There are nonetheless solutions for those who wish to use A5 cards without sacrificing some menu items; that is using double-sided or folded menu cards. If you wish to double the space, use a double-sided menu. If you wish to quadruple the space available, opt for a half-fold menu card
. If you wish for anywhere between six to eight sides, opt for trifold
or Z-fold menu
