The Science and Art Behind LED Signs and Displays

by Drue Townsend

LED is short for light-emitting diode. An LED sign is made up of a series of individual bulbs that are connected by integrated electronic circuits. These bulbs act as pixels for the display.

The Science Behind LED Signs

LED bulbs light up when electrons move along inside a semiconductor. These bulbs work together through an integrated display monitor, and that gives the sign the appearance of height and length.

It’s a Control Thing

The more pixels an LED sign has, the more control you have as a user. LED signs also let you get creative with color. You can highlight numerous colors in your sign or combine colors to make new combinations. With this level of creative control, the possibilities are limitless.

The Art Behind LED Signs 

LED signs and message boards are an extension of your branding and décor. They can be integrated into monument signs or affixed high up on a pylon sign for better visibility.

LED signs provide high impact communications that can be easily and frequently changed. This is especially helpful for retail businesses, churches, hotels and restaurants. High-resolution signs are ideal if your guests will be close-up. To catch passing traffic, medium or low-resolution signs are recommended.

If you want to make the most of text, monochrome LED signs are just the trick. If enhanced content management and creative options are what you’re after, LEDs deliver here as well.
