Bring Back the Light!

Wednesday, December 28, 2011

As the shortest day of the year approaches, darkness is actually falling before 5:00 in Harford County. Lights are coming on earlier in town – and that means sign lights as well. 

Backlit or side-lit signs are cost-effective ways to communicate your message year-round, but especially in the dark of winter. Ultra-thin backlit LED signs have been the rage in outdoor signage for the last year. According to, the reasons for their success include reliability, brightness and temperature. The technology is reliable over time. 

LEDs are durable, and if kept in an appropriate enclosure, can have a lifespan of up to 10 years. LED backlit panels display at a brightness of 1,500-2,000 nits, which helps them to perform well in direct sunlight or ambient light. At night, the high brightness makes the image pop. Finally, LED technology handles extreme temperature fluctuations better than other technologies, despite some challenges.

So when it gets dark in Harford County, look around at the lighted signs at businesses, churches, health clubs and banks. Then make your sign stand out in the dark.
