The Bright Side To Using Electronic School Marquee Signs

Posted by Morgan Marks on Mon, Feb 18, 2013

Outreach is one of the most important aspects of running a successful school. A school isn't just someplace that students get dumped for 8 hours a day; it's a community. It's a meeting-point. It's one of the centers of activity in your community. Whether you're trying to get people to come to the big game, or merely trying to advise students of a weather delay, you need effective communication systems.

Electronic school marquee signs are the perfect outreach tool for a school looking to make the most of its budget. These LED signs are long-lasting and use far less power than any other form of illuminated sign, yet they allow you to change the message on them whenever you want! These signs can be used to the full extent of your imagination.

Electronic School Marquee SignsHow can electronic school marquee signs improve your campus? Here are just a few of their benefits.

  • Get noticed: Despite having lower power consumption than any other lit sign you could use, LED school signs are far brighter than anything else on the market. Nothing can out-shine an LED display aside from a bigger one. They're even clearly visible during high daylight. If your school is along a roadside with a lot of commercial messaging, a LED marquee sign is just the thing to get noticed.
  • Make important information seen: These signs are excellent for relaying health, safety, and emergency information to students and the wider community. Unforeseen complications such as weather alerts or bomb threats can be clearly announced for all to see. In the event of an actual emergency, they can even be used to provide vital information to officials arriving at the scene.
  • Share news with the community: Did your football team make the playoffs? Is your glee club headed for regionals? Is a long-time favorite teacher finally making tenure? Electronic school marquee signs bring your news to the entire town, and inspire people to take notice of the contributions your school is making.
  • Video advertises your accomplishments: If you have a full-color video model, your LED display becomes your own advertising central. Show full-motion videos of your track team or cheer squad in action. Add clips of your band or any special school events. Use video to bring your school closer to the outside world. Let them see your triumphs, rather than just reading about them.
  • Reduce maintenance: A typical electronic LED marquee sign lasts around a decade with minimal maintenance. In fact, since an LED sign is made up of hundreds of individual lights, having a few burn out over the years barely impacts its visibility at all. When you combine that with easy-to-use software which makes updating your messages a breeze, and you have a no-fuss sign.
