5 Key Benefits of LED Lighting for the Sign Industry

Whether you need a sign to highlight the fact that your store is open for business, or you’re a company offering signs to local businesses, the use of LED lighting could dramatically change your business performance.

Companies have been turning to neon signs for years to announce their presence to customers, to welcome them to town, and even to highlight the uniqueness of their business. While neon was the go-to of choice, there is an alternative solution that offers vibrant lighting, a multitude of colors, and costs much less to operate.

If your business is ready to make an impression and stand out from the sea of neon glows, LED lights are your best option.

With LED lighting, you gain a number of benefits, from cost savings to attraction.

So, before investing in traditional neon lights, why not consider the flexibility of LED instead?

5 Benefits of LED Lighting for the Sign Industry and Local Business Owners

1. High-Quality Brightness and Brilliant Color
Before LED light, there was neon lighting. Neon glowed brightly in a variety of colors but was only achieved through other gasses or rarefied neon. Some cities have started to ban the use of neon lights, and there are codes in some areas against them in storefronts.
When compared to the old neon lights, LED neon flex products are exceptionally brilliant in color and brightness. They can even be seen in full daylight, while neon would blend with the sun.

 
2. Energy-Efficient Lighting
The sign industry has long been guilty of consuming too much energy just to create a sign for the public. However, LED lights require less energy to create a brighter image. Therefore, companies don’t have to sacrifice a bright light to save. Also, LEDs generate very little heat compared to other sign lights, so they can keep the attention of the public without making the interior of a business too warm. Per Energy Saver, LEDs use 75 percent less energy.

 
3. LED Lit Signs Last Longer
Replacing signs is time-consuming and costly. Therefore, no business wants to continually hire someone to climb a ladder or custom-make a lighted sign.
LEDs have a longer lifespan compared to neon and fluorescent lighting. In fact, they last 25 times longer than incandescent lights and offer thousands of more hours of display time over neon. LEDs also do not risk leakage of gasses, which means the lights don’t go dim like neon lights can.

 
4. Light Weight Designs
Neon signs are thick and hefty. They require extra space for the glass tubes to hold the neon gas, and they are bulky. LED signs do not have tubes and offer a thinner size. Therefore, owners can enjoy signs that are bright and bold, but easy to lift on and off their display mounts.

 
5. Versatility for Brands
LEDs offer animation, color changes, fading and flashing features, and moving messages, while neon can only provide flashing lights. This allows for maximum versatility while on display.

    It’s interesting that LED signs can be so useful for businesses! It makes sense that they would give off a very clear amount of light, making them more visible. The fact that they are more energy-efficient would save them money, too!
