Join Nigel French for an in-depth discussion in this video Paper choices, part of Designing a Restaurant Menu.
Your choice of paper is an important design consideration.…Should you choose to print on a colored paper stock, this is one way of…extending your range of colors.…Before committing to a specific color, though, make sure you see a proof…printed on that color.…All supply stores sell a wide range of textured papers, many of which can be…bought by the sheet.…If you're intending to print the menu insert, or indeed the whole menu on your…home desktop printer, laser printer, or inkjet printer, make sure that it's…capable of printing this particular paper stock.…
Southworth is one paper provider whose products I've used, and I've been happy with.…They have several specialty lines, Granite, Parchment, Recycled, in a range of…colors, and these are designed to be used on home desktop printers.…Another consideration is that when we see our work onscreen, the paper is…represented as white.…We can, if we intend to print on a colored paper, change the color of that paper,…or at least how it is simulated.…
