Visibility is a key success factor for any commercial sign, and placement is critical. You don’t your sign behind a shrub or even a coat rack. But there’s only so much placement can do, and illumination is often what will really make your sign stand out in a crowded visual field and achieve visibility from a distance. There are several types of lighted commercial signs, including backlighting, illumination provided by a raceway or wireway, LED lighting boards or screens and more.
LEDs have quickly become the most popular form of lighted commercial sign. Neon signs look great at first but they fade over time as the neon gas slowly escapes the light tube. This is not an issue with LED signs which also shine brighter than any other type of commercial sign. LED bulbs also last longer than neon or fluorescent tubes, not to mention up to 25 times longer than incandescent bulbs. LED signs are simply much more efficient than other lighted commercial signs because LED bulbs convert more of their energy into light rather than heat.
