Carmanah’s LED Sign Group has received an order from a large US tire company retailer for 600 countertop LED edge-lit signs. The point-of-purchase signs will be used in the client’s distributor franchised retail stores across the US as part of a new product launch. The eye-catching countertop sign is cut to the shape of a tire, and is illuminated using blue ultra-bright LEDs. The design also accurately maintains the integrity of existing text styles and logos for smooth integration into the customer’s existing marketing program.

Carmanah’s LED Sign Group has been designing and manufacturing energy efficient, LED edge-lit signs for the last 10 years using the innovative ultra-bright LED and edge-lighting technology. Because each Carmanah sign is created using state-of-the-art manufacturing and production procedures, virtually any logo or design can be engraved or laser-etched on an LED edge-lit sign with unparalleled accuracy. The result is an exceptionally bright, crisp and eye-catching marketing tool that can enhance any company’s product.

Carmanah is also very knowledgeable and skilled in developing unique housing designs for sign display. The Company’s signs can be housed to hang from all types of ceilings and walls, or can be free-standing for countertop applications.

Carmanah’s signs are shipped throughout North America and abroad to many of the world’s most progressive and successful companies. The Company currently has more than 60,000 signs installed worldwide. For more information about Carmanah’s unique LED illuminated sign solutions, please contact:
