So if you remember in my last post (SEE HERE) I talked about my order from Mabel’s Labels for my son for preschool this week. Well, I decided to also get him a chalkboard sign to hold for his 1st day of school picture on Tuesday. Of course I thought about doing this such last minute, so at midnight on Friday, I started searching Etsy to see if I could find someone to create one in such a short amount of time.
I came across Harpers Halos. Tamara has a store on Etsy with several pre-made chalkboard designs. I emailed her right away, and she replied very quickly and said she would be able to work with my deadline. Since all of her designs are already pre-designed, all you have to do is purchase the design you like. Then in the notes at the payment section add in the details you want on your chalkboard (ie. Name, Age, School, etc) It was so easy!
Once she has completed your order she will then send you a proof to approve. After it has been approved you then take the high resolution image to your local copy store to print it! That’s it! You’re done! What’s great about printing it yourself is that there is no shipping charge!
Harpers Halos does all kinds of chalkboard designs. Not only does she do first day of school signs she also does birthday’s & baby announcements. Here are some of my favourites:
First Day of School Chalkboard Sign– $5.59 CAD. Comes in Sizes 8 x 10, 11 x 14, 16 x 20
Birthday Chalkboard Sign– $16.77 CAD Comes in Size 16. x20
Pregnancy Announcement Chalkboard Sign– $5.59 Comes in Sizes: 8 x 10, 11 x 14 and 16 x 20
In addition to chalkboard signs she also sells headbands and clip sets. They come in sizes according to age, so make sure you specify which size you would like at checkout. Unfortunately, at this time she only ships to the US, so for all my Canadian followers it’s a sad day 🙁 Hopefully in the future she will start shipping to Canada because I want a bunch!! Headbands start at $4.47 US
Here are some of my favourites.
