Custom LED Signs | Full-Color & Monochrome Electronic Signage | Digital Billboards
Sunburst DisplaysTM has been building quality custom signs,
|Guaranteed Highest Quality...Guaranteed Lowest Price™|
There are 3 different designs of LED Signs manufactured;
Classic™ Pixel-cluster design,
Balanced Array™, and
Which one is best? It depends.
We not only manufacture all 3 designs, we explain to you the differences, help you decide which is best for your specific needs, and let you see for yourself in our Showroom.
Don't buy your sign until you know you're buying the right one! Your LED sign should help your business grow, but not all LED signs (or LED sign manufacturers) are the same.

No matter what types of signs you are interested in, our sales team, consisting of 11 highly-trained factory-employed individuals, is at your beck and call.
You will probably have a firm quotation for what you want during our
meeting; certainly no more than a day later.
There are 19 questions you must have answers to before investing in signs. Questions not about the signs themselves, but about how the signs will be perceived, and how long they will take to pay for themselves. Our sales team will bring you a COMPLIMENTARY PROFESSIONAL MARKET SURVEY of your new signage locations. Click on the "Sign Market Research" tab to the left for details.
Unique in the entire sign industry, Sunburst Displays™ built an 85’ by 50’ (over 4,000 sq ft) indoor sign lighting laboratory for testing the longevity, visibility, and effectiveness of all the lighted signs we manufacture.
We have opened our laboratory to the public, for FREE, adding an LED Video Display Showroom because we realized how important one would be to consumers.
You must determine which display type and LED spacing is best, so that your sign will be successful, considering how you will use it. Therefore, 6 mm, 8 mm, 10 mm, 12mm, 16mm and 19mm 4+billion-color exposed-LED Balanced Array™, exposed-LED Classic™ pixel-cluster signs, and SMD enclosed-LED Signs are always available for you to compare to monotone message centers and monochrome 4-thousand-shade display signs.
We also display a see-thru curtain-wall display sign, and a curved LED display sign.
Also on display is an economical fixed-message Full-color LED Message Center, and a fully self-contained, self-powered portable LED Sign trailer, the LED Sled™.
Don't buy a sign from a drawing, a slick website, or photo-shopped pictures, when you can actually see and compare real signs.
No one else, sign company or not, can offer you this unique opportunity. Be sure to take advantage.
"I almost made a huge mistake by not listening to you and visiting your showroom prior to buying my sign. I thought I knew what I wanted, after listening to so many salespeople...boy, was I wrong. My vision of the sign did not jibe with what it would really turn out to be, even after viewing so many drawings. It was obvious the moment I entered the showroom. If I had stuck to my guns my sign would have been a disaster. I would have wasted a lot of money."
Sometimes it really pays to shop.
As an additional enticement to coax you into our showroom, and also smooth our manufacturing flow, we periodically have limited Specials only available "in-store;" even unannounced to our sales team.
They are based on opportunities in our production scheduling. If we tell our salespeople in advance they collectively sell too many, causing other problems!
Specials are always for a specific type of custom-built sign with a large variety of available options, but a very limited quantity, and first-come-first-served.
Arrange an on-site demonstration today! Demonstrations are available in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex and all of North Texas.
View first-hand the importance of everything we discuss on the pages that follow.
Come and see the array of equipment and tools, and the facility dedicated to making good signs.
Contact a sales consultant to arrange a plant tour.
Your sign forms that very important "first impression" your potential customer has of your business. Your sign must always look nearly as good as it looked the day it was installed so that you survive; don't give potential customers a worsening impression of your business as your sign ages.
Click on the "Technical Details" tab to the left to learn about the intricacies of an LED digital electronic message center.Also discover how we make each sign to last; including the use of CNC manufacturing, rust-proof metal, structural-steel frames, high-end automotive paint, high-impact plastics, and most importantly, sophisticated protective coatings. All our signs include these many hidden features, critically important to you but often ignored by competitors so they can make more money. We even add self-cleaning properties. View our Construction Details page to learn more about these features.
Sunburst Displays™ uses SolarBrite™ LEDs exclusively to manufacture Sunburst Displays™. Our LED Technology page explains why.
With an electronic message center you are leaving your computer out in the Texas rain, ice, heat and cold, and tornados and hurricane-force winds are trying to blow it away. Sunburst Displays™ are Built in Texas, for Texans, by us.™
But, it takes more than purchasing an excellent sign for your success. It must be installed properly, and someday in the far future hopefully, it will need to be serviced. This is why it will be important to you that WE manufacture, install and service your LED electronic message centers!
Please use and enjoy this website, the largest information resource about electronic message centers on the internet, in conjunction with our Corporate website www.SignsManufacturing.com, created so you can learn about all types of signs and how you can control their affect on your image.
We believe that if you're a knowledgeable purchaser there's a real good chance you'll become our customer.

Would you give a car dealer $10,000 and tell him to buy you the best car he can for the money, sight unseen (or from a drawing?) Don't you think you would get the car that made him the most?
Do you think you could meet your needs asking for the cheapest car he can buy?
Why would a sign dealer (sign broker or sign store) be any different? Remember, they are merely buying a sign from a manufacturer, maybe foreign, to resell to you, usually to resemble a drawing, making the most money they can.
You need to know ALL of the details on how your sign will be manufactured, and how it will be installed. It needs to meet YOUR needs, not the seller's profit goals. What is he telling the manufacturer you don't need so he can make more money?
Also, most sign dealers, sign brokers and sign stores cannot legally install or service an electric sign. Ask to see their license.
Ask to see a manufacturer's license also. A few are not licensed to do electrical work, either, they also have to hire other companies to install the signs they make.
Now, who provides the warranty? The manufacturer, the installer, the salesman, anyone? If the sign was installed illegally do you think they'll honor their warranty? Did they REALLY obtain your City sign permit? Is the sign even safe?
As a large, UL listed manufacturer, our name is on all our signs. Just like you, we can't afford to have a bad sign destroy our reputation. We have to care, particularly with our LIFETIME* warranty.
If you wonder if a sign-seller can legally install and service electrical signs through-out Texas go to http://www.tdlr.texas.gov/LicenseSearch, enter "Electricians" in the "Inquire by License Type" box and the name of the sign business or person in the "Inquire by Name" box. If they are not licensed they can not.
So someone can sell you signs and not be licensed to install or service them. You may have to have this done. But unless the electrical signs you buy are "listed" (U.L. usually) they won't be allowed to be installed in Texas, a State of Texas Consumer Protection Safety Law designed to insure that signs are safe to use, with a few local city ordinance exceptions. It is not illegal to sell them to you, however. Buy carefully.
"I had a ****-a-**** (sign company) right across the street … that store's out of business now … I found out they hired some other company to build and install our sign and they did a really #@%&&$ job, the thing has never lit right. ****-a-**** Corporate won't do anything, they say the closed store was an independent franchise, and the sign builder/installer won't fix it, they say we weren't their customer. I need you to come out, tell me what it will cost to get the thing working properly and get it fixed." - Chris Jennings, Jimmy Johns
Virtually ALL cities, as well as the State of Texas, adopt the National Electric Code as law.
The National Electric Code (NEC) requires that for electrical, structural, and installation safety all electrical signs be "Listed" (tested and labelled with an appropriate Listing Mark.)
For you the Listing Mark is insurance. It means that the sign has been tested to insure that it is structurally and electrically safe, and will be installed properly. You benefit from the knowledge that it is not solely us telling you that our signs are safe, this is what the testing laboratories and the US Government says also.
Will your sign be tested and approved for safe use in a Wet (Outdoor) location? Not if it’s not Listed!
Underwriters Laboratories (“UL” Listing Mark) and Intertek (“ETL” Listing Mark – originally Edison Testing Laboratory founded by Thomas Edison) are the premier certification organizations and 80% of all things electrical are tested by them.
If the sign you are purchasing does not have a ETL or UL Listing Mark label the sign is probably not legal to install, anywhere in Texas. There are a few local city ordinance exceptions.
Intertek is over twice the size of UL, and has a greater global presence. UL is the largest in the USA. We have both companies test and apply Listing Marks to various signs.
Whether it's channel letters, a wall cabinet sign, a monument sign, pole or pylon signs, electronic message centers, video displays, neon or other electric signs Intertek and Underwriter’s Laboratory pose the toughest design, structural, electrical, and installation standards on the products they approve.
We are the 9th oldest UL Listed Manufacturer in North Texas. (File #UXYT.E149959)
To see if a manufacturer is a UL Listed electronic sign manufacturer go to http://database.ul.com/cgi-bin/XYV/template/LISEXT/1FRAME/ccnsrch.html and enter "UYFS" in the "UL Category Code" box, replacing "%ccn%".
To see if a manufacturer is an ETL Listed sign manufacturer go to http://etlwhidirectory.etlsemko.com/WebClients/ITS/DLP/products.nsf/ and enter "UL-48" in the search box.
There are many sign companies that pretend to be Listed, but are not!
Incidentally, ISO (International Organization of Standardization) Standards, such as ISO 9001, are NOT electrical Listings (similar to a UL or ETL Listing) that allow a sign to be installed in Texas. That said, components in our electronic signs also meet ISO 9001 and 2008 standards.
Underwriter’s Laboratory and Intertek do NOT judge the appearance, appeal, or the longevity of a product. This is why our many years of experience serving international, national, regional and local customers, and our investment so that we can apply the knowledge we’ve gained, will give you a superior product which will impress your customers for years to come.
We are a full-service sign company. We provide sign site surveys, sign permits, sign installation and sign maintenance services for electrical and non-electrical signs for our customers as well as other sign companies.
