Menu cards/Brochures/Vistaprint???

Recommended Posts

Can someone help me out here with some direction?


I've visited VP's site and can't for the life of me figure out which bloody products to select!


I've seen on several other threads (that I can't locate now) that some folk had their menu cards printed through VP. Was that on postcards?!!


When picking the brochure, do you just forward the information you want, along with your monogram and desired pictures?


Are they worth the money it's going to cost to print them?


I don't know if it's the stress rolling in b/c we're only a month out or what?!! But HELP!!

Have you tried ordering the free samples from Vista Print? It was helpful to me to see all their products and options ... and they got it to me quickly.


I don't see why you couldn't print menu cards on postcards -- the post cards are glossy on one side and matte on the other... I would do your logo/ect on the glossy side and the actual menu on the other. Don't pay for the postcards though... you can almost always find them for free.


If you want long and slender menu cards, look at their RACK CARDS as an option.


If those don't suit your fancy, try making a mock up of what you want, in the size that you want and measure it... chances are you can find a blank product with the cardstock in the size you want.

Hey Caroline,


Here's my thread where I have my menus done using brochures - see later posts in that thread for my detailed instructions. When using brochures, you don't just forward info - you have to design them yourself using the site. It takes a bit to get used to, but start playing around with it - after you've created an account, you can use the "save for later" button to save your work and come back to it later. You can upload photos yourself on the site (for a small one-time fee, no matter how many items you use the same pic on).




I did my programs using the oversized postcards. IMO, the regular postcards would be too small for menus.


Ashrose is right - you shouldn't pay for anything on VP except shipping! Sign up for their emails and you'll be able to get almost all products for free.


Good luck!!

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
