Some things to consider:
Create a hierarchy of text with heads, subheads, and item text to guide your customer with ease. On a gas price sign, this means the price is biggest. On a price list or menu, the main category gets top billing. A general rule of thumb is for every 10 ft. of distance between your customers and the menu your text should be taller by an inch.
Properly balance the text to allow the customer to quickly move through the information efficiently so they can make their buying decision quickly and with confidence. Avoid using heavy visual weight on only one side (or screen) of the menu, it will lessen the chance customers will look elsewhere and will, instead, browse your full menu or list.
Use images sparingly but use them strategically to help guide the reader and put your products in the best light.
Make good typography decisions and use sans-serif fonts whenever possible: Serifs are those little dangly things on letters that make them look fancy. Serifs make small text easier to read, which is why these fonts are common in books and newspapers. But when it comes to digital signs and other large-format media, you'll get the best results if you focus on sans-serif fonts.
Avoid harsh contrast and color saturation—these hurt readability.
Assure adequate lighting.
Integrate your brand into any price sign, list or menu. Repeat your logo or tagline in an understated way. Sign content is most important, but you want consistency of copy and graphics across everything in your business.
