LED lighting revolutionized the way signs are built. Much smaller and easier to work with compared to neon tubes and bulbs, LEDs have allowed sign makers to make signs thinner and incorporate more complex designs. Light emitting diodes (LED) are far more durable compared to traditional lighting options. In this post, we take a look at some of the biggest benefits of custom LED signs for businesses in Jacksonville.
Greater variety in LED signs’ design
With three primary colors (red, green and blue) included into a single LED, which is several times smaller than a dime, there is a lot more freedom in design because signage is no longer confined to just one color. Sign curves can also be much tighter because LEDs can be easily hidden and incorporated into flexible sign design.
Brightness and color
LEDs are the brightest sign illumination option, so much so that they can be used in broad daylight and you will still see them lit up. Even more impressive, one LED can recreate the full color spectrum, which means your sign can visually make a strong branding impression. In fact, business owners have started to rotate the color of their sign daily.
Extremely energy efficient
You have probably heard LED signs are much more energy efficient than traditional lighting options – and they are! LED signs are so cost-effective to use that businesses even leave them on during the day. LEDs are attractive for their longer lifespan and low maintenance costs.

Moving images and Animation
Outdoor LED signs enable businesses to create affordable and easy-to-install digital signage that can display moving images. Tickers, animated imagery and even full video displays are possible due to LEDs. Best of all, the interface that drives them is intuitively designed and allows business owners change the message as needed.
Three basic types of sign lighting configurations
The three basic sign lighting setups are:
- Front-lit – The front fascia of the sign is illuminated
- Backlit – Light shines out of the back and reflects off the mounting surface
- Spotlights – Lighting is separate from the sign and shines onto the sign
Of course, these are not mutually exclusive. Signs can incorporate one, two or all three of these lighting configurations. In fact, front and backlit signs are used commonly to achieve a sophisticated look.
