6 types of catalogues for your business.


Menus are an integral part of your experience in any restaurant or café. From the first glance, the menus offer an insight into the range of options available for dining experiences. But beyond simply listing dishes, menu lists are also a means to convey the aesthetic and philosophy of the restaurant or café.

Consequently, creating a menu list is a process that requires attention to detail and thought to bring out the uniqueness and personality of the restaurant.
The DigitalPro team has picked out a few of them in order to find out what best suits your business.

1.board menu

The "blackboard menu" is a popular option in the catering world especially in recent years. The reason why more and more entrepreneurs are choosing this kind of menu for their business is that they are quite flexible, since their pages can be replaced very easily. This style looks more handmade, and is considered more friendly and alternative.

As far as their design is concerned, "sky is the limit". Their presentation options can suit any type of shop. They can be made of wood, leather, fabric, and their binding can be done with clips, string, metal screws, etc.

2. Leatherette

Leatherette menus are an elegant and always classic choice for presenting the menu in a restaurant or café. These menus give a sense of luxury and quality.

Often associated with detail and attention to perfection, they are a decorative element that enhances the atmosphere of your store. Their timelessness makes them a popular choice for shops seeking to offer a luxury experience to their customers.

They are available in a wide variety of colours and textures, and also usually have options for engraved or printed logos, offering a personalised and customised result.

Cork catalogues are an ecological and sustainable choice. With their texture they offer a warmer and friendlier character to the space. It is a fairly durable material so it ensures that the catalogues will remain in good condition for a long time.

6. Wooden - Leather

The wood and leather catalogues create an impressive combination of natural materials that add luxury and warmth. The durability and natural beauty of wood with the luxury and incomparable feel of leather give us the most sophisticated effect.

There are countless options since different types of wood and various leather quality options can be chosen. Many options are even available in bookbinding.

  1. Sewn binding
  2. Integrated threading
  3. Clips or Rings

Whichever of the above options you choose, for a correct and beautiful result we suggest you to emphasize the following:

  1. Quality paper type: A solid paper of more than 150g is ideal so that the pages of the catalogue stand up and do not crease easily. Papers with a matte or glossy finish are usually a popular choice for catalogues.
  2. Rich colours: Use vibrant and rich colours that match your corporate identity.
  3. Readable font: Correct font size and clear font
  4. Good layout: The right layout helps your customers find the information they need quickly.

In conclusion, the catalogue is an important tool for a business as it acts as a communication bridge between the business and its customers.
A well-designed catalogue can impress customers and encourage them to explore products further.
The menu determines the customer experience when visiting the business. Therefore, with the proper composition and presentation of products on the menu, customers will have a better experience exploring and choosing your products!
