    L O V E!

    To say that I love my Plata Chalkboard would be an understatement. I enjoy being able to create the signs I want, when I want, with whatever message I want. I’ve had my sign for over two years and am constantly getting comments on just how cool it is. Now my two year old loves to “help mama” make signs too! Soon enough she will have her own! BONUS: the Facebook group is an amazing place to share signs, ideas, and cheer each other’s creativeness on!

    Porch Sign

    My Mama gifted me the large porch sign for Christmas. It is such a great gift! My daughter (10) helped me decorate it right away! I think we will be fighting over who gets to draw on it next! ;) I love how it is completely customizable and easy to decorate. She gave me a few of the stencil bundles to go with it as well. I love all the options and I’m already thinking what I can put on it next. It is very high quality, but not so heavy that I can’t handle it myself.

    Hope S. (Brooklyn, US)
    So much easy fun!

    These boards are so much fun and easy to use. Can’t wait to change it month after month!

    I love your product!

    I have bought all of the boards and every size and font of the letters that Plata sells and love all of them. Christmas decorating is now inside and outside using their products.

    Pure fun.

    Got my new chalk board and decorated it the day after Thanksgiving. It was very easy to use and what I like is you don't have to have cookie cutter decorations. You can have something unique. You can put what's in your heart. Thank you Plata Chalkboards.
