How many shopping days till Christmas? That shouldn’t be too hard to figure out. But calculating the hours, minutes and seconds you have left to find that perfect gift is probably not something you should try at home. That’s what count down timers on colorful LED signs and scrolling message centers are for. The beautiful part is that you can park one of those money magnets right outside your entrance or in your store window. Message? That gift is in here, buddy. Time to end the pain.
Christmas shopping isn’t really a pain. Or shouldn’t be. People love the lights, the festive atmosphere, the anticipation, the decorations… did we mention the lights? LEDs have gotten so cheap, they’re used in Christmas lights. Solid state LED lighting is actually perfect for something you staple to your house, drop in the snow and throw into the back of your attic for 11 months out of the year. But let’s say right now you have an aisle full of LED Christmas lights on sale. If you had a programmable LED sign above the door or in front of your store, you could put your sale on lights… in lights! The real message for LED outdoor signs and indoor scrolling message centers IS the message. Display pithy holiday sayings. Use all that cool Christmas imagery, like flying reindeer, angels blowing horns and packages under pine trees. Make it snow. People will stop to watch your LED sign work like a snow globe, guaranteed. It’s all about the programming, the color and video capability. Get the right sign and it’s all very easy. At 9 p.m. you can mark down that last batch of blenders from your PC or your phone… while you’re at the boss’s Christmas party. Won’t she be impressed! You can dim or brighten your outdoor signs automatically. And if your parking lot was lit by bright, energy-saving LED luminaires, you could afford to sell cars and Christmas trees all night long!
Whether they are hanging in your trees or spreading the Good News of Christmas from your store, church, school or dealership, LEDs last (almost) forever and are kind to the environment. What more can you ask for a holiday message display? It’s not too late to make it an LED message center Christmas!
