Tarrant County updates their Parking Garage signs!

Tarrant County, located in North Texas, has recently updated their parking garage signage. Their previous signage allowed only pricing, dates and hours to be displayed on the signs, seriously limiting the signage message.  As LED or digital signage is becoming more and more popular and economical, Tarrant County decided now was the time to invest in signage that would allow the county to not only display parking prices, but also allow for other messages and reminders to the community.  For example, they can now remind drivers to put on their seat belts, display current time and temperature data, inform drivers of traffic conditions in the vicinty, notify when the garage is full, warn drivers of weather hazards or street closings, share upcoming events such as festivals, shows, etc in the area.  The sign is even on a movable cart so that the County can decide if another location would be better on any given day!  The possibilities are endless with digital signage!  Don't limit yourself with a static sign GO digital and see all of the things you can share with your audience!

Businesses See Success with the Use of LED Signs!

All businesses, no matter what type, are seeing a huge jump in foot traffic when they use a LED, also known as a digital sign! There is something appealing about a digital sign that a plain static sign just cant achieve.  The brightness of a LED sign in conjunction with their ability to scroll the letters in a variety of patterns and graphics, instantly draws the attention of anyone nearby.  If you have a business and want to increase your sales, a digital sign is by far the most efficient way to go. Other forms of marketing typically require constant payments every week or at least on a monthly basis. A digital sign is a one time cost that quickly pays for itself.  Several businesses even rent out space on their digital sign to help pay for the sign!  Some businesses have sold small plaques to individuals or other nearby establishments as a way to pay for their sign!  Genius!  What other form of advertising can you actually make money back on while increasing your sales too??? Digital signs are so effective that the US Government is installing them on their bases, school districts all over the United States are placing them in front of their campuses and Municipalities are installing them at Libraries, Civic Centers and Recreation Centers.  Give a LED sign a try and see for yourself!

Two High Schools in Grand Prairie, Tx update Their Digital Marquees

Both Grand Prairie High and South Grand Prairie High have recently updated their outdoor Digital Marquees. With technology changing at such a fast pace, the school district knew they could get a lot more value from a digital sign by upgrading their old signs. The newer, full color signs have a tighter pitch meaning the picture quality will be better because each pixel cluster is closer together. The older signs were a 23mm pitch and the new signs boast a tighter 16mm pitch.  Can you seen the difference in the photos below? The colors and brightness of newer digital signs are also more vibrant than before. Both high schools also chose to go bigger allowing their messages to be read from a farther distance away. If you are considering buying a digital sign for the first time or are wanting to upgrade your old model, give us a call for a free consultation and quote!

Students, Staff and Visitors Benefit from Digital LED Sign Upgrade at Local Community College!

 TCC Installed New LED Signs at all Four Campuses to Benefit the Students and Local Community 


TCC began experimenting with Outdoor Digital Signage in 2009 at the NW Campus where they upgraded from an old changeable letter sign to a bright, highly readable LED Sign.  Dr. Vesta Martinez, Director of Student Development Services at TCC Northwest Campus “fondly” remembers their old sign and said the new sign is a “huge step up from the old sign when we had to chip off the ice to change the sign” when classes were cancelled. Now, they simple have to upload “Classes Canceled Due to Inclement Weather”… and done!

Perhaps the best illustration of the Electronic Signs’ effectiveness can be seen when something goes wrong. When words are spelled wrong or the signs are down for maintenance, they get bombarded with calls showing that signs are effectively getting information out, and people are noticing. In fact, the first sign was working so well that not only did TCC Northwest put in a second double sided LED Sign at the NW Campus but they have installed additional signs at all of their other campuses.

Tips on buying an LED Sign!

It can be tempting to search the internet for the "cheapest" price on an outdoor or indoor LED sign.  Although this tactic is fine for many frequently searched products, a LED or digital Sign DOES NOT apply here! When you search the web and think you found a great deal, what you really bought is a huge headache!  Many online digital signage companies are selling junk.  Digital signage is not something you want to risk your money with by going the cheapest route.  When someone buys a cheap sign off the internet, what they are getting in return is cheap parts like power supplies, bulbs, controllers, etc. They then find themselves in just a few months with a sign that either doesn't work at all or is unreadable due to failing parts. A wise buyer will take the time to research the products, sevices and previous clients of a digital sign company. Take some practical advise here. Spend a little bit more and get a quality sign (typically made in the USA) with good technical service and expertise. You will save a lot of grief, time and even money in the long run!
