Across most industries, having boring signage just won’t cut it. That’s why so many businesses, churches, and schools are getting creative with their outdoor marquees. Outdoor LED displays have massive appeal in our digital age. In fact, the LED industry is projected to have a 53% penetration of the global lighting market by 2019. But when it comes to using LED signs for schools, churches, and businesses, there are a lot of misconceptions that continue to sway public opinion. Many folks don’t realize just how effective school LED signs are because they believe these pervasive myths! To set the record straight, we challenge you to determine whether these ideas about outdoor LED signs are fact or fiction.

MYTH: School LED signs can’t be seen during the day
Reality: You might believe that, in bright daylight, your LED sign won’t be spotted by motorists. But consider the fact that many traffic lights, weather alerts, and roadside signs are now being made with LEDs. Since those signs are paramount for driver safety, they cannot be designed in a way that won’t allow those warning messages to be seen! LEDs will work in the same way for your outdoor school signs and business signs. You’ll never have to worry about whether passersby can see your signage.

MYTH: LED signs can get dangerously hot
Reality: LED signs will generate heat, much in the way that a computer does. But that means that the bulbs themselves do not actually emit any heat. Unlike your run-of-the-mill light bulb, most of the electricity generated from your LED sign will produce light, not heat. You don’t have to be afraid that someone will walk by and get burned by your LED sign. It’s a great way to express both a message of safety and make sure passersby stay safe, too.

MYTH: LED signs are way too expensive for my organization
Reality: School LED signs are probably a lot more affordable than you might think. While the cost may vary a bit depending on needs, you need to consider that having an LED sign for your school or business is an investment in your students or customers, as well as your community in general. It’s an excellent way to advertise your organization’s offerings, which is often a lot more effective than more traditional marketing methods. Even if your budget is limited, you’ll be able to find a high-quality LED sign that will benefit you. It’s not just an expenditure; you’re actually putting value back into your school, church, or business.
