A Pricing Example

$7.83 is the daily expense if your accountant depreciates a $20,000 Watchfire LED sign using a typical 7-year depreciation. Our signs offer powerful advertising that captures the mobile audience. Can your local radio or newspaper deliver promotional messages this effectively for just dollars a day? (This is just an example; an appropriate sign for your location might be more or less than $7.83/day.)

From Jim and Tina Bricker, Owners of Aqua Systems in Warsaw, Ind.

"When we heard about Watchfire video signs, we thought the cost would be too much for our budget. After seeing the traveling display, the decision to put up a Watchfire LED message center was an easy one. We have been open two months and the message center is our number one advertising tool, beating radio and newspaper."

From Denny Elimon, Director of Facilities at Parkland College in Champaign, Ill.

"The day after we had our new Watchfire electronic sign installed, we had what we call 'Gaper's Block.' Every car pulling into campus was slowing down to read the messages, and that's exactly what we wanted. Our sign had not been updated in the last twenty years, so the appearance of an electronic message center was quite dramatic. For the first time ever, we could advertise all of our events including registration, theater performances, and athletic the entire community."

From Dennis Rathjen, Co-owner of Vogler Ford in Carbondale, Ill.

"We were able to dramatically and immediately reduce our advertising budget while still seeing an increase in sales."
