    We’re in uncharted territory with this one I’m afraid. What are all of you guys doing about this?  Our governor (Alabama) has issued a state of emergency, schools are closing for 2 weeks (toss spring break in and it’s 3) Everyone has been asked to “social distance” themselves.    I’m not a doctor but I do feel this is more serious than a cold and could end up really bad if we don’t take some precautions.  In what I’ve read and deciphered for myself, cleaning, hand washing and social di

    Curious about something.   I'm in one of the worst states there is in our grand Union and there is no sign of Business Like Usual.    With everything shut down, in just the last few weeks I've had about 3 phone calls from clients who have lost their business's because of $0 income, to quote them on Sign Removal.  PPP, and Self-Employed unemployment isn't enough to pay bills and a lease.   I've hated everyone of those calls, mainly because I've seen their venture fr

    Though most of us on this board here are American, America is also a very powerful idea. Many have fought for it, died for it, and died trying to spread the idea of America around the world, that idea of which is individual Freedom, Liberty, and the "Pursuit of Happiness" It’s an idea where capitalism and entrepreneur-ism thrives, where risk taking can be rewarded and it’s where the individual can make something out of nothing, or start with nothing and build an empire based on their own indi

    Anyone know anyone flying out from one of the restricted travel areas and if it will make it hard for them to come to the this years ISA Expo which is about a month away?   I might possibly come down this year last minute but also wondering if the restrictions are going to significantly shrink the show.  From the sounds of it, it appears so.    I've been talking to quite a few people in China the last couple of months.  The Chinese New Year pretty much shut the country down r

    My friend sent this photo to me last night. Looks like the driver tried to drive in between poles of this pylon sign in Wylie Texas. I wonder if the other pole is still standing.  Just curious of opinions of what would be the proper steps for a professional sign company to take to restore this pylon sign?

  • The Sign Syndicate BrightON II LED Module


    Maybe I should have titled it "That BrightON Halo Illumination"

    Thought I would share a project where our new High-End 24 volt, .8watt BrightON II LED Modules were used.

    As I've discussed before in the past.  There is a difference and a gap between "Usable Light" and "Competitive Light".  The BrightON II is the most efficient (Light per power) LED Module in it's class, and it is the definition of Competitive Light.

    As explained here and suggested for spacing, it was chosen to use the 3" module spacer, and obviously  you'll see as you scroll down the spacing could have even been much farther apart.

    "......Anyway, Fairmont contacted me just prior to the time I realized Regency was going to give me the runaround. So at the time, I didn't think to check for feedback here (lesson learned obviously). They asked me to remove a Goodyear sign. Did that, then the Regency crap started, then I saw their feedback. That's about when they asked me to remove signs at a Kwik Car location. I told them I would do it but if they don't pay...."

  • 24V - Sign Cabinet LED Modules


    Double Sided Cabinet Light Spacing For LEDs

    Most Light Source Suppliers and Manufacturers won't show you examples let alone "numbers" of light readings on Sign Cabinet or Sign Projects from light source components they push like these I'm posting here, but....This is The Sign Syndicate!

    "Seeing is believing" as they say.

    So, one of the components I've been big on because of feedback and demand is a strong enough LED module that doesn't cost an arm and a leg, isn't proprietary where you need to buy their special clips, brackets, etc, and actually put out enough light without exaggerated "Usable Light" under too far spread spacing that's supposed to save you money that won't compete with other existing signs in the area of your project. 

    Biggest complaint from sign shops about cabinet LEDs....."I don't want to use a whole bunch of power supplies!"
