Spotlight on … Bar Tab Cards

After a very long and very tough 4-month lockdown, bars, restaurants and hospitality venues across the UK are finally throwing open their doors to the public once again.

At the top of everyone’s agenda is safety, and a lot of time, effort and money has been invested by those in the hospitality industries to get this right.

As well as expensive pods, mobile kitchens and weatherproof igloos – the humble and unassuming plastic Bar Tab Card is playing its part.

They’re a good way of ensuring your customers don’t enter the bar or queue to pay for drinks

Giving a table their own Bar Tab Card when they arrive is a good way to manage ordering and re-ordering. You don’t want people queuing at the bar to order and pay for a round of drinks.

You could make ordering entirely self-service by putting a QR code on the reverse of your Bar Tab Cards and letting the customer order from the safety of their smart phone.

The QR code could allow customers to access the menu, order and even pay at the end – all controlled by touching their own device.

Read more about how QR codes are proving to be invaluable in helping hospitality re-open safely.

Waterproof, galeproof and wipeable – ideal for the British Beer Garden

Plastic Bar Tab cards are durable and reusable, as they’re easy to sanitise after each use.

They won’t go soggy in the rain and they’ll also survive soaring temperatures, if we’re lucky enough to get any.

As well as being more generally useful than a paper or laminated ticket, they look a heck of a lot more professional too, particularly if you go for Branded Bar Tab Cards. We print ours double sided, so you could include whatever text you like on the back.

No budget for branded?
