Framing your chalkboard makes it look even better. We recommend that all our chalkboards be framed. It adds weight and definition that draws the eye to it’s contents. If you can, frame every time. Imagine art in a gallery without a frame.
Chalkboard Sign Framing
All our frames are hand made for each chalkboard. Our in-house framer uses 2.25″x 3/4″ vertical grain west coast fir in a mortise and tenon joining for a strong, clean, commercial quality frame. On larger chalkboards where more rigidity is required we add a 1/4″ backing board. Fir will slowly age in color to a reddish brown tan.( the fir is collected from local forests, kiln dried and milled locally on Vancouver , Island)
Hand rubbed polyurethane is applied to the framing for protection. This finish will age and produce a beautiful, orange brown look with time. Stains, Spar Varnish (for additional protection against the elements) and paints are additional in charge/lead times. If you need a different wood (barn board, oak, pine etc.) or type/style of framing just let us know and we will look into it.
All our framing is custom and can be any width, style or color.
