As opposed to a typical “count down” sign, the Count-Up Sign shows the progress your location is making towards the grand opening. Typically, they feature a graphic of something being “filled up” – like a cup. The closer to the top, the closer you are to opening.


This can be a fun way to engage the neighborhood in your upcoming opening.

Use an image of something related to your business…

  • Cup or Mug for a cafe
  • Wine Glass or Bottle for a wine store or wine bar
  • T-shirt for a clothing store

A month out from opening, display the sign predominately in your window. Then, each day, mark off / color in another day and fill up your sign!
