Light It Up! The Benefits of Lighted Signs For Your Business.

Lighted signs are colourful and eye-catching. When done properly, signage can bring in new customers and elevate the look and perception of your business. There are many different kinds of exterior lighting, ranging from the classic neon signs, backlit signs, halo backlit signs, and LED screens with a variety of ways to customize your advertising. The best way to decide what type of sign, what information, and what colour scheme to use is to consult with a commercial electrician company once you have an idea of how you want your business front to look. If you’re interested in advertising all day and night, consider the benefits of lighted signs.

Lighted Signs: How They Improve Your Business

Always Visible. What puts lighted signs above other types of signage is how eye-catching it is at all times. This is especially helpful during the Calgary winters when it becomes dark early in the day. With good exterior lighting, your clients can still easily identify your business name and hours and passers-by are much more likely to look at your business when it’s bright and distinctive.

Clearly Shows What Your Business Is. Signage is incredibly important for letting your customers know about the business; the name, the product, and the general atmosphere. Using proper signage will showcase the name of the business, but it can also give a colour association and utilize other words and images that let the customer know what product or service you offer. Signs can also easily and clearly show your hours of operation, which many customers appreciate. Having a lighted sign and effective exterior lighting will direct their eye to all of this important information as well as to any product that is on display.

Customizable. Having a customized sign is a part of showing what your business is and does. Many stores have an “open” sign for their hours, but having signs that all fit the same aesthetic and that are made to represent your product can give the impression that the business is put together and highly professional. You can customize your signs by adding the company logo, choosing the lighting colours, adding a slogan, or making exterior lighting choices; your sign isn’t the only thing that can be lit up. If you want to light your storefront to make it more welcoming or so the front window is more visible, you can discuss these features with your lighting contractor.

Requires Little Maintenance. LED lighting has an extremely long life span so even if your sign is lit up 24 hours a day, you won’t have to worry about replacing your lights for approximately 10 years. LED lights are also highly weather resistant and will stay vibrant for much longer than signs that will become sun faded and damaged by weather. Once an LED sign is installed, it will require little to no maintenance for electrical or aesthetic purposes unless it undergoes sudden impact.

“​Hey Nigel, just thought I would let you know our electricity averaged around $630/month before the upgrade, compared with the September bill that we just got of only $370 – much better savings than we thought. The condo board members are extremely pleased!”​
