1.  Additional Webpages

The Standard DinerMagic Design includes a Homepage, Contact Us, Map & Directions, Gallery, Menu, Guestbook and Daily Specials pages.  Optional webpages available include Webcam, Jobs, Events, Twitter, and more to come.  These can be added at any time and cost only $100 for each page.  Contact your DinerMagic Affiliate if you are interested.

 

2.  Additional Menus

The Standard DinerMagic Design includes the layout and digitizing of up to 6 pages for your first menu.  Many restaurants will have additional menus such as Breakfast/Lunch, Drink, Wine Lists, Desserts, etc.  Each of these requires additional layout and digitizing.  But the cost is minimal:  Only $50 per page.  They will have the same editing and printing capabilities and will appear on the Menu page, the same as your main menu.

 

3.  Additional Menu pages

We have tried to make the Standard DinerMagic Design package as affordable as possible.  Therefore we will layout and digitize up 6 pages without additional cost.  However, if your first menu has more than 6 pages, we will need to add an additional charge of $50 per page to cover our cost.  However, there is no limit to the number of pages that we can design for you.

 

4.  DinerMagic Takeout Menu Option

One of the most cost-effective forms of advertising is takeout menus.  For example, smart restaurant owners know that tourists and business clients who stay at local hotels and motels will check out the brochure racks.  If your takeout menu is there, chances are they will take one up to their room.  However, two reasons why many restaurants do not use takeout menus is that it can be (1) expensive to print and (2) a chore to update and keep consistent with their main menus.  The DinerMagic Takeout Menu Option addresses both of these issues.


Most restaurant menus are printed on heavy stock paper, usually in letter (8.5" x 11"), legal (8.5" x 14") or ledger (8.5" x 17") sizes.  Also, many restaurants use menu holders that are made of vinyl, cloth or leather that will enhance the look and will protect the paper from becoming soiled or taken by customers. Takeout menus are usually ordered in quantities of hundreds or thousands.  They are usually smaller in size and printed on less expensive paper, often in black and white, to keep the cost lower.  However, the lower cost is often mitigated when menu prices change or items are added or removed and all of the unused menus are discarded. 

 

 Most menu designers who create menus with up to 6 full-size pages will photographically reduce the size of these pages to fit a standard bi-fold or tri-fold brochure format.  And many will charge you a handsome fee for doing this - each time you order new takeout menus.

 

However, with the DinerMagic Takeout Menu Option, you have the same advantages that you have with your full-size DinerMagic menus!  For example, you only print the quantity that you need and best of all, the changes that you make on your full size menus are automatically made to your takeout menu!  If your menus use standard-size paper, all you have to do is press one button on your admin panel to upload the revised takeout menu to your website before printing it.  It just takes a few seconds!  You even have the ability to change the sequence of pages in your takeout menu!  Check out some of the Takeout Menu examples from some of our customers by clicking on the following links:

5.  Random Homepage Photo Option

As you know, you can choose to have a photo on your homepage or not.  With this option, you can also have a series of different photos that will appear each time you visit your homepage, or each time your screen is refreshed.  This give the appearance of a website that is being continually updated.  All you have to do is to click on in the Photos page for each photo you would like to include in the sequence, from your Admin Panel.  Click on the following link to see an example:

 

Random Homepage Photo


6.  Multiple Galleries Option

The Standard DinerMagic Design includes one webpage to store all of your photos.  Some restaurants like to have photos organized in several galleries.  For example, you may wish to have photos of your foods separate from photos of your guests.  Others may want to feature separate galleries for desserts, vegetarian, drinks, etc.  With the Multiple Galleries Option, you can have as many galleries as you want.  Just click on the gallery name and it will display only photos that are assigned to that gallery.  Click on the following link for an example: 

 

Multiple Galleries Option

 

7.  Webcam Kit Option

Many restaurants have web cameras installed for various reasons, such as (1) security/surveillance, (2) keeping an eye on operations while away from the restaurant, or (3) giving you, customers, friends and family the opportunity to view your restaurant in realtime, from another city, state or country.


DinerMagic incorporates this feature in an easy to use and customer-installable Webcam Kit, available at a very affordable price.  All you need is a relatively fast Internet connection, such as cable or DSL. Installation will take no more than 30 minutes and the DinerMagic Webcam Kit will come pre-configured for your website.  You can have as many cameras as your bandwidth supports.  Note:  The camera(s) should be mounted in plain sight to act as a deterrent and to comply with privacy laws.  You might even be able to qualify for a discount on your insurance premiums!  Check out the views from one of our customers:

8.  Sequential Gallery Slide Show Option

Some restaurants like to display their foods in color photos or on a flat-screen wall-mounted video picture frame.  After all, "a picture is worth a thousand words".  There are commercial systems available with screens that vary from 18" that cost less than $1000 to those that are 50" and cost $3000 or more.  Photos are typically uploaded via a thumbdrive connected to the monitor's USB port and are displayed in a video slide show fashion.


However, DinerMagic's Sequential Gallery Slide Show Option gives you the same or better capability for much less cost and effort.  If you have an old spare PC or notebook and a suitable LCD monitor of any size, you can display a true slide show presentation of a selection (your choice), or all of the photos in your Gallery page.  You can easily control the timing and photo selection from your DinerMagic Admin Panel. This option will cost you only $100!  Hint: You can easily increase the size of the images by lowering the display resolution of the monitor.
