Step by step installation guide for the Baker Menu.
Whether you’re displaying a food menu, coffee list, or your favourite quotes, the The Magnetic Letter Board aims to compliment that. You can lay the rails side-by-side or vertically - whatever works best for you and your space!
Here's how the magnetic letter board could look in your space.
Select a wall-space to install the Magnet Wall Board. Insert the first screw in the left end hole in what will be your bottom rail.
LEVEL + POSITION
Using a level, position the rail so it is perfectly horizontal. Fasten the second, third and fourth screws and ensure the rail is securely fixed to the wall.
SPACING + FIXING
Place the spacer on the first rail. Using this as a guide, position and fix the second railing onto the wall. Continue this method for the remaining rails. Make sure the rails are nice and tight on the spacer to ensure that they stay parallel.
ARRANGE YOUR TEXT
Easy as that! The rails are now fixed in place and ready for you to arrange the text, simply place the magnet letters onto the rails and you’re good to go.
