While restrictions on brightness and message hold times differ, many municipalities welcome LED signs. This means it’s easier than ever to acquire an LED sign, and use it as your main source of advertising. No more manually changing letters in all kinds of weather conditions, standing on a ladder or operating a long, unwieldy pole, or worrying about dropped letters hitting cars (or employees). Your messages can be scheduled months in advance, or updated within minutes without even stepping outside. With an on-premise digital sign you can update messages as frequently as you want to reflect changes in the market, your inventory or even the weather.

Using a digital sign to promote your business isn’t just easier, but it is also more effective. LED displays are a turn-key advertising tool that you control, while saving thousands of man hours annually. LED signs engage with individuals, are more dynamic and easier to read, can display many messages daily, and allow businesses to focus on promotions.
