Architectural and accessibility signs
Menu boards can be as simple as a chalkboard sign on the sidewalk, or they can be complex digital display systems inside your Minneapolis store. Menu boards work well in restaurants, retail stores and even office settings, providing directions or highlighting events.
One of our special services is hand-crafted custom menu boards which allow you to match your décor with any material, shape or color. For example, this chalkboard-inspired sign for Di Bruno Bros. in Philadelphia, PA was designed for an authentic deli look, but incorporates changeable magnetic strips so someone doesn’t have to hand-write the weekly specials. And check out this custom menu board for BauHaus Brew Labs. We used a sheet of steel and framed it with the same type of recycled wood that the bar was made out of, and then added cut vinyl for the permanent beer selections. Dry-erase magnetic strips are used for posting temporary specialty batches of beer (handwritten with dry-erase markers).
Illuminated menu boards using translucent vinyl can make your food photos look delicious! Using LED lighting, we can create a low profile light box in which graphics can changed out frequently or made for more permanent applications. Front loading snap frames are an option too. These super thin lightweight displays feature color-corrected LED lighting to brightly and correctly illuminate your image. They come in a variety of sizes and are UL approved.
The ultimate in menu boards are digital display signs. The design is completely customizable to match your menu and specifications. You may choose to combine static panels with digital displays to create an affordable digital hybrid menu system. Or use a single digital unit as a stand-alone preview or promotional board.
Purchasing a digital menu system is a big decision with many factors to consider. Let us help you work through the process to make sure you are getting the right system to meet your goals.
Outdoor drive-thru menu boards and signage are becoming more and more popular. According to a USA Today article, “Industrywide, 80% of fast food’s growth over the past 10 years has been at the drive-thru.” The drive-thru lane is probably now more important than the dining room inside.
