Menu printing with style
SAXOPRINT is your specialist online print shop for the hotel and food service industry. We print menus and drink and wine lists for any business in the industry in almost all sizes and formats, e.g. A4 for restaurants and wineries, ice cream parlours and cocktail bars; A5 for cafés and bistros, and the smaller DL and A6 formats for take-away menus.
Pizza delivery services, for example, can turn a DL or A6 flyer printed on both sides into an attractive menu. Cafés and bistros often choose an A5 brochure or booklet with Wire-O binding. A high-quality A4 brochure with UV coating is the perfect choice for printed drink lists at high-end bars. The exclusive finishing is water resistant and very durable. Another finishing alternative is laminating, which is a thin sheet to make menus and wine lists waterproof and long lasting.
For products that have to withstand a lot of handling, we generally recommend having them finished with UV coating from our online print shop. Along with superior product quality and brilliant colour rendition, the surface of your custom product is made more robust, durable and scratch resistant. Please take into consideration that UV coating does not provide protection along the edges of the paper, which means that it is neither washable nor waterproof.
Custom printed menus – business cards for your restaurant
Menus and beverage lists are available to you in a wide array of variations. We offer you a selection of format, binding and finishing options to meet any and all expectations. Depending upon the type and size of your location, a few things have become standard in regard to printed materials. To meet or exceed these ‘standards’, there are a few basic things to think about. The first question that comes to mind when deciding on a format for your menu or drink list is fairly logical: How broad is your selection? The second consideration has to do with purpose: Is the menu to be printed on one or both sides? For use in-house or as a take-out menu? A folded menu for a snack bar or a first-class bound and finished menu for a starred restaurant, a celebrity hot spot or an exclusive bar?
Our art paper, available in 90 to 300 gsm with silk or glossy finish, is especially suited to this type of print. The high quality material ensures that your menus and wine lists make a solid, elegant impression. Order our free print sample brochure to see our quality for yourself.
When it comes to colour printing, at SAXOPRINT anything goes. We offer an entire range of colour printing options: 1 or 4 colour printing, with HKS or Pantone spot colours, or a combination of systems which can be printed on one or both sides. You can design and configure your menus exactly according to your wishes. And then rely on our many years of experience to print your designs quickly and professionally.
Menus and drink lists: bound for success
The binding of you menu deserves a great deal of thought.
A four-sided advertising brochure only needs to be folded. A high quality menu for a restaurant, bar or ice cream parlour needs a bit more – saddle stitching (staple binding) or a Wire-O (spiral) binding. The latter, in particular, makes it easy for your guests to turn each page all the way over. It also gives you a larger advertising surface to work with because all four sides of the page remain visible. Menus meant to be used outdoors or as children’s menus should have additional finishing, e.g. celloglazing/lamination, to make them waterproof and easy to clean.
Menus that are set out in restaurants don’t need to be printed in large runs. Brochures for a take-away restaurant are an entirely different matter. Nevertheless, our online print shop prints even small runs of custom menus and wine lists – at affordable prices.
In addition to menus and drinks, wine or beverage lists, our online print shop offers a wide spectrum of printed products for gastronomy, hotel and food service industries. Placemats, all-purpose tent cards and order pads are only a few of the products we custom print for restaurants, hotels and more.
