Illinois Restaurant Association

Event signs to online inventory tools, Cushing played a role that went beyond printed material.

Edible Arrangements

When the Illinois Restaurant Association had a challenging assignment to produce large scale, durable outdoor signage for Chicago Gourmet, their Signature event under the dome at Millennium Park, the print team was ready to assist (and whet our appetites!).

A Solid Recipe

With last minute commitments from sponsors, the team assignment included a handful of last minute changes and detailed coordination with association event planners. Cushing solved the detail and timing issues required to coordinate with The Illinois Restaurant Association and JAM Productions.


We provided an online portal to inventory and soft-proof individual signs as they were produced. This used a synchronized universal database in the portal to coordinate the over 200 individual images that are produced for this Can’t-miss Fall event.


The end result was powerful signage that provided branding opportunities and engaged attendees. If you have questions about supporting your event with graphics and support to keep the process going, we offer solutions beyond printing. File sharing kept everything in one place and the marketing team on track.
