Menu holders are the essential marketing tool for loads of businesses- a really low-cost way to upsell, cross sell and simply sell, sell, sell.

What is a menu holder?

The name covers a wide range of products but essentially a menu holder is an object that holds print in place. Usually manufactured in plastic (acrylic or pvc), other options include wood and metal. They come in a variety of shapes – from simple single sided holders to multiple facings designed to maximise the number of messages – and a variety of sizes, usually based around the most common print sizes - DL, A6, A5 are the most popular because the essential feature of a menu holder is that it can be placed in front of customers and clients, ensuring your key messages get in front of a ‘captive’ audience.

Where to use my menu holder?

There are plenty of places to use your menu holder – and remember these are not limited to catering or hospitality venues. In fact, everywhere customers are is a good place for a menu holder:

  • In reception areas & waiting rooms
  • In showrooms and sales centres
  • In restaurants, cafes, coffee shops
  • At exhibitions, trade shows and promotional events
  • In shops, retail venues and malls as part of retail displays
  • At networking events, group meetings, societies & clubs
  • In schools, colleges and universities
  • On counters and cash desks
  • Which menu holder do I need?

    It depends on how much you have to promote. If you have lots of print with lots of different messages then you are probably better off choosing menu stands with lots of facings. For fewer messages, use fewer facings.

    Acrylic or PVC?

    For most people the only noticeable difference is in price with PVC menu stands costing less than an acrylic equivalent. Acrylic is less brittle and stronger than PVC and products made from it are likely to last longer than their PVC equivalents. But for low traffic areas or less usage, PVC is the a great choice.
