Printing restaurant menus is a crucial part of running a successful food business. It is the first point of contact and first impression of your overall operation with your customers, and it sets the tone for their dining experience. Here are a few restaurant menu printing tips that will help you create a menu that is attractive, easy to read, and informative to your customers.

Choose the Right Paper Stock

The restaurant menu paper stock you choose for your menu can make a big difference in how it is perceived by your customers. Use a menu paper stock that is sturdy and durable, and that will not easily tear or smudge. Glossy paper can add a touch of elegance, while a matte finish can give a more casual feel. If you are looking for the best material for your menus, nothing beats waterproof menu paper.

Make It Easy to Read

Fonts are really important to any menu design. The font you choose for your menu should be easy to read, even in low light. Use a font for the description that is large enough for customers to read, at least 12pt and not italic, without straining their eyes, and avoid using too many fonts or font styles (3 different at most). A simple, clean design can be more effective than a complicated layout – also stick to simple colors, it makes reading things much easier

Organize Your Menu

Nothing is worse than a menu where everything is out of place, or doesn’t make sense. Organizing your menu can make it easier for customers to find what they are looking for. Use headings and subheadings to group similar items together, and consider using boxes or borders to highlight popular or signature dishes. If a single sheet, menu items should be presented the way they will be ordered.

Provide Accurate Food Information

Having a dish on your menu, but not available at your restaurant, is a no-no. Always make sure your menu provides accurate information about your dishes, including ingredients, cooking methods, and any allergens or dietary restrictions. Make sure that your menu is up-to-date and that any changes are clearly indicated. Another tip when designing your menus is to put icons next to menu items to alert your customers which dishes may be spicy, vegan or gluten free.

Consider the Layout

The layout of your menu can have a big impact on how customers perceive your restaurant and its items. Consider the placement of items on the menu, and avoid overcrowding or cluttering the page with too much information. Use white space to create a clean and organized layout.
