So much of running a successful business in a competitive market such as Houston is about getting noticed. An electronic digital message board is a great way to convey information and grab people’s attention.

What Are Electronic Digital Message Boards?

Electronic digital message boards are a type of illuminated sign. An illuminated sign is any sign that is lighted. That includes a pole sign that’s lit up outside a restaurant off I-69 in Sugar Land, channel letters outside a retail store in Katy, or a cabinet sign in a business in uptown Houston. But those are all traditionally simple signs. They rarely display any information other than the name of a business, its logo, and possibly its slogan. Electronic digital message boards can convey a lot more information than that.


When you think of a “message board” you might think of an online forum. Or, if you’re old school, you think of a bulletin board in a community center. Either way, you think of something that can display a lot of information. And electronic digital message boards are similar. They cycle through different “pages” showing different information. As such, they can say a lot more than the name of your Sugar Land or  Katy business.

What Kinds Of Messages Can You Display With A Digital Board?

You can display pretty much any information you want. In places like airports and train stations, digital message boards are very handy to display arrival and departure times, etc. The same is true at government buildings, such as the DMV. But what about at private businesses in Houston? How can they use electronic digital message boards?


One of the most common uses is at restaurants, specifically quick service restaurants. Electronic digital message boards can cycle through different menu items and display special or sale items prominently. These can be installed inside your business, such as above the checkout counter, or even in the front window, so you can entice people inside. Electronic digital message boards can also be used to advertise products in retail stores, to display services in salons, spas, and barbershops, or for a number of other reasons in other businesses.

How Do Electronic Digital Message Boards Work?

Because they are digitally programmed, these boards are easy to use. Any time you want to display new information, just reprogram it. This can save you money as you don’t need to buy a new sign every time. Digital message boards usually use LEDs to light them up as they are efficient, long-lasting, and attractive.

  • 5 star review  Houston Graphic Signs is a fantastic business with amazing customer service and a fast turnaround! Michelle was extremely helpful and communicated with me every step of the way. I ordered a yard sign to announce my son's graduation from college and it is much nicer and bigger than I expected! It was also packed with great care which tells me how much they value their customers. I will definitely give Houston Graphic Signs more business in the future!

  • 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!

  • 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.
