Ok.  Red could be a little bit darker.  The last step is to choose a
good type of paper and avoid lamination.  Laminated menu cards are
only good for fast food restaurants.  They always look cheap.

Menu cards printed on plain paper look more more elegant.  You need
more copies then, but you also save the money for lamination.

Paper looks more elegant if it's a bit brownish instead of white.
However, I fear that you don't have much freedom here because people
expect that rice is white.

If you prefer lamination though, ask your printer whether the menu
card is machine-washable.  Otherwise lamination is useless and the
money is wasted.

Microsoft isn't the answer. Microsoft is the question, and the answer is NO.
