Free Downloadable Chalkboard Backgrounds

Free downloadable chalkboard background

A few fellow letterers have asked about the chalk backgrounds I’ve been using for some recent Pinterest posts. Actually those were created using a stock photo of a chalkboard as the base file and while that’s always an option, I thought I’d try creating a convincing chalkboard image myself (sorry iStock) and make it available here on Foolish Fire.

Download the .zip file here

The folder includes a gray, blue and green version in .jpg format.

I’ll be posting another tutorial soon on how to work with these files to create a reversed chalkboard look out of a sketchbook lettering project.

Hey look…a new Foolish file!

By popular demand we’ve added a set of high-res backgrounds for just a buck ninety-nine. These will work a lot better for anything you intend to print at 8.5×11 and smaller.

    May I use this as a background image for a client project? It’s a non-profit organization.
