Before proceeding to make food vouchers for your restaurant or fast-food chain, you must first determine its value whether it's going to be monetary or not.

When creating vouchers, coupons, or admission tickets, it's important that you figure out a way to track or monitor them.

Come up with a way for you to track your vouchers by using a spreadsheet, a voucher numbering system, or an actual third-party app that you can download online.

If you plan on using stock images that you can get online, make sure that they're high-quality and not watermarked.

The front side should indicate the name of the establishment, a text that serves as a heading, and its monetary value (or percent rate for discount vouchers). The back, on the other hand, should contain the terms and conditions that a customer should know when redeeming the voucher's value, and it should be written in the appropriate format.

6. Print the Needed Number of Vouchers
