Exterior Restaurant Sign Options
No matter the size or style of your restaurant, high-quality exterior restaurant signs can be instrumental in helping you attract new customers and establish an identity for your brand.
At JMF, we offer a wide range of exterior restaurant sign solutions; take a look below for some of our most popular:
Flat-cut lettering or logo signs are an ever-popular option for restaurants of all types.
With extensive shape and style options, as well as the ability to employ brand-specific colours, flat-cut restaurant signs offer the perfect combination of quality, utility, and creativity.
For bars, takeaways, and modern restaurants, a well-designed neon sign can make a striking statement.
At JMF, we’re experienced in the design and installation of all types of neon signs, from traditional retro styles to contemporary and bespoke creations.
If illuminated signs aren’t in keeping with the formal or rustic style of your brand, a simple hanging sign might be the ideal solution.
Hanging signs and plaques are available in a wide variety of materials, from wood and metal to glass and acrylic.
Perfect for cafes, bistros, bars, and high-street restaurants, pavement signage and banners are an excellent way to promote special offers and menu items to passers-by.
A-boards (sandwich boards) come in a range of material options, offering a low-cost, high-impact way to boost trade.
Many restaurants rely on exterior menu box signage to attract walk-in customers.
At JMF, our team can assist your company in creating on-brand exterior menu signage, with colours, images, and visual materials specifically designed to increase business.
Interior Restaurant Sign Options
While exterior signs are great for getting customers through the door, when it comes to supplying a fantastic experience, your restaurant needs to create effective interior signage.
Take a look below for some key interior restaurant sign solutions:
For a chic, contemporary look, lightbox signs are hard to beat.
Available in a wide variety of shapes and sizes, LED box signs can be used for menus, offers, or simply to promote your business’ unique personality. They can even be used as directional signs, offering a modern take on wayfinding.
Floor-standing signs are a great way to direct customers around your restaurant, as they can point them to toilets, exits, or smoking areas.
Highly visible and customisable, floor-standing signage is great for helping your company create a clear and concise customer journey.
Window and Door Signs
Part internal and part external, door and window signs are an excellent way to push your brand, without cluttering up your interior space.
For business spaces with a lot of interior glass, window manifestations can also be important (and often legally required) forms of safety signage.
For restaurants with a lot of covers, table signs can be a godsend.
Bold table number and reserved signs can be instrumental in helping your waitstaff provide a high level of service (and boost their tips!) Or, use your table tops as promotional canvases, with table talkers that highlight food and menu offers.
The menu is one form of signage you can be assured all your customers will see.
From food menus to bar menus, our expert team can help you design menus which are as informative as they are promotional.
