Signage might not be the first detail you think about when it comes to your wedding décor, but it's a great opportunity to add a bespoke personal touch to different areas of your Wedding Venue.
One of a Kind Chalkboards design bespoke handwritten chalkboards that can be used throughout your Wedding Venue to show your guests the timeline of your Wedding Day, the Wedding Table Plan or even where to find the props for the Photobooth during your Evening Wedding Reception!
Judy can personally customise these chalkboards to reflect your unique personalities, whether that be including imagery, Wedding dates or colours.
You will find many of Judy’s designs placed around The Artisan Wedding Market, to showcase the different
handwritten fonts she offers, and these will all be available for you to browse on the day
Tell me about your Business… and a little bit about YOU - How, why and when you started
Hi my name is Judy and I am the designer and creator of One of a kind Chalkboards.
I live with my husband and teenage son and recently our 2 older children have blessed us with 2 gorgeous grand-babies!
Last year I took early retirement from my job as an NHS Nurse because it felt like the right time to start a new chapter in my life.
How did you learn your craft/skill & How does the design process work
I have been writing chalkboards for a few years for friends and Family. With their encouragement I have just launched my business.
For as long as I can remember, people have commented on my handwriting. I have gone on to develop my skills through self-learning.
My unique selling point is that whereas most chalkboards sold on websites use a standard font, my clients can choose the font they want and add special little touches that mean something personally to them.
The design process simply begins with a fun discussion with the couple. We will talk about the boards required, wording, font style and ideas they have in mind.
Once decisions have been made, I will draw up some rough sketches and send them to the couple for their thoughts.
Once they are happy I will begin creating the boards. Boards are ready within 2-3 weeks.
Tell us about your studio/workspace? Can couples visit you?
I create all the boards from the comfort of my own home in Kidderminster.
Discussions with the couple can take place at the couples homes or via email, text or calls.
What do you love most about working in or designing products for the wedding industry?
I love working in the Wedding Industry because each wedding is unique, and I take great pleasure in creating signs for the couple that are bespoke and reflect their personalities.
I mainly cover the Worcestershire area and working locally can save my clients hours of searching on the internet.
Who would be your dream client? Dream collaboration?
My dream clients are couples who like to have lots of fun discussing their ideas and then trust me to create something very special for them
