- 10 Things
Planning on purchasing an LED Sign?. Here
are 10 things to consider before you buy an electronic message
Indoor or Outdoor.
Will you sign be installed indoors or outdoors. If outdoors in
what conditions...driving rain, snow, high low temperatures?
Look for a durable LED sign designed to last, with solid welds,
high voltage protection, and heavy walled aluminum construction
Viewing Distance and Angle.
At what distance will your LED sign be viewed? And at what
angle? This will help you determine the correct
message display character height and minimum pitch required to
produce an image that is crisp and lifelike. Longer distances
require less resolution and shorter distances require more
resolution. If you are traveling 55mph on a freeway and the LED
message sign is 600 feet away at a truck stop, the LED message text
letters must be at least 20 inches tall to be legible. If you are
standing 60 feet away from a LED sign, the message letters need only
be 2 inches tall to be legible.
Resolution is the most important factor affecting the cost of
your LED sign. More resolution means more diodes and more
circuits, which usually means higher cost. How do you
determine the resolution of an LED sign? Pitch is the distance
between one diode and another. The SMALLER the pitch the HIGHER
the resolution. You are probably not a sign expert, but we can
give you the knowledge you need on distance and angle to ensure
your site and LED sign match up correctly

to lease the LED sign and dedicate a portion of your advertising
budget towards the sign. To stay competitive in today's market,

quick headline reminder or is a more lifelike image needed to
grab their attention? You answer maybe determined by your
location, the presence of other signage or the competitive
environment. Quality video capable LED signs are now available
