Signs and graphics help to create engaging and welcoming interiors, attracting, informing, guiding and protecting customers and also promoting your services. Making sure your customers feel comfortable in your premises is important, as this is one of the key reasons they will return.
With the hospitality industry stepping into the second phase of reopening, allowing customers to dine inside from May 17th, you might be looking to upgrade your interiors.
What does good signage achieve?
Help keep your visitors safe and guide them around your premises using a range of signage solutions. From wayfinding systems to sanitiser stations and menu boards to pop-up banners, signs and graphics make a big impact on a customer’s experience. Imagine walking into a restaurant with no signage, you wouldn’t know if you should wait to be seated, or find a table yourself, where the bar or toilets are, or what food and drink are being served. Signs and graphics will help:
- Attract new customers and welcome back old ones.
- Promote the food, drinks or services you’re offering, plus any special offers.
- Inform people that you’ve reopened, your opening times and any new guidelines you have in place.
- Protect staff and customers by advising on Health and Safety measures.
- Create personality and an an enjoyable atmosphere for your establishment.
