One of our favorite clients, Ridgewells Catering, handled the catering at the recent U.S. Open. They came to us with visions of chalkboard-style signage for their various stations and menus, which was a great idea.
We used a handwritten (but not overly stylized) typeface that was easy to read for the majority of the verbiage, with some "sketchy" fonts for other uses. The chalkboard texture looked great with the fonts, and the end result were printed signs that looked like authentic handwritten chalkboard signs!
We also made labels for the buffet items, which were changed out three times a day; we printed those on a 3mil white vinyl material, using Ridgwells' branding and colors.
