Proud Supporter: Walk To Fight Arthritis

June 5, 2017

Electra Sign was pleased to show our support for The Arthritis Society's signature fundraising event, the 2017 Walk to Fight Arthritis. It was great a event with huge turn out for a family-fun-filled day for all who participated in the 1km or 5km walks all-age event! The Walk took place in over 30 communities from coast-to-coast on Sunday, June 4, and in Quebec on June 3, 2017.

Electra Sign brought it's promotions vehicle equipped with full color electronic message boards to light things up while there and it literally helped keep everthing lit up due to a sudden power outage. The back-up generator in our truck came in unexpentantly handy for the event.

Special thanks to all the volunteers and sponsors involved in the event and to the Arthritis Society for putting on such a fun and meaningful event.

Customer Profile: Gospel Mission Church

June 1, 2017

On April 12th, 2015, the shovels hit the ground on new real estate in Winkler, Manitoba. This sod turning event marked the first stages in moving the Gospel Mission Church from its Pembina Ave. location after 11 years to 15th Street. From the first service in a shared building in April 2005 with Emmanuel Mennonite Church, to holding their first service in their new building on April 24th, 2016 – the changes were welcomed.

Driving onto the gravel parking lot to meet for the first time, Electra Sign provided a detailed presentation using the EMC Demo Truck to visualize the technologies available in an electronic messaging centre(EMC). How these technologies would enhance the communications of the Church and the surrounding communities. With more than 250 members and service attendance of over 800 regularly, Gospel Mission Church has become a recognized gathering with members(partners) growing constantly. 

Capturing the unique beauty of the Church, Electra Sign’s team custom designed, manufactured and installed a 14-foot-high, double-sided 12mm electronic messaging centre. Boasting full colour high resolution imagery and animation, this structure compliments the building and its shape.

 

When you find yourself in Winkler, drop in and say hello. Also visit them online and have a look at the construction development, details and pictures.

BENEFITS OF LED SIGNS: Info-Graphic

May 29, 2017

An LED sign is a smart advertising investment for any organization – a business, a church, a school or a municipality. Other forms of advertising simply can’t come close in scope, efficiency or value.

LED signs are the most effective, least expensive form of advertising for small businesses according to the Small Business Administration (SBA). An LED sign gives you the ability to target a large, critical audience of potential customers already at your front door for far less than a traditional advertising campaign would cost.

Advertising is traditionally measured in CPM, or cost per thousand impressions. In a typical town, an LED sign might cost as little as 74 cents per 1,000 impressions — compared to over 22 dollars for television and 13 dollars for radio. Many organizations find they can reduce their advertising budgets for other mediums because their LED sign is so effective.
