Blackboards for Days!
Blackboard mockups and effects are perfect for backgrounds, overlays, or to create eye-catching displays.

The playfulness of this dual chalk and chalkboard action will cover most of your needs. Designed specifically for making signs in Photoshop, the combo includes a chalk drawing action, as well as a green or black chalkboard mockup.

We like to keep things as simple as possible here. If you’re creating a chalkboard sign in Photoshop and want to add a few arrows without actually making them, then you should keep this collection on hand. The arrows are numerous and varied, offering realistic accents to your creations.
What makes this freebie so amazing is that it was crafted using a real piece of slate. The slate was scanned and then digitally adjusted to create the gorgeous texture you see in this background. All that’s needed is your chalk images and text!
You can adjust almost every aspect of these chalk solutions. The customizable chalkboard generator gives you the power to adjust texture, color, and even the style of the wood. Then you can add your designs and call it a day!
We’ve given you multiple free chalkboard options. You can use one of those with this free chalk hand lettering to create the perfect chalkboard designs. The download comes with shaded and normal options, so you can vary your lettering.
This very grungy blackboard would work as the perfect background for web design. Even with the shading, it is very obviously a chalkboard and will add just the subtle feeling you want.
