The sign writing experts at ‘The chalk Spot’ take us through a step by step DIY video tutorial for some charmingly hand-written perspex menu place cards for your wedding day! AND…The great thing about them being transparent is you can write with any colour you want to compliment your theme and you can totally personalise your place setting by layering with patterned or textured backgrounds and napkins which will only hi-light your beautiful calligraphy style menu!

Once you are confident with your handwriting ( The Chalk spot book and worksheets have all you need to master this) grab yourself some perspex (readily available from hardware stores) and give this a go!



“For beginners, i would recommend sketching your menu onto paper first and using this as a guide underneath the perspex, giving you something to follow and hopefully stopping any mistake from happening. Practice first as the perspex is slippery and not like writing on paper or wood so it will be worth having a quick go to see how the pen moves across the surface”. Clair at The Chalk Spot
