You want customers to have a great experience at your restaurant. Everything down to the color and quality of your menus will make an impression. A bright, colorful menu can set you apart from your competition! Delight your customers with a creative design and color scheme, while saving yourself time, money and hassle. It’s a win-win!
The first step: coming up with an idea. Don’t know where to start? Let’s jump-start those creative juices! We came up with five breakfast menu design ideas to share.
Your Design Should Be Unique – Like You
Design your menus to reflect your restaurant. Check out our examples below. Is it a country-style place with utensils and cooking tools adorning the walls? Our black menu is designed to fit a place like that – with its chalkboard feel and illustrations. Do you have a bright and cheery atmosphere? Our pastel yellow menu is suited for that kind of restaurant – the color combination and fonts make it look friendly. With its bold greeting, the blue menu cover is perfect for a funky, eclectic place.
Color Is Key
With these five, we wanted to show a variety of breakfast menu design ideas, while also demonstrating that it’s the color that really makes them stand out. We chose colors that we thought best complimented the design and message of each menu. For example, desert sand colored paper makes the most sense for a coffee house menu, while a nice vibrant blue and white ink really pops if you’ve got a bold greeting. On the other hand, sometimes a white menu is the best option; the simplicity of our white menu’s design encouraged us to opt for a white paper. When we tried printing it on a colored paper, it just didn’t look right.
We’d recommend that you take the same approach. You definitely don’t want to choose a color that really doesn’t “go” with the design of your menu. But if you choose the right color, it can really stand out.
High Quality Without A High Cost
Once you determine your design and color, you’ll need to choose a material. Waterproof menus will last and last – through bacon grease, syrup, coffee rings and rough handling! Quick turnaround for breakfast doesn’t have to mean quick turnaround for menus. You won’t have to keep reprinting your breakfast menus if you print them on waterproof paper the first time. Check out our video to see how well waterproof menus hold up in a (very sticky!) breakfast setting.
We have a variety of sizes, thicknesses and colors available for waterproof menus on our REVLAR waterproof paper. Click here or on the button below to learn more about waterproof menus with our free guide!
