Outdoor Electronic Message Boards are being used by everyone from churches to schools, car dealerships, restaurants, hotels, retailers, gas stations, government buildings, malls, dental offices and more! The options are endless but here are the top 7 reasons to upgrade.
Ease Of Use
You know this one well, changeable letter signs are a hassle to update. You have to grab a ladder or an extension pole, and even if the sign is low to the ground, you waste a lot of time sorting through to find the right letter. If it’s rainy, cold, hot, or humid you or your team will be less than eager to complete the update. This is why most businesses display the same message daily, or even up to a full week. This option is quite limited, wastes time, and manpower, where it could be utilized elsewhere.
Upgrade to outdoor electronic message boards and sign updates become a breeze! Choose from an easy to use keyboard QWERTY remote that any employee can learn and use to update the sign while onsite. Update your sign from the comfort of your office, no matter the weather, or time. Or upgrade to our software-controlled system for remote update capacity and the ability to schedule your messages by the time of the day, the day of the week, or any other scheduled criteria. It’s an unlimited option.
Finally, you can post the daily update, schedule reminders, quotes, or scriptures you’ve been wanting to post—but that’s not all! If you want you can display the same message, discount or pricing all day long or you can scroll through more than one message. If your sign is large enough you can write on a single or double line. Maybe an inspirational quote and your car repair shop’s oil change discount. Or post daily reminders for your staff, students, and guests.
Unlike your changeable letter sign, you aren’t limited to how much text you can display, so you can post the longer quotes and messages you weren’t able to in the past. You must be mindful of how much text the average person can read while driving or walking by, but you will be able to share more than before.
Now more than ever in the times of Covid-19 it’s imperative to get your safety message across. Show people that you are a mask required zone, or that you provide free hand sanitizer. You can make people feel safe during uncertain times!
Your current sign is limited to standard sign sizes, but outdoor electronic message boards are custom designed just for you. It will need to be rectangular, but it can be small, medium, or over-sized. Smaller signs are perfect for gas station windows and hard to reach areas closer to the ceilings, but your outdoor signs can be larger, perfect to grab attention off the streets, or highways. Mount your outdoor LED signs on elevated poles, secure them high on your building exterior, or layer them between your LED logo sign and interactive displays.
In addition to ensuring your sign is the perfect size, it will be designed to operate in your local climate, for the viewing resolution you require, and with a variety of other customer-specific factors. Your sign color and tint will be expertly adjusted upon installation to ensure optimal viewing. The base and head can be customized. Fully customizable monument signs can be found on our OMEGA series page.
Your current sign may be back-lit to improve viewing when the sun goes down, but the lettering is basic and doesn’t stand out well. By upgrading to outdoor electronic message boards, you can choose from single, tri, or full color lettering. Ensure your graphics pop by adjusting the font size and choosing from 38 different fonts. Further brand and customize your sign with over 30 special effects and 300 stored images and animations. Or add in completely custom graphics, videos, texts and much more! We have an in-house graphics design team that will even mock up your Outdoor Electronic Message Boards for you, so you can see how it will look, in real time, for your business.
Even with back-lighting, most can only read standard signs from about a block away but with the vibrant LED display, even our smallest signs are visible from at least 200 feet away—more depending on the size of the sign and font. For example, many gas stations, hotels, and restaurants strategically place large outdoor electronic message boards so that they can easily be viewed from the freeway.
In addition to distance, LED displays are clear and easy to read when the sun is shining bright and when the sun goes down. The nighttime visibility between LED and standard signs is beyond compare.
In fact one of our largest displays is the NASA LED countdown clock, which is 26 feet wide by 7 feet high and can be seen from up to a kilometer (0.62 miles) away!
Yes, your new sign requires energy, but it’s 30 percent less expensive to operate than your current fluorescent or incandescent sign.
