Carmanah Supplies Custom LED Coffee Signs to Specialty Retailer

Friday, September 7, 2007

Carmanah's LED sign group has received an order for LED edge-lit point-of-purchase signs from a leading specialty coffee retailer and wholesaler. The ultra-slim, double-sided coffee signs will display the company's logo with bright, white LED illumination. The eye-catching signs will be installed at the retailer's company-operated and licensed outlets throughout the Western US and Japan.

This is Carmanah Signs' second recent sale into the specialty coffee market. "The retail coffee segment is fiercely competitive, and operators must do all they can to make their product, and their location, stand out from the competition," said Karen Kuonen, Business Development Manager at Carmanah Signs. "The slim profile and modern aesthetic of Carmanah's LED point-of-purchase signs make them an excellent choice for this image and space-conscious customer segment."

Carmanah Signs has been a leading designer and manufacturer of energy-efficient LED signs since 1993. The company's signs are created using the latest in LED and edge-lighting technology, making them extremely bright, crisp and effective.

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.
