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.

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:

  • Longest LED life – more than twice that of most LEDs
  • Total Internal Reflectance (TIR) optics, eliminating the need for reflectors
  • No hot spots
  • No dark spots
  • DesignLights Consortium® Compliance
  • Water and weather tight
  • Patent pending “brick” design to accommodate future LED lighting technology
  • Solar option available
  • Made in the U.S.A

Billboard LED lighting is the wave of the future.

Companies who invest in billboard LED lighting experience an almost immediate return on investment in the form of significantly reduced electricity use.  And, because Marquee LED systems have the longest LED life, they don’t need to be replaced nearly as often as inferior billboard LED lighting options.

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.



Why LED Billboard Lighting Has Become the Gold Standard in Billboard Light Fixtures

Reliability, brightness, as well as energy and maintenance savings are prompting more outdoor advertising companies than ever to convert their billboard fixtures to LED.

Choosing a quality option, one that will provide the most return on investment, can be a challenge. And the initial capital expenditure is substantial. Still, the benefits of utilizing this newer technology on structures are vast compared to metal halide, high pressure sodium or induction, and include:

  1. Color Clarity – LED lighting appears much brighter than traditional illumination, so LED lit billboards stand out at night. Reds look redder. Whites look whiter.
  2. Longevity – LED billboard light fixtures last several years longer than traditional lighting.
  3. Low Maintenance – Billboard LED lighting require virtually no maintenance. Bulb and ballast change outs are a thing of the past.
  4. Energy Savings – LED billboard light fixtures require far less power to operate than traditional fixtures, which translates into fewer dollars spent on electric every month.

All LED fixtures tout the above benefits. But inferior products will not stand the test of time. Investing in high quality LED billboard fixtures now can save significant time and money in the future.

When it comes to billboard lighting, MarQuee LED is considered the industry gold standard.  There are special considerations for outdoor systems.  Billboard light fixtures need to be able to withstand even the toughest of weather – snow, rain, extreme heat, etc.    Hot or dark spots are also something to be avoided with outdoor systems.  Billboards require a reliable solution with a long LED life.  MarQuee LED is the one billboard light fixture that offers it all.

Total Internal Reflectance Optics

MarQuee’s patented total internal reflectance (TIR) optics allow each LED to cover a large portion of the billboard face.  In some cases, one LED billboard light fixture is actually powerful enough to cover the entire face.  This is in contrast to other outdoor systems.  Billboard lighting fixtures that use reflectors in conjunction to LEDs are not ideal because if one goes out, it is very noticeable. MarQuee LED billboard lighting is so powerful, should one go out, it would be unrecognizable to the naked eye.

Something to Grow Into

MarQuee LEDs modular brick design accounts for future improvements in LED.  This means that you can use the same billboard light fixtures as LED technology continues to advance.

Made in the USA

We are proud to carry products such as MarQuee LED billboard lighting that are made right here in the USA.

Water Tight and Weather Proof

This is one of the most important aspects of an outdoor system.  Billboard light fixtures that are just sealed run the risk of the seal failing.  All MarQuee LED components are water rated and designed to withstand rain. And, snow build-up is never an issue with MarQuee billboard light fixtures because the face/lens actually sits vertical rather than horizontal.

If you need a proven LED billboard lighting solution that offers significant reliability and savings, look no further. Contact Irvin to find out how MarQuee LED billboard lighting can work for you.
