Metro Sign & Awning Answers: Electronic Message Boards

Q:  Does your firm do repairs and new installs of electronic message boards?

A: Yes, Metro Sign & Awning sells, installs, services and repairs all types (and brands) of electronic message boards. The popular signage is perfect for many interior applications, as well as for outdoor permanent and temporary signage. If you have an electronic message board (EMB) or are thinking about getting one, we’d love to talk with you. 

Due Diligence Required to “Get the Message”

We’ve found many business owners buy electronic message boards and electronic message centers (EMC) without conducting a “due diligence” process. As with any sign investment, it’s important to consider where and how the sign will be used, and whether there are local ordinances or community regulations limiting their use. And of course, not all electronic message boards are built with the same standards. Different grades of components can dramatically impact the visibility, durability of the signage, as well as its cost of operation.

If you have a question about signage or the services we provide, please ask! We answer each query individually, of course, and post some of the most frequently-asked questions here.
