Posted by Jesse Cameron on Jul 12, 2017 10:51:04 AM
 
Weathervane Heating and Cooling, Inc. of Howell, MI is known for their high quality, “Luxaire” Heating and Air Conditioning units and their professional knowledge on heating, cooling, and ventilation. Weathervane offers the highest level of home comfort by consisting of efficient, reliable and cost effective products and services. Much like Weathervane’s foundation, Electro-Matic Visual’s LED displays proved to be the right fit because it matched the high level of efficiency, reliability, and cost effectiveness and with the help from Image 360 the project was able to be completed.

Image 360 and Electro-Matic Visual were able to give Weathervane this attractive sign to help them reach the traffic driving by. Their location sits well above the road and it was previously harder for people to identify what exactly the building was on top of the hill.

“Weathervane Heating & Cooling had no sign and are 100 feet above road level. They needed a unique way to communicate to vehicles driving by. Electro-Matic Visual’s message boards got the job done.” – Joe Agius, Sign Designer, Sales & Content Creator, Image 360 – Brighton, MI

Now with their new LED sign they are able to communicate with passing traffic to promote their “Luxaire” Heating and Air Conditioning units and their best service offers. Not only are they able to promote deals on products and services, but now their sign can help build their brand image and professionalism that they have.

Front Street Insurance Agency Takes Advantage of Location With Installing An LED Message Center

Posted by Jesse Cameron on Apr 10, 2017 3:05:31 PM
Front Street Insurance of Traverse City, MI was looking for a creative way to take advantage of being well traveled street just blocks from downtown Traverse City, MI. Front Street Insurance and Andrew Kohlmann, owner of Image360 of Traverse City, they concluded that an LED message center from Electro-Matic Visual would be best for this application because of the slow moving, high volume, traffic passing by and Electro-Matic Visual’s dependable tech support and training team.

“Electro-Matic Visual’s tech support team dealt directly with our end user and was able to have a person on-site to make installation and training go very smoothly for all involved.”- Andrew Kohlmann, Owner, Image360 Traverse City

Front Street Insurance and Image360 evaluated many different options and specs before deciding to install the full color, high-resolution 10mm LED display. The reasoning to go with a high-resolution display was for a several different reasons. The first being is that it looks outstanding, even when you are close to the display. The second is because with the slow moving traffic, passing viewers will be able to read it clearer than a lower resolution display. And third, the full color high-resolution display draws the attention to the business and sign, acting like a personal billboard for their business.
 
Electro-Matic Visual is happy to see Front Street Insurance having success with their new full color, high-resolution LED display and taking advantage of their location to communicate to the slow moving high traffic street!
