“I'm the owner of an established restaurant here in Winnipeg. I already have attractive signage that draws in business from the area so I’m not quite ready to update my current branding. Though the fluorescent lighting on my existing signs is outdated, and this creates various issues.
My outdated signage requires frequent maintenance, which can become exceedingly expensive. Another issue I have is that my fluorescent lighting is not energy efficient, nor is it environmentally friendly since I must frequently dispose of my used fluorescent lamps when I replace them. What can I do about this?”
This is a common dilemma that many kinds of businesses face. Nowadays more and more people are asking this type of question as they want to save on maintenance and electrical costs and because they want to be more responsible, overall. Though it may not seem that way, the solution to this problem is actually very simple --and no, you don’t need to replace your sign altogether. You can convert your old signs’ outdated lighting system to LED's, which isn’t as costly as you would assume. Not to mention that having a new LED lighting system is a great investment with many additional benefits. Here are a few:
They are much brighter...
New LED systems are bright, offering the appearance of a new sign without the added cost. They make existing logos and graphics more vivid and eye-catching, which attracts more attention and thus, creating more potential customers.
They use less energy...
It’s common knowledge that LED's preserve energy better than traditional fluorescent and incandescent lighting. But how much more effective is it, really? LED’s can be up to 90% more efficient to run compared to traditional lighting. Over time, this will a save you lot of money.
They will need less servicing...
LED lights can last up to 100,000 hours. Compare that to traditional fluorescent lighting which typically only lasts from 7,000 to 15,000 hours and you’ll notice a major difference. A sign service crew of two men and a truck typically costs $150 per hour, with LEDs you’ll have to pay for their expensive services significantly less often.

LED signs, churches and places of worship.
LED signs are an extremely cost-effective form of communication. A new LED sign in conjunction with your new or existing signs can cost less than 15 cents per thousand exposures while reaching the very people who are geographically close enough to act on your message immediately. How important is it for you to keep your congregation informed and growing? With an attention-grabbing LED message center, your church can reach out with inspiration and excitement to your flock as well as the surrounding community. LED displays provide energy-efficient communications 24/7, using light, color, and motion to bring greater visibility to your congregation’s programs. With the addition of an LED sign, your church can become your community’s beacon of light.
