We make these out of old window sashes and use the weights as ballast to make them operate up and down. These are the ones we made for The Able Baker in Maplewood (great coffee, scones and whatever else is on their daily menu, just read the blackboards).  Here they hang above the counter and cash register. They pull them down to change the daily menu.

For commercial applications or for your home. You can hang them on your kitchen wall, in your mudroom, office, man cave, shop, wherever you’re looking to add that unusual Pop!  All shapes, sizes, and colors available. weights and pulleys are customized for each application.  We also make the blackboards as static pieces for installation directly on the wall.  Write for consultation regarding your specific needs or project.

Also as bulletin boards and whiteboards.
