Chalkart News & Tips

The great thing about using our Chalkart Library is that all the images come with transparent backgrounds. The beauty of this is that you can combine different images to create your own designs. I will put together an example below so you can get the idea of how all the artwork marries together.

STEP 1: Working with Photoshop

We have opened all the images we want to combine together into Photoshop. As you can see, they all come with transparent backgrounds so you can layer the images together. 

 

STEP 2: Rearranging the images

Here we have dragged all the images onto one canvas and have sized and combined the images to make a great piece of artwork for the menu board.

STEP 3: Adding the background

In this image we have opened one of our backgrounds and set it up to the size we need for the menu board. Then dragged the art onto background and positioned it to suit.

STEP 4: Today's Specials Header

Now we have added the header being Today’s Specials and put a blackboard section onto the board so they can write up their Daily Specials.

Step 5: Printing and Mounting 

Here we have the board finished, which was digitally printed using matt adhesive vinyl with a matt laminate mounted on alu composite panel. For the blackboard area you can write directly onto the laminate with Liquid Chalk Pens. Just wipe off with water. Finished off with a timber frame and hung off railing to café.
