The natural wood look has been on trend for a while and doesn't seem to be going anywhere any time soon. The designs in the natural grain make every piece unique and different varieties of stain color diversify the wood even further. Have a casual beach side grille? Go with a light, sand colored wood menu cover to tie in with the beach. On the other hand, you can capitalize on rich, deep walnut shades to bring out the "classy wine cellar" feel of your fine dining establishment. No matter what you choose, wood menu covers are one of the easiest ways to update the look of your restaurant while seamlessly tying in to your already established aesthetic. So what kind of wood products are right for you? Below are some different types of custom wood products that you can choose for your establishment.
Are Wood Marketing Products Right for Your Hospitality Establishment?
June 27, 2017 by Jamie Douglas
Natural, fresh, durable, rustic, distinguished, pure, distinctive. These are all words that can describe wood. At Menu Designs, products made out of wood have always been popular, and this year wood products are shaping up to be more popular than ever. With the popularity of our wood products, we wanted to dedicate this blog post to some of our favorite wood products that our menu design team has created, and can create for you!
Wood and Bamboo Menu Covers
If you are looking for a traditional style menu cover but want a unique look cover material, then a wood or bamboo menu cover is the perfect option for you! You can get the distinctive look of wood with any of the menu insert styles we offer for our menu covers. While our Plaza style is the most popular interior option, opt for a wood menu cover with a Lexington or Riviera interior. You can choose from various stain options, different number of panels, and have your menu covers created to your size specifications. For decoration options, you can have a screened logo or a laser etched logo which can be color filled with a color of your choice. Our team of menu design experts will work with you to create the perfect product for your company.
Here is a sampling of a few of my favorite wood and bamboo menu cover projects we have designed.
Now if you like wood, but don’t want the real thing you can also opt for faux wood! Our faux wood material combines the rustic look of real wood with the functionality of a simulated leather. Like our other materials, the faux wood collection is a perfect fit for numerous styles of menu and drink menu covers.
Wood Menu Boards
If a traditional menu cover is not your style, then you need to check out our Wood Menu Boards with Bands and Wood Menu Clipboards. Our wood menu boards are available in various stain options and can be laser etched or screen printed, like our menu covers. We have standard menu board sizes, but our menu design team has the ability to create a custom size board for your project.
Our unique menu boards are popular with establishments that frequently change out menu inserts. With the various decoration options available, our restaurant menu boards can be used in any setting from cafes, country clubs and high class restaurants, to bars, trendy hot spots and nightclubs. These boards are perfect for displaying happy hour specials, drink menus and even your full dinner menus!
Not in the food industry? Not only are our menu boards great for restaurants and bars, but these boards can be used at hotels, spas, country clubs and anywhere else you need to provide information to customers. Present your information to your guests with a unique menu board created by our menu design team.

Wood Table Top Marketing Products
My favorite restaurant marketing products are table top marketing pieces. Even after your menus are gone, table top marketing pieces remain!
We have a menu design team that can create a custom wood table top product for you, or chose from one of our in-stock items. Our wood table menu holders come in a variety of options and can provide a natural or rustic look for your establishment. Our wood block table stand is newly available in three colors: Mahogany, Black and Natural. This table menu holder is lightweight and versatile, as each menu holder features two cut slits that allow you to hold a single sheet of paper, or a separate wooden board or clipboard. Our in-stock T-Stands are a type of hanging stand that is available with a brass or stainless bar. Stands come with two hanging nickel metal rings, and can be decorated by laser engraving the base, with or without a color fill.
