How To Make Your Own Wedding Bar Menu And Signs

Looking for a quick and affordable way to design the perfect menu or bar signage for your wedding or event?

This post is going to give you some ideas on how to easily design and create your own beautiful menus and signs in a few minutes.

WHERE TO GET THE DESIGN

Printable Bar Menu Template

We highly recommend using a pre-designed editable digital template to design your menu or sign. We have a collection of A4 templates for bar menus and small signs that you can easily edit online and download as a printable PDF. With the freedom to change the fonts and colours, you can tailor the templates to suit your wedding or event theme.

Another benefit of using templates is that if you have any last minute changes or need to amend information, this can all be done quickly on the computer. This saves a TON of time and stress when you are under the pump trying to get everything organised for the big day.

PRINTING YOUR PDF

Once you’ve got the design sorted, you can either print your PDF at home or at an Officeworks self-serve printer (it costs about $0.50 per A4 colour page at the time of writing this post).

FRAMING YOUR SIGN

By far the most easiest and eco-friendly way to create a sturdy sign is to simply place your printed sign into a photo frame. You can recycle the paper and reuse or resell the frames after your wedding or event.

MOUNTING YOUR SIGN ONTO BOARD (TUTORIAL)

If you don’t want the hassle of finding photo frames (or perhaps you’re going for an unframed look), the next easiest option is to mount your printed page onto cardboard or foam board. The process only takes about 5 minutes all up.

 

What you will need:

  • A printed copy of your menu or sign design (the one shown here is our Mykonos design)
  • A3/A4 foam board or thick cardboard
  • Double-sided tape, glue stick or glue tape
  • Sharp craft or Stanley knife
  • Metal ruler
  • Pencil
  • Cutting mat

(All of the above can be found at Officeworks)

Directions:

1. Trim off the white edges of your printed sign. (By default, printers are unable to print backgrounds right to the edge of the page, so most print-outs will have the white border.)

2. Turn your sign around so that the white side is facing up and align it to the bottom left corner of the board. Using a ruler and pencil, mark out the trim lines on the board.

3. Using your ruler and trim marks as a guide, slowly and carefully trim the board. You may need to go over the cut a few times depending on the thickness of the board.

4. Grab your double-sided tape, glue stick or glue tape and place the adhesives onto the back of the printed sign.

5. Carefully stick the sign onto the board.

That's it! You now have a sturdy mounted sign to use at your wedding or event.
