Which wooden pavement sign is best for you?

Choose your wooden pavement sign with care - where will you primarily be placing your chalk signboard? If you are displaying outside, ensure that choose a model with a fully weatherproof blackboard surface to avoid your designs washing out in the rain. Heavy-duty boards are best outside in windy positions whereas the lightweight versions are brilliant if your board to be easily movable.

What sort of chalk pen should I use with a wood a-board?

Avoid using fine line pens for anything other than outlining on a decent sized blackboard pavement sign as the line produced is delicate and easily gets lost. Wet wipe pens are great for indoor use and we recommend waterproof chalk pens for outdoor use. Check out our chalk pen section for more information, options and ideas!


It can be difficult to visualise the actual size of an item from measurements alone - here's some help with choosing the right size wooden pavement sign:

  • The Wooden A-Board 46x68cm has a chalkboard surface area slightly larger than A2 paper size
  • The Tall Wooden A Board 60x120cm is about the same width as a portrait A1 poster and just under double the height. This is a substantial board - at 15kg, this wooden a-board is very wind-resistant for outdoor displays (although do bring them indoors in stormy weather and gales!)
  • At just under A1 poster size, the Chalkboard A-Frame with slot -in black magnetic panels is perfect for promoting lunch and dinner menus
