Menu covers are an important addition to any restaurant. Not only do they serve as a way of adding personalization and decoration to a restaurant’s menus, but as protection. This is why some places that manufacture menu covers offer single or double stitching. If you are unsure of the difference between a single stitched menu cover versus a double stitched menu cover, then please read below.
A single stitch menu cover allows for a binding around the edges of the menu cover. It helps keep the menu in place as it keeps dirt out. This aids in protecting the menu from harm. However, a double stitched menu cover is said to offer more protection. This is because it acts as an even greater barrier to dirt and crumbs that can possibly make their way into the menu cover, causing damage to the menu.
There is some controversy on single and double stitching, so it is up to you to make the decision. Nevertheless, the quality of thread and binding used are very important too. They need to be durable as to prevent from fraying.
If you are concerned about the menu covers that you intend to order, ask about the stitching and see what the restaurant supply company has to say about the quality of their stitching and binding before you order any.
