Is a full color LED sign worth the money, or would monochrome do the job just as well?

You don’t want a misstep in this stage to result in lost revenue.

Advantages of Full Color

Full color is just that – full of color. You can put up graphics, pictures and logos that fully express the bright, cheery vibes you want your customers to see. Marketing via an LED sign isn’t just about spreading information. It’s about creating an aura around your company that your customers will identify with and want to learn more about.

You likely won’t be surprised, however, to learn that color LED signs are more expensive than their monochrome counterparts.

When Is Monochrome All Your Sign Needs?

But sometimes simpler is better. Monochrome signs still allow you to display text and graphics, but they don’t look quite the same. If your business is not competing with many other LED signs in the same area, this may be all you need to get your message across in an original, more affordable manner. Not only will it cost less to get it installed, the cost to keep the display running is less too.

Think About the Return on Your Investment

An LED sign should stand out from the crowd, attract attention and set your business apart. If you have basic monochromatic lettering flashing on a screen, it may not be enough to capture the attention of your prospective customers. In today’s world, it takes more than just a digital message to get attention — you have too many competitors who can easily distract your client base.

Also, when you invest marketing funds in purchasing, installing and running the product, you don’t want your decision between a full color or monochrome LED sign to come back to haunt you. You want to make sure the tool you chose is having the desired affect: drawing eyes to your sign and drawing customers into your business.
