5 Best Chalk Markers To Create Amazing Signs and Designs

Have you admired the chalk signs adorning your favorite coffee shop? Chances are the design wasn't made with the same chalk sticks you used as a kid, but with chalk markers. These creative utensils provide the same chalk effect with a paint-like pigment that can be used on almost any smooth surface.

If this type of art intrigues you, then all you need to get started is the right set. Most chalk markers are water-based, meaning you can remove any design you make on a non-porous surface with just a wet cloth. We've put together a selection of the five best chalk marker set brands, including colorful sets and individual utensils.
