A Square Dance & A Platypus

our crazy family story of 
Plata Chalkboards

The Square Dance

It all started with our celebration of my in-laws 50th wedding anniversary. Family gathered from all over the county for a big old fashioned square dance.

We had a lot to celebrate! After a long treatment for breast cancer, my amazing doctors at Mass General Hospital had given me a clean bill of health- a gift like none other. Early cancer detection saved my life, this is why we proudly support The National Breast Cancer Foundation.

The Photo Booth

We decided to create a photobooth with lots silly props to take fun photos to remember this extraordinary day.

One of the props was a small chalkboard sign. 

The Little Chalkboard

After the party, I found the little sign and wrote Merry Christmas on it- I absolutely loved it! I loved coming home to my homemade signs- it felt so personal and un-generic, but it got tedious to redo every time it rained and my handwriting is not the best, but that's when I had my AHA moment! 

What if the stencils were magnetic and the pens were somehow waterproof but erasable- then I could create beautiful custom signs that could be changed throughout the year! 

Plata the Platypus

I loved creating my holiday chalkboards signs, but it was just a fun hobby until I lost my job. Like any family, we were devastated, but we took it as a "sign" that we needed to make our chalkboard business a reality! 

We all chipped in and each had our own part, but we could not decide upon a name. At yet another family meeting, my daughter brought her best friend and constant companion, a stuffed purple platypus named Plata. That's when it struck us- our chalkboards are waterproof and unique just like our beloved Plata! 

QVC/HSN Big Find

Plata Chalkboards and 2400 other companies took a chance and entered a 2 minute video to the QVC and HSN Big Find Product Pitch Competition. We were stunned, thrilled and so nervous to present our products to their panel of judges. We thought our chalkboard craft kits were special, but would the judges? They did! They presented us with the Big Ticket and invited us to join the family of HSN brands! It was a such a joyful moment- the kids danced around the room and we let it soak in this amazing opportunity before us!

We've Got Answers!

Do you have questions?


How do I clean my chalkboard?

Cleaning your chalkboard is easy! Visit our How-To Guides for more information.

  • Spray or pour rubbing alcohol on your chalkboard (Lysol®️ Disinfectant Spray also works with amazing results).

  • Let sit 5 minutes

  • Rub with our sponge or a Mr. Clean®️ Magic Eraser (or generic version)

  • Rinse with water or a damp rag

  • Dry with a soft rag.

Presto- a clean canvas for your next holiday sign!

Will my chalkboard rust?

Our chalkboards are treated with special coatings to prevent rust and make them resistant to water. However, we advise against leaving your chalkboard in puddles of water or snow and suggest bringing it indoors during periods of high winds.

Can I hang the chalkboard?

Yes! Our chalkboard signs have been designed to hang in either a vertical or horizontal orientation. Each chalkboard comes with welded D rings in all four corners. To hang the chalkboard, just wrap a wire around the D rings to create a hanging chalkboard sign.

What is the material of the chalkboards?

Our magnetic chalkboards are manufactured to meet our high standards of quality. They are made from cold-rolled steel and coated with a porcelain enamel that prevents stains and ghosting from chalk markers.

Chalk Paint Pens

Will the chalk pens run in the rain?

Our pens are specially designed to prevent your wonderful chalkboard art from running or smudging in the rain.

What is the age range of the Chalk Pens? Are they safe for children?

Our Plata Paint Pens are completely safe to use and ideal for all ages, 3 and up. 

They are dust-free, non-toxic, and have passed safety tests conducted by Intertek Testing Laboratories to conform with ASTM 4236 and EN72.

Can I use the chalk pens on other surfaces?

Yes! Plata Paint Pens can be used on a variety of surfaces. Our paint pens can be erased from hard non-porous surfaces such as rocks, glass, varnished wood, and ceramics. However, on soft surfaces like fabric, unfinished wood, and paper, our pens are permanent.

  • Decorating t-shirts, sneakers & Halloween costumes

  • Painting rocks

  • Coloring Easter eggs 

  • Painting pumpkins

Magnetic Chalkboard Stencils

Are the stencils reusable?

Yes! Our stencils are designed to be durable, flexible, and reusable. They are made with a material that is three times thicker than regular plastic Mylar stencils, which gives them a sturdy and defined edge that works great with paint pens.

What should I do if a stencil gets bent?

Always store your stencils flat. If your stencil does gets bent, here is how to fix it:

  • Place stencil on your ironing board

  • Cover stencil with a t-shirt or piece of cotton

  • Turn your iron on the lowest heat setting

  • Quickly run your iron over the cotton covered stencil until the crease disappears

  • Let cool on a flat surface

Are Plata Chalkboards patented?

Yes! Our family is a proud holder of US Patent NO. 11,117,273 Method of Stenciling with a Magnetic Stenciling Apparatus.

Can I use the magnetic stencils on other surfaces?

Yes! The magnetic stencils can be used on any magnetic steel surface, such as:

  • mailboxes

  • Planters & flower pots 

  • Watering cans 

  • Milk cans

You can use on non-metal surfaces such as wood, by simply using a spray stencil adhesive.
