Use a balanced font style
Give careful consideration when choosing the font style for your menu QR code design. Finding fonts that are both balanced and complimentary to your restaurant concept makes your menu QR code a well-designed concept.
You can use one font style or two in designing your menu QR code. If you opt to choose two fonts, make sure that they both complement each other. It is essential to identify the concept you want to present in your menu QR code design.
If you’re aiming for a professional look, here are some suggested fonts: Baskerville, Bodoni, Didot, and Garamond. For a modern, minimal vibe, you can use Avante Garde, Bebas, Gill Sans, and Helvetica.
While you can use two fonts from the abovementioned styles, you can also experiment a little and just opt to use one font. You can play with different weights and styles or put them in a bold or italic typeface.
Find the right color scheme
One rule of thumb in designing a menu QR code is that the foreground color should always be darker than the background color.
Follow this guideline when you use MENU TIGER to customize your menu QR code. It will help improve your QR code’s readability so that your customers can scan it seamlessly.
While using the Canva integration of MENU TIGER, make sure that the background of your QR code does not overwhelm the main focus of your tabletop medium.
Include a call to action (CTA)
A call-to-action phrase does two things: it gives users a little hint about the data within a QR code and it moves them to take action.
Adding them to your menu QR codes is a great way to invite or prompt customers to scan the code for their dining transactions.
Diverse senses are evoked in your clients by different call-to-action phrases. “Scan the QR code to order,” for instance, conveys a sense of urgency to persuade users to act right away.
