The Benefits of Electronic Message Center Signs (or EMC Signs for Short)

Is your business or organization a happening kind of place where things are always changing? Maybe you’ve got great new promotions every week or you host a variety of events. If that’s the case, then constantly changing your signage can be a hassle. If that’s the case then EMC signs may be right for your business. The benefits of electronic message center signs include low cost and low maintenance with all day everyday advertising that can help bring in enough business to pay for itself.

EMC stands for Electronic Message Center. These electronic and video message boards come in just about any size you can think of and they can be programmed remotely to display a wide array of messages and images.  That’s right – no more changing out letters by hand!

EMC Display Signs are a Great Investment

While the initial cost of an EMC display is going to be higher than that of a static sign due to the electronic components, EMCs are a great investment for any business that wishes to regularly change it’s messaging, while grabbing peoples attention.

Because these signs can incorporate movement, animation and video, and use high quality LED lights, they can more easily capture the attention of passersby. Even if you choose not to program movement into the sign, your audience will grow accustomed to the fact that you change your messaging and will be more likely to notice your sign on a regular basis.

EMC displays can be erected in most places where traditional signage can be displayed, including a business’ existing pylon.

24/7 Advertising for Your Business

Vision EMC sign

When it comes to putting your company brand in front of an audience, you’ve got a lot of options. An EMC display sign is a great option for advertising events and promotions round the clock. The LED lighting is easily visible during both daytime and nighttime hours.

It is also important to think about how your target audience demographics may be changing. Today people are spending more and more time in front of screens, whether they are sitting at a computer or using their smartphone. Static signs may not be doing enough to capture the attention of some demographics. An EMC display is often more effective for getting the attention of certain audiences than static signage would be.

Less Maintenance Than You Think!

One reason why some business owners choose not to go with EMC displays is that they think this type of signage will be high maintenance. Not so! The high quality LED displays used by About Signs are made to last. Extremely environmentally friendly and energy efficient, LEDs can last ten years or more, so there is no worry about having to constantly change bulbs.

Even changing the messaging on these signs is simpler than with other forms of signage. EMC displays can be changed remotely – so as long as you have access to a computer, you’ll be able to change the message!

If you are looking for high-quality signage that can be changed regularly and will capture the attention of your audience, then an EMC display may be just the thing you are looking for.
