State Licensed Sign Installation and Service

The State of Texas requires by law that all companies and individuals installing or maintaining electric signs and/or neon have a license.

It is a State criminal offense to even offer to install or service an electric sign without an appropriate license.State of Texas Seal

Installing sign on 14th Floor via CraneTo obtain a State license all individuals must meet experience, testing, standards of professional conduct, and continuing education requirements.

To obtain a State Sign Contractor’s License the company must be represented by a Master Sign Electrician (12,000 hours of training minimum), all electrical workers must be licensed, lead-men Journeymen must have a minimum of 8,000 hours training, the company must carry insurance to protect their customers, and they must comply with Texas’ Workers’ Compensation Insurance laws.  All work performed must meet minimum standards.  The business must be operated in an honest and professional manner.

Many companies, who cannot meet the State’s licensing requirements, work under the lesser licensing requirements of individual cities and communities.  Some require no training or experience, or insurance, only the payment of a fee!  They can only work in that location, however.

Our State Sign Contractor's License #’s are: TSCL18015, and TSCL18016.

Out-of-Area Installation or Service

If you want to have us manufacture a sign for you and arrange for its installation outside of Northeast Texas, or if you want us to manage maintenance on your company's signs nationally, "click" our "Project Management" tab to the left.

Timer or Photo Cell?

Cabelas InstallationWe are often asked this question.

"When I have electrical power run to the sign should I have a photo cell or a timer installed to turn it on and off?"

We recommend both!

A photo cell works OK if you want your sign on all night.

A timer works OK if you don’t want your sign ever to be on during the day – even if it is cloudy and dark out.

What works best is both.  The photo cell turns the sign on any time it is dark enough for the lighting to draw customer's attention, the timer keeps it from being on from say 11 to 6 in the morning when there is no one around to attract their attention!

Electricity is only used when it will help your business.

The "Metroplex" Success Story

The Dallas/Fort Worth  "Metroplex" continues as the fastest growing large city area in the United States, year-after-Flag of the Great State of Texasyear.  It is the fourth fastest growing such area in the world.  As fast as in China or India!

North Texas is expected to gain over 4,000,000 new residents in just the next 4 years!  The business economy HERE remains healthy!  Well over 100 new businesses are started in just the D/FW Metroplex every week.

Don't let the "doom-n-gloomers" talk you out of being successful.  This is the best time ever to start a new business in North Texas and Northeast Texas.

The Hottest New Signs

Three new sign-types will separate you from the crowd.

Have you noticed that the signs that catch your eye most often are LED displays?  Signs like LED billboard displays.

Gaining attention gains you customers.

You can gain the advantages of LED faces on your new signs.

These signs are better-looking, cost less, and use less energy.

They are LetterLites™ LED Channel Letter faces (Left) and PinLights™ LED Cabinet Sign faces (Right.)  Click on the images to learn about these exciting new concepts.

Also go to our "SpectraLites™ & LED" page  under Channel Letter Lighting Choices to learn about back-lighted Channel Letter faces that automatically change colors.  There is a video so you can see them in action.

Patents Pending.

BIG Business Booster

There is no question that LED electronic message centers are the business signage communication wave of the future.  Local advertising has never been cheaper because of them.

Every business has a need to promote special events, sales, sponsorships, etc.; either at their business location and/or at local sports events, parades, church and school events.

The LED Sled Portable LED Message Center TrailerIf your business is not located where you can have a permanent messaging sign, or you need to advertise at multiple locations (like the kid's soccer game), the question is, HOW?

This question has been answered with “The LED Sled™” pictured here, Signs Manufacturing’s new portable self-powered LED electronic message center and video display.

Local businesses have never before been able to be so creative, to think so far outside the box to gain a competitive advertising advantage.

“To rent, or to own, THAT is the question.” (sorry Shakespeare.)  How often do you need to promote your business?

If you are a multi-location business you need to own one of these!  Some location ALWAYS has special needs or opportunities.  Or a new store under construction.

If you’re not in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex you absolutely need to own one because you are too far away for us to rent you one!

Visit our “Message Center Rental” or “Portable Sign Sales” pages under “Message Centers” for details.
