Some may say that chalkboards are now a thing of the past, but why should they be? The humble chalkboard can be a useful tool for presenting or displaying information in many establishments. Let me talk you through the ways in which a cheap chalkboard can be utilised.

Chalkboards have been around for hundreds of years and were always the preferred teaching tool for use in class rooms. They declined in popularity in more recent years due to scares of health issues relating to the dust that the chalk produced and the effect that had on pupils who inhaled it. This is when the now popular dry wipe board came about as being the preferred product for class rooms. Just because chalkboards are no longer used in schools and colleges, it does not mean that chalk boards cannot be used elsewhere. Amongst their many uses these days, bars and restaurants use them widely to display menus and special offers and events. Their appearance fits in perfectly in these environments as they add a really traditional touch.

Cheap Chalkboards are readily available in the UK, and they range from wall mounted boards, to table top boards and even pavement signs. Our cheap chalkboards are made with slightly difference materials to those used in years past within educational establishments which means that they will not accept real chalk which most of us will remember from our childhood, but there are chalk marker pens which work even better and do not have any health worries attached either! They work just as a normal marker pen would and will wipe clean from your cheap chalkboard easily, and I am sure you will find that they will make your display much neater and more professional.

The most popular of our cheap chalkboards is a dark mahogany framed chalkboard. They are available in 3 sizes; 25x35cm, 31x51cm and 50x80cm, and at such an affordable price so it’s no surprise that they are such good sellers. This cheap chalkboard comes complete with ‘O’ screw fixings making them ideal for wall mounting should you wish. On the other hands, at these small sizes, they are also ideal for propping up on a counter or for handheld uses.

If you have children then you will know how much they love to play ‘teachers’, and so what better idea than to treat them to their very own cheap chalkboard easel. Not only can they use this for imaginative play, but it can double as a learning tool to aid them in their homework too.

These are just a fraction of the uses of cheap chalkboards, so why not purchase your own today and add a traditional feel to your business or home.
