Menus are like people: first impressions count! It couldn’t be more so for outdoor menus. They must be clean, correct, and visually inviting to make your guests want to stay. Absolute no-gos are: bent corners, stains, spelling mistakes, or shabby bindings.
The best idea is to laminate your menus and keep a regular eye on them to make sure they are always in good shape. You should also instruct your service staff to keep them clean and up-to-date. This naturally all depends on whether your establishment has regularly changing outdoor menus or a standard menu that has to be kept spick and span for weeks or months at a time.
The following basics are important. When buying menus or ordering them from your printer, don’t be a penny-pincher. When choosing your paper quality and lamination, make sure they are strong, hardwearing, and not too light. After all, appealing outdoor menus must stay weatherproof, be resistant to UV fading, and not blow off the table with the slightest breeze.
It actually might be a good idea to have your next outdoor menus designed and made by professionals. Our photo gallery offers lots of ideas and inspirations to stimulate your imagination or awaken your creative talents.
