Pros And Cons Of LED Signs

Learn about LED signs, what they are, what purposes they’re good for, what purposes they’re not so good for, and discover the pros and cons of these signs.

What Are LED Signs?

Light-emitting diodes, or LEDs, are probably the overall best light source there is for illuminating signage. You can use them to identify your business, to brand an interior or exterior space, and to promote or advertise products and services. LEDs can be used in channel letter signs, cabinet signs, and many other lighted signs. LED boards display dozens, even hundreds, of individual LEDs which can light up in sequences to display text, graphics, and even generate the appearance of movement.

Pro: Visibility

LED signs have greater visibility than non-illuminated signs. Outdoors, they can be seen from great distances. A large, bright LED sign offers maximum visibility. Furthermore, while other signs are harder to see at night and in inclement weather, LED signs can actually become even more noticeable. They’re easy to see at night and in the rain, snow, and fog.

Con: Cost

LED signs require significant investment. In comparison to common business expenses, LED signs aren’t particularly expensive. But in comparison to most other types of signage, they are. That’s why LED signs are typically used to identify businesses or for other important matters. People generally don’t use LED signs to display wayfinding information, for example.

Pro: They Get Noticed

LED signs outcompete other visual stimuli, indoors and outdoors. This is especially true if you program an LED board with a sequence that mimics movement. The human eye is attracted to movement, so such signs get noticed.

Con: Maintenance And repair

LED signs require more maintenance and repairs than other signs. This means that LED signs come with recurring costs over the years.

Pro: Maintenance And repair

Paying for maintenance and repair might seem like an extra cost, but regular maintenance means you don’t have to buy a new sign. LED sign maintenance and repair can actually save you money in the long run.
