Recently members of the SkyRite Signage Team participated in
the International Sign Association Expo in Orlando, Florida. This conference brought sign companies,
lighting vendors and printing manufacturers from around the world to meet and
discuss the evolving technologies and processes in our business. “We want SkyRite to be ahead of the curve as our
industry continues to advance”, said Heath Davis, Operations Manager at SkyRite. “We have seen new products here that we will allow
us to create better designs and lower our customer’s costs”.
One area of interest to Heath is using LED lighting to
replace neon tubes. “Neon is a great
sign technology with plenty of nostalgic charm.
However, it can be costly to maintain over time. I have watched flexible LED tube technology
for some time. If we can build some
confidence with these products in the field, it could be a big win for our customers.”
Another interesting product was a transparent message
board. Primarily used in interior
retail scenarios, this clear message board made the images come alive. The costs of these boards are currently prohibitive
but, I will be fun to watch to technology advance.
We are so appreciative to our customers for giving us the opportunity
to attend and look forward to using much of what we learned to improve our
products and services.
