Jaq Jaq Bird FAQs
What is different about Jaq Jaq Bird Chalks?
ButterStix™ patented is truly one of its kind, it has zero-dust. It is food safe so you can use it on dishes, glasses, containers, lunchboxes etc. Works on most non-porous surface such as dry erase boards, chalk boards, walls, etc. Of course it works on all our chalk related products such as the Chalk A Doodle Book ™. It is not meant to be only for kids, but serious artists use our chalks too.
Can I use traditional chalks on Jaq Jaq Bird Chalk related products?
Yes! you can use traditonal chalks on our products, just don't use side-walk chalks because they will scratch the surface. But, be forewarned, once you use ButterStix™, you won't want to go back!
Help! ButterStix™ will not erase!
Because The ButterStix® has no dust, it might leave "ghost chalk marks" from the oil that is contained in the chalk. You can "cure" the Chalk Table Runner™ by smearing traditional white chalk across the Runner and erase with a dry cloth, then try it with our chalks. Please note, ButterStix® will "ghost" from time to time, but this is a normal, especially after using the chalks repeatedly on the same surface.
When used on Chalkboard Paint or Chalkboard Painted surfaces, Butterstix® can leave a permanent "shadowing" when removed. Although depending on the surface, it can sometimes be removed completely with a Magic Eraser, (sold with our Gray Chalk Table Runner) sometimes it will permanently leave a remnant of your project. Nowadays, there are many different types of decorative "chalkboards". As many would seem as if they are non-porous, unless the fame is actually some material like a slate or metal, most likely they have been covered with a chalkboard paint-like material at the manufacturer. Therefore, it almost always can leave the shadowing behind. Please keep that in mind if you use them in your home.
Are the ButterStix® and Chalk Books patented?
Chalk Books has been submitted for utility patent in USA and internationally. Yes, on the Butterstix® it sure is and we are in the middle of receiving our international patent.
