Die Cut Menus
A menu is the first point of contact your customer will have with your food and beverages. It’s also a powerful marketing tool that can give your patrons details about your dishes, specialties and prices.
Nothing says “would you like to start the evening off with a glass of wine” like a menu shaped as a wine bottle.
How Does Die Cutting Work?
Die cut menus are produced using a sharp steel cutting blade called a “die.” The die is formed into a shape similar to a cookie cutter. The blade is then used to cut through the paper creating your desired shape.
Designing a Die Cut Menu
Die cuts allow you to create a one of a kind menu from curvy edges to sharp points, as well as contours. Shape your menu into a martini glass, pizza slice or hamburger. Anything is possible.
You can create the perfect bar menu with tabbed die cut menus. A flexible design allows you to create a distinct tab for beer, wine, or cocktails.
You can also create a menu with your restaurant theme in mind. Create a cow shaped menu for a steakhouse or a surfboard menu for a seaside diner. No matter what shape you have in mind, our design experts can turn your idea into printed paper.
