Using chalk is one of our favorite childhood pastimes. It brings back many heart-warming memories. Whether is was our teachers who used them on chalkboards (before SmartBoards were around) or drawing on sidewalks to play hopscotch – chalks allows you to draw on many surfaces. There are also the memories of the mess that regular chalk caused with its dust and how boring the colors looked on the surfaces. The truth is that plain old regular chalk is just not the best option anymore. Now, there are liquid chalk markers which are a much better alternative.

Benefits of Liquid Chalk Markers

  1. DUSTLESS: Chalk Pens are dust-less, therefore causing less of a mess while using them. Most chalk produces a lot of mess and dust which some children may even be allergic to.
  2. VIBRANT: Regular chalk has dull and boring colors. Alternatively, chalk markers produce vibrant and fluorescent colors (specifically the Kassa brand) which are great for attention-grabbing chalkboards or just beautiful art work.
  3. VERSATILE: Liquid chalk markers write on most non-porous surfaces, meaning they will work not only on chalkboards, but also: glass, windows, ceramics, plastics and more! Unfortunately, regular chalk will not work on many of these surfaces.
  4. EASY TO CORRECT: Erasing or correcting regular chalk results in smearing and general ghosting. Liquid Chalk Markers are easy to wipe with no ghosting which makes correcting your work a lot easier and cleaner.
