How much does an outdoor LED Business Sign Cost?
(explanation first, numbers nelow)
Like most people in the early stages of planning, you are likely wondering how much will an outdoor LED business sign installed near you will cost.
When considering a budget, we provide a simple approach to start.
What are the Primary Factors that affect Digital Sign Cost?
The primary factors that affect the cost of the digital display portion are the size, resolution, and the quality/manufacturer of the LED message system.
Assuming the impressions on your sign will be mostly from those driving (rather than walking) by your business sign, it is the speed of travel and distance of the traffic viewing the sign that are the factors that most influence the size and resolution you will want and need for safe and impactful messaging.
With that in mind and to provide a simplified path to a budget range, we provide the estimates shown below based on the speed limit of the road where the sign would be faced. You’ll find additional information to understand where you might land for your budget in the following ranges.
Keep in mind that these price ranges are for top-tier (best quality) LED 2-sided display systems largely manufactured in the United States with industry-best warranty. They are typical for outdoor LED Business signs we’ve installed in Minnesota (MN) and Western Wisconsin (WI).
The numbers also include footings, structural, architectural elements, custom cabinet, and a static internally lit ID or Logo area. Everything that is typically required for a Custom Built Freestanding Sign.
The ranges are intended to include everything you’ll need (from below ground and up) to be running and fully trained to manage your new LED business sign, a digital marketing platform that you own and control!
LED Business Sign Estimated Investment Ranges
Based on Speed of Traffic Going By:
- 30mph or less: $30,000 – $60,000
- 35-45mph: $45,000 – $90,000
- 50-60mph: $75,000 – $150,000
- 65mph or more: $90,00 – $180,000+
2nd and 3rd options can be cheaper by 20%-50% but there will be big differences in vibrancy, longevity, ease of use, warranty, manufacturer support, cost of ownership, and ultimately ROI. As they say, the devil is in the details, especially with DIY suppliers you might find online. More on the quality tiers here.
Outdoor LED Business Sign Price Ranges Explained Further:
Just as important as the size and the resolution to consider for your sign is the quality of the LED technology and interface you choose.
There are a lot of options out there with a wide range of quality and prices, but only a few that land in the top tier. We’ll help you understand the differences and the reasons for those we recommend.
Architectural features built into the cabinet and monument as well as structural considerations for wind-load etc. will also affect prices and the budget range you will want to consider planning for.
