That gloss is usually done after printing. Also after years of looking at the cost of color printing I'm still very close to ONE DOLLAR a page after we factor in cost of the printer, inks and more.
To get lower prices I find getting it printed at a print shop to beat in house printing.
I'm in the process of rolling out a new, more attractive color menu for my restaurant as opposed to the boring, tri-fold black and whites that everyone uses. I plan to print on a thicker, glossier stock and am willing to invest in a new printer. I'd really appreciate some suggestions as to what printer I should purchase and whether creating menus for 2-3 cents each is still feasible using this approach.
Thanks in advance,
