Welcome to Let's Get Chalky!
Please read this entire listing before purchasing. This listing is for a DIGITAL file in jpeg format, NOTHING IS PHYSICALLY SHIPPED TO YOU. The size recommendation for this design is 16x20. If you have another size preference, please select that size. Please also note this board is for a 1st or 2nd birthday so if you're looking to create for another age, please contact me before purchasing!
The file may be printed on card stock or regular paper and then mounted onto foam board or placed in a frame. Most office supply stores will print the poster and mount it on foam board for you! Some places (like Costco) have a poster board printing option. Again, you will only be receiving a DIGITAL file from me, NOTHING will be physically shipped to you.

I accept payment through Direct Checkout and PayPal. Once payment has been received, I will start making your order (pending I have all of your details for the board). Once an order has been started, there are no cancellations.
Shipping is via EMAIL once the board has been completed. Etsy automatically sends out a shipping notification once an order has been completed. Please read this notification email as it clearly states you have received your order via EMAIL. NOTHING IS PHYSICALLY SHIPPED TO YOU. I ONLY SELL DIGITAL FILES.
Request a cancellation within: 1 hours of purchase
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
Because the boards are custom made, there are no refunds. Once your personalized poster file has been made, I will send you a proof via Etsy. Please double check your proof prior to approving for final release of the file.
Your poster will be created based on the listing design you purchase, unless we had discussed a custom design for you in messages prior to purchase. Once I have sent the proof, revisions can be made to the poster. However if a different design is wanted all together, you will be asked to purchase the desired listing, and I am unable to provide a refund for the poster that you had previously purchased.
NOTHING IS PHYSICALLY SHIPPED TO YOU FROM THIS STORE.
My turnaround time is 4 BUSINESS DAYS. I do not work on the weekends (unless there is a rush order) or on holidays. For example, if you order on a Monday, plan on having your proof (and final file) on that Friday. Sometimes you receive your file earlier but due to being a single business owner and mom of two, I give myself this amount of time.
Please note that my turnaround time begins once ALL information is received.
**BE CERTAIN** of the size that you order (you're able to print it, find a frame for it, etc). Once the proof has been started, you may be subject to an additional fee if you want a different size than ordered.
PLEASE double check the file before printing to avoid extra printing costs. Once printed, I am not responsible for errors since you have had the sample and the final product to look over. If you notice an error prior to printing, please let me know and I am happy to correct it. :)

***PLEASE SEE ADDITIONAL FAQ BELOW
No, this is not a REAL chalkboard, nor will anything be shipped to a mailing address. I make a design as a digital file and send to you as a JPEG file (picture file). You are required to print yourself.
Download the attachment to your desktop. Please note that opening the file on a smart phone or tablet will cause the file to be reduced in size/quality. If forwarding the file to a store or another email address, please do so from your computer. The files I send you are of the highest quality, so if they are pixelated or blurry, you have compromised the file. Please print the size dimension that the file is stated to be. If you want a different size dimension file, you must let me know so I can resize the file for you. This may be an additional fee depending on the design you have chosen.
One, you can just get it printed at any printing and/or frame company. Just be sure to print ‘matte’, otherwise it will lose the ‘chalkboard’ look. It’s best to have it printed on cardstock and go from there. You can place in a frame without glass to enhance the ‘chalk look’ or in a glass frame which will look just as nice (I suggest non-glare glass)
Two, you can go to Costco. They do a thicker poster board for certain sizes. There is a white border on the front which you cannot remove but also gives it a framed look.
Three, you can go to Walgreens, Kinkos or Office Depot and have them print on card stock and mount on foam board. This looks best in my opinion for parties or photos shoots (I've found Office Depot is the cheapest).
My turnaround time is 4 business days for a proof. I do not work weekends or holidays unless an order is rushed. You should plan to order closest to the date needed but also allowing for enough time to print (I suggest ordering 7 days prior to when you need your file). Many places print same day but I would call first. I suggest for last minute orders you also purchase my rush shipping. This is located under "Rush Fees" (there are sections on my Etsy store which you can sort by). This will ensure your file will be delivered by the date needed.
Please note this turnaround time is ONLY for birthday chalkboards.
Yes. I do not ship your item and this is not a real chalkboard. However, all photos shown on my shop are pictures from customers who have printed the boards themselves. The process is very simple if you read through and follow my instructions. I'm also always available via email to discuss any questions or concerns you might have!
