Support FAQs

What kind of paper should I use to print my menus?


First, we don't recommend using cheap, thin copier paper because it typically doesn't have a good finish which is necessary for good, crisp print quality.


When considering paper prices, for a ream of 500 sheets, an extra penny per sheet for quality paper is only $5 more for the whole ream. This isn't much in terms of cost, but a world of difference in terms of quality, presentation, and customer perception.


The paper you choose for your menus will depend on your menu design and usage. Size, weight, color, and finish will all determine the paper best suited for your particular application.


Paper quality is usually specified by weight.  Typically, the lighter the weight, the thinner the paper, and conversely, the heavier the weight the thicker the paper. Weights are expressed in poundage; 20 pounds is very lightweight paper suitable for copiers; 22 pounds and up are thicker and have a better tactile feel.  32 to 36 pound paper is usually called cardstock, and 50 to 60 pound paper and heavier, is usually considered cover stock. Lighter weight paper can be used with menu covers, but the heavier weights can be used without covers.


Too, paper finish helps give the perception of quality.  The better the finish, the better the quality, The finish can be textured, colored, pigmented, or bright. Textured paper can be coarse and can come in a variety of colors.  It can give a luxurious look and feel to a menu. The bright whites are superior for printing images, as colored paper tends to mute colors in an image or photo.


It is likely that your printer will have some limitations as well. You will need to check your printer's manual to determine what size and weight of paper your printer can use. If you are considering purchasing a new printer, be sure to determine what size and kinds of paper it will handle.
