Acme get Crafty making School Notice Boards

We got our craft skills out for the task of making some Christmas school notice boards. We channelled our inner primary school student to re-create a class of art projects on 3 boards for various age groups. The commission was fun but took a while to get the glitter out the studio afterwards. We have created a range of school classroom wall dressing boards – these had the most pompoms and glitter on them.

Chalkboards without any messy chalk!

Acme Graphics have started a range of blackboards or chalkboards that Acme create to look like aged blackboards for restaurant, bar and cafe sets. The blackboards are aged in the design stage and printed on vinyl + mounted on black foamex. The chalkboards look like well used blackboards and can have any text in any font without any of the chalk or mess and hassle of chalk pens!
