Order pad printing
Order pads have for decades been a standard at virtually every dining establishment. From restaurants to bars to beer gardens, they’re used wherever orders are taken or bills issued. And paper order pads are still highly relevant even in a digital age. They also make effective giveaways at trade fairs or events. Here at print24.com, you can have order pads printed, in top quality and at low online prices. Our modern print shop offers state-of-the-art technology and contemporary printing processes, which can easily create batches of up to 20,000 pads per order.
An order pad at a beer garden or bar is just as essential as the menus or friendly staff themselves. Food and drink requests or telephone bookings can all be noted down in a jiffy. It’s up to you which information or tables you wish to print on the pad. For example, you can add a column for order numbers, which can later be entered into a computer system to ensure proper accounting. You can also print a grid for meal categories, so your staff simply have to tick the relevant box, making it easier for them to take orders. If you have any questions about creating a print file or need tips on printing your custom order pads, you are welcome to contact us by telephone.

The perfect giveaway for trade fairs and events
Although the term “order pad” may be somewhat misleading, these pads are also ideal for trade fairs and other events. For example, you can distribute them as giveaways to potential customers, who can then use them to make notes about your products. Or you can distribute order pads with forms in your corporate design, so your customers can use them for their own notes. You can design the pads however you wish and can add further effects, e.g. by printing in special colours. Possible options for promotional gifts include pads for classic card games, or you can print them with tables for “shopping lists”.
First and foremost, an order pad needs to be a hand size and not take up too much space. That’s why we offer you pads in 70 x 140-mm format, allowing you to choose between 25 or 50 sheets. The order pads are glued at the top and feature grey cardboard backing for added strength. They are printed in portrait format only.
Printer-friendly paper for subsequent processing
We print your order pads on bright white offset paper suitable to use in copiers and laser printers. This is practical if you wish to print out invoices for your customers. Environmentally conscious customers can choose bright white premium recycled paper with a grammage of 80 gsm. It bears the “Blue Angel” environmental seal and is FSC-certified. With a grammage of 90 gsm, the high-quality offset paper is somewhat more robust.
A variety of printing options for your order pads
Regardless of which paper you choose, you have access to various printing options. We print order pads single-sided only. In addition to the classic black and CMYK printing processes, we also offer special colours, plus gold and silver. With Pantone, you can choose from various special colours. Gold, silver and Pantone can each be combined with black-and-white or CMYK four-colour printing. You may like to add your logo or the name and address of your dining establishment in the header. Special colours work perfectly here, while tables or forms are classically kept black. Individual elements within the tables, like boxes for prices or table numbers, can equally be printed in colour, making the pad clearer and easier to read. Tailor your pad’s colour scheme to your needs. You are also welcome to contact our service team if you have any queries. We’ll be happy to assist you by telephone.
Practical: Previewing your order pads as a screenproof or paperproof
print24 gives you the opportunity to order a digital or hard-copy preview of your print order for a small surcharge. Please note that either option may only be ordered once per print order. In the case of a digital screenproof, we create an image file of your print product and store it in your customer account. You can view the result on your screen, and decide whether you wish to start or modify the order. When making your selection, please note that screenproofs are not true-colour, and the colours of the finished product may differ from the original.
If you opt for a paperproof, we’ll simulate your print (CMYK and Pantone) on Epson Standard Proofing Paper using the CMYKcmkk 8-colour printing process. Please note here that, due to technical reasons, colour discrepancies may arise over large areas, which is why we recommend printing these areas in special colours (Pantone). Once we have created your paperproof, we’ll post it out to the address stored in your customer account by the next working day. Please understand that, for administrative reasons, it is not possible to send paperproofs to an alternative address.
Printing orders from batches as small as 25
At print24.com, we print order pads from batches as low as 25, allowing even smaller dining establishments to enjoy personalised printed dining accessories without having to order huge quantities. But, thanks to modern printing processes, we can just as easily create large batches of up to 20,000 items per order. You can determine how many order pads you want by simply clicking your configuration menu. The price for printing and shipment automatically adjusts after each new selection.
