Menu Covers: Where To Find The Best Ones

Let a Custom Menu Cover Speak for Your Cuisine


It might be an obvious statement that a restaurant’s menu is as integral a part of the restaurant as the food itself. A Foster-Gordon custom menu cover reflects the overall feel of your restaurant, before customers have even opened it. Just as a chef takes pride in their art and styles a dish upon a plate, it would make sense that menus deserve the same level of presentation. At Foster Gordon Manufacturing Company, our menu covers give restauranteurs the opportunity to do just this.

Restaurant Menu Cover

There are a number of factors that come into play when choosing the right menu cover- price, design, craftsmanship, and all of these play an important part in choosing the right menu cover for your eatery. A balance of these three traits will help secure the best menu cover for your restaurant. Whether they are used for food, desserts, drinks, or table tents, a menu cover should speak the same message you want your food to, as well as help earn your more business.


Menu Price

This is naturally the easiest point to discuss. Choosing a menu cover within your price range is important-it needs to be a financially responsible decision. That being said, covers generally can range from $5.00 to upwards of $50.00– but be careful in choosing the cheapest menus you can find- oftentimes price is a reflection of craftsmanship, an important factor we’ll discuss later in this post.


Menu Design

Of the three factors to be discussed, this is easily the one where the most creative liberty comes in to play. Choosing a menu cover design amounts to choosing the material from which it is made as well as the styling it’s created with. Menu covers can be made from various materials- plastic, vinyl, and leather- to name a few- but the material your cover is made from should always align with the overall design of your restaurant. An upscale restaurant may opt for leather or cork, while a family diner might choose a plastic option. Your menus are a handheld version of your restaurant- and should always be viewed as such. Beyond this, gain an understanding of how many pages your menu is. Do you frequently change menu items? Perhaps you should consider a cafĂ© menu cover. Does the majority of your menu stay the same, aside from a few seasonal items? Perhaps a two and a half pocket cover would best serve your store. This is the part of the process that can be the most fun, and the most stressful- so take your time and enjoy learning how to communicate your cuisine!

Menu Craftsmanship

Lastly, and perhaps, most importantly, is the level of craftsmanship with which your menus are designed. Ideally, a menu cover is something that will be handled A LOT. Because of this, it is important to make sure your menu cover lasts as long as possible, as well as retains it’s design. Stitching should be tarnish resistant, and embossments should resist damage. That being said, sometimes importing foreign made menu covers, even if they are the cheapest available, means a cover loses some of this integrity. At Foster Gordon, our 100% American-made, handcrafted menu covers speak of quality workmanship and care.
