Oh hi! I'm Rachelle, the maker/owner behind Chalkboard Chique.

The idea to create chalkboard items began shortly after I got engaged in 2014 and started the wedding planning process.

I’ve always loved crafting, and like many brides, I was so excited to have an opportunity to put my special DIY touch on our wedding. I started with making chalkboard wine glasses as wedding favours and after attempting 4 ways to do it, I finally found a process that looked sharp, clean, and something that our guests would actually use again.

I thought I would use my experience to help other brides to avoid any further Pinterest-fails and listed the glasses on Etsy.

After a few months, I expanded from glasses to offer handmade and custom chalkboards from homes, business' and weddings, which grew the business exponentially. I quickly overtook my dad's garage with my small project-turned-business and after a little more than a year, my husband and I bought our first home and coverted our garage to accomodate my official "side-hustle'!

Why We’re One of a Kind

I pride myself on offering a local and handmade option for something considered to be a functional product for business' and families. I try to bring a sense of fun with seasonal colours (think teal, plum, mustard, and navy for Fall 2017!) to compliment our standard finishes of walnut, grey, white-wash, and ebony, while still being modern and polished.

Whether it be for an upcoming wedding, a decorative addition to someone's home, or a standout piece for a business, there is real fulfillment and a sense of pride from making something with a bit of elbow grease and love and sharing it with others.

Return Policy

All items are final sale. A lot of love, labour, and attention to detail is put into each handmade item to make sure it’s the best quality possible. If you aren't sure before you buy, or want to chat, we'd be happy to help to make sure you know exactly what you are getting. The only exception to the return policy is if an item is broken in transit (see below).

Broken In Transit

Due to the fragile nature of the items being shipped I do my best to include LOTS of bubble wrap and padding. If for some reason an item is broken in transit, please send a message within 5 days of delivery with a photo of the broken item AND the package it came in. I will then initiate a damage claim with the post office immediately. Unfortunately, Canada Post requires the recipient to answer a few questions so I kindly ask you to look out for this information in your email inbox.

Customers will be offered the following options:

·Refund for the cost of the items broken

·Re-shipment of the number of items broken by regular post

*** I cannot initiate the refund/re-shipment process if customer does not respond to the Canada Post case.***
