Printed Menus of all types, from takeaway, in-house, display and as inserts in The Shetland Times.

Benefits of producing professional menus:

When selling food items it is particularly essential to create a good first impression and give consumers instant confidence in your business and its produce. Having a professionally produced menu plays a part in achieving this and we can design, layout, print and finish your menus to help showcase your products.

Customer:

Various including, The Great Wall, Flames, KGQ Hotels, Sarmile, Phusiam, Da Muckle Café and Scalloway Hotel.

Customer Feedback:

Frequent re-orders for many of the menus provides positive feedback that the formats chosen work well and our clients’ tell us there is a strong and constant demand for their takeaway menus in particular.

Size:

Pagination will depend on the amount of items you wish to include on your menu. Formats vary widely from A5 single sided, 6pp or 8pp 1/3 A4 through to 4pp A4 depending on usage. There are various other format options too which can be discussed and we have a selection of samples at our factory for clients to view.

Our Recommendation:

6pp or 8pp 1/3 A4 menus work well for takeaway menus.

Materials:

From 80gsm coloured uncoated papers through to 300gsm uncoated, silk or matt art boards, we can help you choose which will be most beneficial dependent on our clients’ proposed usage.

Our Recommendation:

For in-house/table menus we suggest using one of our heavier card options.

Printing:

Your options are varied and will depend on usage. Single or two colour suits a variety of formats but full colour can provide that extra eye-catching edge.

Our Recommendation:

If your in-house menus are changing on a regular basis, get us to print a generic “template” with your corporate details and “menu” strap-line. This will allow you to overprint the menu content whilst keeping them looking professional.

Finishing:

We provide the option to gloss or matt laminate menus which creates a protective coating.

Our Top Tip:

If you want to get your menu out to the majority of potential clients within Shetland, call us for information on our “Shetland – Town and Country” distribution option. We insert 9700 copies of your menu into an issue of The Shetland Times newspaper which cover the majority of the islands.
