Why Electronic Message Centers ?


You own and operate a store or two in Virginia. One of your toughest challenges is developing a steady flow of customers year round. You’re hoping your newly restructured marketing mix does the job in getting more bodies into the aisles.

Your radio advertising’s morning drive campaign just broadcast two 30-second ads. One of the employees caught the end of one on her way into work.

In a Facebook post, your friend’s wife mentioned she saw your newspaper ad for the first time on the back of one of her coupons. It’s been running six months. As you were responding to her post you happened to see one of those banner ads you run for your store on the side bar.

An older couple from church called to say they enjoyed your 60-second TV ad they saw a few times last month after the 11 o’ clock news. They thought it was cute.

Word of mouth awareness about your store is getting around and lots of people recognize your name and a little bit about your products, but few know in detail what you offer or your exact location. You’ve been in business almost twentyCulligan-Daktronics-LED-Message-Signs years!

Is It Readable? 3 Visibility Concerns for Storefront Signage

www.holidaysigns.com-chester-va-custom-storefront-signsIs Your Storefront Readable?

Three Visibility Concerns for Retail Storefront Signage

Signage Provides the “Can”
   New York, the nation’s largest city, (and 25th in the world), is concerned about the ongoing success of their retailers. And they very well should be, and so should our cities and towns here in Virginia. As a former small business owner, I knew not having enough capital was the top reason for a small business to fail, but I also understood the value of marketing capital and the one visual asset that can make or break a retailer’s location: and that is storefront signage.  
  “When executed well, the storefront can serve as an invitation to the shopper, increasing business for individual merchants and improving the overall shopping experience. Well-designed storefronts can create an environment where people will want to linger, shop and return again,” according to a brochure written by The O Group for the New York City Department of Small Business Services.
   Notice the word “can” as it appears twice in the above quotation. It is an important auxiliary verb offering positive results only under certain circumstances, as in this case when executed well, or in other words, it works if you know the right recipe. Good signage is an important ingredient of a retailer’s success, or “can”, so let’s look at what makes good storefront signage for retailers by analyzing what does not…
  These days there are lots of materials to choose from for storefronts! Brick, block, stone, stucco, painted wood and metal, glass, natural woods and metals, and plastics to name several options, and the list goes on. It is good to select materials that fit the brand, but be careful that the colors of the facades don’t detract from the readability of the signs placed upon them. Work with a professional sign consultant or sign manufacturer who understands contrast. Sometimes in the name of good contrast, a standard brand has to be modified to fit a location. This could mean changing the colors or adding contrasting color bands between the letters and the background.
  The example shown is a set of gilded dimensional letters on a plain white wall. During the mid-day sun, the lettering is so bright that it is hard to read against the light-colored wall.  Low-key, high quality design may be part of their brand statement, but perhaps visibility could have been improved by adding a dark rectangular backer panel, or by adding dark-colored “clouds” behind each gold letter to make them stand out from the background.
  I noticed several stores with trees planted right in front of their main identity signs. Don’t misunderstand that landscaping adds great value to the ambiance of a shopping space, but it is important to plan for plantings outside of a sign’s viewing angle. Trees, especially as they mature, can completely block the valuable icons that lead shoppers in, thwarting further return on investment. To eliminate chances of any store branding obstructions, developers should coordinate early on with city planners and landscapers (if possible) just where certain trees should go or not go by delineating planned signage viewing zones on the site plans.
  Depending on the graphic design, shadows can either create negative or positive readability. If the letter faces are white, shadows usually help the letters pop off the wall. If, however, the background walls are light color and the letters are dark without an outline, the effect of the shadows can make it nearly impossible to read because the letters and the shadows all blend together like in the example shown. The shadow challenge can be overcome by incorporating light color faces with outlines and dark returns.
  Another design strategy is to keep the widths of the letter strokes wider than the shadows if it helps with legibility during bright lighting. Letter width also affects the viewing angle at which the lettering can be read. The wider the stroke of a letter, the wider the horizontal viewing angle, and viewing angle is important for sign visibility by potential customers passing at close proximity.

www.holidaysigns-chester-va-viadaDESTINATION: YOUR CITY

How do people perceive Austin, Portland, and Las Vegas? Isn’t part of the lasting brand of a destination the impression of the skyline and bright city lights? How can we brand Virginia Beach? Richmond? Charlottesville? Culpeper? These were some of the discussions at this year’s Virginia-1 Summit in Northern Virginia.

Tourism is a $21.5 billion industry in Virginia, employing 213,000 Virginians across the Commonwealth. Virginia’s hospitality industry thrives on the growing flow of visitors to our mountains, valleys, cities, farms and seashores. Our hotel and restaurant customers rely on bright, eye-catching and inviting electric signs to lead this inflow of people through their doors, and many attended the Tourism Summit at the Hyatt Regency Reston this www.holidaysigns.com-richmond-va-LOVE-tourism-electric-signsweek.

The conference was held at a luxurious hotel located in the Reston Town Center, just a few miles away from where the new Silver Metro Line now connects Reston to Washington, DC. As I looked out my 10th floor hotel room Sunday night, I could see the bright lights from the Reston Bowtie Cinema, one of our recent sign projects; and during a luncheon video presentation highlighting Norfolk’s skyline, I noticed the high-rise electric sign we made for the Dominion Resources Building shining bright. It’s neat to see our signs at work! There is just something about the way a city street lights up at night that really leaves a lasting ambiance. It is kind of a romantic feeling and it makes me remember the area and I want to come back. It’s all a big part of destination marketing, which was a topic of this year’s summit.

The three-day conference offered many great workshops about new ways to boost Virginia as an attractive tourist destination, and the group became energized during a lunch session yesterday by Governor Terry McAuliffe. The Governor said that the Virginia tourism industry has become very important, especially in light of sequestration.  

www.holidaysigns.com-richmond-va-small-business-signsHere are portions of an official press release from the conference:

“We’re unified by one common goal: to make Virginia a better place to live, work, play, and raise a family,” said Governor McAuliffe.

VA-1, the Commonwealth’s annual summit that focuses on ways to maximize Virginia’s tourism potential, had more than 400 people from all sectors of Virginia’s tourism industry in attendance this year.  The summit also aimed at identifying new and game changing ideas to stay competitive, leveraging new opportunities through networking and relationship building, and advancing Virginia’s prominence as a premier, global travel destination.  Breakout sessions included topics such as “The Power of Creative Communities,” “Building Major Music Festivals,” “Marketing Virginia Weddings” and “Eco Travel & Tourism.” 

Also driving home the importance of tourism in Virginia, Secretary of Commerce and Trade Maurice Jones said, “Tourism has consistently proven to be a sound investment for Virginia. “It is an instant revenue generator, channeling millions of dollars into the Commonwealth’s coffers and into the revenue stream to local governments.”

PTA & Alumni Group Spruce Up a Virginia School Message Center Sign

www.holidaysigns-chester-va-viadaPTA & Alumni Group Spruce Up a Virginia School Message Center Sign

  I was passing our local high school campus today which fronts Main Street and noticed a buzz of activity; so I stopped by to see what was going on around their main identification sign.

  I saw a parking sign that told me not to park in the spot I had picked because it was reserved for teachers, but since I left my motor running and lights on, I was exempt from that rule, right? At least that’s one of the things I didn’t learn in driving school, but accept as Scripture because that’s just what people do. I got out of my Jeep and walked up to investigate all the activity.


  Turned out it was a science class doing meteorological science experiments around the base of the sign. While observing all the students and their gadgets and containers, I spoke with the teacher a little bit. He told me the Class of 1964, who originally provided the main school sign, had made a gift to rehabilitate the landscaping around the marquee and clean the two brick columns that supported it. With help from the PTA, we helped renovate the school message center about 18 months ago by replacing the acrylic reader board with one made of polycarbonate material, and we also replaced the changeable letters, brightened up the graphics, and repaired the locking hardware on the clear security cover on the front of the sign. But the previous aged landscaping and weathered brick detracted from any sign improvements.

  Wow! What a difference cleaning the brick and providing the new landscaping made on the school image! Some neat benches were added to the mix and they provided a warm, welcoming, student-friendly environment at the main entrance to the high school.  Lots of times schools will start out with the standard, manual changeable message signs and then upgrade to electronic message centers down the road. Maybe the science class was doing some R&D around the sign to calculate just what type of exterior digital message center the alumni group could purchase as another special gift in the future to withstand the atmospheric conditions at their Virginia site!

Approach to Selling Signs: Sign Viewing Distance & Sight Lines

November 2014-Technically Challenging- Part 4 Our Approach to Sales HeaderOur Approach to Selling Signs

Part 4: Sign Viewing Distance & Sight Lines


  There are reasons for selecting certain sign products, and the best solutions can only be accurately estimated once you determine what’s best for your particular site.  Our approach to selling signs is a process. Throughout what usually ends up being a series of meetings, our project managers educate customers about effective sign design, asking important questions to “scientifically” develop each sign proposal.

  Two important sign design considerations in choosing the right sign for your site are:

  • What’s the best height relative to the roadway elevation and obstructions?
  • What’s the optimum sign viewing distance from the road?


1.Determine Obstructions

  First, you need to determine any viewing obstructions that could prompt raising the overall height of your sign. Crowded visual environments detract passers by from reading low-to-the-ground signs, so elevating signs can enhance their visibility in certain areas. Sometimes, simply because of a low grade, you have to elevate a sign just to get it in the pNovember 2014-Technically Challenging- Part 4 Our Approach to Sales Blog Blurbroper sign viewing zone for motorists. In cases where signage fronts interstates or other high speed thoroughfares, the higher the sign the better for maximum exposure.

2.Chart your Visibility Zone

  Once you determine the right height, you need to map out your “sign visibility zone.” The optimum visibility zone is in the area where the line of sight drawn at 45 degrees from the sign in each viewing direction intersects the center of the roadway extending back to a place on the highway within the driver’s cone of vision without visual obstruction to a point where the sign can be designed to maximize the local code. 

3.Design Your Sign

  After you have figured out the maximum line of sight, you need to plan the minimum letter height for readability from that distance. (As a general rule of thumb, calculate about 1 inch of letter height for every 36 feet of sight distance based on average letter contrast and 20/20 vision on a clear day.) Keep in mind that LED-lit signs actually have a greater visibility distance at night and LED message signs have better readability 24 hours a day because of the sign brightness. In addition to sign height and letter height, other factors like viewer reaction time, viewer reaction distance, color contrast, and negative space also play a part in the overall scientific sign design for optimum visibility.  Now you can design an effective sign sized correctly, designed for best contrast and readability, maximizing code to do the best job of turning traffic into customers.

4 Cases of Successful Virginia Electric Sign Upgrades

4 Cases of Successful Virginia Electric Sign Upgrades

   Perhaps the changes in Washington will affect economic outlook moving forward, perhaps not. One thing is clear: There are proven ways to improve commercial vacancy rates in any economy, and upgrading signage is one of them.

   Much has been written and discussed about vacancy rates throughout the Virginia commercial real estate market. New ways to attract and keep good commercial tenants in the office, industrial and retail sectors has been a hot topic in our region for some time now. Just a few weeks ago, the National Association of Industrial and Office Parks (NAIOP) Northern Virginia Chapter hosted a program in Falls Church, Virginia called: “Case Studies of Successful Leasing Strategies- from Vacancy to No Vacancy.” Many of the area’s building owners and property managers shared creative and successful ways they filled their spaces and repositioned projects. Signage is one aspect of developers’ repositioning plans that gets left out of these discussions, and it’s a big perk that can be used to attract strong tenants right along with targeted leasing programs, enhanced amenities, spec suites, and other good marketing ideas.

   What does the future hold for the retail industry? Throughout Holiday Signs’ service area of Virginia, Washington, D.C., Maryland, and North Carolina, our malls and shopping centers are being transformed to meet the different ways consumers buy goods and services. The NAIOP group points out that new “lifestyle” centers are popping up throughout the region. To be successful, brick and mortar retailers and their landlords must find ways to stand out over competing e-commerce and changing social trends. Just today in McLean, NAIOP of Northern Virginia hosted another expert panel discussion comprised of retail owners and developers, a retailer and a retail futurist and consultant, who discussed the ever-evolving retail industry.

   Perhaps enhancing retail signage is one topic for Virginia developers to consider as they plan future marketing concepts. The following four sign case studies may help as guides…




   We worked with AREA Properties, LLC of Rockville, Maryland, who recently renovated the Rockwood Square Shopping Center in Chesterfield County, Virginia. The center had a high vacancy rate, but after all the renovations it is close to 98% full, much of which is attributed to the new signs according to Gary Modjeska of AREA Properties. “Signs were a very, very important part of the repositioning of the property,” he said.

   Since the property was not a high end shopping center, the client wanted signage that would not be real expensive to potential tenants. Gary worked with Holiday Signs project manager, Allen Twedt to come up with a new design for the center’s signs. Before renovations, the center had plain, rectangular-shaped box signs with flat faces and poor hodge-podge designs.  The client originally planned to replace everything with channel letters but asked us what we thought.  We told him we could come up with a nice design for box signs that would include some architectural amenities. If a tenant changes, all that needs to be done is swap out a new face, keeping a new tenant’s costs down in the future versus them having to come up with money for a new set of channel letters.

  Allen and the Holiday Signs design team utilized an interesting lighting sconce detail for the box signs and the main pylon that tied all the signage together. The detail appears on the front pylons as well as the storefront and under-canopy signs. The owner also liked the idea of keeping all the tenant signs consistent and uniform regarding colors and layout.  The sign backgrounds are opaque; so at night all that is seen is the copy and the lighted sconces giving the retail center a classy look instead of the typical image portrayed by standard illuminated white background box signs. Adding the simple architectural details and keeping all signs consistent in design supports a unified theme that is attractive to customers and has helped the center grow and thrive again after re-imaging.

   This was the first project we provided for Gary at AREA Properties, LLC, but he said he will use us again on future projects because he was so pleased with all aspects we provided him.




   The sign on top of the Hotel John Marshall in Richmond, Virginia, was a historic landmark. It needed work to restore it back to its original vitality. Built years ago and abandoned in 1988, it became a ghostly reminder of its neglected past. It was rusting away. The lighting in the 34 large, 7 foot tall letters was the old incandescent bulb type. There were some 1,400 light bulbs per side which were major energy hogs always in need of maintenance. They regularly burned out and there was a big safety concern involved with changing them.

   When new owners took on redevelopment in 2009, they needed to make substantial energy improvements to obtain HUD funding. Holiday Signs was chosen as the best firm qualified for the sign restoration. We worked for Choate Interiors, a part of Choate Construction, the General Contractor. Even with the developer’s 3-year relationship with another sign company, we got the job because of our technical expertise. Looking at the large sign project from an owner’s point of view, we wanted to make the investment in the sign renovation economic over the lifetime of the sign: both initial cost, and operating costs of energy and maintenance. We also had to make sure the new cost-efficient signage was historically accurate.


  Our creative solution replaced old incandescent bulbs with low-voltage LED lighting that looked historically correct by using modern digital printing technology. We recommended closed face letters with printed covers that would make them look like the old open-faced bulb letters while offering the LED lighting components protection from the elements of the harsh rooftop environment. We demonstrated prototypes and then met with the Chief Architect for the National Park Service (since the hotel overlooks Richmond’s Slave Trail it is under NPS jurisdiction), and representatives from the City of Richmond and the General Contractor to tweak the digitally printed bulb designs and LED lighting placement to where all parties were satisfied with the effect.

   By utilizing LED, power consumption for illumination was reduced by 70%! As an added value service, we worked with Dominion Power to www.holidaysigns.com-restoring-historic-signs-in-virginia-electric-signs-antique-signs-Coca-Cola-Signs-NEON-SIGNS-REPAIR-INSTALLget the General Contractor a substantial rebate for the huge energy reduction. Today, the renovated sign casts an accurate image of Richmond’s bygone era while utilizing many of the benefits of modern-day sign and lighting technology in its day to day operation.



  Holiday Signs added two large full-color Electronic Message Centers (EMC’s) to an existing double-faced entrance pylon at Towne Center West, a Lifestyle Center owned by Breeden Companies. It is located next door to a 1.3 million square foot Super Regional Center, so competition for shoppers is intense.

  Prior to the addition of the EMC’s, most of the inline tenants had limited visibility to the 25,000+ cars that pass by the center each day. Tenants had spent countless advertising dollars to draw customers into their shops, but that only produced limited results. Breeden, anxious to help their tenants increase their visibility and draw in new customers, hired Holiday Signs to evaluate their center.

  Holiday Signs specializes in helping developers and shopping center management revitalize the signage for their centers. Many times we recommend updating signage with updated design, new graphics, tenant panels or fresh paint but in this case the main identification sign was only a few years old. A thorough analysis suggested the addition of two new EMC’s to the existing pylon would give the tenants their much needed visibility.

  Once the EMC’s were in place and the messages started rolling, tenants began to see an immediate increase in traffic to their stores: “The advertising sign is working great for us,” said Kathy Crawford co-owner of HoneyBaked Ham. “HoneyBaked Ham has seen double-digit increases since the digital sign was installed,” chimed in her husband and co-owner, David Crawford. He said it’s even better that the HoneyBaked Ham corporate office provides digital content for the sign.

  Adding an EMC to your signage package is a great way to attract new tenants while retaining existing ones. Many retailers see value in having their messages prominently displayed to potential customers and most will gladly contribute a portion of their marketing budgets to reach them. Landlords understand the value of utilizing EMC’s as revenue generators because they are now able to charge their tenants for the number of messages they run each day, week or month. Most importantly, when compared with radio, television and direct mail, the cost per thousand is lower and infinitely more effective than other forms of advertising.



   Research shows that grocery-anchored retail centers have the best survival rates during the toughest economic times and that is one good reason moderate investments in facade and signage upgrades at supermarket-based centers make sense for developers. Economic development officials understand the importance of healthy retail centers and don’t want commercial properties in their areas to reach the point of decline.  

   Here are some good points about how upgrading signage at declining centers helps from Mike Davidson, Economic Development Director, of Campbell County, in Central Virginia:

   “Renovating and retrofitting existing shopping centers makes good economic sense,” he explained.

  “Refreshing the visual appearance of properties gives consumers the feeling that something new has happened and helps to retain and improve traffic into those centers.”  

   Mike recommends re-purposing centers when they become vacant with new or different uses to revitalize existing property that has already had considerable investment in installing infrastructure, and he referenced a recent success story of this kind from his area.  

   “This also helps to prevent blight from creeping in to areas,” he pointed out.  

   “Having something nice & appealing rather than worn and old always enhances the opportunity for consumers to want to visit and see what is being offered in those centers,” he said.

   Neglected retail centers are often viewed as one of the top culprits of crime and the decline of neighborhoods, conditions that lead to lower property values and tax revenues.  Offering their help for ailing commercial developments, cities and counties across our service area have special matching grants and tax credit programs in place for signage and storefront renovation.
