Fancy a Brew? Cafe Signs and Coffee Shop Signs

As the owner of a café or coffee shop, you never want to settle for second best when it comes to your business signage. Effective interior and exterior signage can serve to attract customers and promote your unique brand identity, regardless of whether you’re a local teashop or a nationwide chain.

At JMF Group, we have spent the last 40 years assisting cafés of all shapes and sizes in selecting the most appropriate signage for their businesses. We’re a one-stop shop that covers everything, from design and production to installation and maintenance—our UK-wide staff are here to manufacture and supply bespoke café signage of the highest quality.

Contact us today to learn more about our signs and services, or keep reading for details about some of the different types of café and coffee shop signage we supply.

Exterior Signs for Cafes and Coffee Shops

Exterior signs, regardless of the size or style of your café, can attract people walking by, and leave a great first impression whether they decide to pay you a visit or not.

We provide a comprehensive range of cafe signs at JMF; have a look below for some of our most popular.

Flat-Cut Signs

For cafés of every sort, flat-cut lettering or logo signage is an ever-popular choice.

Flat-cut manufacturing provides the ideal blend of quality, durability, and creativity, with numerous shape and design choices, as well as the capacity to display your business’ brand colours.

Neon Signs

A well-designed neon sign may make a bold statement for contemporary cafés or those restaurant/bistros that employ an American diner motif.

We have extensive experience in the design and installation of neon signs to suit every space, with eco-friendly micro neon options that can help you to reduce your carbon footprint.

Hanging Signs

If illuminated signs don’t account for your brand’s traditional or rustic aesthetic, a simple hanging sign may be the best alternative.

Hanging signs and plaques are available in several material options, including wood, metal, glass, and acrylic. They’re also ideal businesses without large exterior facades, alerting the community to your existence in a discreet but noticeable manner.

Pavement Signs

Pavement sandwich boards and A-frames are ideal for promoting special discounts and menu items to the customer on the street.

Sandwich boards are made of plywood and may be laminated with veneers, MDF, OSB, or chipboard. Ideal for making an impression on busy high streets and shopping locations.

Menu Signs

Exterior menu signage is used by many cafés and restaurants to generate walk-in custom.

Our design team can work directly with you to create menu-based restaurant and café signage that is on-brand and designed to stand out.

Interior Signs for Cafes and Coffee Shops

When it comes to delivering a fantastic customer experience, it’s not enough to rely on your exterior café or coffee shop signs; effective indoor and directional signs are vital to make your customers comfortable in your space, and keep them coming back.

Lightbox Signs

Lightboxes, with their sleek design and quick installation, are a great choice for your indoor cafe signs.

Powered by LED, lightboxes are incredibly versatile: they can be used to display menus, food specials, or simply to distinguish your business’ personality.

Floor-Standing Signs

Floor-standing signs are an excellent choice for guiding visitors around your café or restaurant. They can point them in the direction of exterior seating and smoking areas, or advise them of the location of restrooms and fire exits.

When it comes to developing a safe flow and an effective customer journey, floor-standing café signage is an excellent solution.

Window and Door Signs

Door and window signs offer a fantastic method for publicising your business while allowing you to save floor space.

Window manifestations are important (and often legally required) safety signs for cafés, bars, restaurants, and many business spaces with a lot of interior glass, so choose a sign company who will create and install them correctly and with your unique branding.

Table Signs

Table number and reserve signage can be extremely useful in helping your waitstaff provide

incredible service (and raising their tips!)

Alternatively, use your table tops as a marketing tool, with table talkers that highlight cuisine and menu specials.

Your Cafe or Coffee Shop Menu

The one form of signage you can be sure all your customers will see is your menu.

Our team of specialists can help you develop menus that are both informative and promotional, whether you run a café, a teashop, or a traditional English pub.
