Menu Printing – The New Normal

The menu and menu printing has transformed because of the pandemic.  Takeaways and restaurants have had to adapt to a new normal and ensure minimal viral transmission.  In addition, some restaurants have done away with their menus altogether.  Scanning a QR code at your table is a recent development, bringing you to a list of edible delights.  Therefore, restaurant menu printing is seeing a new normal.

Menus aren’t restricted to merely pointing out what food and drinks are available at an establishment.  In many cases, the menu can inspire the eating habits of the customer.  Putting care into your menu shows you put care into your food.  Therefore, you should consider an inspiring menu designed to inspire your patrons.

You’ve put the time into your business – the décor, the ingredients, the kitchen and finally the meals.  Therefore, ensure you have an appetising menu design that makes your patrons excited to try your food.

Menu Options

At Kaizen Print, we have a number of different menu printing options for you to choose from.  Selecting the correct one for your menu can be daunting if this is your first menu design.

Single-Use Restaurant Menus

Single-Use menus are ideal if you turn tables quickly.  These quality disposable menus are printed on our premium silk and uncoated paper stocks.  With Covid-19 many restaurants have been using disposable menus to prevent or limit the spread of the virus.

In addition, we are acutely aware that the disposable nature of these menus counteracts sustainability.  Therefore, we have chosen FSC certified, responsibly sourced paper that is fully recyclable.  Nothing compares to reducing use.  However, we want to provide the most responsibly sourced paper we can.

However, these menus are not limited to single use.  In addition, adding a clipboard to the back of them for protection allows them to reusable.
