Using our unique old and antique frames our magnetic chalkboards are perfect to help organise busy lives as they have three facets: a complete magnetic board, a chalkboard for standard chalk and also for the use of liquid chalk for fine & detailed writing. We use the highest grade of chalkboard vinyl that we could find, it is scratch resistant and easy to clean because of it’s resistance against solvents and dirt. It is guaranteed not to leave any ghost marks or residues behind even after using liquid chalk time after time making it ideal to use for frequently changing situations such as a kitchen or playroom chalkboard. The magnetic properties are strong enough to hold paperwork in place securely whilst you can write list and reminders amongst it all.
