    I was thinking of using black paper on my bulletin boards (so the papers on it will really stand out). What color of lettering do you think will go well on the black (for my titles)?

    I have really not found any colors that didn't go well with my black (fabric) backgrounds. You are right, in that the items posted pop. I would probably stay away from darker colors, like purple, navy, & brown, just so it wouldn't look like a bruise, lol, but other than that, anything goes!

    I think any color will look great! I have a black/yellow with my bee theme that looks nice. Pretty much any bright color will look good with the black paper.

    Ok cool! I'm pretty excited because it seems "different" then what most people have in my school. I think it's fun to go in and personalize the classroom. I am also using some of the "boho birds" themed items

    I've had at least one black bulletin board for a while. I love the way purple looks on black, as long as it's a bright purple, not too dark. I've also used royal blue, green, and yellow.

    Whenever I use a dark bulletin board paper, I try to use a bright border because it stands out really nicely against it. I really like black paper with a bright, sunny yellow border and/or letters. I also like to use a bright green

    I always cover my bulletin boards with black (I use plastic tablecloths). I have neon borders and choose lettering to "match" one of the border colours.

    I just put up a black BB yesterday. All the colors look great against such a neutral background. You really can't go wrong, as long as the color isn't too dark. I wanted to use a tablecloth, but Dollar Tree was all out.

    There are letters that go with the Boho Birds line, just in case you wanted to be super matchy, but I think anything would work well. (It looks like they're on backorder, but if you have a teacher store nearby, they may have them in stock.)

    I love black bulletin boards, too! Here are mine, if you want to check them out. :)

    I have all black boards up in my room. They all have blue borders and blue lettering where necessary. I personally like how it all matches and gives a clean look in my otherwise cluttered science room.

    One of my coworkers just was setting up an all black bulletin board and it looks great. She was hanging example art projects and they definitely pop.

    I love the look of a light blue or green letters with black.

    The black paper will fade. If you can afford to get black fabric, it will hold up better. You'll have to change out the paper mid-year.
