What to Look for in a LED Billboard Manufacturer

What to Look for in a LED Billboard Manufacturer
In today’s digital world where everything is bright, vibrant and eye-catching, LED billboards are the future of out of home (OOH) advertising.  The key to a positive return on investment (ROI) is in the details of the LED billboard manufacturer’s products.  Here are some things you should consider when researching LED billboard manufacturers for your next LED billboard project.

Lifespan and ROI

At the inception of the LED billboard industry, the average LED billboard lifespan was 5-7 years.  ROI was often negative and outweighed the advantages of LED billboards.  Modern advancements in LED billboard technology by quality LED billboard manufacturers have extended the average lifespan to well over ten years, making it much more profitable. Irvin only partners with the best LED billboard manufacturer, ensuring a much higher ROI for your bottom line.

Installation and ROI

Another factor to consider when engaging a LED billboard manufacturer for your LED billboard project is installation cost.  Most of the current LED billboards require existing structures to be modified to support the added weight and wind load of the LED billboard panels, increasing the initial cost and adversely affecting ROI.  Irvin, in partnership with Lightking, can often eliminate the need for these modifications saving both time and installation cost.

Operational Cost and ROI

There are many operational costs to consider when discussing your next LED billboard venture with a LED billboard manufacturer.  Not all LED billboards are the same!  Many traditional LED billboard manufacturer designs require cooling fans and large power supplies.  Lightking’s proprietary technology eliminates the need for cooling fans used in traditional box style LED billboards. This design and the use of high efficiency power supplies cuts operational costs to a minimum, increasing your ROI even more.

Irvin is the Industry’s Trusted Billboard LED Lights Supplier and Here’s Why…

, ,

Choices, choices and more choices.  The market is flooded with companies, each claiming to be a “quality” billboard LED lights supplier. The problem is that the good majority of these companies have popped up over the past few years and are willing to sell any type of product just to make a sale.  Irvin is not a typical billboard lights supplier. We have been in business for more than two decades.  And, we don’t focus on just “making the sale;” we form long-term relationships and partnerships with our customers.

Irvin has earned the reputation of being the industry’s most trusted billboard LED lights supplier.  Unlike the typical billboard lights supplier who will sell anything to make a profit, we take great care in testing each and every product we offer.  Here is what makes Irvin’s MarqueeLED the most sought-after billboard LED lighting solution:

Solar Billboard Battery
Solar billboard lighting has revolutionized the overall performance and effectiveness of billboards without power and/or those located in rural areas.  Having the ability to illuminate a billboard 24/7 means increased revenue.  And, for billboards located in areas where electricity is costly, incorporating solar billboard lighting produces a quick and measurable return on investment (ROI).

Some argue that the most important part of a solar billboard lighting system is the type of solar billboard battery used. Irvin partners with one of the few solar billboard battery manufacturers who produce batteries that are suitable for renewable energy systems.  It is important to make sure that any solar billboard battery utilized in your system is reliable, requires little maintenance, is engineered to provide long-lasting power and is able to accommodate frequent deep cycles.

Electronic Billboards – Quality and Design Matter!


When it comes to electronic billboards (a.k.a. LED billboards) quality and design are what matter most!  While there are many LED billboard manufacturers to choose from, you want to make sure your products don’t just stand out, but stand alone.  This is one reason why Irvin is proud to partner with Lightking, the industry’s premier, most trusted LED billboard manufacturer.  When Irvin entered the electronic billboard market, we treated the product the same as the others we choose to represent.  We did our research, conducted testing and met extensively with Lightking’s management and design team to ensure that Irvin offers our customers the best quality LED billboards in the business.

Quality is key when it comes to the electronic billboard experience.  If the content is not sharp and readable, then it will not effectively convey the message.  Irvin’s LED billboards feature 16mm pixel pitch and 368 pixels per square foot to accommodate vibrant colors at different viewing angles.

Once you’ve invested in a quality electronic billboard, the next step is making sure your team is trained on best practices for electronic billboard graphic design.  For the most part, the rules are very similar to traditional billboard graphic design and include using large, sans-serif, bold fonts; staying away from white backgrounds; conveying a single message; maintaining brand standards (i.e. avoiding alternate uses of your logo) and keeping the design simple (i.e. avoiding too much text and photos).

Incorporating quality LED billboards into your company’s offerings can lead to a substantial increase in your bottom line.  More and more companies are opting to incorporate this engaging and eye-catching advertising strategy into their marketing mix.  Irvin is ready to partner with you to explore the best and most profitable electronic billboard options for your company.
