- Bringing brush and paint together since 1988


The immediate impact of chalk art has a charm not found in any other kind of medium. It's perfect for changeable menu boards and all kinds of events and occasions such as weddings, birthdays and celebrations. The use of traditional fonts in a simple combination of chalk on black background always adds unique touch. Whether you need something permanent or temporary, we can embellish office spaces, market places and all kinds of venues - see examples above. Clients include
