Featured Artist: @SignJay

We’re wrapping up chalk markers and chalkboard month at Marker Supply with another featured artist!!

Chalk Marker Terms & Tips

Since it’s “chalk marker month” here at Marker Supply, we figured it would be a good time to go over a few basic details of these types of markers to help you pick which ones are right for you!!
