Thanks to the makers of SimPE and the GIMP, great tools.
Huge thanks to the creators of Simlish fonts! Too bad I can't remember which one I used.
So here are some links to various fonts. I probably used the first.
Simlish font by inkandchaos
Simlish font by SIMale at InSim
handwritten Simlish by katyjane
Simlish calligraphy by joninmobile

Thank you so much for these new menus! I have lately been looking for more menus for restaurants, and coffee places! It really makes a difference in achieving a realistic look when (especially in a coffee bar) you have a menu on the wall vs. having no menus! Thanks so much, for creating this new one!

Add this to the list of items I didn't know I needed until I saw it. Fantastic job. The chalk looks quite good.

Thank you SO much for these! They will get A LOT of use in my game!

By the way, the painting of the coffee cup behind the counter is by -Shady-.
The paintings set is called "In Time: 12 Abstract, Modern & Wooden Paintings"
and it's right here on MTS!

Great, and the simlish part won't make them stand out too much for when I'm making a movie.
Good job...

The idea is really cool. Too bad I don't have the Pets EP working anymore, I formatted my C:\ and my Pets disk got ruined... by my real pet. Cat owner is not amused. :S

I think I'll still d/l them and SimPE them towards another non-Pets mesh. :P

One thing I rarely do is download custom content that hasn't been included with any lots. However, I couldn't resist this one...I love these menus and think they're a brilliant idea, thanks!
