Well, maybe not in the same context as the Mariah Carey song, but sure to give you some ideas that make up those ‘happy holiday signs’ on your digital signage screens! The most looked-forward-to time of the year is just around the corner, and all the ‘closed for holidays’, ‘holiday sale’, and ‘holiday countdown’ signs are bound to be on the displays up at fairy-lit stores, offices, and restaurants!

Let’s dive in and check out these creative holiday sign ideas for your display monitors.

1. Christmas Holiday Menu Template

No festivity is complete without good food! While your staff remains busy with an avalanche of orders, make sure your restaurant menu board is no less busy delighting the customers.

The Pickcel digital menu board app comes with a range of templates for QSRs, fine diners, ice cream shops & food trucks.

Here is one design straight from our digital menu template library. This blue-and-white Christmas-themed template is childish at its heart and sends out festive vibes with all the enchanting illustrations close to those of a children’s storybook.

5. Holiday Sale Signage

Holidays are all about shopping for gifts and goodies. It’s the time of the year when ‘SALE’ is written all over retail store windows, billboards, and digital posters.

Adding a QR code can make your markdown promotions even more attractive. You can use the QR code to take offline customers online or add a dynamic discount coupon. Window shoppers and passersby can quickly scan the code and continue shopping without stepping into your store.

Here’s a simple minimalist holiday signage idea for your retail storefront display. This content uses an image background and the Pickcel QR code app.
