Paper or plastic? Many restaurants face this question each and every year when deciding upon menu covers and placemats. The throw away costs of paper menus and paper placemats often add up, knowing that paper menu’s rip, get dirty and might last a week at best. Paper placemats are always a once and done solution and many restaurant managers are turning to an inexpensive vinyl menu cover to protect their printed menu cards.
A clear double pocket menu cover is often a simple solution and for just a few dollars, the benefit of a more sturdy investment can soon be realized. With good care, a plastic or vinyl menu cover can last 2-3 years and sturdy leather-lke placemats can last even longer.
Call your menu cover supplier if you have questions, they should be able to help you understand the value of plastic over paper and help you reduce your menu and placemat costs.
