Increased foot traffic is what all businesses aim for. But how do we achieve it? Advertising need not be expensive. You do not have to invest in huge billboards to command attention. You want a display that is unique, cost-efficient, and of course durable and flexible. One such clever and inexpensive marketing idea is the use of an outdoor chalkboard display.

The above photos feature Budweiser and Bud Light brand names on the frames. We love the contrast between the blackboard and the branding. The colors pop so they are really hard to ignore. These are perfect for bars and restaurants. Add some LED lights to make them even more noticeable at night!

Chalkboards are easily one of the most flexible marketing displays out there. They are perfect for indoor and outdoor promotions. The easel type display gives managers a place to promote their company in a creative way.

Blackboard tents are usually used as menu boards and are positioned along the sidewalk to pull in customers. As the board can be placed in areas with high foot traffic, it effectively attracts people to come and visit their store.

We love the combination of materials here. The brand name is laser cut. Its silhouette created a nice contrast against the light-colored wood. The base is also made from acrylic, to give it a touch of modern look.

This one is pretty basic and simple, but because it has more space to write on, it allows you to make bigger writings. The simple mahogany-colored frame looks sleek and high-end. This would be perfect as an in-store display and trade show POP display.

What We Like About the Outdoor Chalkboard Display

Sturdy Design

The chalkboards are designed to withstand harsh outdoor conditions. The frames are coated with wood finish to give it a rustic look and protect the wood from fading due to constant exposure to sun and rain.


There are two sides to play with. You can use both sides to showcase your menu or promote discounts. As such, customers coming from either side can easily see the menu or whatever the company is currently promoting.


Made from light wood material with simple customizations, this outdoor POS display is lightweight, portable, and cost-effective. As such, it makes a smart advertising choice for small and medium businesses. Store managers will not have to replace the whole unit each time they need to change their menu. They will only need to erase it and make new eye-catching designs to keep designs fresh, interesting, and engaging!
