Benefits of Illuminated Signage & Lighting

Signs are vital for identifying places, providing direction, and delivering key information to consumers. There are many types and methods of producing and displaying stand-out signage and one of the most innovative and contemporary approaches is illumination.

Illuminated signs are effective for any industry and are required for places such as storefronts, shopping centers, and restaurants; large venues and buildings such as hospitals, universities, corporate campuses, sports complexes, monuments, and more.

Here are 4 reasons why illuminating your signage can provide value to your business.

Increased Visibility

Signage is also the first thing we notice about a storefront, restaurant, or just about any facility, whether doing business there or not. A lighted sign provides immediate visibility, crucial in busy locations, at night, and during inclement weather.

Illumination provides quick delivery of the sign’s message day or night, whether it be informational, directional, or for advertising.

While they are essential in outdoor applications for visibility at night and during inclement weather, they are also advantageous indoors to provide focused branding, highlighting spaces, for identifying crucial safety and emergency information, wayfinding in crowded spaces, display, advertising, and more.

Businesses must distinguish themselves from their competition and an illuminated sign is an instrumental way to differentiate one brand from another.

Lighted signs convey professionalism and sophistication and give consumers confidence that the business cares about its appearance and position in the market. Additionally, a brightly lit sign is a form of passive advertisement and gives business owners the opportunity to fully amplify and maximize brand promotion.

Energy Efficient for Cost Savings

LED Lightbox Illuminated SignageWhen it comes to signing illumination, using LED lighting is the most resourceful way to go. LED bulbs require much less wattage and have a significantly longer lifespan than fluorescent, and traditional incandescent bulbs. Modules using less wattage equated to reduced electricity costs, and because LED bulbs put off less heat, the lighted sign won’t add costs to indoor cooling needs.
