Let's Talk Trends: Series by Printable Wisdom Design, learn about the new trends in the graphic design, typography, and fashion world!


The trend I want to focus on today? Chalkboards! It seems like "chalkboard" style designs are popping up everywhere lately, from Etsy, to big-box stores, to local mom-and-pop shops.

What's so great about this trend anyways? It's a juxtaposition of opposites! Vintage yet modern, neutral but eye-catching It's customizable! The beauty of chalkboards are that they can be changed out on a whim Chalkboards can adapt to any decor - rustic and shabby, or modern and chic They are GREAT for weddings (and wedding season is right around the corner!)

For the longest time, I was hesitant to try my hand at creating chalkboard style printables - it's much easier to design when you have color and illustrations to fall back on. Chalkboard style printables make you focus entirely on typography - that's tough!

I finally bit the bullet, though, and designed some chalkboard style printables I'm really happy with! Some of these, you can already find in my shop, and some will be there soon. Check out all of these other awesome ways the chalkboard trend is being used by designers on Etsy as well!
