What is a lighted sign?

A lighted sign is an image that has been professionally printed on a plastic panel, and mounted against strong lights that can be seen for a miles around, provided the sign is high enough.

LED Signs can be changed to show images and messages as the owner sees fit – whether you want the community to know that there is a change in the times of worship for your church, or if you want to remind people that grapefruit is only .99 cents per pound for the next week, you can change the look and messages of LED signs as you please. Lighted signs are printed on plastic panels, and the whole panel would have to be changed for the message to change.

What is the benefit of putting the two together?

With combination LED and Lighted signs, you will be able to maintain one consistent message (perhaps a mission statement), while being able to show people the variety of ways that you will hold true to this message (like with special events).

How do I know which sign is right for me?

Again, your local sign company will step in to save the day! Through a consultation and working closely with you, you will have the sign that best suits your business’s needs.
