EnvironPrint Menu Card Printing
A menu card has many potential uses. Cafes, restaurants, and bars use menu cards to highlight specials, drink lists, seasonal dishes, or for promoting their takeout options. Other types of businesses use menu cards too—for example, a spa or salon might feature their offerings on a menu card. Menu cards can be tucked into carryout orders or mailed out as part of a direct mail campaign.
With so many dining establishments highlighting seasonal ingredients and updating their menus frequently as a result, high-quality paper menu cards are an affordable option that allows you to refresh your menu on a regular basis without requiring a significant investment. Small menu cards are perfect for promoting prix fixe menus, wine lists, and drinks options, while larger menu cards can accommodate an entire menu for dine-in customers. For menu cards that can withstand regular, repeated use, choose a heavy-duty card stock with a premium finish.
At EnvironPrint, we understand that you want your restaurant's food to look as good as it tastes when printing a menu card. Details matter with menus, as even a slight change in color or saturation can make a photograph go from mouthwatering to stomach-turning. Our professional printing team will get the job done right the first time, ensuring that your menu cards are ready to use as soon as they arrive.

Frequently Asked Questions About Menu Card Printing
What is the best size for a takeout menu card?
For takeout menus, most restaurants select an 8.5” x 11” format. This size fits into a regular envelope for mailing when folded in thirds, and it can be tucked into or stapled to takeout bags for carryout orders. Customers find it convenient to store a menu this size in drawers and organizers, but it also allows you plenty of room to list all of your restaurant's dishes and even include a coupon or two.
What size menu card should I order?
Menu cards are available in four standard sizes and custom sizes as well. If you're using your menu cards for people who are dining in, the 8.5" x 14" menu card is ideal because it provides plenty of space for images and explanations of each dish. An 8.5” x 11” menu can suffice if you have a smaller variety of dishes or don't plan on including photos. Appetizer menus, seasonal specials, wine and beer choices, cocktail menus, and prix fixe menus are all a fit for our 4.25” x 11” menu card choice.
What is the thickness of EnvironPrint menu cards?
Menu cards are available in five different thicknesses: 14 pt., 16 pt, 18 pt, 24 pt, and 100 lb. paper stock. We suggest using thinner paper for takeout menus and thicker paper for in-house dining menus that will be reused.
What types of finishes are available for menu card printing?
Standard gloss, standard matte, premium soft touch matte, and premium high gloss UV are the four professional finishes available for our menu cards. Our team of digital printing experts is always happy to assist you in selecting the right finish for your project, but for takeout menus, we recommend a gloss finish, which is fairly standard. For dining-in menus, we suggest a more durable option, like our premium soft touch matte or high gloss UV.
Can I print on both sides of EnvironPrint restaurant menu cards?
Yes, absolutely! When designing a restaurant menu card, we recommend printing on both sides because it is the industry norm, but you can also print on one side if you’re only sharing a few food or drink options.
How can I design my own menu card?
Use our online design tool or one of our templates. Download the template size you need, customize it for your restaurant, and then upload it to our website before you place your order. You can also share our templates with your graphic designer so they can create a design with the exact specifications needed. (No designer? No problem! Stick to a basic style that includes your restaurant's logo, easy-to-read typefaces, and pictures of your best dishes.)
