Do you want appealing and high visibility building signage for your business? You must consider getting custom LED signs! There are plenty of ways to create a nice-looking design with these light-up signs. Plus, given its use of LED lights, these signs are sure to capture anyone’s attention in all conditions during any time of day. LED signs are great for hanging up in your storefront window display, outside your building, or give personality to your interior space. Here’s what you should know about these signs and why they’re great for attracting attention.
Difference Between LED and Neon Signs
When one thinks of light-up signs, neon signs are often the first to come to mind. Neon signs are a classic commercial sign choice. With neon signs, delicate glass tubes are filled with neon gas, which emits it’s signature glow when an electric current runs through it. In comparison, LED signs use a string of light-emitting diodes to replicate a similar look to classic neon signs while using more energy-efficient LED lights. LED lights need significantly less voltage to power compared to a neon sign, which affects how much the business needs to pay to run the sign. As a result, an LED sign is often a better financial investment when considering the size of the sign and how often the business will keep it illuminated.
When designing LED signs, it’s important to place the legibility of the message and graphics before the brightness of the sign. The audience (and your potential new customers) may have a tough time discerning the words if the display is too bright and strains their eyes. To create a legible design, consider how your audience will view the sign from it’s intended distance. Consider a reasonable range others will be seeing the sign; instead of having the message being read from down the street, make the sign clear for viewing for one passing by the storefront. From there, choose the best font size(s) to compose your message and graphic design of the lights.
Who Benefits from LED Signs?
The lit display of LED signs offers plenty of curb appeal to businesses. All businesses could benefit from a simple sign indicating they are open, but it may be especially useful for businesses that operate into the evening hours, like restaurants and hotels. Incorporate LED lights into your business’s blade sign for more pizazz and visibility. LED-lit signs often look thinner and emit a colder looking light than a warm neon glow. While the effect is similar, LED lights are better suited for establishments with a more modern design concept.
