“We can't help but owe the success of one of our busiest weeks to date to the Cushing team! From start to finish, they are always so great to work with and really helped drive our restaurant opening home despite the tight deadlines and unique use of materials. We couldn't have done it without their hustle, patience, and enthusiasm. Thank you team Cushing!!”

How can we help your business grow?

Menu Boards

Your lunch rush is a beautiful thing. How do you keep the queue moving so you can satisfy customers?  Menu boards catch the eye, sum up your dining options and provide branding opportunity. We specialize in short run, oversized sign printing, can assist with prototypes and produce orders for one to 250 boards every day.  Choose from dozens of substrates such as ultraboard, styrene and sintra.  And learn more about our custom die cutting router here in downtown Chicago.

Savory Signage

Custom vinyl window graphics turn your storefront into a tastefully effective welcome (and marketing) sign. Use strategically placed interior wall signage to keep your brand top of mind when customers enter. Add signage to your building exterior, permanent or semi-permanent adhesive wall graphics or vinyl window coverings to attract more customers and stand out from other dining establishments.

We’ll help you stand out so you can keep the focus on the food.

Explore how Chick-fil-A in downtown Chicago used custom window graphics to attract new customers.

“When we needed an exterior sign for our new Lincoln Park location, we worked with Cushing.  They consulted us on the best placement of the graphics and from printing to install, were great to work with. Matt Cushing and their staff are friendly and helpful.”
More than Menus

Printed menus are a great way to connect with curious customers who stop by, take a look around and think about coming back to grab a future meal. Let’s make the next printed version of your menu special. We offer a variety of folding options to make it easy for patrons to discover your wonderful entrées, specials or delivery services.  Choose from trifolds, bifolds or gate folds.

Count on Cushing to print collateral they will read and keep.

Trust Cushing With Your Rush Orders

We provide lamination, score & fold, aqueous coating and custom die cutting for rounded edges or non-traditional sizes.

Located in downtown Chicago, rely on Cushing for your rush orders. We can be there on time, even when you need to review a proof.

“Some of the projects that we think are ready for print and send to Cushing actually end up needing an unanticipated last-minute change. Cushing always works with us in a timely manner to make sure that even these last-minute changes are appropriately made, and that everything gets to where it needs to go, when it needs to be there.”
Power of POP

Keep them informed with printed material at the point of purchase. Encourage reviews, email newsletter subscriptions or simply promote a new item. Use signage to spotlight smiling staff members or your mission. Promote daily specials, upcoming events or facts about the ingredients you use. We are distributors of 3 to 4 lines of pop up banner stands and can elevate your seasonal promotional signage customers view while waiting in the line.

Temporary or permanent, POP signage completes the customer experience.

Cross media marketing enhances your email list, customer promotions and overall marketing outreach.

  • How do you know who is paying attention to your restaurant promotions?
  • What if you could find out who is interested in booking private parties?
  • Would it be helpful to discover new menu items or menu ideas customers are interested in?
  • Could you customize your promotions by understanding what your customers click?

Provide client and prospect activity to your event planning professional to determine if articles and content are generating interest. Create more opportunities for private parties, facility rentals or restaurant events.

And, don’t forget to tell your event planners we are specialists at printing custom step and repeat backdrops!
