      The Specials (some include free shipping) and reduced costs on selected electrical sign supplies that we stock continue even after Christmas when you're a Board Patron or National Patron.
      A lot of items are already reduced when you log in and you're an upgraded member. You might not notice the pricing unless you log out, then log in. You will see that the shopping cart prices are reduced when you log in.
      Just another reason to upgrade your free membership to a Board Patron or National Patron.

      We've made some changes when it comes to membership.
      There are now two groups of Supp/Mfg./Assoc members, I & II. I is for the business's that make under $2million in annual sales, II makes over. When they choose to upgrade their membership to a Board Vendor they are also broken up into I & II. Reason being is smaller vendors don't have their light sources in the light sources test comparisons. For the $350 a year as it was, it's too time consuming and costly for me to build out three or four compartments in the tests, the cost of operation for those tests and the time it takes to rotate the advert banners in the newsletters every week etc.
      The Supp/Mfg/Assoc members that make $2m+ are now $500 and $475 to renew annually. This is still a far much lower cost and better deal than joining an Association at $1,000 which comes with no real perks or advertisng unless you spend more, or paying for one issue of adverting of $10,000 for one single page in one single issue of a trade magazine. The adverting perks that come with the membership like the weekly newsletter banners that are a whopping 150x700 horizontal banner, and the three month rotating board vendor banner, and the affiliate banner seeing that the footer of the board has a much larger advantage.
      Also a new class is the National/Service Co members, these are the same as a Board Member, just a little different, they can't view or access the National Sign & Service Co Review List. Reason being, so they can't skew polls or their own listings. They can access this area when they choose to support this board and upgrade their membership to a National Patron which will give them access. This new Patron membership will have the same perks as a Board Patron but a few more. If their one of the Nationals that have a high rating on the board (Good relations / Pay on time) we will post openly in weekly newsletters and on the front page of this website the best National Sign & Service Companies to work for.
      Membership upgrade are purchased from our store

    • Hi Michelle and welcome   The reasons for investing in a pylon sign are too easy, and it's all about visibility for your tenants and investing in your tenants so their noticed.  Especially for centers that are not so easily seen from the public right of way.  That can be for a ground or pole sign.    I think a even better article that could help in educating property managers is having some knowledge in...is whether or not they should be investing and paying a large upfront cost in "retrofitting" their existing signage when marketed too by a lot of these so called "independent firms or consultants....who aren't actually interdependent at all, their actually salesmen or reps of light source manufactures.   They will walk into your office as if they are the "wizards of smart" and can come in with a impressive power point presentation.  They may even have a lot of articles from our sad trade magazines, whom aren't actually trade magazines at all, their actually just brochure magazines who are more set on selling one page ads than actually representing the truth for the electric sign industry.   Property managers and developers are fed a lot of marketing claims such as "savings"...."efficient"....."Return on investment".     I'm talking about Retrofitting from conventional light sources such as Fluorescent or Neon Lamps to LED   There is a lot of mis-information by these reps and sign companies who are looking to make profit on parts and labor of LEDs for something that makes no sense in most cases.  There is very little difference in power consumption between the three when it comes to equal light output, and very little difference in cost of operation.  IN fact in most cases, the ROI on retrofitting is and can be 20 to 40 years, and in that time consumers will be re-retrofitting many times over and that savings never comes.   So consumers who have no background or experience in light sources, or their cost of operation are being mislead into thinking Fluorescent and Neon Lamps are inefficient, dangerous and have poor light output, when actually the opposite is true.   But, you won't find any of this out from a light source rep who was a lift-gate salesman one day and a LED rep the next who has never even held, tested or evaluated a  Neon or Fluorescent lamp.       We have done a lot of testing here on the Sign Syndicate in lumen maintenance, cost of operation, and I probably would only trust about 10% of LED products out there on life, and that doesn't even scratch the surface of apples to apples light output.  When you hear or are being told statements such as "80% in savings and efficiency".....nothing is further from the truth because a rep is comparing a penlight to a mag-light and telling you the penlight is saving 80% in efficiency.     The truth is.....you can only claim one product is more efficient than the other when both have equal light output  BUT..... one is doing it at a lower cost of operation.  ONLY then can you claim one is actually more "energy efficient"   Sadly, there are a lot of sign producers who are lazy and or have very little knowledge of fabrication in integrating Fluorescent & Neon Lamps for illuminating signs OR, they prefer to have a lower cost/wage in employees that don't have the skill set in a wide variety of applications so they only produce with a "LED everything" attitude.  Which is great for them in a business sense....     ....but terrible for the consumer who can be left with a end-product that has cheap imported Chinese LEDs or product that has the environment that is too harsh for LEDs   There is something that consumers are NOT aware of.  Every light source has their strengths and weaknesses, and not one light source is a fit for all applications

    • I remember a couple sign shops in town would loan/trade each other the font cards for the Gerber 4b.  I still say all the time that you can tell a graphic artist that drew or painted signs vs one that had only done stuff on the computer.
