Despite being electrically powered signage (with ongoing load shedding issues endured), neon signs, illuminated signs, and LED signs are the 7th most searched for sign category on the Signarama website. Signarama franchisees from seven stores recently got together at Signarama West Rand for a neon and LED flex product masterclass.
Based on this demand, and after an analysis of what future trends are likely to be for illuminated signs, the Signarama Franchise Office teamed up with Nick Galatis and the team at the The Lighting Zone to run the neon and LED flex masterclass.
All the masterclass attendees were able to manufacture an LED flex sign from start to finish. The masterclass began with some insights from Nick Galatis into the products, their correct use and the common problems associated with them. The Lighting Zone are approved suppliers for the Signarama franchise. The fun part of the masterclass came in choosing colours for the signs, soldering the intricate wiring, inserting LED’s and connecting them to a power supply.
The event concluded with some refreshments and a prize giving for the best sign manufactured on the day. Those franchisees and staff who attended left with a better appreciation for the products and how to make the right recommendations to Signarama clients.
