Restaurants have many choices when it comes to menu printing. Media is available in a variety of substrates, sizes, and textures. Some restaurants prefer a matte classic look for their menus. Other eateries prefer a lamination to ensure durability and longevity and some prefer a textured card stock to relay information. Still, others prefer large format menus on foamcore boards or even on wall adhesive vinyl adhered directly onto their wall. Whichever preference, AlphaGraphics Chicago North has you covered.


Card stock menus are the most common form of restaurant menu printing. These can be on a matte or gloss finish, at any size preferred. A common preference is to use a textured card stock finish, such as linen or laid. These textures give a subtle difference that some eateries look for. Still others prefer card stock menus on different colors and accents, such as classic natural white or a stone white. Others prefer a “greener” look on a recycled paper stock to help illustrate their environmental consciousness. Menus printed on card stocks can either stand alone or be inserted into a restaurant portfolio/book, depending on the establishment. Some restaurants prefer a book menu that is coil or wire bound. These can also work for hotels offering in-room dining menus to their patrons from restaurants within their premises. 


Another option is table tent menus. These are especially common in bar restaurants with high top tables. These A-Frame table tops stand alone and are great for temporary promotions and specials. Bar restaurants can also utilize larger outdoor A-Frame signage on the sidewalks to illustrate their daily specials or menu items to capture nearby foot traffic, especially on the busier streets and neighborhoods of Chicago. 


A more modern, fresh way of showcasing menus for restaurants is the utilization of wall graphics and printing large foam core signs mounted to the walls/counters of restaurants. These are more common in fast food/counter service restaurants where customers can simply look up while ordering and pick their selections. With the use of new magnet printing technology, these types of menus do not have to be permanent either. By purchasing the magnet backer, a restaurant has flexibility with menu changes by simply printing a new magnet menu each time they come up or want to sell a new item. These work especially well with rotating and seasonal menu items.


AlphaGraphics Chicago North can also print trifolds, perfect for take-out menus and/or catering menus. These are typically printed on text weight stocks on either glossy or matte finishes. They are great for restaurants utilizing delivery or for high traffic eateries such as pizza parlors and Chinese restaurants.
