Promote Your Restaurant with Custom Takeout Menus

With food delivery and curbside service on the rise, takeout menus are great marketing tools for restaurants and eateries. They allow your customer to easily order from home, and they keep your restaurant top of mind as customers tend to hang onto takeout menus. We offer full color takeout menu printing for an affordable cost. You can choose from a variety of paper stocks, sizes, quantities, and folds to create a menu that's customized perfectly for your restaurant.

Takeout Menus FAQ

What’s the most common size for takeout menus?
Our most popular size for takeout menus is 8.5” x 11”. This size folds to 8.5” x 3 11/16” and is most commonly used for tri-fold brochures.

How do I layout my artwork for a menu?
For design guidelines, please refer to our complimentary layout templates here. They will help you properly layout your brochures for printing.

Can you mail my menus for me?
Yes, we offer complete mailing services to help you save both time and money with your direct mail campaigns. Our services include list processing (includes CASS and NCOA certification), addressing, sorting, bundling, and delivery to USPS. To order mailing services with your menus, simply select “Inkjet and Mailprep” under the mailing services option on our instant pricing calculator.

Can takeout menus be mailed without an envelope?
Yes, takeout menus can be self-mailers. You must select at least an 80# text weight to meet USPS regulations. For best quality, we recommend 100# text weight or a cover weight.

What’s the difference between each paper stock?
Gloss paper stocks will have a shiny appearance and are great to use for fun, family friendly restaurants. Matte paper stocks have a velvet finish and thus less shine, which gives your menu an elegant look and is great for fine dining. 70# and 80# gloss text are very lightweight and economical paper stocks. 70# uncoated text is a high quality, bright white uncoated paper stock, which makes it great for writing and forms. 100# text is a high quality, medium weight paper and is our most popular option. 80# and 100# cover stocks offer a premium feel to your menus as they are thicker and heavier than text weight stocks.

Uploading files: You can upload files directly to this product page by clicking "Upload Your File & Order Now". Or, if you prefer to send your files a different way, you can send files here.

If you need any help with creating your print ready artwork, please give us a call at 800-227-7377 or email us at info@uspress.com.

Proofing: After you place your order and upload your artwork, our prepress team will begin inspecting your files to ensure your document size, bleed lines, margins, image resolution, and more are correct in order for the best print quality. They will email you a soft proof (PDF) for your approval prior to printing. Most proofs are sent within 1 business day of order placement; more complex art files can sometimes take longer. Soft proofing is an easy way to see what your finished product will look like and make sure the content is correct. However, soft proofing is not intended for exact color matching. Every monitor displays color differently, and on backlit screens, colors may appear lighter than the actual colors contained in your files. If color matching is critical, please give us a call at 800-227-7377 to order a hard proof.

Production Time: Production time begins after proof approval and is the time required to produce your order before it ships. It is calculated in business days, starting at the next occurrence of 9:00 AM Eastern on the 1st business day after the proof is approved. U.S. Press is closed Saturdays, Sundays and all major holidays; thus, these days are not included in the production schedule.
