Use light colors for writing the menu on the chalkboard because dark colors may not build everyone’s interest in reading it. First, write the restaurant’s name in the top center of the chalkboard, then mention the special items on your menu, with a bit of detail about them and their prices.
MAKE IT CATCHY
