Hi everyone and boy am I excited to share something really cool with you today! When I was first contacted to see if I wanted to review
I admit that I was skeptical….my first question was, “Just exactly what ARE ChalkboardDogs! ?
From steadfastfriends.com, ChalkboardDogs!:
are large, repositionable chalkboard canine silhouettes that can be mounted on any flat surface such as a wall, door or refrigerator. You can write on them with regular chalk or with Chalk Ink®.
There are over 50 dog breeds to choose from!
The material that is used for ChalkboardDogs! is eco-friendly, it is a chalkboard film coated with REPOSITIONABLE, removable adhesive.
When mine arrived, it was rolled up and my first thought was “Uh-oh, will I rip this when I attempt to remove the silhouette from the backing?” Not a chance! I am all paws when it comes to these things (and this is Dakota’s MOM talking), and if I can do it, YOU CAN DO IT!
I picked a Shetland Sheepdog (what else?) as my silhouette and removing it from the poly sleeve backing couldn’t have been easier!
To apply, simply remove the silhouette from the poly sleeve and peel off the white backing. Carefully apply the silhouette to a clean, dry, flat surface taking care to be sure that any small bubbles or folds are flattened. That’s it!
Here is how mine looks after I wrote on it. If you can’t read it, it says “Everyone loves Shelties” and there is a reminder from Dakota to “BUY BONES!”
The size varies between breeds due to the orientation of the silhouette, but on average, the ChalkboardDogs! are 22″ long and anywhere from 15″ to 30″ high.
Mine works perfectly in our kitchen, but as I mentioned above, should I wish to move it to another room I can! Once again, the message can be wiped clean with an eraser, damp cloth or sponge and you can write on it with chalk or special
If you use your imagination there are countless things you can write on your ChalkboardDogs! silhouette! Everything from:
- Grocery lists
- Have the kids draw on it
- Vet Appointments
- Just DOODLE!
- Phone Numbers
- Special Holidays
- Just to say “I Love You”
- These would make GREAT graduation gifts for students heading off to college in the fall! They can have a reminder of their canine friend in any room that they choose!
The options are endless!
Another thing I absolutely love about www.steadfastfriends.com is that:
