Getting Cold Feet: Santa Claus Parade 2018

November 19, 2018

It’s was a cold and windy day in Winnipeg, but that never stops the love of families coming out to take in the Santa Claus Parade and all its wonders.

This year in 2018 was a very special event that almost didn’t take place. Funding was low, and the Santa float needed huge repairs, otherwise, the parade would be canceled. Several sponsors stepped up to the ice-cold plate and donated enough to keep Santa’s float and the parade moving forward.

Electra Sign was pleased to answer a unique call from the Parade organizers to drive Manitoba’s only Mobile LED Messaging Truck displaying the names of all sponsors and thanking them for making this happen.

Taking the centre spot in the floats, the crowds watched the electronic screens and made lots of noise to thank these sponsors for their generous support. There are many online posts and pics including...

Turning Your Business Into a Landmark

October 19, 2018

As the name suggests, static identification signs by themselves are, well, static. The fact is a good looking ID sign such as a LED-lit fascia sign or channel letters can be complemented by an EMC sign (electronic message center) and vice versa. On it’s own your static identification sign can only say who you are. It can’t communicate what you have to offer or what is special about your business like an EMC sign can. 

An EMC sign almost immediately becomes a landmark in its community. Many new EMC sign owners testify to being noticed again — or even discovered for the first time. How often do you find yourself commuting to and from work each day oblivious to your surroundings? A static sign will often get your attention but what will really get noticed is an EMC sign in tandem with a beautifully designed static sign. 

 

Passing viewers look forward to reading clever new messages and may even come to rely on your sign for public service announcements, civic event information, personal and holiday greetings, and the current time and temperature. All of which leads to people remembering you, where you are located and in turn leads to more business.
