Yes - we can, and we do. And if you really want to, you can too, if you have the right printer and the right 'paper'.
Here we discuss why you might want to print on waterproof paper, and then we look at some of the options of how you might go about it.
I suppose a good place to start is to ask just how waterproof do you need them? Rainproof? Wipeable? Washable? Dishwasher proof? Underwater or submersible proof?
Why would you want to print on waterproof paper?
What are your options?
Do it yourself? If you change the contents of your menu very often and you are only one small operation, this is possibly a good option:
Get some waterproof/plastic 'paper' from your local internet shops. Be careful to bear in mind the printer you already have... you need to ensure that the plastic paper you buy will work on your printer! Or you can always find the 'waterproof paper' you like and get the right printer to print on it.
Get a commercial printer to do it? Special materials and commercial print equipment allow different and better results. If you set your menu and then run with the same dishes for at least a few months, start talking to your local printer shop. A local printer you can actually meet or even speak to over the phone and discuss your needs. Or you can get samples from printers on the internet and go with one of them.
Now you are reading this on the blog of SuperTuffMenus - funnily enough, our menus are waterproof!
Amazing! Who'd have thought that? ;-)
They are guaranteed not to go soggy or peel apart in the first year of use!
SuperTuffMenus can be washed in hot soapy water several times a day if needs be.
We even have restaurant customers that wash their SuperTuffMenus in a glasswasher several times a day. Yep. And they still look good after a year. That really is a waterproof menu.
