Style, décor, and atmosphere – these elements can vary from restaurant to restaurant depending on the image that a restaurant owner wants to express with their space. For instance an owner that want his or her customers to have an upscale, fine dining experience, might furnish their restaurant with high end tables and decorate those tables with white, pressed tablecloths. For a laid back atmosphere, a restaurant owner may opt for throw away place settings and counter service.
In addition to the furniture, table settings and the restaurant building, the design of a restaurant's menu cover can also convey a particular image about the restaurant. The color, font and logos used on the cover, can also add to a customer’s perception on what to expect from the restaurant. We are revisiting a blog post from June 2015 on the “Variety of Custom Menu Cover Design Options” for more on this topic.

Designing an effective, enticing menu is a bit of an art form. There are definite tips that can help you get it right. Menu Designs has a variety of custom menu covers that can complement your menu designs and keep customers coming back for more. Read on to discover more about pairing custom menu covers with winning menu designs.
Font - The font you use on the menu cover and on the menu itself tells a customer what type of food and atmosphere to expect, such as family-style, trendy, or upscale. The font should be appropriate for the type of food your serve and your restaurant's ambiance.
Colors - Colors are known to have certain psychological effects on people, so not only should you stay consistent with your restaurant's theme and decor, but also keep in mind what effects those colors have.
Consistent Branding and Theme - It's disconcerting for a diner to see a menu cover that says haute cuisine only to open it up and see something appropriate for a fast food restaurant. Keep your menu cover and menu consistent with your food and restaurant, as well as each other.
Shorts and Sweet - Simply putting your eatery's logo on the front is often enough for a classy, stylish menu cover. Save the rest for the pages inside the menu.
