A Quick Overview of Restaurant Signs

A Quick Overview of Restaurant Signs

Owners know that restaurant signs help promote their business and can help enhance the dining experience.

All restaurant owners know that restaurant signs help promote their business and can help enhance the dining experience. Not to mention, some restaurant signs are just plain helpful to have around to inform patrons of policies, traffic-flow, and other useful information that can be conveyed through strategic signage. There’s no doubt that you will require a plethora of restaurant signs to display in and around your eating establishment. The following is a quick overview of the types of signs you shouldn’t overlook as you design all your restaurant signage.

Building Signs

Building signs mark where your business is located. It should show off your restaurant’s name and even convey your unique brand. Dimensional letters, architectural signs, blade signs, custom awnings, and more can be used to distinguish your restaurant’s exterior from other buildings in your area — within permitted codes, of course. Your building signs may even require lighting systems since most restaurants and bars stay open into the evening hours.

Menu Boards

Menu boards need to display your food options, pricing, and even nutritional information like calories or dietary-restrictions. Plus, all this should be presented in an aesthetically pleasing design. If your menu items hardly ever change, invest in high-quality constructed menu boards and signs which should last your business for many years.


There are many types of restaurant signs one can use to bolster your advertising efforts. A-frame signs can alert pedestrians of daily specials or drink options. If these signs are made from whiteboard or chalkboard, you have the opportunity to customize your message as needed. LED signs can advertise whether your establishment is open, as well as draw attention to specialty items served. Window decals add interest to your storefront. Further, if you’re looking to expand your restaurant into catering services, vehicle graphics and wraps can promote your restaurant on the go.

Informative Signs

Smaller, informative signs can direct customers to follow instructions while visiting your eatery. There can be signs to tell guests where to wait for a hostess to seat them or signs asking visitors not to smoke around your restaurant. Some signage can tell diners where to line up to place an order and where to pick up, as well as signs near soda machines telling customers that refills are complimentary.
