Create the Food Flyer Header

Create a new PSD file, canvas size 800x570px ; you can choose any size you want but for the same result you have to keep the proportions. Create a new layer called Background and fill it with color white.

In a new layer add this free for commercial use Fast Food Restaurant Background stock image and place it as header for your flyer.

Add an Inner Shadow layer style to the Fast Food Background layer.

Add Chalk Text on Chalkboard Background

Use the Type Tool to write a text like "Restaurant Menu" for example. For this restaurant flyer I will use the Bakery Font type. Learn how to install new font in Photoshop from this quick tutorial for beginners. I used two text layers, one for "restaurant" and one for "menu".

Use white color for the text to look like chalk. If you want to learn how to create realistic chalk effect in Photoshop , here you have a list of tutorials, styles and actions to help you do it.

Press Control-T to transform the text layers like shown in the image.

Use the Pen Tool to create some wavy lines.

Add the Food Icons

Depending on what type of food you have in your menu, choose food icons from this collection.

For each food icon add a text layer with the name and price. I will use Sketch Block Font but you can use ant font type you like. For the font color use a dark tone of gray #302e2f.

Create Paper Texture Effect in Photoshop

To create the effect that the flyer is printed on a rough paper, I will use this paper texture and add it in a new layer above all the other layers. Set the blend mode of the Paper Texture layer to Multiply.

Add a Levels Adjustment to lighten the paper texture.

Add a Hue/Saturation Adjustment to desaturate the paper texture.

So here is the final result for the restaurant menu flyer designed in Photoshop.

Add Wood Table Texture

Inside the PSD file you also have the wood table with the stack cards mockup. All you have to do is to add the wood texture inside the smart object, save and see the result. Also you can change the design of the menu card inside the smart object and the mockup will update.
