Electronic Message Centers 

Electronic Message Centers, also know as digital displays or digital message centers, can grab the attention you need from drive-by traffic, as well as clearly and easily communicate ever-changing information to your audience.


An electronic message center is an LED illuminated sign, in varying sizes. EMCs can either be monochromatic or full color. Sign graphics usually change or scroll and can be controlled remotely from a host computer.


Often, you will see a traditional backlit sign combined with an electronic message center on the bottom.  Much of our curated work in the photo gallery above will show this ideal combination of signage. 


We will help you figure our the correct size and millimeter to optimize your electronic message center's visibility and customize your message center by providing you multiple options to choose from.


Once you've selected your message center sizing and design, we will install the electronic display following all of the OSHA guidelines and protocols for safety. We often see sign installation not meeting the appropriate safety expectations. We install signage in northeastern Illinois and southeastern Wisconsin.


Our Burli Signs electronic message center expert, Britt Spankowski, can provide you and your team with training you on how to operate the message center. This is a vital aspect that is often overlooked when choosing a sign company as many sign companies do not provide any training for the message center.

Important questions to ask a sign company before selecting one:

1. Do you provide in-depth training on how to use the digital message center? We will train your team on all software. The vast majority of sign companies DO NOT provide training. Be sure to ask. 

2. What type of warranty to you provide on the message center? We have a one year warranty on all signs.

3. Do you provide "visibility analytics" to ensure the electronic display can be viewed optimally from the street (or other specific location)? We will supply you with a rendering of your sign digitally placed at your location.

4. Do you meet OSHA guidelines when installing signs? We go above and beyond to ensure the safety of our employees and the public during installation.
