Vancouver Restaurant Signage for Reopening or New Hours

Restaurant signage is a simple, cost-effective way of advertising reopening or new hours now that COVID-19 restrictions have relaxed, and businesses get somewhat back to normal. Because of earlier restrictions, restaurants will need ways to communicate their reopening, new hours, and any BC Restart Plan Phase 3 restrictions that customers and staff must follow.

Since 1994, Sandbox Signs + Graphics has created sign packages for restaurants in Vancouver and other Lower Mainland, BC cities. View our gallery of restaurant signage and read more about signs for food and beverage businesses.

Benefits of Restaurant Signs

Restaurant signage does much more than advertise menu features and specials. Signage is also a customer service tool, communicating important information to patrons and saving your staff time in answering repetitive questions that could easily be answered by a thoughtfully designed, well-placed sign.

Restaurant signs are:

  • Available in many forms for different purposes
    Including free standing easel signs, framed or foam core mounted posters, banners (cloth or vinyl), tabletop displays, or adhesive vinyl.
  • Cost effective
    A collection of signs for your restaurant entrance, door, reception area, and service sections won’t break the bank.
  • Portable in most cases
    Many signs, such as banners, freestanding easel signs, and table-top displays are portable so you can easily move them to a different location in the restaurant.
  • A communication tool that prevents confusion and frustration
    Restaurant signage is first and foremost a basic, yet necessary communication tool. Even before your customers enter your restaurant, signs can clearly answer the many questions returning or new customers may have about your business “rules”, restrictions, hours, and expectations of customers, now that COVID-19 restrictions have relaxed.
