It’s Not All Neon — The Use of LED Lighted Signs

For decades the glowing lights of neon flooded the city streets of destination spots such as New York, Las Vegas, and even closer to home in downtown Atlanta.  These cities could be seen from miles away by the glowing warmth of neon that marked the location of movie, concert, restaurant, and hotel destinations.

However, in recent years the glow of neon has been replaced by the cost effectiveness of LED lights and regulation.

LED lighting easily illuminates channel letters, boxed displays, monument signs, and many other signage choices which make it versatile in use.   Studies show an LED sign can improve sales by at least 15% and up to 150% when used to promote products and specials.  If you’ve ever driven past a strip mall at night, then you’re probably familiar with the effectiveness of channel letter signs.   Lighting your signage is a good way to attract new potential customers who may only drive past your business after-hours or need to find you when the sun goes down.

Here are 5 reasons to consider adding lighting to your company’s signage:

  • Eye-Catching Brightness – LEDs produces a brilliant, yet clear light that is easy to read both close up and from a distance.  It can be seen in the night and is even intense enough to see when the sun’s shining. This means that no matter what time of day, and regardless of whether your customers are walking or driving past, they can get a clear impression of your sign’s message or logo.
  • Better Appearance – If you’ve ever owned or seen a neon or fluorescent sign, you know it can seem like a constant battle keeping the sign fully lit and with consistent brightness.  LEDs eliminate much of this problem, because their long life and efficient technology keeps them illuminated far longer and more uniform than traditional lights.

  • Environmentally Friendly– Typical LED signs use only around 10 watts of power, which is around 80% less energy than neon systems. This lower power requirement results in less strain on the environment, helps you adhere to stricter energy standards, and makes a significant reduction in your lighting costs.  LEDs also put off much less heat than other bulbs, so if your sign is indoors, you don’t have to worry about it warming up your rooms and driving up the air conditioning bill.
  • Low Maintenance – Considering their long lifespans, even brightness, and efficiency, it’s easy to understand why LED signs have far fewer maintenance demands than other systems. They work well in outdoor applications and don’t need significant protection from the elements (unlike fluorescent and incandescent bulbs).  Ultimately, their simplicity and ruggedness make them a breeze to install and a headache free investment.
  • Programmable LED Signs – With LEDs you can use virtually any combination of lights and create all types of movement, digital flashes, color changes, and animations. LEDs are composed of multiple, separate lights (not long glass tubes) and can be programmed to flash, fade, or light up independently. This flexibility makes it possible to show off your business’ distinctive logo or to display any other type of attention-grabbing image.

If you’re looking for a sign to stand out from the crowd and get noticed — all while saving you energy and maintenance — there’s nothing that can top LED.
