Your menu covers are an important part of a diner's experience. When choosing from the wide variety of wine menu covers available, you want to ensure your menu covers entice and engage your customers. The following tips will help you choose a wine menu cover that's best for your establishment.
Menu Cover Style - There are many different options of wine and drink menu covers available, including coil menu covers, Captain’s Books, menu boards, table menu holders, and even LED menu covers. Each of these styles has a variety of options and can be customized to match your restaurant's theme and brand.

Materials - Often the style of menu cover you choose is closely linked to your material preference. For instance, leather tends to work best with a Captain’s Book, while vinyl is works better for Contemporary menu covers. Ease of cleaning is generally a major consideration when choosing materials, making vinyl a popular choice.
Quality - Menus are handled quite a bit so the quality needs to be sturdy and well made. One of the easiest ways to add sturdiness to your menu covers is by using metal corners for added durability.
Budget - Of course, the type and style of wine menu cover you choose is also dependent upon how much you want to spend. While it might be tempting to buy less expensive menu covers, keep in mind you may be replacing the menu covers more frequently. Ultimately, it may make sense to spend a little more at the onset to avoid spending more on replacements.
Changeability - With the future FDA requirements for calories to be listed on food and drink menus, it’s important to select wine menu covers that will allow for changeability of menu inserts. You don’t want to be locked in to a menu cover format that will require you to change out menu covers for one simple change.
Remember, your menu covers make a statement about your business so make sure it's a great one!
