Menu size laminating pouches come in two sizes to offer your restaurant more options. The first option measures 11 ½" x 17 ½" while the other is slightly larger at 12" x 18". Both menu pouches are built to work perfectly with A3 tabloid size menu pages, which measure 11" x 17". The smaller size offers a 1/2" border on all sides when laminated centered, which allows enough room for many kinds of binding supply options, as well as enough space to protect against inevitable spills from customers and staff. The 12" x 18" menu pouch option has a much larger border of 1" all around, which allows for even more binding opportunities and even greater protection of your menu pages. You can center your page in the pouch, or increase the binding edge for more print visibility by placing your page off-center and allowing for a wider binding edge than outside edge. It is recommended to leave at least 1/4" to 1/2" minimum border on all edges for optimum defense against damaging elements. Most restaurants will choose to buy menu laminating pouches online in the thickest 10 mil preference, as it provides the most durability and protection, with the thickest and most rigid finish; but they are also available in 3 mil, 5 mil, and 7 mil thicknesses. Use these laminating pouches with any pouch laminator that is wide enough to handle the smallest dimension to create a durable menu page that will last through heavy handling.
