Menu size????

Hi ladies~ Since Im on a roll haha my next project is menus- BUT what size???


Im having my napkins folded like the one pocket kind and didn't know 'about' how wide that is?


I am using all paper-source stuff and was just going to use 8.5 X 11 paper...


Also any menu pictures would be great help for inspiration- got to get the creativity rolling haha

I would guess 5x7. But, I don't know how big the napkins are. Will they fold the napkin to fit the manu card? Or will you have to make your menu card sized to fit the napkin? Maybe call and find out?


Sorry, I don't have any inspiration pics. My menu is pretty boring, just text. On yours you could take that swirly graphic from your invitation and place it on the menu card off to one side and enlarged. Then make it faded and in the background of the menu. Then with your rad fonts, that could look nice. Let me know if you'd like some help.


Good luck!

I was just at a wedding a few weeks ago, and they did the menus in the pocket thing.  I didnt take any pictures of them, but I would say that the menu was no bigger than 4in x 7in

I just designed mine, but am not somewhere that I can take a picture today.  Anyway, it would have worked if I put the paper landscape and cut it into 1/2s or 1/3s.  I liked the look of thirds best.  My place will fold it into what fits the menu though, so you want to check on that.  They told me that their napkins were 19" x 19".  I folded the top down and up to make thirds, them sideways folded it in fourths to fit.  I don't know if you can picture what I mean, but hopefully that info will help!

Thanks ladies! ~I want to get this stuff made~ but don't want to rush and mess it up, you know?

My plan was to use the same paper as my invites and cut an 8.5x11 in half landscape. So the mat would be 5.5 x 8.5 (maybe cut so not so long?), and then just adhere the menu to the mat a little smaller???

Not sure how to incorporate the stamp, wanted to incorporate the damask print across the top or something? hummmm....

Wheres all the pictures ladies????? haha

HMM...you can incorporate your stamp on the mat print the menu on velum paper and attach them...that way they will see the stamp behind the menu?  Just a thought...
