Smart Tips On How To Design Your Restaurant Poster
Designing a smart restaurant poster is an art, which most people fail to understand. Read below and unearth the trick on how you can do it just right!
1. Plan The Location
Just putting up a big restaurant poster in a street where there is hardly any people or crowd, will not do you much good.It will simply ensure that you are wasting your time, money and energy into something from which you will hardly get anything in return. Hence choosing an appropriate location for your restaurant poster must be your utmost concern. Try busy streets, street shopping areas, malls, and food streets, precisely try the places which will see the influx of people and will ensure that your restaurant posters catch the right eyes.
Logo designing can be done from 5k-20k and poster design cost ranges from around 7k-30k, depending on the size of the poster, the material of the poster, the content and the colours that go into making it.
2. Offers Always Work
Make sure that your restaurant poster has all the details of all the offers and discounts that customers can avail after visiting your restaurant. If your restaurant provides offers like the lucky draw, and the person who wins would be able to wine and dine at half the price, or a ladies night, or a karaoke night where you will be offering the top best singers free drinks or food, you are bound to attract a lot more people than you would normally expect. If your restaurant is located near the corporate house then, you can give discounts during the lunch hours, since you might see the influx of corporate meetings during this time. The above example explains that you must design your restaurant poster as per the targeted clients you are planning to approach.
3. Insert All Necessary Information
Your restaurant’s logo should appear prominently at the top or bottom of your restaurant poster. It should also carry further details like the opening and the closing hours.

The main motive of your restaurant poster must be to attract your customers, then inculcate interest and then ignite a desire within your customers.
