The best boards to show off your menu

Blackboards and noticeboards are common place in restaurants, pubs and cafes and have been for many years. Competition in the hospitality industry is fierce with every business owner wanting to retain and gain more customers than the next. One way to make your establishment stand out from the crowd is with a stunning menu, and what better way to show it off than with a restaurant menu board.

At Moores, we have been making blackboards for decades but it is only more recently that we have expanded into the printed blackboards business. You might like to go for a more generic menu board as pictured here to show off your ‘specials’, wine list or dessert menu. These style boards are great for pubs, rustic restaurants and funky bistros. Your menu can be changed as often as you like – just be sure to get a good sign writer in if you’re not the arty type as there is nothing worse than a badly drawn blackboard!

Many restaurants actually prefer to get their own custom made blackboard designed. You get something subtle with your logo printed stylishly at the top or in the bottom corners, or you could go the whole hog and get something really ‘out there’ made for you. For example if you run a sea food restaurant, you could get a blackboard in the shape of a crab made up! You could even experiment with different colour boards and maybe even clashing colours for a really funky design.

In addition to wall blackboards, table-top blackboards are fantastic for up-selling to customers. Your coffee list, starter menu or details of any special offers can just sit on their tables tempting them in to stay longer (and spend more money of course!). Tabletop blackboards come in a great range of sizes and colours to suit any style of restaurant, pub or café and again they can be printed with your logo or any writing that you require.

No establishment is complete without showing off their menu and for many the blackboard is a simple, cost effective and stylish way to do this. Why not take a look at our website to see the restaurant menu boards we have on offer.
