    I’m happy to write that as soon as I received this item I put it to use, and that was by opening the rest of my other packages that come from Amazon and other stores, since I hate taking out my good but too strong utility knife from its leather pouch, so to have this handy on my desk ready for ANYTHING that needs light cutting such as the packages or letters, these worked great and they are Snap-On brand so I’m very happy.

    Other thoughts: The one thing that it sort of bothered me is that when I read the “Made in” part I was disappointed that these are NOT made in the good ol’ U.S.A but Taiwan instead. I was under the impression that all Snap-On tools were U.S.A made but it doesn’t makes a difference as far as the functionality of this item, just wish it were made in the U.S., I would gladly pay extra $$$ to have that “Made in U.S.A” stamp on it though.

    Overall: great tool, would recommend.

    Forget Your Doubts – This Stuff Is Great, December 16, 2010

    This review is from: Chalkboard Contact Paper, 18″ x 6′

    Other reviewers have commented that this is nothing but black contact paper. This is true – it IS black contact paper. When you first take it out of the package, you feel it and think that it feels NOTHING like a chalkboard and that there is NO WAY ON EARTH that it is going to take chalk well. Disappointment and resentment may well up inside you. But take heart! This stuff is actually fantastic, and takes chalk like a CHARM.

    There are a couple of secrets to getting it to work just like a regular chalkboard. The first is quite intuitive: make sure you apply it carefully to a very smooth surface. I don’t think a textured wall will work well. Alas, I have quite textured walls in my house, and I wanted to use it as wallpaper for a small section of my daughter’s room. Well, I scrapped that idea and applied it to a large piece of masonite board (you know, the stuff that is often used for pegboard, but without the rows of holes). This masonite board (Hardboard Masonite Panel- 18x24x1/8 Inch) is VERY smooth on both sides (although the stuff you get at the hardware store is often very rough and fiberous on the other side). Proper application should also include taking the time to remove any bubbles that arise under the surface; the paper is slightly repositionable, or you can use the side of a credit card or ever-popular and-extraordinarily-useful-for-all-sorts-of-things scraper such as Nylon Pan Scrapers (Set of 2), to gently (GENTLY!) rub the bubbles out.

    The second secret is less intuitive. When you first try to draw on the stuff with chalk, it will seem like it is not working at all. The chalk might barely show up, or it may not draw smoothly. More disappointment and resentment may flood you. HOWEVER, most chalkboards come with instructions that say to color (with chalk, obviously) all over the board and then erase it before the first time you try to use it “for real”. Do this! Rub with the side of the chalk (evenly and lightly will do it) all over the board – and then erase it using a regular felt chalkboard eraser like the Alex Felt Chalk Board Eraser with Wooden Grip, DRY paper towel, or similar. For reasons I cannot explain, this makes chalkboards “take” the chalk much more smoothly. You may have to repeat this step one more time, but after this, I think you will find that the chalkboard paper does in fact work JUST LIKE a REAL CHALKBOARD!! Yay! (They call this step “curing” the chalkboard, and it is necessary for ALL chalkboards, if you really want to prep the surface well – go ahead, google “curing chalkboard” and see what you get!)

    Your chalkboard paper should now work beautifully. Mine works with all sorts of colored chalks, such as Colored Chalk (16), or even Colored Drawing Chalk 24-Stick Pack, or similar. Even regular sidewalk chalk, like Melissa & Doug 10 Jumbo Triangular Chalk Sticks.

    Or, if your chalkboard is for your child(ren), surprise him/her/them with I Can Draw People (Usborne Playtime), I Can Draw Animals (Kid Kits), or similar kits from Usborne, which include a nifty instruction book and jumbo colored chalks.

    So, to sum up, for perfect results from your chalkboard contact paper:

    1) Apply it carefully to a very smooth surface, being sure to get the bubbles out.
    2) Cure it by coloring it all over with the side of a piece of chalk and then erasing it, two times, with a DRY eraser.

    Now ENJOY! After this, I would be very surprised to hear that you were not completely satisfied with the product. (And I do NOT work for the company that sells it, either!) :-)

    This review is from: Chalkboard Contact Paper, 18″ x 6′

    I was worried when I purchased this that I would end up with a flimsy piece of contact paper that would either resist chalk or soak it in too well, resulting in permanent lines. Neither worry came to pass… this paper is awesome! Much faster than painting, much cheaper than a traditional board, and easy to cut and place. I’ve been toying with several diff. shapes and I think my kids will enjoy this purchase for years to come!

    Great value, October 7, 2007
    This review is from: Chalkboard Contact Paper, 18″ x 6′

    This is the cheapest way to convert a wall into a blackboard. However, this is basically just a sticky sheet of vinyl, so you will feel the bumps on the wall as you write. Still, that’s not too much of a problem, and the value is overall very good.
