We follow up last week’s best of 2016 roundup with three additional blogs that our readers enjoyed in the past year. We are excited to share these with returning customers and people finding our blog for the first time. Here are three more of our most popular blogs from 2016.

1) 5 Poster-Ready Nashville Photo Spots

It’s no surprise that this blog was a big hit with our audience – Nashville is so photogenic! The idea features spots that photographers loved in this city and we’d love to make them into images that last forever in poster form. Here is the list again from Southern Living Magazine:

Nashville Farmers’ Market: You’ll find fresh food every day in downtown Nashville. Truckloads of homegrown melons, pattypan squash, and enough peppers to make you whistle are hauled in early seven days a week in the shadow of the capitol.

Bluebird Cafe: One of the top venues in America for hearing up-and-coming (and already famous) singers and songwriters. The small, 100-seat room isn’t fancy, but an evening there sure is fun.

The Parthenon: The centerpiece of Nashville’s Centennial Park, this full-scale re-creation of the ancient Greek Parthenon was built in 1897 as part of the city’s Centennial Exposition.

RCA Studio B: Located on downtown’s famed “Music Row,” the recording studio (Nashville’s oldest) was built in 1957 and reopened as part of the museum in 1977.

Loveless Motel and Cafe: Located at the northern terminus of the Natchez Trace, the cozy eatery serves hearty, country-ham-adorned breakfasts, as well as classic meat ’n’ three lunches and dinners daily.


2) 5 Tips for Restaurant Menu Designers

New and exciting restaurants open in Nashville every week! Ambrose has all the capabilities to meet your printing needs. See this post caught the eyes of entrepreneurs and chefs all over. The tips were:

Try keeping the menu items on one page and no bigger than a trifold. Having the choices together makes scanning and comparing easier for the customer.

Avoid listing prices in columns. Instead, place the numbers after the food item description without any fanfare.

Only the dish names should use capital letters. The descriptions can use smaller lower-case to create natural separation.

The above center section on the right page is the sweet spot. Place your signature dishes here because this is where most customers look first. The next most popular places are the first and last menu items. So, be strategic in your food placements.

The 10-10-6 rule is a good measure of a balanced menu. 10 appetizers, 10 main courses and 6 desserts.
