Summer is the time of Oceanside trips, unforgettable adventures, non-stop parties, and… large-scale cleaning. One day, when I was going through the old trash in the attic, I stumbled upon a box with chalks that I stole in my school days. Hope you won’t report me to the police, as I got done with school theft long time ago, and you have no proof anyway.

When I opened the box, I could recall the childish excitement of holding a chalk in my hand and scribbling short words with spelling mistakes on the blackboard and asphalt. This art brought me a lot of pleasure back then. Well, the word “art” is a bit of an exaggeration to name my scribblings of those days. Writing neatly with a chalk is not even half as easy as writing with a pen or pencil. The surface is much rougher, chalk can break into pieces, and it’s more difficult to erase flaws from the blackboard than from paper using a pencil rubber. The whole process is like a pain in the ass, right?

But regardless of all the inconveniences, chalkboard typography still looks impressive and will never go out of date. You can use this timeless style in various scenarios, not only in a back-to-school theme but also, say, on menu boards in cafes. In fact, chalk typography is ideal for adding a retro touch to any setting.

While the old days are good, the present day is always better (IMHO). A few decades ago you’d have to sweat over neat writing with chalk a lot. But today, all you need is to install a digital font and write whatever you like with pleasure. Check out the best chalk hand lettering fonts 2017 to come up with creative typography without getting your hands dirty.
