Posted by Electro-Matic on Jun 9, 2021 3:20:00 PM

As a business owner, it can be hard to efficiently allocate your spending so your business sees an adequate return on investment. Having an LED sign can bring in more consumers or clients and build brand awareness, but it can also be an investment that your business isn’t ready for. The good news is that financing an LED sign has never been easier. It allows you to pay or “rent” your LED sign monthly so it’s not one bulk purchase. There are many other benefits to financing or leasing your LED sign.

Pro Auto Care Upgrades to Full-Color LED Sign

Posted by Molly Austin on May 10, 2021 3:15:16 PM

Pro Care Auto is an Automotive Services small business. The owner, Greg Jarossy, contacted Electro-Matic in January of 2018. They were moving to a new property and had an old, mono electronic message center that had failed. He wanted to replace and upgrade to full color, then take his sign along with him and make the upgrade once the property closed.

Technical Situation/Analysis
Electro-Matic was able to find the sign on Google Maps to get a feel for the structure and overall design of the sign. We were able to easily recommend 2’ x 8’ m/s both at 11 mm & 16 mm for Greg’s review. We also recommended he trade places with the EMC going to the ID cabinet space, and the ID to the EMC space. This would provide him with a bigger EMC allowing him more space for his variable messages and graphic options.

We were able to position ourselves as an asset for Greg as he reviewed both EMV and our Fusion product against some other options. He relayed that we were at the head of the pack. The project took just over a year from the first contact to close, which is a very consistent time period for a retail opportunity.

“We love it. Easy to program as well. Plus...your customer service is top-notch!”

Chapin's Banquets Utilizes New LED Electronic Message Center

Posted by Molly Austin on Apr 5, 2021 12:19:57 PM

Located in Minooka, Illinois, Chapin's Banquets and Catering is a beautiful banquet hall perfect for hosting a variety of events including weddings, receptions, fundraisers, birthdays, bridal and baby showers, rehearsal dinners, business meetings, holiday parties, graduation parties, sport banquets, off-site caterings and much more. On top of the banquet hall they have an exquisite full-service restaurant called Twin Rail Pub.

Chapin's Banquets found themselves in a predicament when water began to leak into their electronic message center which caused all sorts of troubleshoot problems. The overseas vendor they purchased the sign from years ago was not delivering adequate customer service in regards to providing new parts to replace those with water damage, or any other assistance for that matter. Chapin's wanted a new EMC from a company they could depend on. It was then they reached out to Electro-Matic Visual for some help. With Twin Rail Pub being on the back side of the building many people don’t know that it is.

When presented with the project, EM Visual knew the first step was to find a size to fit, and type of resolution that would best fit the needs of this application. The Electro-Matic demo trailer made it easy to present the owner with both an 11mm and 16mm option. 

Solution: After the demo the customer had decided that he only needed a 16mm full color based on his location. With the customer up on a hill and the cars below the 16mm was the best option while keeping price in mind. Once that was decided Visions Signs took care of all installation and permitting.

Benefits: With the new 16mm fusion message center Chapin’s and Twin Rail Pub with now have full exposure to promote their events. Chapin’s will use the message center as a way to advertise their services, but also advertise what event is going on. As far as Twin Rail Pub they now will gain street exposure and use this to promote food and beverage specials.

List products and services EM used:
16mm 60x144 LED Display.

External companies that helped on the project or solution and their services provided:
Visions Signs was the sign company that sold and installed the project.

Before LED Signage

The signage they were using was very costly and ineffective. People were still not getting the information they needed for upcoming events or fundraisers or even important school activities. They rely on mass emails to get the information across, but it would be nice to make it public for the community to see. The goal was to save money on different signage while getting the message across to the community about different events or important announcements the school was having.

Electro-Matic LED Solutions

Electro-Matic came up with a beautiful solution 6.5’ tall x 11’ long double sided 16mm display with Cellular Connection. Whoever is in charge of programming the sign will have remote access to be able to change the message at a moment’s notice if their laptop is within wifi. It is so much easier for Seaholm to get their message across and the sign looks absolutely amazing.
