RESTAURANT MENU PRINTING
WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING
I feel as though the quality of my product was okay. I wish that the final product was the deepest black possible; however, I will be coming back to work with Alphagraphics primarily because of Brian Murdoch! His customer service was absolutely amazing and he went above and beyond for me unlike many other companies I've worked with. He treated my small scale business as though it is global. I cannot emphasize enough how service like his is one of the many reasons that businesses succeed. I will more than recommend the company solely based upon the experience I have. I was promised deadlines that were met and given recommendations for future products. Thank you sooooo much Brian for treating me like family!

You guys are always so responsive and I appreciate that you try to get us the best price. As a non-profit, that is especially critical. Your turnaround time is also impressive, even during the coronavirus pandemic you fulfilled our our quickly and thoughtfully. AlphaGraphics is always my first choice.

Nothing to be honest. I just don't do much proactive recommending in my day to day life.
Micah B. Pure Storage
Everything was handled very quickly and professionally for me. Very happy with the service.
Joanna G. Joanna Gusich
Brian Murdoch has been great and he deserves a raise. The rep before him, Fergus Calderwood, became quite rude for some reason over time. I was ready to look for another graphic designer until I heard he was replaced. Make sure you keep people like Brian.

RESTAURANT MENU PRINTING IN CHICAGO, IL
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.
Here at AlphaGraphics Chicago North, we can help guide you through the many options available in the menu printing world. Contact one of our experienced team members today to assist you in selecting the appropriate menu for your print world. We can also help you with the design or changes you are looking for if that is something you need as well.
