You can see everything you need at a glance in our photo. We chose a white edding 4095 chalk marker for our board.
Think up with a motif or a quote for your welcome sign and sketch it out lightly in pencil first. The pencil lines won’t be visible afterwards.
Before you start your design, activate the edding chalk marker as follows: Shake the marker vigorously with the cap on, then remove the cap, place the nib on absorbent paper and pump the marker up and down gently a few times until ink appears in the nib. Now you’re ready to get started. (And after use, always replace the cap securely and store the marker horizontally.)
Use the activated chalk marker to trace over all the lines. To give your design real expression, emphasise individual strokes, or give it extra character by adding small motifs.
If your motif doesn’t work out first time, or you make a mistake, you can simply wipe it off with a damp cloth and make corrections.
When the design is ready, set up your wedding chalkboard sign on an easel in a suitable location.
