Five Of The Best Menu Cover Ideas

Looking for some menu cover ideas for your new restaurant, cafe or bar? In our post, we take you through the five best kinds of covers on the market.

1. Clear

Here's a classic; a clear cover flap that shows off your gorgeous fonts. This kind of menu cover has an elegant taste to it, but without putting your wallet into recession. It's a generally common cover, but that doesn't ignore it's class and good taste.

2. Wooden

Here's something a little different: a wooden menu cover. This is a way to knock your customers socks off and also assert a rustic, or tough environment that your restaurant wants to incorporate. It may not be very traditional, which, in a competitive marketplace, is a great direction to go to keep your establishment at the front of the pack. It's also pretty nifty, might I add!

3. Leather

Be careful having menus with a leather cover; your customers may want to take them! These are for the folks that enjoy, again, rustic or almost western joints, but also can be used in high class restaurants to put out a sort of dangerous side that the customer might not expect! This is guaranteed to attract clientele from various backgrounds (and keep them too!)

4. Fabric

How many restaurants have you been to where the menu covers are made of felt, or some other fabric? This will set you apart from your main competition and leave your customer in awe of your inventiveness and definitely underline your restaurant for future visits. It's also a good fit for a cozy yet classy restaurant setting.

5. Japanese Style

Japanese-style menu covers are, obviously, great for Japanese restaurants, but they can work for yours too! They are fantastic for upper class places that want to hearken to an older age of cafes and waiters with pencil-mustaches, and will most certainly add that last bit of flavor that your restaurant needs (aesthetically anyways; I'm sure the food is great!)


It's a safe bet to have a wide variety of culinary delights on your menu; it's a safer bet to present them with style! So take a chance; try out some unique menu cover ideas, and see for yourself just how much your business will grow.

Q: If I order more than 1 type of product with stamp printing do I need to pay additional plate or setup fees for each item?
A: No, not unless you wish for a different design to be on the different items. If these are different you will need to purchase a new plate for each job.

Q: I have a copper plate made by another company, can I use this?
A: Unfortunately not because we use a unique process for our machinery and therefore need to make a new plate
