  • Message on a Mug. Turn your mug into a chalkboard art canvas. You can use chalkboard spray paint to cover your mugs or simply get those chalkboard adhesive paper sheets and wrap them around the mugs. After you have covered your mug with a chalkboard surface, use your liquid chalk markers to individually label each mug for every customer who comes in. You can put messages such as "Smile" and “Have a Great Day!” or an inspiring quote. Make the messages  even more personal for your most faithful customers, such as “Welcome Back, Mr. Smith!” or “Enjoy Your Coffee, Ms. Smith!"
  • Sandwich Surprise. Make that sandwich more appealing with chalkboard labels. Simply cut small pieces of chalkboard paper or vinyl sheets and attach them to a toothpick or anything else that allows you to stick the label on top of the sandwich. Grab those liquid chalk markers and jot messages or draw brightly colored designs on the labels. Customers will light up when you serve your sandwiches with messages such as “Enjoy Your Meal,” or just with a fancy label showing the sandwich name, like “BLT,” “Ham & Egg” or “Club Sandwich.” You can even just put a simple smiley face on the label to make your customers’ day brighter.
  • Make My Dish. This one is really simple yet very artistic. All you need to do is grab those liquid chalk markers and start jotting quotes, messages, artful designs and dish labels on each plate of food you serve.
