X-long menu cards can be described as narrow and long in shape. It is a very versatile dimension as it can serve as all types of menus, depending if it’s single-sided, double-sided or folded. The format of X-long menu cards allows them to be easily stored and distributed to guests, but are also small enough to be left on a table without taking too much space. This option allows guests to consult the menu as they wish.
Bars with extensive drink options such as beers, wines, cocktails, shots, hot drinks, soft drinks and long drinks are particularly fond of this format as it allows to coherentently list all their options in a structured manner, easy to follow for their guests. This way, these menus can be left around for guests to order when they are ready.
