If you've followed BrandPacks for any amount of time, you'll no doubt know we have a vast array of menu templates for Photoshop & Illustrator. But were you aware we have a range of free menu templates so you can take our layouts for test drive?
Well, after reading this post, we're sure you will.
We create menus that are easy to edit, whether you prefer photoshop, illustrator
When it comes to the print industry, I'm a big believe that – outside of packaging – the hospitality sector will remain an important segment of the market for many years to come. Sure, some restaurants now use tablets and digital screens for ordering, but most still prefer a good ol' printed menu.
These templates come in both Photoshop PSD & Illustrator Ai formats. As with all our templates, these designs start their life on an Illustrator canvas, meaning they're vector-based and scaleable, making it easy for you to change sizes.
I'm featuring these at #1 as they're my favourite free menu design on BrandPacks. Featuring a variety of text layout options and a clean, contemporary style, these menus are a practical choice for a wide range of restaurants.
In the years since we released this freebie, it's garnered tens of thousands of downloads – and for good reason too. Originally intended as a design for our premium library, we decided to share this menu layout for free with our readers and show off just how good our menus can be. And wouldn't you agree, this is a fine example?
As the second ever design published in our free templates category, it's not surprising that this template has become one of our most popular. The design is simple, adaptable and perfectly-suited to bars & restaurants with small craft beer menus.
DL cards & menu layouts are two of our most popular categories, with this Free DL Menu Rack Card Template being a prime example of how useful they can be. Included in this download are 4 unique pages, giving you plentiful options for designing a compact DL menu flyer.
If you prefer working in Adobe Illustrator, I think this template is fantastic choice. Whilst it doesn't have a large number of text elements, it's geometric layout and illustration-centric design provides a solid foundation for building a menu from scratch – especially when working with Illustrator.
I know it's our job to make impressive templates, but sometimes, you don't need a heavily-illustrated page to be impressive. This template is very simple, offering a 2-column text, header bar for branding and a small boxed text area for contact & social media details. Graphically outstanding? Maybe not. A practical choice? Certainly!
We've billed this as a bistro menu, but really, it can be used for any type of restaurant. The non-specific design mean the large food images can easily be swapped for photos of different cuisines, making this menu design both modern and flexible.
From brunch cafes and bistros to upscale fine dining restaurants; this free menu template is an ideal choice.
The 3-column layout is simple, clean and highly flexible. Easily list starters, mains, desserts and specials, all in one A4 sized menu.
