    Does anyone know if there is a material that's very thin that can be written on like a chalkboard(actual chalk)? I'm looking for something to adhere to PVC A-Frames. I have a customer that wants 10 A-Frames and wants one side with chalkboard and the other to features digital prints. I need to use the cheap PVC Sign-cade units so I can meet her budget.

    I know there's a paint out there that's made specifically for dry erase markers to be used on it.

    Why not just use the chalkboard paint? I don't know if it will stick directly to the PVC but you could always paint something else and stick that to the frame.

    You can buy chalkboard vinyl as well. I believe Signwarehouse carries it.

    Chalkboard / Blackboard vinyl,, I use it a lot for menus' where prices change frequently and on "A" frames. It's thicker than normal vinyl so you may need to add a bit more downforce. You can also buy liquid chalk pens to write on it with.
