A “Fresh” Take on Signage for Grocery Stores

In order to hold up to moisture and temperature fluctuations, signage in the fresh departments of grocery stores must evolve beyond standard paper or labels. Product and pricing signage in the produce, deli and prepared food section needs to be durable to survive.

For grocery stores, there is a huge potential for sales growth in the fresh departments. According to Nielsen research in 2017, top-performing grocery retailers “derive a larger portion of their sales from the fresh departments. In fact, nearly half of all food sales among top-performing fresh retailers comes from fresh products, compared with just 27% among bottom-performing fresh retailers.” Within the fresh departments, the expansion of prepared food offerings is a particularly beneficial tactic that is paying off for many of these top-performing stores.

Durable signage for prepared food is a must

If you plan to take this approach and focus on prepared food, then the need for effective signage will eventually follow. It’s a no-brainer that signage is extremely important in grocery stores. First and foremost, the customer needs to be able to see clear pricing and the product’s name. In order to hold up to moisture and temperature fluctuations, signage in the fresh departments must evolve beyond standard paper or labels; product and pricing signage in the produce, deli and prepared food section needs to be durable to survive.

Don’t waste time laminating

When faced with combatting wet conditions, many stores turn to plastic protectors or lamination for their signage. But lamination is costly, time-consuming and not that durable. With cracking, peeling and general wear and tear on a laminated sign, liquids will penetrate over time. This results in a sign that looks unattractive and unprofessional.

Regular signage vs. REVLAR signage

An aesthetically pleasing sign will draw potential customers in. A waterproof synthetic paper will achieve this look right out of the printer and without any additional steps to make it durable. REVLAR Premium synthetic paper is a waterproof, tear-proof material that has the look, feel and printability of traditional paper, but it is actually a #1 recyclable plastic. It will outlast any laminated piece by maintaining its appearance and integrity even with exposure to liquids, heavy handling or cleaning.

Meat juices have met their match

Beyond the wet conditions that accompany fresh products, there are also contamination issues and bacterial concerns. It’s important for grocery stores to be able to clean signage. With its waterproof qualities, REVLAR can be washed and sanitized with a cleanser.

REVLAR Premium is food-safe

REVLAR Premium is FDA compliant as a food contact substance (FCS), so it is proven to be safe if it directly touches food. This makes REVLAR Premium a perfect solution for deli counters/stations where signs are nestled in and amongst the prepared food, seafood and meat. This makes REVLAR’s waterproof characteristics and cleanability all the more helpful!

How else can you use it?

So we’ve primarily focused on product and pricing signage in this post, but we haven’t yet mentioned the other ways that REVLAR can be used in a grocery store. The material is versatile, which allows it to support a variety of uses. We’re talking loyalty cards, labels, tags, procedural/training manuals and recipe cards!

Why make recipe cards?

Many stores are finding success by grouping together products in a display that will make an entire meal. Take it a step further by creating durable recipe cards on REVLAR Premium for customers to take home with all of their ingredients! It’s an easy value-add that will delight and impress your customers and keep them coming back.

How You Can Use Waterproof Synthetic Paper

Wondering how you can use waterproof synthetic paper? Well, we’ve got ideas upon ideas – some from us and a few from our favorite customers! Think menus, parking passes, indoor/outdoor signage, maps, manuals, tags, labels, cards, tickets and more…

REVLAR Products In Use

As we mentioned in this blog post, when folks are first learning about waterproof synthetic paper, they often ask how it can be used. Most prospective customers want to hear about how others have used synthetic paper first, which sparks their own ideas. In the printing industry, these project ideas are called “applications.” Applications are examples of the ways that a material (or “printing substrate”) can be used in the real world as a finished, printed piece.

More brand options means more application options

The expansion of our REVLAR waterproof paper line now gives our customers more application options than ever! Each REVLAR product has unique characteristics that make it better suited to certain projects. For example, Soft’s silky smooth feel translates well for guides and brochures, while Premium’s FDA compliance makes for ideal food-safe deli picks and menus. Select, on the other hand, is a great alternative to Premium when cost is the priority.

Based on these considerations, we created a table to share some tried and true examples of how to use REVLAR. Please keep in mind, these are just ideas to get you thinking. The pairings of these applications and particular REVLAR products are just suggestions. It’s always best to reach out to one of our specialty paper experts to talk through your options and get a recommendation catered to your specific needs.

REVLAR Application Ideas, menus, food-safe menus, folded menus, recipe cards, placemats, ID tags, ID cards, Fishing licenses, Signage, posters, notices, temporary license plates, door hangers, removable labels, event passes, shelf wobblers, shelf strips, shelf sliders, race bibs, parking tickets, parking passes, hanging parking passes, charts, service tags, keg collars, maps, folded maps, blueprints, chemical drum labels, growler tags, emergency guides, food-safe deli picks, bottle neckers, retail tags, loyalty cards, reward cards, bookmarks, medical lab logs, medical forms, training manuals, field manuals, parts manuals, maintenance manuals

Ryan Rud-Cloud from White Rabbit Copy Service and Digital Printing in Indiana recently shared this photo with us. He’s using REVLAR to make playing cards! Rud-Cloud told us:

“We use REVLAR 10.7 mil for playing cards, business cards, and small outdoor signs. People love the fact that we have playing cards that they don’t have to worry about getting wet or even dirty because they know they can clean them. Make a great gift for kids or for being outdoors. I am a BIG fan of RELYCO.”

Improving Restaurant Kitchen Efficiency with Waterproof Paper

In any busy restaurant kitchen, maximizing speed of service and plate presentation quality is the most important goal. There needs to be consistency throughout the meal prep process. Every operation runs more effectively when a process is standardized and employees are correctly trained for consistency.

improving kitchen efficiency with waterproof paper

In any busy restaurant kitchen, maximizing speed of service and plate presentation quality is the most important goal. There needs to be consistency throughout the meal prep process. From preparing salads and desserts, to crafting each entree to the chef’s specifications, all of the details matter. Before each plate makes its debut on your guest’s table, even the minor finishing touches, like garnish placement, should be uniform.

Consistency is key

Every operation runs more effectively when a process is standardized and employees are correctly trained for consistency. In a kitchen environment, prep cooks, pastry chefs, sous chefs, line cooks and anyone responsible for handling food needs to know how each dish should be prepared and presented, as well as the opening and closing procedures for each shift.

Use job aids

After in-person training and job shadowing, the best way to ensure employee training programs are effective and followed is to provide reliable tools that will make standards stick. Those tools are often printed reminders that are posted or stored in the kitchen.

Examples include:

  • Training Manuals
  • Recipe Cards / Recipe Sheets
  • Food Prep Sheets
  • Storage Signage
  • Safe Food Handling Posters
  • Refrigeration Temperature Guides – to be placed outside and inside of walk-ins and other coolers
  • Thermostat Setting Guidelines – for grills, ovens, fryers and other equipment

These printed items will need to endure in an intense environment. Think of the splashes, heat fluctuations and heavy handling they’ll experience in a kitchen. These tools are only as good as the material they’re printed on. If they don’t last, your employees cannot guarantee consistency and efficiency, and you will spend precious time printing and replacing, printing and replacing…. You get the idea.

How to protect printed pieces

To preserve printed materials, many restaurants turn to lamination. But lamination is not a perfect solution.. It is a time-consuming hassle that doesn’t work very well. So in addition to taking time to produce, it will eventually will peel apart with frequent handling and exposure to moisture – a waste of time and resources.

Try something new

We recommend cutting out the middle-man instead of trying to make standard paper into something it’s not. Synthetic waterproof paper is designed to withstand water, grease, chemicals, temperature fluctuations and heavy handling. The durability is already built into the material, it doesn’t have to be added. Plus, you can print it on your desktop laser printer… Did we mention that it’s also less expensive than lamination?

REVLAR waterproof paper can be easily cleaned, so you don’t need to worry about splatters or food residue. Simply wipe it down with a wet cloth or dunk it in water! REVLAR can be cut, punched or bound, so your guides and recipe cards can be fully customizable! Print them yourself and make them whatever size you prefer: small enough to fit in a back pocket or large enough to fill a binder.

By enabling you to print job aids just once, synthetic waterproof paper streamlines the employee training process. Once all staff is on the same page, everything will run more efficiently in your busy kitchen, which helps you to achieve your restaurant’s overall goal: maximizing speed without compromising on the quality of your meals.

Waterproof Restaurant Posters: A Recipe for Long-Lasting Success

As a restaurant owner or manager, one of your biggest priorities should be your staff. They are your biggest asset. Ensuring safety in the back of the house with posters and signage not only improves working conditions, it can also create a more efficient kitchen.

It’s commonly understood that restaurant owners and management staff are very busy. From the day-to-day details to larger concerns about staying relevant and responding to changing demographics, they have their plates full. (Pun intended!) It can be a volatile and stressful industry; there are a lot of aspects that go into opening and maintaining a successful restaurant. But as an owner or manager, one of your biggest priorities should be your staff. They are your biggest asset. You can have a great menu, but without the staff to run your restaurant, it won’t matter.

The importance of staff safety

Your staff’s well-being and safety should be critically important to you. Of course, it’s also the law for employers to provide a safe workplace. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) lists “color codes, posters, labels or signs to warn employees of potential hazards” as a key employer responsibility. Ensuring safety in the back of the house not only improves working conditions, it can also create a more efficient kitchen.

Reduce risk with restaurant posters

Safety notices aren’t just about keeping your staff safe, they can also be used to protect your patrons – and, by default, your restaurant’s reputation. To reduce the risk of foodborne illnesses, educate your staff about improper food storage and healthy habits. According to Learn2Serve, risk-reduction signage that is “easy to understand, informative, attention-grabbing and memorable” will reinforce training sessions. It may sound basic, but it works! ServSafe offers some downloadable restaurant posters on the resources page of their website, which you can print off. Alternately, you can create your own posters with catchy lines and funny images to mix things up!

Restaurant Posters

Here are a few more signage ideas:

  • Food safety posters
  • Handwashing station reminders
  • Opening/closing procedures
  • Instructions on how to safely operate an appliance

Find a suitable material for the kitchen

Restaurant posters or signs on standard paper aren’t going to hold up long in a busy kitchen. That environment can be pretty extreme for basic signage. We’re talking temperature fluctuations, moisture, grease and splashes galore! Using a waterproof, tear-proof paper eliminates the need to laminate standard paper, which reduces cost, time and annoyance.

REVLAR waterproof paper is a great option for restaurant kitchens. It is safe to use in direct or indirect contact with food and you can use your own dry toner laser printer! You can also find it in eye-catching vibrant colors. Try out waterproof paper for yourself! Click here or on the button below to request free samples.

Atlantic Grill Loves the Look, Feel and Ease of Waterproof Menus

Watch the video to learn why Atlantic Grill uses waterproof menus! Atlantic Grill is open year-round, but because they are located in a seasonal community, they receive an influx of customers during the summer months. As the number of patrons increases, the need for durable menus becomes even more critical.

 

Atlantic Grill is situated in the coastal community of Rye, New Hampshire. They’ve been in business for three years and they specialize in fresh seafood and traditional fare with a creative twist. The restaurant is located just minutes from Rye’s beautiful sandy beaches.

They are open year-round, but because they are located in a seasonal community, they receive an influx of customers during the summer months. Their hours expand and they begin to offer both lunch and dinner 7 days per week. As the number of patrons increases, the need for durable menus becomes even more critical.

For Atlantic Grill, their interest in waterproof menus originated for both aesthetic and practical reasons. Becky Donovan, Atlantic Grill’s General Manager, explains:

“We didn’t like the look of paper menus in plastic sleeves. That’s what we had when we first opened. We wanted something that was just a little more different. We needed something durable, that didn’t need additional protection. We wanted something that could handle a lot of use, especially in the summer when we have a high volume of customers.”

Why are REVLAR waterproof menus such a good fit for Atlantic Grill?

  • They are much happier with the look and feel of REVLAR vs. the plastic protectors they previously used
  • Their management prefers to purchase products from NH companies
  • It fulfills their operational needs for cleanable, printable and durable menus for a high volume of customers

Please Restaurant Customers by Keeping Menus Clean

Restaurant owners: dirty menus are one of your customers’ biggest pet peeves. A menu that is sticky, stained or has food remnants on it can be, at best, off-putting and, at worst, disgusting. You can easily lose customers over it. This can be avoided by simply keeping menus clean.

keeping menus clean

Restaurant owners: dirty menus are one of your customers’ biggest pet peeves. A basic Quora inquiry reveals complaint after complaint about dirty menus. A menu that is sticky, stained or has food remnants on it can be, at best, off-putting and, at worst, disgusting. You can easily lose customers over it. Even worse than losing customers? Customers posting about their negative experiences on a review site, like TripAdvisor or Yelp. Check out the images below – those are actual reviews on TripAdvisor. One customer’s bad impression then impacts countless potential customers. Their likelihood to want to visit your restaurant decreases. All of this can be avoided by simply keeping menus clean.

Unsanitary Menus

Beyond the obvious ick factor of old food sticking to menus, there are other elements to consider. Even menus that look clean to the naked eye can harbor a multitude of germs. Think about it: everyone touches them. If you aren’t cleaning your menus with an antibacterial cleaning agent, your menu is bound to be unsanitary. Indeed, there was a 2013 report published by a team of researchers that suggests menus can serve as vehicles for pathogens such as salmonella and E. coli.

Your Choices for Keeping Menus Clean

If you aren’t regularly cleaning your menus, you are doing your restaurant – and your customers – a real disservice. Dirty menus are an often overlooked, but easy-to-solve problem. To ensure that you always have fresh, clean menus to present, you have two choices: constantly re-print paper menus or print once on a material that can be washed and sanitized. If you decide to avoid paper menus because of the cost associated with daily printing, then you probably don’t want to laminate either. Lamination can look cheap. It is also a time-consuming and expensive hassle that isn’t all that effective in the long run.

Waterproof Menus

For a permanent solution, consider synthetic waterproof paper. It is super durable and will outlast all other menu materials. It is tear-proof and easily endures heavy handling. You can even print your own menus if you’d like to. The waterproof material can be washed and wiped down to sanitize it.

The synthetic material will not break down even after multiple cleanings. But it is important to point out that if you use a harsh chemical cleaner, the toner might start to flake off. This can also happen if menus are stacked while wet. Toner failure can be easily avoided by visiting your local print shop and UV coating your menus.

Waterproof menu options are available in a variety of sizes, thicknesses and colors on our REVLAR waterproof material. Click here or on the button below to learn more about waterproof menus with our free guide!

Paper or Plastic Menus: Do Your Menus Pass the Tear Test?

Menus receive heavy and frequent handling and they are exposed to food and drinks often. In order for them to last, you need to invest in a good quality material that can withstand these elements. Plastic menus are not only waterproof, they’re also tear-proof.


Paper or plastic? That’s the age old question, right? But we’re not talking about bags here, we’re discussing menus! Menus receive heavy and frequent handling and they are exposed to food and drinks often. In order for them to last, you need to invest in a good quality material that can withstand these elements. Plastic menus are the perfect solution! The synthetic material is not only waterproof, it’s also tear-proof.

Paper Menus = Easy Tearing

Unfortunately, if your menus are made from paper, they are not going to pass a tear test. Regular paper – even a heavy stock – is not going to hold up to abuse. Paper rips…that’s all there is to it!

We conducted tear tests at five different restaurants for the video above. Check it out by pressing the play button or clicking here! Every paper menu failed; we were able to rip them easily. Sure, we know that most of your customers aren’t deliberately tearing your menus like we did for our video. We did it to make the point that paper menus are a bad idea because they are flimsy. Even if you put them in a menu cover or booklet, the paper will still wear out and develop tears over time.

Plastic Menus = Tear-proof and Waterproof

Waterproof menus are made from synthetic paper. The plastic doesn’t tear, even when you really try! And we definitely tried: see how hard we were on the plastic menu at the :20 mark?! That thing would not rip!

The plastic waterproof material also means that these menus can tolerate spills and grease. You can wash the plastic with water or wipe it with a mild cleansing agent. This is also a great feature because it allows you to disinfect your menus. The ability to clean the material eliminates the need to reprint. Unlike paper menus, if your plastic menus get soiled, it doesn’t mean you need new ones, which saves you time, money and hassle!

Speaking of printing, don’t assume that the plastic material means that you can’t print your own. On the contrary, it’s super easy to print these menus with your dry toner laser printer. You can still make changes and updates to your menu whenever you want to!

8 Great Bar Menu Design Ideas Using Waterproof Paper

We’ve got great news: making the transition to a waterproof material doesn’t mean that you need to compromise on design. If you’re feeling stuck on design or just want to see some examples, we’ve got you covered. Here are eight bar menu design ideas to inspire you!

When designing menus, bars, pubs, and cocktail lounges all have to consider the spills that will inevitably happen. If you decide to print your menus on standard paper, those menus will need to be tossed if they get wet, sticky or soiled. It’s a waste of time, money and resources. But if menus are initially printed on waterproof paper, they can simply be wiped down with a wet cloth and reused after a spill.

Your Design Will Still Shine

There’s no need to fear that making the transition to a waterproof material will mean that you need to compromise on design. That presumption couldn’t be further from the truth. You can still design your menus however you want! Drink menus can be really fun. They’re often smaller than a full-sized restaurant menu – at just one page or less – which means that their design and layout can be all the more unique. If you’re feeling stuck on design or just want to see some examples, we’ve got you covered. Here are eight bar menu design ideas to inspire you!

Menus for Restaurants With Bars

bar menu design ideasThe bright yellow waterproof menu is for a restaurant near a beach that has an outdoor deck/patio bar open in the summer. The colors and design definitely fit that atmosphere, right?

The Blue Latitudes menu’s design is simple and crisp. These white menus stand out nicely against the copper covered high table tops and bar.

Hazel House has a quiet cocktail lounge attached to their fine dining area. The neutral, muted colors reflect the up-scale nature of the establishment, while the pops of color make their drink images come alive.

Menus for Late Night Bars

bar menu design ideasWineries and breweries sometimes open up later at night for tastings and flights. The Wine Bar menu is designed to be elegant and eye-catching. It sits atop a wine barrel next to where tastings are poured. On the other hand, the brewery designed a smaller menu because they wanted to be able to tuck it between the glasses on each flight paddle.

The Night Cap Bar menu is an example of a pre-scored menu. It looks classic, without looking pretentious. It matches the exclusive, yet welcoming feel that you get when you walk into your neighborhood cocktail lounge.

Menus for Urban Daytime Spots

bar menu design ideasThe juice bar menu illustrates their fresh, healthy drinks through their use of color on their menu. While a hipster coffee bar utilizes a black waterproof paper to create a chalkboard vibe. Menus are attached to wooden slabs with elastic bands for utility and to convey that we-just-threw-this-together look.

All of these waterproof menus can be printed on a dry toner laser printer. It’s just as easy to print on waterproof paper as it is to print on standard paper. There’s no reason that you can’t design a really special menu on waterproof paper.

We hope these bar menu design ideas have sparked some ideas for you! Remember, the key is to utilize colors and design to create menus that are unique and reflective of your space.

Menu Paper at Blue Latitudes Can Handle a Spill (Or Several)

Our latest customer story comes from Blue Latitudes, a restaurant located in Dover, New Hampshire. Owner Jeff Roemer sat down to chat about menu paper and the benefits of going waterproof.

menu paper

Our latest customer story comes from Blue Latitudes, a restaurant located in Dover, New Hampshire. After generously allowing us to film a video in his restaurant, owner Jeff Roemer sat down to chat about menu paper and the benefits of going waterproof.

Neighbors Become Friends

Blue Latitudes is located in a restored mill building where Relyco headquarters used to be. Twelve years ago, Relyco was located on the floor directly above where the restaurant was moving in and getting started. According to Jeff, Relyco owner Mike Steinberg was not shy about meeting his new neighbors. He stopped in to say hello, as did other Relyco employees. As time went on, Mike and Jeff became good friends. Eight years ago, their friendship further evolved when they co-created an annual Thanksgiving Celebration for people in the community who might not otherwise have the opportunity to enjoy a traditional meal. As the friendship between Jeff and Mike grew, so has the relationship between Relyco and Blue Latitudes. It makes perfect sense that when Jeff wanted to move away from traditional paper for his drink menus, he turned to Relyco.

The Benefits of Waterproof Menu Paper

In the past, when Blue Latitudes used standard paper for their drink menus, they ran into problems. Now, they use 8.5″ x 11″ sheets of our 7.7 mil REVLAR waterproof paper, which they print and then cut to 4.25″ x 11″ menus. Jeff explains:

“We always used paper and I would print it here. Invariably splashes of drinks and food get on the menus. Obviously they have to be changed out every time. So there’s a printing cost and our staff was in a panic coming in to see me to get new stuff printed because of the damage. But with this [REVLAR], it’s a durable product. So it’s much easier to maintain. It’s a lot less overhead.”

For Blue Latitudes, the advantages to using waterproof menu paper go beyond the cost savings. Jeff also likes that it’s cleanable, wipeable, of a heavier stock than normal paper and it doesn’t tear. They are able to get much more life out of the menus.

Ability To Print In-House

Jeff also appreciates that he can continue to print his menus in-house. He has been particularly impressed with how the menus print.

“It [REVLAR] takes the color great. It’s easy to work with. You know I don’t have the highest end laser printer here, and it goes through there without any problem.”

Blue Latitudes prints menus once or twice a month, depending on the season and how often they’re rolling out new specials. They don’t have big printing needs, so being able to do it on site helps keep costs down and provides flexibility.

We’re glad to be able to provide these kinds of solutions and benefits to all of our customers, but it is especially sweet when we can do so for our friends.

We have a variety of sizes, thicknesses and colors available for waterproof menu paper. Learn more in our waterproof menu guide or request free waterproof menu samples!

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

Menu Video

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.
