Christmas is almost upon us and many restaurants, bars, cafes and shops will be decorating their premises and getting everyone in the holiday mood. While there’s always plenty of tinsel and glittering lights to go around, you can also create a sense of festive fun with some funky Christmas signage.
Christmas Signage Ideas
There’s a lot that you can do with just a little imagination and getting signs made up is a lot less costly than you might expect. The great news about personalised Yuletide signage is that you can use it again and again, in fact, every time you start to celebrate Christmas.
Here are some ideas to get you started:
Festive Cut Outs
How about a life size cut out of a Santa advertising your latest Christmas meal deals if you run a restaurant? You can customise it with your business logo and place your fun Santa in your window if you’re a business offering services on the high street. Of course, it doesn’t have to be Father Christmas. You can do the same with elves and reindeer or have a mix of all three.
You don’t have to struggle to find places to hang your Christmas signage if you’re running out of room. You can now get signs specially designed for the floor that look fantastic. How about a festive wreath, complete with baubles and a message from all the staff to visiting customers? This works perfectly if you have a hardwood or tiled entrance and can be laminated and, more importantly, it’s skid resistant.
Festive Event Signs
You may be running any number of events over the Christmas period that need to be advertised properly and great signage can help your promote these. If you run a bar and want your Christmas Eve celebrations to be ticket only, you can create a new sign to hang up just for the occasion. Signs don’t have to be big and bold either. Smaller table signs can have just the same impact if you get your message just right.
Christmas Window Signage
You can add a real festive feel by including window signage, including snowflakes and winter landscapes that look brilliant when installed along flickering fairy lights. You can put up quirky little Christmas messages too. How about offering a free meal to anyone with a reindeer? Or telling people that Santa is stopping at your store? If you’ve got some quirky Christmas stock in, this is the perfect place to advertise.
A lot, of course, will depend on the kind of business you run but there’s definitely plenty of scope if you have the imagination.
Working with a professional signage company, like Technical Signs, can also make a big difference. They can provide you with a whole host of signs designed to your specific requirements that you can get out each December and use for many Christmases to come.
It’s no longer enough for many businesses to simply put up their tree and blast out some Yuletide music and hope that works. Looking at areas such as signage and creating appealing or fun displays can greatly improve business over this period and set you apart from the competition.
