LED diode for an LED Sign Board An LED or light-emitting diode is a small chip usually made from silicon that usually produces up to three colors, including red, green, and yellow. It is the mixture and combination of these three colors that create all the colors of the visible spectrum including blue, purple, orange and everything in between. The combination of dozens or even hundreds of these little diodes, is what creates LED Sign Boards, or LED signs.

Hundreds of these little diodes make up an LED sign board. Stacking several of these sign boards together make up large LED sign boards. Concerts and Mega Churches utilize dozens of these boards in tandem to create giant slideshow images.

Neon signs are static signs that are give off their effect by a tube filled with an inert gas which reacts with an electrical charge. These signs are not changeable, and are not programmable. They are good for a single message. Mens restroom, or a bar, a place featuring an ATM may have a Neon sign indicating such. These signs are cheap, bright, and one dimensional. They are also expensive in operating costs. Using up to twice as much electricity as an LED sign board.

LED signs contain little diodes, and those clusters of diodes is what creates images, text, scrolling text, moving pictures and much more!

LED Message Board FAQ’s

An LED message board is an electronic display system that consists of several panels or modules that contain varying amounts of LED’s integrated with them. LED’s are light emitting diodes that display colors in the RGB (red, green, and blue) spectrum. These LED message boards mix the wavelengths in such a way as to create all the colors on the visible light spectrum including, purple, yellow, orange, black and white.

Since these display boards are modules that can be fit together, this allows the LED message board to be built to any size you wish. Whether you want a small scrolling LED sign for your shops window, to a large church sign welcoming your congregation back, to a large video wall that can be used at trade shows or giant sporting events. LED message boards are a one stop shop for a variety of marketing needs, and incidentally has the best ROI of ANY form of advertising.

Periodic table of the Elements with key

LED’s are tiny semiconductors that emit a light when an electric current is passed through it. The materials that the semi-conductors are made up of are made up of elements from group 3 and 5 of the periodic table. The three main materials used in the semi-conductors are:

  • InGan – (Indium, Gallium and Nitrogen) produces the blue, green and violet colors. These colors are usually high in brightness due the wavelength.
  • AlGaInP – Aluminum, Gallium, Indium, and Phosphorus – Produces yellow, and orange highlights.
  • AlGaAs – Aluminum, Gallium, Arsenic – Produces reds and infrareds (heat).

LED message boards, as stated earlier are comprised of a few half dozen to several dozen modules, each containing a certain amount of LED (light emitting diodes) lights. Measuring the distance between each led light is called the pitch. More spread out lights are cheaper, but also have the benefit of being cheaper, and seen from further away. Usually signs with 20 mm pitch are good as highway billboards to attract cars from great distances, while lower 10mm pitch is great for high quality trade shows, or intimate school and church signs.

These LED message boards are controlled by easy to use software that interprets the message you want to display on your sign boards, and sends the LED lights the corresponding algorithm to make them light up, display your message, and change their timing accordingly.

LED message boards are a useful marketing tool that can attract potential customers to your location by way of offering deals, prizes, promotions, or other incentives to scoop up foot traffic. It’s an easy, low cost way of conveying your message to a wide variety of individuals, instead of researching who your target audience is, and targeting a campaign specifically for them.

Although target audience research is important, and can be seen as another form of marketing in terms of getting your message across. LED message boards are more like a large fish net however. Sometimes you throw a marketing net, and find new customers you would not have thought to target. An elderly couple who wishes to stay young and healthy may see your Yoga studio sign and give you a call or pay you a visit.

A down on his luck young man can see a church sign and decide to come in and talk. A CEO who has a broken laptop, sees your message board, and tries his luck with your computer repair business. The opportunities to cast a wider net are infinitely more lucrative when it comes to LED message boards.

Although every business is different, and there is no guarantee with any form of marketing campaigns. Having an LED message board is statistically the best form of marketing you can employ for your business in 2020. Some amazing statistics include:

  • 60% of your customers will see your LED message Boards.

While there is no definite answer to this question, as every business is different. Usually one sign will work for a small business like a computer repair shop, yoga studio, or coffee house.
