Cafe Sign with Waterproof Chalk Markers

In Portland, Oregon there is a cafe called Little River Cafe, owned by Thierry Pasquiou. A little over a year ago Thierry purchased an A-Frame chalkboard with regular chalk to advertise his specials. The cafe was looking for a sidewalk sign to draw people in. As some would know, the weather in Oregon is usually rainy, so you could imagine what his A-frame board looked like on those rainy days!  As Theirry said, “Every time it rained it got washed away or on nice busy days, some kids would brush their fingers and ruined the nice hand writing.”  The Little River Cafe needed waterproof chalk markers.  They just had no idea they were even available.

Thierry was ready to give up and buy a completely different frame that he could use with markers. Then he came across our website, and couldn’t be happier.  “Not only you can use them on real chalkboards, they are truly weather resistant, the Oregon weather has proved it. The rain actually makes them even shinier… proof that it works!” Waterproof Zig markers will only wash off with an ammonia based cleaner. This resulted in no worries about the rain or kids wiping off his sign. Theirry even overheard a couple walking by talking about the Pumpkin Spice latte. It was advertised on his sign and they walked right in to order. If the chalk he had been using had been wiped off, the customers might have never stopped in to taste the delicious drink.
