LED Signs: What Are The Options?
LED signs are everywhere at the moment, and for good reason. The illumination of an LED sign stands out against more traditional signage and lets businesses make a real impact and grab the attention of passers by. While they really come into their own at night, LED signs can give you a competitive edge at any time of day, indoors and outdoors.
If you’re considering investing in LED signage for your business, you have quite a few options available. Thanks to developments in technology LED signs come in a number of different formats, from static lights to scrolling displays and moving messages.
The right type of LED sign will depend on its purpose and whether it’s going to be located indoors or outdoors. Here are a few of the options available to you to help you make the best decision for your business:
Indoor or outdoor signs
LED signs can be used both indoors and outdoors but because outdoor LED signs need to compete with sunlight they generally use brighter components than indoor signs. Outdoor signs also need to be weatherproof whereas indoor signs don’t.
Full colour LED displays
A full colour LED display can display video and photographic images in trillions of different colours. Full colour LED signs let you use illuminated images to convey your message and they can be a great way to grab attention and really make your business stand out.
Because of the sophistication of the technology, these types of LED signs are more expensive than simpler types but they can be a worthwhile investment.
Grayscale LED displays
Similar to full colour LED displays, grayscale signs can display images and photographs but in a single colour rather than full colour. The most common colours used are red and amber. Grayscale LED displays give you the flexibility to display images at a much lower cost than full colour displays.
Monochrome LED signs
These are the simple signs that you most commonly see on roadsides and shopping centres that display a text message in red or amber. Not all businesses will benefit from using images and video to sell their products or services and often a simple yet compelling message will do the job effectively, at a very affordable price.
The right type of sign will be the one that helps you promote your message effectively, and that doesn’t break the bank. For more information about LED signs, speak to one of our experienced LED sign makers today!
