There are a lot of options available to you in LED signs. Understanding these options and how they impact the cost of the signs can help you make a better buying decision. Sometimes the “cheapest” option will be more costly as your signs age. Service calls and repair bills can exceed your initial “savings” with a lower-priced sign. LED signs are rated to operate for 100,000 hours which is about 12 years. The potential of your investment is only fully realized if your signs are reliable and look great throughout that entire lifetime.
