Couple Tossing Wine Glass at a RestaurantMenus are often the litmus test for the experience that customers will have in your restaurant. The layout, design, and overall feel of your menus is very important, but today we’re going to be talking about the actual materials that you may want to consider when thinking about putting together your restaurant’s menus. Let’s take a look at some of your options.

Paper can be classy, but risky.

One very popular menu type is a single sheet of thick paper. This option is very aesthetically pleasing due to its simple elegance and easy-to-read style. The additional advantage to working with a card-like menu is its cost-efficiency. The risk of this style, however, is the fact that it can be damaged very easily. An errant spill is all it takes to ruin one of these menus.

Laminated menus are durable.

Laminated menus will not be ruined by a spill or two, making them a very attractive option for restaurants that keep a consistent list of dishes. Changing the offerings requires having the menus laminated all over again, making them less flexible than you may want. However, they are long-lasting.

Bound menus are sophisticated.

If you’re looking to amaze your guests and give them a very fine dining experience, then bound menus are going to be your strongest option. These menus are weighted, beautiful, and bound to your specifications. For the most customized look and feel, the bound menu offers the greatest option. Not only that, but bound menus are durable as well, though this largely depends on how have them bound and with what inserts. At the end of the day, no matter what menu you choose, you should make sure that it reflects your restaurant.
