1. How can I get a Quote for a Chalkboard?
It's pretty simple. All you need to do is email us at or find Chalk of the Town's Custom Order Form
For any order, Chalk of the Town needs as much information as you can provide. If your sign is for a wedding, We would need to know what material you were after, Chalkboards, Wooden, Perspex etc. Then what type of signage or chalkboards you wanted, what wording you wanted, if you wanted any art or not, the number of signs or chalkboards you were after and the date of your wedding. Don't worry, If you aren't sure on what you are after as we can also help you with that.
For non-weddings Chalk of the Town would need the following information as unfortunately, it is impossible to quote on just the size you required: Please send the date it's required, colours you want, the information you want on the sign or chalkboard, artwork if any, theme/style etc and your postcode. Please attach any artwork if you want specific added.
Please forward on any printed materials you would like to be used for the designing of your signs or chalkboards.
**Please note collection is Bunbury. Postage is available at your expense which I can quote you on. Unless otherwise agreed**
2. How do I order a chalkboard?
That's easy. Chalk of the Town will send you an invoice with the payment details. A 50% Non-refundable deposit is needed to secure your booking. Payment must be made 7 days after the first initial invoice is sent. If no payment has been made your booking may go to somebody else. Once payment has been made and cleared Chalk of the Town will need the following information from you: Full Name, Date required, Email, Address (if being posted), Contact Number, Number of signs or chalkboards and if for a wedding your partner's name. We will then contact you approx 3/4 weeks before your wedding date to design your signs. If it's not for a wedding your signage will be designed and completed by the date required by you.
No, your booking fee is not refundable. If you cancel your wedding please don't ask us if we will refund your booking fee. A 50% booking fee is needed to secure your booking which means that this date is booked out and nobody else can book for this date. Because this date is booked Chalk of the Town will turn any other potential clients away who enquires as we will already have a booking for that said date. If you simply just change your mind your booking fee will also be non-refundable.
We are happy to help and discuss options! Please do speak to Chalk of the Town about it as I'm sure we can come up with some sort of agreement.
3. Is my booking fee refundable?
Unfortunately, Chalk of the Town doesn't supply A-frames or Easels. Your venue or stylist may have them available. If not, you could always purchase one off of Ebay or your local facebook buy and sell page.
4. Do you hire out A-Frames or Easels?
You may notice a small label on the back of our signs with Chalk of the Town's information. Any work that Chalk of the Town designs will have our signature discreetly located on the sign. We would also appreciate it if you would credit our signage and chalkboards where needs be.
5. Labelling my Artwork.
ETA's can vary depending on what signage or chalkboards you have ordered. For weddings, you can expect your sign or chalkboard 1-3 weeks before your wedding or events date unless otherwise agreed.
Should you require your signage before your wedding/event (Such as prior delivery to a stylist), you should inform us of this at the time of booking. If you do not know this at the time, you should tell us as soon as possible. This is to be no later than four weeks prior to the required date.
If you do NOT tell us and then require it sooner, we can take NO responsibility for the item not being ready on time. All signage will automatically be completed and posted 1-3 weeks before required date.
For weddings, Chalk of the Town needs as much notice as possible to do your signage or chalkboards when booking. In the height of the bridal season, we can be booked out for 6 months in advance.
6. When will my signage be ready?
