In this job we will be designing the menu board in Photoshop but the same steps apply with any design program that allows you to work with PDF files.

Select a background for your menu board. In this case we are using the rustic timber panels with blackboard area. The backgrounds files arrive with a PDF and a JPEG. If you are working in Photoshop open the PDF as this is in layers.

Download the artwork you would like to use in your design. Here we are using:
Caesar & Potato Salad with Dressing

Steak, Chips & Gravy

Seafood & Grilled Fish & Chips.
We have all the images open in Photoshop ready to combine and design.

Here we have dragged the 3 images onto the rustic background and have combined
the artwork to create a unique design.
The design is a visual representation of what will be on the menu. 

Now the design is finished we have added the menu, the clients logo and a header to complete the menu board. Now save the file as a PDF and send to your local sign writer to print and mount onto composite panel. Ask them to print on matt adhesive vinyl with a matt laminate for best chalkboard results.

Finished Menu board framed and installed.
