Tell us a little bit about your business…

I specialize in custom, hand-drawn chalkboard art for your special event.

 

What are you known for?

Everything is custom and the process is super easy! I’ve developed a really simple process to make sure my clients get exactly what they want. The best part is that I’ve done so many wedding chalkboards (upwards of 500 now), with all of them being unique, I am confident I’ll match anyone’s style perfectly.

 

What do you like the most about the event industry?

I love that every event, every wedding, every person is one-of-a-kind. I don’t particularly like doing something twice. So having the ability to create something new every time is inspiring.

What have others said about your business?

This is my favourite quote from a client who has since become a friend:

“WOW!!! It would have been a BIG mistake not to hire Vicki to make my chalkboard dreams come true. I bit the bullet and contacted her after many attempts of drawing out my signage… myself and by bridesmaids have realized that chalkboard art is really not as easy as one would think! I thought it was going to be way too expensive so thought I’d just get a quote on what I needed, see if it was doable in my budget constraints… the result? HER PRICES ARE AMAZING FOR THE QUALITY OF WORK SHE DOES!!!!! She is so talented and hands down has been my favourite vendor to work with… her love for her art is reflected in her creativity. I highly recommend Chalkboards & Co. for any and all chalkboard art you need for your wedding!!!”

 

What makes your business unique?

I specialize in chalkboards! That’s probably as niche as you can get. And chalkboards can be rustic, modern, elegant – anything! And that’s what I love about them!

 

Can you tell us a time when you knew you were in the right industry?

I started out doing chalkboards for local bars and restaurants until a bride named Kayla asked me to do her seating chart on a chalkboard. She was SUCH a dream and I loved the fact that I could add so much to her special day. I wasn’t just helping someone sell beer or sandwiches – I was helping them create the best day of their lives!

What do you usually tell people before an event?

Make it yours. Make your event say something about you. Make it absolutely special and people will talk about it forever.

 

If you were stranded on an Island and could only bring one item, what would it be?

If the island had caves and rocks I could draw on – then chalk!

 

Why did you join Event Core?  

Because I’m in awe of the talents and skills of every single member!

 

In five words or less, sum up your company’s motto!

One-of-a-kind, every time!
