A Guide on LED Signage: Where & How to Use it to Your Advantage

With digital technology constantly evolving and on the rise, you cannot ignore using it to your advantage. In such a digital age that we’re currently in, if you are not using LED signage or displays to help attract new customers, you are ignoring so much opportunities.

So how can LED signage be used, and where? We’ll talk about the benefits, plus the best ways to take advantage of LED technology.

What is LED signage?

Custom LED signage are digital LED displays placed in various locations for promotions, information, entertainment, and more. The sheer brightness and quality of LED signage is made to catch your eye. These digital signs are made up of thousands of pixels and LED diodes and can be used in both indoor and outdoor applications.

Being completely customizable, the number of digital displays options are endless. Whether you are trying to attract customers to your storefront, elevate your sermons at your house of worship, or informing students on campus, you can utilize digital displays in a multitude of ways.

5 benefits of LED signage

When it comes to investing and utilizing LED signage, there are several benefits you will notice. Here are the top 5 we feel are the true difference makers:

Low maintenance

With modern technology, the LED panels and displays used require very little maintenance and upkeep. They are truly an reliable, easy to use technology that you can continue to use hours and hours with very minimal issues.


The LED display products from Firefly LED are made to last up to 100,000 hours — this makes the lifespan of LED twice the length of LCD. As mentioned prior, the low-to-zero maintenance required AND the benefit of such a long lifespan, make LED signage a great long-term investment.


Look, everyone is looking at some kind of digital display these days — whether that’s their phone, tablet, the TV — you can’t go far without seeing a display. Therefore, if you are not utilizing LED signage, you are losing the opportunity for those eyes to see your business. LED signage gives you this added level of visibility, that you otherwise don’t have.


Another great advantage of LED signage is the low ongoing costs for energy. Even though they are much brighter, LED is very energy-efficient and the technology used dissipates heat more evenly, compared to traditional signage.


Compared to your ordinary signage, where it’s a basic rectangle, with digital displays like LED signage you can create custom configurations to really stand out. This includes custom shapes, curvatures and sharp angles. Plus, you gain much more control over the content, brightness, and usage.
