LED Digital Electronic Message Center Signs and Video Displays are also known as LED Signs, LED Displays, Display Signs, Digital Signs, Jumbotron Signs, Changeable Signs, Changeable Letter Signs, Scrolling Signs, Marquee Signs, Message Boards, Electronic Billboards, Display Boards,  and Readerboard Signs or Reader Board signs, among many others.

Electronic message centers and video displays help your company many ways:

  • They allow real-time communication with potential customers.  With almost 20% of the US population moving in a year, new potential customers of varying demographics are always viewing your signage.  What is effective now may not be effective later…or after lunch.

  • LED Displays attract attention through animation and brightness so they increase awareness of your organization's location and your products.

  • Digital Displays are prettier than signs with changeable plastic letters, improving the appearance of your building.

  • Your message is not limited by the size of your Digital Signage, or to only one message.
  • Your advertising dollars invested in your LED Signs are targeted to selling in your trade area, preventing excessive advertising expenses.

  • Changing your Video Display, any time you wish, is as easy as typing.  It can be done often and safely.

  • Quality electronic marquee signs are readable from a further distance, especially in poor lighting.

  • Full color digital display signs are vastly superior to monochrome scrolling marquee signs in impressing potential customers.  Fortunately they are no longer vastly more expensive!

Turn drive-by traffic into walk-in customers!

Quality LED Digital Displays since 1979US Small Business AdministrationResearch shows that you have 3 seconds to attract a passer-by’s attention and communicate your message.  An electronic message center will make your message stand out from the crowd of signs around you.  Even displaying the time and temperature can give a viewer valuable information which they will associate with your business.  Combining that capability with animated messages, possibly in color, can really drive your sales up, 15% to 150%!

Even the Federal Government has determined that signs containing electronic message centers are safety enhancing devices, not traffic hazards!  This is why they are used on roadways to communicate with drivers.

Is Signage Expensive SBA.pdf

The importance of signs in helping a company to survive was recently underscored when the Small Business Development Center (SBDC), with their NxLeveL for Entrepreneurs training program, which is available in 40 states, added an entire week to their program to present more deeply "…the importance of signs and their impact on a business…"

Digital SignageWe can help, so long as your landlord and the City understand the importance of good signs and allow you to install signs that will help you succeed.  Unfortunately this isn't always true.

Choose your location(s) wisely (and receive your landlord's approval of your signs package BEFORE you sign your lease.)

City Signs Ordinances, and Landlord Lease Restrictions, can doom a company.

Most City Sign Ordinances can be accessed by visiting our "Permits & Approvals" page, after accessing our "Installation & Service" page, if you care to learn about them without our help.  However we have worked with them for so long we know most of them by heart.

Remember the axiom "Location, Location, Location!"  The supreme importance of "location" is the numbers of potential customers that will see your signs...and be able to read and understand them.  Very important design Limited Lifetime Warrantyand marketing considerations.FREE ESTIMATES on all our LED signs

If you are located in the Dallas/Fort Worth "Metroplex" in Texas the Texas Department of Transportation has probably counted traffic in front of your new location.  Go to www.dfwinfo.com/trans/data/tcins to see how many vehicles will see your signs every day!  Other regions have similar information available.

Amazingly, 25% of a company's street's traffic does not normally travel on that street.

With 18.6% of the entire US population moving each year, your sign will be constantly seen by MANY potentially new customers.

Visit Our Unique Sign Lighting Laboratory and LED Video Display Showroom


Unique in the entire sign industry, Signs Manufacturing™ 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.

LED Display Showroom has all of the video display optionsWe 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 LED spacing is best, so that your sign will be successful, considering how you will use it.  Therefore, 6 mm, 8 mm, and 10 mm 481-trillion-color LED Video Display signs are always available for you to compare to monochrome and 4-throusand-shade display signs.

Mobile, portable electronic message centers!

BIG Business Booster


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

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

If your storefront 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 above, Sunburst Displays™’s new portable self-powered LED electronic message center and video display.

Local companies 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!

Using Our Website to Learn About Sunburst Displays


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.

An example of our dedication to helping our customers succeed is this website. It IS the definitive source on signage information, ranked by Alexa® in the top 0.05% of ALL websites in the world, the top 0.01% in the USA! Not bad for a sign company serving North Texas. (We placed the website online in 1999, and have been improving it ever since.)

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.

Demand Solarbrite(TM) LEDs for the best looking signs!

Sunburst Displays™ uses Solarbrite™ LEDs exclusively to manufacture Sunburst Displays™.  Click on the "LED Technology" tab on the "Technical Details" page to learn why.

Serving all of TexasWith 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.

 * A poorly installed EMC can void a factory warranty, leaving YOU to haggle responsibility with the installer and sign seller (broker.)  For instance, without a separate grounding electrode being installed during the installation of most LED signs the manufacturer’s warranty is void.  Will you know if your installer doesn’t install a grounding electrode?  Problems will probably begin to occur months later.

Is the sign installer working for you, or the factory, or only the sign seller (broker?)  Who is legally responsible?

Who has the financial ability to remedy accidents and omissions?  Single-source responsibility is best.  Product liability insurance is good, too.

Why Buy Factory-Direct, and from a State-Licensed Company?


Digital Display full color sign installed between poles in a pylonWhy not buy from a Sign Dealer (also called a Sign Broker or a Sign Store?)  There are literally hundreds of them.

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?

Believing "...a sign is a sign" gets you a Yugo instead of a Cadillac.  Remember the Yugo?  They didn't last very long, either.

Also, most sign dealers, sign brokers and sign stores cannot legally install or service an electric sign.  Ask to see their license.

GuaranteeAsk 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

Why Should I Buy from Sunburst Displays™?


Signs Manufacturing™ is an excellent sign company, we make great signs.

But just being a good sign company does not necessarily mean that a company can install and service Electronic Message Centers. They may be able to weld, install fluorescent lamps and roll paint, but can they build, program and service a computer?

Electronic Message Center Monochrome in a stone monumentDigital LED electronic message centers are very complicated computers, remotely served by other computers, use proprietary software programs, and are not what most sign company employees, or electricians, understand.

But because these signs are electrical they must be installed by a qualified electrical sign company or an electrical contractor.

We are the largest electronic message center manufacturer in North Texas; one of only 3 in the entire State!  And we are State licensed as both an electrical sign contractor and as an electrical contractor.

We know what we are doing when it comes to Electronic Message Center fabrication, installation, and service.  We even carry all parts in stock for immediate replacement if something fails.

A large part of our business is repairing mistakes other sign companies and electricians made installing signs they bought and resold to their customers.

"We paid $34,000 for a full-color LED message center from Wal**** Signs & Lighting.  It took them 11 months to get it installed.  It is now 4 months old and has never worked in full-color mode.  They don't know how to make it work.  Can you fix it?"

Jack Miller, Grace Point Church

EMC Built into Additional SignageElectronic Message Centers are usually built into additional signage, not installed by themselves (see our "Design Center" page!)  Doing so makes them less expensive and more effective at the same time!

But most electronic message center manufacturers do not manufacture additional types of signs.

Sunburst Displays™ makes more than electronic message centers.  We manufacture, install and service church signs, school signs, apartment signs, park signs, governmental signs, architectural signs, etc.  Interior signs as well as exterior signs.

We manufacture road signs and building signs including channel letter signs (internally lighted with neon, Solarbrite™ LEDs, the new automatic color-changing SpectraLites™ LEDs, or externally lighted with first-surface LetterLites™ LEDs), neon signs, wall sign cabinets, pole signs, pylon signs, monument signs, message centers, PinLights™ LED signs, architectural signs, plastic lettering, metal lettering, trim-cap lettering, awning signs, plaques and more!

We champion brighter, energy-saving solutions that save our customers money while protecting our environment.

We have lots of experience.  Click our "Design Center" tab to learn how we can help you - for free - design signs that will meet City, State and Landlord sign restrictions, and your needs.

The Value of “Listed" Signs


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.)

Certification (testing and labelling) organizations acceptable in the USA to test to the multitude of Standards signs are required to meet are determined by OSHA.

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.

Buy carefully.

UL Listed SignsETL Listed LED SignsIntertek 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)
