ChalkTalk paper projects

February 16, 2015

At the beginning of the year we showed you drink coasters created with our new ChalkTalk® paper. This week we are happy to share a few more projects using ChalkTalk® paperChalkTalk is great for crafting, home decor and signage. ChalkTalk paper works great with die cutters, rotary cutters and plotters. The paper has a grainy texture which provides exceptional finish for writing or drawing with chalk and chalk pens. ChalkTalk wipes clean with eraser, damp towel or sponge. ChalkTalk sticks to clean, smooth and flat surfaces such as glass, walls, mirrors and most papers and remove easily with no leftover adhesive residue. ChalkTalk is a perfect chalkboard paper for projects big and small!
