I am looking for some clever low budget signage ideas for my new location. We already have a logo and I don't want a back lit sign. Probably something low key. Seems to be what most places are doing in the area. The new location is in an area with many foodie spots on a busy corner and my signage just needs to subtly mark the spot. We are well established and most folks will find us on line as we are a destination for probably half our customers. We don't need to scream "we are here". We will have 2 smokers on the front porch puffing smoke all day to do the screaming!

Do you have windows? Window perf is an option.

What about a CNC-routed sign hanging on a bracket? http://www.ragsigns.com

It all depends on the substrate you have to work with.

I thought the same thing, being established for 3 years before our move.

Well, It took another 3 years to get up to our previous levels, So I am going the other direction by being so so obnoxiously lit up that they should be able to see us from space.

Advertise the heck out of your move, I am still surprised when I hear locals say, "We drive by here twice a day, we never realized you were here"
