Electronic Message Centre Signs

Electronic message centre signs feature a display screen used to promote specific things, like sales or events. By featuring LED lights that present changeable messages these signs offer a level of customization that traditional static signs simply can’t match. Electronic message centre signs are most often positioned in front of a building because they are so useful for informing people about why they should enter.

What is an electronic message centre sign?

Electronic message centre signs are a modern take on the traditional reader boards that businesses have used for more than a century. Whereas the old model would require an employee to grab a box of letters then slide them into the board, an electronic message centre sign is updated remotely, using software. This not only makes electronic message centre signs extremely versatile, it also makes them remarkably convenient.

Other names for electronic message centre signs include:

  • Electronic Message Boards
  • Digital Billboards
  • LED information signs
  • LED displays
  • LED Reader or Reader Boards
  • Scrolling Message Boards

Types of electronic message centre signs

Mostly all electronic message centre signs offer the same core benefits: LED lights that can be changed remotely at a moment’s notice. The difference among this type of outdoor sign essentially boils down to where and how the screen is displayed.

Pylon electronic message boards

Pylon signs stand independent of a building. Usually, they are placed out by a sidewalk or road, where pedestrians and motorists can see them from a distance. Screens displaying changeable LED letters can be included as part of a pylon sign, so passers by don’t just see your company name and logo, they also see your latest offer or next big event. Whatever you choose to put on the screen, a pylon sign with an LED screen will help broadcast your message in a highly visible, highly effective way.

Storefront electronic message boards

If you don’t have the space to add a pylon sign with a screen for LED letters, you can instead opt to incorporate an electronic message centre sign into your storefront. These storefront signs are usually placed in a window or above an entrance way, where people passing by or entering the store can easily read your messages.

The benefits of Electronic message centre signs

Electronic message centre signs can augment the effectiveness of any marketing campaign by delivering a clear message to potential customers or clients. But beyond the obvious benefit of being able to display different messages, electronic message centre signs deliver several secondary benefits that make them truly invaluable marketing tools.

The first benefit is speed. Not only can content be changed, it can be changed in mere seconds. That means if you’ve been using the sign to promote an event, you can display a new message the moment that event ends.

You can also change the LED letters remotely, so there’s no need to fumble with those notoriously annoying reader board letters or bring out the ladder to reach elevated signs. Being able to change the LED letters remotely is particularly convenient during inclement Canadian winters.

Electronic message centre signs are also affordable and easy to maintain. The LED lights About Signs uses are exceptionally efficient, letting you share your messages for years before they need to be replaced.

The final benefit, which goes beyond flexibility and convenience, is that the LED letters on the screen are fully visible at night, meaning the only time your sign isn’t visible is when you choose to turn it off.

Who uses electronic message centre signs?

Electronic message centre signs can be used by all kinds of organizations and companies. Schools, churches, community centres, stores, charities, restaurants and taverns are all common examples of where these signs are successfully deployed.

Whether you want to schedule parent-teacher interviews, announce a flash sale or showcase tonight’s dinner specials, an electronic message centre sign is a terrific tool for getting your message out there.
