Visit Our Unique Sign Lighting Laboratory and Demonstration Showroom with LED Video Displays
Unique in the entire sign industry, Signs Manufacturing™ built an 85' by 50' (over 4,000 sq ft) indoor sign lighting laboratory for testing the longevity, visibility, and effectiveness of all the lighted signs we manufacture.
The Laboratory is open to the public, for FREE, adding an LED Video Display Showroom because we realized how important one would be to consumers.
If you are considering purchasing an LED Video Display or Digital LED Message Center sign this exclusive opportunity will be particularly important. You must determine what type of sign, and which LED spacing is best, so that your sign will be successful, considering how you will use it.
are always available for you to compare.
We invite you to also observe all other types of signage, viewing them up close as well as from a distance, under varying light conditions (and stay out of the weather while doing so!)
Will your Sodium Vapor or Metal Halide parking lot lights affect the colors of your sign at night? How visible will your pylon sign's border neon be during the day? Should you consider PinLights™, LetterLites™, SpectraLites™, or Trembler™ signs™ Brighter Signs™ neon or Solarbrite™ LED lighting for channel letter signs? Fluorescent or HID lighting for your monument sign? Do Daylight or Cool White fluorescents for your sign make the colors look best? What are the differences between a flex-faced, a Lexan™, and an acrylic-faced sign cabinet?
How will shadows affect my sign's readability during the day? Should the wall behind my sign be light or dark colored? Would a different type of sign look better on my brick wall? Should I consider a routed sign face with push-through letters?
Don't buy a sign from a drawing when you can actually see and compare real signs.

Your business will be better because you do. Can you afford not to?
"I almost made a huge mistake by
to you and visiting your Showroom prior to buying my sign. I
thought I knew what I wanted, after listening to so many
salespeople...boy, was I wrong. My vision of the sign did not
jibe with what it would really turn out to be, even after viewing so
many drawings. It was obvious the moment I entered the
Showroom. If I had stuck to my guns my sign would have been a
disaster. I would have wasted a lot of money."
Showroom SpecialsSometimes it really pays to shop.
As an additional enticement to coax you into our showroom, and also smooth our manufacturing flow, we periodically have limited Specials only available "in-store;" even unannounced to our sales team.
They are based on opportunities in our production scheduling. If we tell our salespeople in advance they collectively sell too many, causing other problems!
Specials are always for a specific type of custom-built sign with a large variety of available options, but a very limited quantity, and first-come-first-served.
The Benefits of Buying All Signs Factory-Direct
You need answers to these questions before you buy (anything from anyone.) Don't be a naive consumer.
Is the sign installer working for you, or the factory, or only the sign seller (broker?) Who is legally responsible? Who has the financial ability to remedy accidents and omissions? Single-source responsibility is best. Product liability insurance is good, too.
The Additional Benefits of Buying Our Sunburst LED Signs™ Factory-Direct
* A poorly installed EMC can void a factory warranty, leaving YOU to haggle responsibility with the installer and sign seller (broker.) For instance, without a separate grounding electrode being installed during the installation of most LED signs the manufacturer's warranty is void. Will you know if your installer doesn't install a grounding electrode? Problems will probably begin to occur months later.
Learning About Signs to Create a Successful Image
What results are achieved by every successful sign? To identify, to communicate, and to create the image you desire. It is hard to accomplish all three in a single sign.
Good signs incorporate sign design and marketing decisions creating the message, look, colors, sign types, sizes, quantities, etc. to create the required impact. They draw attention to themselves.
Quoting U. S. Small Business Administration research, 89% of businesses that fail do so because of improper signs!
Stated differently, good signs give a business an almost 90% probability of success.
Will ANY business decision you make affect you more? If you stop and think about it, you can't even risk buying an "average" sign; you need "exceptional" signs.
The trouble with improper or average signs is that you will never know how many potential customers they've driven away, or not attracted, by simply looking inappropriate. Your success or failure may be determined the day your sign is installed!
Fortunately, Signs Manufacturing™ is not a sign company, sign broker, or sign store. We are a sign manufacturer. We engineer exceptional signs for our customers.
Whether they are illuminated channel letters, neon signs, lighted sign cabinets, LED message centers, pole signs, pylon signs, or Monument signs that light, outdoor custom electric signs in front of your business are the least costly means of advertising available to you over time.
It is the most targeted advertising you can do according to the U. S. Small Business Administration (SBA), which also states that 85% of a businesses sales usually come from within a 5 mile radius. Your sign constantly advertises your business to a potential customer who frequents the area where your business is located.
If a sign costs you money its not doing its job. It should effectively advertise your company and earn you money.
As examples, how important would a free-standing pylon sign be to your business? McDonald's says that simply changing a Monument sign in front of one of their stores to a pylon sign increases their store's business 15%. A Whataburger that was unhappy with their new store's volume removed their brand-new pylon sign and installed one 40% larger and taller. The store's volume increased 23% the day after installation, and sales have exceeded the previous months for more than 5 years now.
The SBA says that an LED Message Center increases store volume 15 - 150%.
Purchasing the right signs for the job helps a business survive by bringing higher sales volume.
The importance of signs in helping a business to survive was recently underscored when the Small Business Development Center (SBDC), with their NxLeveL for Entrepreneurs training program, which is available in 40 states, added an entire week to their program to present more deeply ""the importance of signs and their impact on a business""
We can help, so long as your landlord and the City of allow you to install signs that will help your business. Unfortunately this isn't always true. Choose your location(s) wisely (and receive your landlord's approval of your signs package BEFORE you sign your lease.)
Remember the axiom "Location, Location, Location!" The supreme importance of "location" is the numbers of potential customers that will see your signs...and be able to read and understand them. Very important sign design and marketing considerations.
Your Cities Sign Ordinances can be easily accessed by visiting our "Sign Permits & Approvals" page, after accessing our "Installation & Service" page, if you wish to learn about your ordinances without our help. However we have worked with your city for so long we know them by heart.
The Texas Department of Transportation has probably counted traffic in front of your new location. Go to www.dfwinfo.com/trans/data/tcins to see how many vehicles will see your signs every day! Other regions have similar information available.
Surprisingly 30% of traffic on almost all business streets occurs when it is dark; people see your sign only if it is lighted when it is dark out, including on dark days when everyone else's sign is lighted.
With 18.6% of the entire US population moving each year, your sign will be constantly seen by MANY potentially new customers.
We sell our signs FACTORY-DIRECT, WHOLESALE to the public.
Each Sign Type, above and on the "Sign Types" page, has a "Cost" tab under its "Pricing" tab that lists general budget pricing for that type of sign.
But, please, contact us to develop an exact plan to meet your particular needs - for free (see our "Sign Design Center" page!)
Our professional staff will usually have exact quotations, and exact scale drawings of your signs installed on your building or property ready for you the same day we meet with you. (Much faster than the 2 1/2 week average in our industry.) Contact us NOW...Please!

TURN-KEY Design, Manufacturing, Installation, and Service
Why not buy from a Sign Dealer (also called a Sign Broker or a Sign Store?)
Would you give a car dealer $10,000 and tell him to buy you the best car he can for the money, sight unseen (or from a drawing?) Don't you think you would get the car that made him the most?
Do you think you could meet your needs asking for the cheapest car he can buy?
Why would a sign dealer (sign broker or sign store) be any different? Remember, they are merely buying a sign from a manufacturer to resell to you, usually to resemble a drawing, making the most money they can.
You need to know ALL of the details on how your sign will be manufactured, and how it will be installed. It needs to meet YOUR needs, not the seller's profit goals. What is he telling the manufacturer you don't need?
Believing "...a sign is a sign" gets you a Yugo instead of a Cadillac. Remember the Yugo? They didn't last very long, either.
Also, most sign dealers, sign brokers and sign stores cannot legally install or service an electric sign. Ask to see their license.
Ask to see a manufacturer's license also. A few are not licensed to do electrical work, either, they also have to hire other companies to install the signs they make.
Now, who provides the warranty? The manufacturer, the installer, the salesman, anyone? If the sign was installed illegally do you think they'll honor their warranty? Did they REALLY obtain your City sign permit? Is the sign even safe?
As a large, both UL and ETL listed manufacturer, our name is on all our signs. Just like you, we can't afford to have a bad sign destroy our business. We have to care, particularly with our LIFETIME* warranty.
If you wonder if a sign-seller can legally install and service electrical signs through-out Texas go to http://www.tdlr.texas.gov/LicenseSearch, enter "Electricians" in the "Inquire by License Type" box and the name of the sign business or person in the "Inquire by Name" box. If they are not licensed they can not.
So someone can sell you signs and not be licensed to install or service them. You may have to have this done. But unless the electrical signs you buy are "listed" (U.L. usually) they won't be allowed to be installed in Texas, a State of Texas Consumer Protection Safety Law designed to insure that signs are safe to use, with a few local city ordinance exceptions. It is not illegal to sell them to you, however. Buy carefully.
The State of Texas does NOT allow the installation on non-Listed electrical signs, and a Texas Sign Contractors License (TSCL) is not evidence of an OSHA approved Listing for electrical signs. Additional approvals are required.
"I had a ****-a-**** (sign company) right across the street " that store's out of business now " I found out they hired some other company to build and install our sign and they did a really #@%&&$ job, the thing has never lit right. ****-a-**** Corporate won't do anything, they say the closed store was an independent franchise, and the sign builder/installer won't fix it, they say we weren't their customer. I need you to come out, tell me what it will cost to get the thing working properly and get it fixed."
