We have come a long way....

My associate, Travis Summit, once again provided me with an interesting subject for our Newsletter:

“What NYC Restaurant Menus Looked Like 100 Years Ago Vs. Today ”. Travis found this article on Buzzfeed: http://www.buzzfeed.com/rachelysanders/nyc-restaurant-menus-100-years-ago . The article is fascinating and will be entertaining for hospitality professionals. Its focus is food selections and costs then and now. Some truly startling differences.

After reviewing these printed menus I began to wonder what menu covers looked like 100 or more years ago so I Googled: “19th Century Menu Covers”, and found several sites of interest. All menu covers displayed appeared to be single-panel and made from paper stock. There were some bi-folds and even a tri-fold but all appeared to be paper. If you have a free moment you may find it interesting to visit the following sites:

We have come a long way from paper menu holders and covers. Custom restaurant menu covers today are offered in an incredible variety of exciting materials and designs.
