Cost is always top-of-mind when it comes to running a business. If you’re a business owner in the Houston area of Texas, you want to get the most out of your signage for the least amount of investment. Can you do that with electronic digital display boards?


What Are Electronic Digital Display Boards?

Electronic digital display boards operate in much the same way as many signs do. There is a sign panel with a two-dimensional face on which you can display text and/or graphics. The only difference is, because it is electronic and digital, such a display board can scroll through different slides of information, can display graphics that appear to be three-dimensional, and can create the illusion of movement.

What Are The Benefits Of Electronic Digital Display Boards?

The first benefit of an electronic digital display board is that you can convey a lot more information than with any other sign. You can cycle through different pages of text and graphics on the digital screens. Imagine a quick service restaurant in Katy, TX. If they have an extensive menu, they will need either a giant menu board or they would have to use tiny font. But with an electronic digital display board, they could cycle through different pages of menu, allowing people to see their different options before they arrive at the ordering counter.


Those slides turning over would be a form of movement which is another thing an electronic digital display board can do. Movement catches the eye, as does illumination. As a result, if a North West Houston retail store installs an electronic digital display pole sign outside their business, they will generate 91% more impressions than any other sign. Those are a lot of benefits. But electronic digital display boards aren’t inexpensive.

Are Electronic Digital Display Boards Worth The Extra Investment?

Electronic digital display boards are more expensive than most other signage options. But compare them to other promotional tools such as a TV advertisement or a billboard and the price per impression is less. Many of the businesses in Katy, North West Houston, and elsewhere in the Houston area all need to spend money wisely. If you are thinking long term, an electronic digital display is worth the investment. You can program a digital sign wherever you want and you don’t have to buy a brand-new sign. After a few years electronic digital display boards will actually save you money and get you noticed more.

  • 5 star review  We had an outstanding experience with our signs! HGS made decals for the sides of our trucks. Brent helped us with creating the right electronic file from one of our old files. Michelle has been proactive in her communications. Quality is far better than we have received from other sign companies. HGS will be our permanent sign company going forward!

I subcontracted them for a signage and wall graphic installation project I had in Houston and they have done a fabulous job. Very prompt responses and communication, great client service, and flexible to on-site changes. Would highly recommend!

  • 5 star review  Wonderful experience! Price was competitive, customer service and quality of work was better than expected. I had to replace a store front sign just and these folks went out of there way to make sure they understood what I wanted and exceeded expectations at every point of the process.

  • 5 star review  Michelle and her team work very quickly. When I placed my order with Houston Graphic Signs, I was on a tight deadline. Not only were they Friendly and Helpful but they were also Fast and Professional. The vinyl stickers I ordered look AMAZING and are made with quality materials to hold up to wear and tear! Thank you HGS for a job VERY well done!

  • 5 star review  Used Houston Graphic Signs to wrap one of the trucks in our fleet. We've had a vendor we've used for years that we were satisfied with, but HGS is in our office complex, and we figured we'd give them a shot. The whole process from their quote, to completing the work, to invoicing was seamless and easy. The wrap went on great with no issues, and the price was a significant reduction from what I was used to paying. Great process all around, and I plan on using these guys for all of my graphics needs.

  • 5 star review  They made a custom yard sign for me very quickly. It was affordable, well made, and exactly what I was looking for. I have had several neighbors comment on it andI happily yell them where I got it. I would use Houston Graphic signs again without hesitation for any signage needs.
