Emmett, our laser engraving machine and in-house scribe, allows you to add your own story to many of our objects.

Choose one of our customization options – either a name or a quote (though you may add whatever text you desire to these areas as long as it within our character limits). The diagrams below show the placement and size of the text depending on your customization selection. Please include your text to be engraved in the cart notes. Be sure to double-check your wording, spelling and punctuation for errors before submitting your order. Customized objects are not returnable. We use the Garamond font for our engravings.

Chalk Pad

$20.00 - $85.00

The Chalk Pad will quickly replace your many reminders scribbled on scraps of paper that constantly end up lost. Reminiscent of an old schoolhouse slate, it is great for grocery lists, sketches, messages and plans. Wee children can spill out their imaginations on this black board. It is a blank slate that is waiting to be filled.

Each chalk pad will vary slightly in grain and indications of the wood’s prior use.

*Koh-I-Noor chalk pencils bear a label which reads: “Warning: This product contains a chemical known to the State of California to cause cancer.” The chemical in question is titanium dioxide. Valued for its bright white pigment, titanium dioxide is used as the whitening agent not only in chalk but also in sunscreen, toothpaste, skim milk and white tattoo ink.
