Friday, October 12, 2007

Following an initial order of over $500,000 in July 2007, Carmanah's LED Sign Group has received an additional $80,000 order for LED edge-lit point-of-purchase signs for a major North American consumer electronics company.

After evaluating several signage alternatives, the communications company chose the contemporary look and ultra-slim profile of Carmanah's customized LED edge-lit signs to identify its authorized dealers throughout the United States. Key performance benefits including a 10 year LED lamp life, zero maintenance and energy-efficient 12-volt operation also factored into the decision to use Carmanah's sign technology.

Carmanah's LED Sign Group has been designing and manufacturing energy-efficient, LED edge-lit signs for more than a decade using an innovative combination of ultra-bright LEDs and proprietary edge-lighting technology. Using state-of-the-art manufacturing and production procedures, Carmanah can illuminate virtually any logo or design with exceptionally bright, crisp and eye-catching LED output. The result is a unique marketing tool that can create additional awareness for any company brand, product or service.

The LED edge-lit signs designed and manufactured for this particular customer also feature Carmanah's exclusive EvenLitâ„¢ acrylic sheet - a unique cell-cast acrylic product that is an ideal medium for accurately reproducing the customer's complex and colourful logo in accordance with corporate identity guidelines.

Other benefits of Carmanah's proprietary LED edge-lighting technology include:

  • Unparalleled clarity and uniformity of output
  • Energy-efficient operation that uses up to 90% less energy than fluorescent or neon alternatives, and up to 25% less energy than many competing LED illumination technologies
  • Long-lasting LEDs that can operate maintenance-free for up to 10 years
  • Ultra-slim housings that provide a streamlined appearance, and offer a variety of custom finishes and a range of mounting options
  • A durable design that is significantly more resistant to damage during shipping than traditional illuminated signage, making it ideal for large-scale national roll-outs

Carmanah's bright and attractive LED edge-lit point-of-purchase signs can help to increase brand visibility, while attracting new customers and encouraging purchase behavior. With more than 60,000 sign installations worldwide, Carmanah's client list includes many of the world's leading brands.
