkboard Obsessed Pinterest board has great ideas: wedding signs, maps, directions, posters, salutations, jar labels and much more. There are many more ideas you can check out on this Pinterest Chalkboard page.
