There are many churches that now have large LED signs by the edge of their property at the roadway. The signs can be changed to scroll different words across the screen so that people passing by can see what is going on at the church in the near future. When choosing a sign to have installed at your church, there are many factors to take into consideration. Use the following guide to learn how to choose the right sign for your church:
Consider How Large You Want the Sign to Be
You need to decide how large you want the sign to be before you purchase it. You want it to be large enough for people to be able to easily read the words that scroll across it, but not so large that it serves as an eyesore or a distraction for drivers.
Consider If You Want the Sign to be Colored
When choosing a large sign, you can choose for it to simply display the letters in black and white or have the option to be able to add things in color, as well. The lights that have colors in them are often more expensive because there are so many more elements to them than the traditional signs.
Consider the Operation of the Signs
There are now some signs that can be operated remotely. You can simply type into a program what you want to scroll across the screen and the sign will do it automatically. Some of the less expensive signs require you to type information directly into a keypad that is attached to the sign. This can be a bit of a hassle if you need to change something that the sign says immediately, such as during a storm when service may be delayed.
Consider the Cost of Installation of the Sign
When you purchase a large LED sign, you need to make sure that it is installed properly. Get an estimate for the installation costs before buying the sign to make sure that the church can afford not only the purchase of the sign but also the installation of it.
You will need to have the sign maintained regularly. Bulbs may need to be replaced or cleaned from time to time and the system may need to be updated every now and again to ensure that it can work as well as it possibly can at all times. Have a maintenance technician come out to look at the sign on a regular basis to make sure that is nothing wrong with it that needs to be addressed.
