Mexican Restaurant Sign Styles that Get Your Business Noticed

Mexican restaurants, with their spicey and deliciously flavored foods, put us in a festive mood. Meanwhile, California has the highest number of Mexican Restaurants in the United States. In fact,  industry reports put the numbers at nearly 75,000 for 2021. With that much competition comes the need for commercial signage that sets you apart from the rest. However, what’s the best way to do this? To answer that, we’ve put together a guide of Mexican restaurant sign styles that help get your business noticed.

Channel Letter Signs – El Dorado

El Dorado Mexican Restaurant Channel Letter Sign

The legend of El Dorado and its treasures enticed the Spanish Conquistadors to come to Mexico and South America to find it. Likewise, diners today are lured to the popular El Dorado Mexican Restaurant by their densely packed menu of all the usual tasty suspects and the bold & gold channel letter sign on the building’s facade.

 Neon Restoration Sign – Pepe’s 

Pepes Neon Sign Restoration

California has a rich history when it comes to Mexican restaurants and culture. Amazingly, several of these eating spots are still owned by descendants of the original owners. Unfortunately, as time passes by, these nostalgic and beautiful signs fall into disrepair. When they do, sign companies restore them to their original glory. The beautiful neon sign Dave Signs restored for Pepe’s is an excellent example of this.

Illuminated Sign – Beach House Tacos

The theme is sunny beaches and to-die-for tacos at Beach House Tacos in Ventura, CA. Additionally, beachgoers who wonder what good seafood and other fare await them inside are guided there by the bold, Illuminated Sign.  Barn lighting illuminates eye-catching dimensional letters and gives them a drop shadow effect.

Made to Last – Spencer Mackenzie’s

Spencer Makenzie's Neon Sign

Spencer Makenzie’s, like Beach House Tacos, offers Mexican food oceanside. Of course, the sea spray can be tough on any beachside sign. Therefore, a rugged design is a must-have. Dave’s Signs creates beachfront signs that can withstand the surrounding ocean elements, while still grabbing passerby’s attention.

Grand Opening – Fast Food Mexican Restaurant Sign for Lalo’s Jr

Fast Food Mexican Sign

Hospitality Signage Ideas that Enhance the Guest Experience

Hospitality signs direct guests to where they need to go and be. Without them, they find navigating the building and ground a virtual maze. Of course, experiences like this are frustrating to them. Therefore, you can rely on excellent hospitality signage to enhance the guest experience. No matter what the reasons guests head to a hotel, one thing is clear:  They want every aspect of their stay to be easy and as streamlined as possible. 

Below are a few excellent examples of hospitality signage ideas that help guests plan and enjoy their stay.

For Clarity& Simplification

    • Entrance & exit signs: Signs at the entrance & exit are typically the first part of the guest experience. Because of this, strategically placed, colorful monument signs let guests know how to get in and out of your business.

    • Illuminated signs: Eye-catching illuminated hotel signage leads guests to the right place. They simplify and improve their stay. For instance, the illuminated blade sign we created for Castillo Inn at the Beach lets Beachgoers know at a glance if there are vacancies or not.

Hospitality Signage

For Relaxation & Safety

    • Maps and directional signs  Guests expect relaxation and organization during their vacation or staycation. So, clear maps and directional signs at check-in counters, rooms, and corridors really elevate the guest experience by helping guests quickly find their way around.
    • Safety signage:  Safety directional signage assists people, including those who are handicapped, in finding anything from the elevators to an escape route during an urgent evacuation scenario. Above all, hotels must meet ADA standards. If they don’t – they are at serious risk of facing large fines. Dave’s Signs knows all the ADA rules and can help with these special types of hotel signs.

 

For Branding & Satisfaction

    • Hotel wayfinding signs: Wayfinding signs help people navigate their way around the building. They create a consistent and seamless experience for hotel guests. Furthermore, hospitality wayfinding signs also maintain branding. This ensures that all signs look the same around the entire property.  The best part about wayfinding signs? It’s like having an attendant in every area of your hotel. Your guest has a question, they find the answer, they follow the answer, and voila! They’re satisfied.

Lightbox Sign Styles That Help Rev Up Your Advertising Game

A Lightbox Sign is a type of sign that is commonly used for shopping malls, auto dealerships, gas stations, retail locations, and more. All of which use the advantage that extra visibility brings.

These cabinet-style signs, with their LED or neon illumination, provide visibility for your message. What’s more? Because they are highly visible night and day, they help rev up your advertising game 24/7.

Lightbox Signs Promote Your Brand Long-term

Professional lightbox signs are made of highly durable materials. These premium materials allow their use in just about any location. Additionally, these materials will work to promote your brand for the long term.

We’ve listed a few examples of different lighted box signs that help amplify your exposure.

Lightbox Design for Multi-Tenant Signs

Lightbox sign

Driving around, you’ve probably noticed Muti-Tenant signs. For example, take the pylon sign Dave’s Signs retrofitted for Mountain Gate Plaza. Mounted to a two-legged pylon, this sign contains a lightbox design with removable panels. Also, the design ensures every business listed gets maximum visibility.

Lighted Restaurant Sign

Lighted cabinets display the name and logo details of dining establishments. These nuances make for some memorable decor, as well. An outside LED lightbox sign like the one we created for Midici’s is a good example of this. Meanwhile, the beautiful sign guides customers in. It also gives them an incentive to stick around and have some delicious wood-fired pizza.

Special Construct Lightbox Sign 

Exterior lighted cabinets mounted on poles display vibrant features. They make your business almost impossible to miss. Dave’s Signs can expertly install them on tall poles or other special constructions.

Illuminated Sign Cabinet for Veterinary Care 

Illuminated sign boxes are often used for displaying the name, logo, and contact information. That aspect is helpful for various veterinary and healthcare businesses. The one we did for the Port Hueneme Animal Hospital promotes the brand from the moment you walk up to it and go in.

Lightbox Cabinet for Grocery Stores & Shopping Malls

Lightbox Sign for Red Barn Market
LED lightboxes establish a prominent visual identity at grocery stores, plazas and malls. They help your store stand out among other distractions. The overall effect of Red Barn Market’s red theme creates an ideal identification point. The familiar brand displayed welcomes you into its doors.

Lighted Box Signs for the Office

We’ve looked at exterior lightbox signs up until this point. However, they are also an ideal solution for the interior branding of an office. In fact, interior lighted box signs can provide a brilliant, lasting glow to any office.  Display your company logo at the entrance of the office or in the reception area. That way, the sign reinforces your brand identity where the customer experience starts.

Channel Letter Signs Make Customers Aware of Your Business

Channel Letter Signs are a very popular advertising tool. Their distinctive bold designs stand out and make customers aware of your business and brand.  Also, some of the biggest national brands around the world use channel letters to advertise and promote their products and services.

What are Channel Letter Signs?

Woodland Hills Sign Company

Gorgeous channel lettering defines this type of sign. Sign companies make channel lettering by cutting letters out of aluminum or by forming them from plastic. Once they cut them, they mount the letters on a backplate. When designed properly, channel letter signs look beautiful and can turn your business into a landmark. They are used for the interior or exterior of commercial or public buildings.

Main Types of Channel Letter Signage

BRENDAN'S CHANNEL LETTER SIGN

Typically, signage with channel lettering comes in varying configurations. However, the following three designs are the most popular:

    • Open and closed face.
    • Halo-lit, front-lit and reverse-lit.
    • Self-standing style or plate mounted.

These three basic configuration types of interior and exterior signs lead to several, versatile shapes and sizes. Custom Channel Letter Signs have the ability to turn your business into a landmark.

3 Benefits of Channel Letter Signs

BUFFALO EXCHANGE CHANNEL LETTER SIGN

  • Visibility – Channel letters appear bigger than two-dimensional signs since they have more physical depth – a 3D effect if you will. That makes them highly visible to passers-by.
  • Uniqueness – These signs are highly customizable, thereby making them reflect your brand voice superbly. For instance, the use of distinctive color matching schemes makes your company’s font and logo appear professional and unique.
  • Luminosity – Luminosity can certainly leave a memorable impression on passersby and elevate your business. To make channel lettering shine brilliantly, we can customize and add additional allure to numbers and letters. We can also use a balanced mix of color-changing neon, LEDs, or shiny new letter colors.

 

Premium Signage Starts Here

Dave’s Signs often takes on projects for national companies, such as Acura, Giorgio Armani, and AT&T. But we aren’t too big to handle signs for small businesses either like Garry Marshall Theatre, The Lido Apartments, and Toppers Pizza Place. You may have seen them on your travels or if you live in Southern California.

3 Multi-Tenant Sign Designs That Attract More Tenants

Eye-catching, Multi-Tenant Sign Designs make a huge impact and attract more tenants.  Typically seen outside of a business, they are a critical component in the promotion of commercial properties with multiple tenants in one physical location. Dave’s Signs has put together the following guide that showcases some of the best custom Multi-Tenant Signs that we’ve designed and installed.

But first, let’s discuss the difference between Multi-Tenant Signs and Directory  Signs since they look very similar.

Multi-Tenant Signs vs. Directory  Signs

351 HITCHCOCK WAY OFFICE DIRECTORY MONUMENT SIGN

Outside Multi-Tenant Signs and Directory  Signs can look similar, but their functions are different.

Businesses in shopping malls and business parks use directory signs like the one we did above to stand out and grow their brand. They also act as Wayfinding Signs for occupants. The sign has a set amount of display spaces. As new businesses are introduced or depart, the display spaces are regularly updated.

Comparatively, a Multi-Tenant Sign is large, freestanding signage made up of divided tenant panels in sections. Unlike Directory Signs, they typically tell you what tenant, business, etc is in the complex – not where you can find them. Since the panels in both types of signs are removable, changing a name is easy.

Custom Designs

Depending on your business needs and your zoning ordinances, Dave’s Signs can create your custom Multi-Tenant Sign in many different designs and ways. Here are a few to consider:

Multi-Tenant Sign Designs #1: Pylon Sign Mounted

Driving around, you’ve probably noticed Muti-Tenant signs such as this impressive one we created for Mountain Gate Plaza. Mounted to a two-legged pylon, this sign is very tall and wide. It ensures every business listed gets maximum visibility.

Multi-Tenant Sign Designs #2: Monument Multi-Tenant Signs


Multi-Tenant Monument Signs are stylish and smooth.  Additionally, they are a surprisingly very cost-effective way to promote your office park or shops. For instance, the Kanan Village example we created here is a perfect example of a monument sign that has a smooth, artistic flair.

Multi-Tenant Sign Designs #3: Monument Signs that Accentuate Your Location

Multi-Tenant Monument signs crafted from wood and masonry give a professional, rustic touch. Also, these types of signs often have a stone base. The one we created for Red Horse Plaza accentuates the plaza without being a distraction to pedestrians and drivers.
