In Spring of 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic caused widespread closures throughout the country. Schools were forced to close their doors and adapt to a new world of virtual learning. The elimination of face-to-face interactions left many schools needing to also find new ways to keep students focused, engaged, and safely continue their fundraising efforts.

Many churches are experiencing the same strains when it comes to keeping their congregation feeling connected during the pandemic. With CDC guidelines for social distancing, capacity limits, and the fear of exposure, many members may prefer to remain attending virtual events and services. Keep them feeling connected to your church through messaging on your LED sign.

Losing a loved one never easy. The feeling of grief can be overwhelming and at times, leave us feeling rather powerless. But by honoring the life they lived, we can ease the pain and begin to heal.

With the 2020-2021 school year quickly approaching, your school is likely deciding how to spend those last remaining budgetary dollars. The process can be tricky, and the results long lasting, serving as your foundation going into the new school year. One of the biggest mistakes made during this process, is overlooking outdoor signage.

If you are thinking about increasing school pride, school marquees are a great solution. This type of sign will allow your school to prominently display your school’s name, mission, mascot, and other important information you want to communicate to your students and staff. School marquees give your school an inviting and warm welcome at first sight.
