|8 Advantages of LED Lighting
LEDs have swept the conventional lighting marketplace for a variety of reasons, most notably their extended lifespans, reduced energy consumption and lower maintenance requirements. By 2030, the DOE estimates that LED lighting could save 190 terawatt hours of electricity per year, which equates to a whopping $15 billion. As the purchase price of lamps and fixtures continues to fall, more and more facility managers are looking to upgrade their lighting systems with LEDs, given their many benefits compared to traditional technologies. Following are eight advantages for all store decision makers to consider:
1: Energy efficiency
LED lights use about 50 percent less electricity than traditional incandescent, fluorescent and halogen options, resulting in substantial energy cost savings, especially for spaces with lights that are on for extended periods. LEDs also aim light in a specific direction unlike conventional bulbs, which emit light—and heat—in all directions (because LEDs are mounted on a flat surface, they emit light hemispherically rather than spherically). This directional lighting capability reduces wasted light and energy.
2 : Extended life
Unlike incandescent lighting, LEDs don’t “burn out” or fail, they merely dim over time. Quality LEDs have an expected lifespan of 30,000–50,000 hours or even longer, depending on the quality of the lamp or fixture. A typical incandescent bulb lasts only about 1,000 hours; a comparable compact fluorescent lasts 8,000 to 10,000 hours. With a longer operational life, LEDs can reduce labor costs of replacing bulbs in commercial situations, achieving a lower maintenance lighting system.
3:Cold temperature operation
LEDs love the cold unlike fluorescent lamps. At low temperatures, higher voltage is required to start fluorescent lamps, and luminous flux (the perceived power or intensity of light) is decreased. In contrast, LED performance increases as operating temperatures drop. This makes LEDs a natural fit for refrigerated display cases, freezers and cold storage spaces in addition to outdoor applications such as the parking lot, building perimeter and signage. DOE testing of an LED refrigerated case light measured 5 percent higher efficacy (the efficiency of a light source in lumens per-watt, like miles-per-gallon) at -5°C, compared to operation at 25°C.
4 : Durability
Without filaments or glass enclosures, LEDs are breakage resistant and largely immune to vibrations and other impacts. Traditional lighting is usually contained in a glass or quartz exterior, which can be susceptible to damage. LEDs, on the other hand, tend not to use any glass, instead they are mounted on a circuit board and connected with soldered leads that can be vulnerable to direct impact, but no more so than mobile phones and similar small electronic devices.
5 :Instant on
Most fluorescent and HID lamps do not provide full brightness the moment they’re switched on, with many requiring three minutes or more to reach maximum light output. LEDs come on at 100-percent brightness almost instantly however, and with no re-strike delay. This can be advantageous following a power outage or anytime employees open a building during early morning hours when it is still dark outside.
6 : Rapid cycling
Traditional light sources tend to have a shorter lifespan the more they’re switched on and off, whereas LEDs are unaffected by rapid cycling. In addition to flashing light displays, this capability makes LEDs well suited for use with occupancy or daylight sensors.
It can take more than a few dollars to make commercial fluorescent lighting systems dimmable, but LEDs, as semiconductor devices, are inherently compatible with controls. Some LEDs can even be dimmed to 10 percent of light output while most fluorescent lights only reach about 30 percent of full brightness. LEDs also offer continuous, opposed to step-level, dimming (where the shift from 100-to-10-percent light output is smooth and seamless, not tiered).
8:No IR or UV Emissions
Less than 10 percent of the power used by incandescent lamps is actually converted to visible light; the majority of the power is converted into infrared (IR) or radiated heat. Excessive heat and ultraviolet radiation (UV) present a burn hazard to people and materials. LEDs emit virtually no IR or UV. Rapid advancements in LED lighting technologies, with more improvements on the horizon, have resulted in lowered costs and increased reliability of LEDs. And while it may be tempting to assume LEDs are the right choice for all applications because of their energy efficiency, selection should be based on a combination of factors, including light quality and distribution, dimmability, and expected lifetime.
7 Creative Custom Hotel Signage Design Ideas to Attract Customers
What are the Creative Signage Design Ideas for Your Hotel?The following are some Ideas that you can use to come up with your own creative hotel signage. Don't forget to integrate your hotel'sambiance and brand into any design you come up with.
Creative Hotel Outdoor Signage:It starts with your outdoor signs. The signs that you hang outside of your hotel are going to be the first signs that people see when they consider using your accommodations.That means you will want a sign that showcases how people should expect to feel when they stay in your hotel. You should have a unique hotel signage font.
Unique Do Not Disturb Signs: One place that gives you an opportunity to show a lot of your personality is what you choose to put on your do not disturb signs.Niche businesses May want to consider do not just our signs with a little bit of humor, or perhaps a mildly inappropriate reference that still matches the personality of your guests.Modern hotels May want to consider an Inspiring quote Or a modern design made of an attractive would and typeface.
Door Signs with Character: You may also want to consider creating a room sign or door sign that is consistent with your brand. There are many hotels door signs that have graphics instead of numbers or branded signs instead of generic room signs. You can also create a sign in a shape that matches the look you’re trying to achieve from your company.
Hotel Indoor Signage:
The inside of the hotel is a great place to start putting up unique and creative signs. Some hotels use signs as a way of decorating, creating custom signs to match an era or time period in history. Others use a variety of indoor signs to creatively showcase where a room is, or what the purpose of the hotel is, and more.
Within Room Signs:
Finally,you're going to need to add signs in each room of your hotel. Consciously or subconsciously, the person staying at the hotel is going to notice whether or not the signs you have fit the ambiance of the property. It helps to make sure that your signs match or exceed their expectations.
Unique Hotel Signs :
There are some saucy Do Not Disturb signs out there that have a lot of creativity. But you can still be creative even with a “Safe for Work” sign. The above sign is a great example. This sign comes from an Aspen hotel, which is known for the outdoors, the barn décor, and more. Notice that custom Do Not Disturb hotel signs do not have to be shaped like the traditional door hangers. Be creative with your shapes. This is a traditional hotel sign, but it’s an amazing one.
What Is a Blade Sign?
Generally speaking, a blade sign is a sign that protrudes from the facade of a building. They are typically thin (hence the name), but they don’t technically have to be thin. The defining characteristic of a blade sign is that it is attached directly to the building (or wall) and protrudes perpendicular to the building (instead of being mounted directly on the side). Sticking out this way makes it easy for pedestrians to see the sign as they traverse a walkway. It is very common to see blade signs in a shopping plaza. In this case, blade signs mark individual stores and shops.
What Is Faux Neon?
Faux neon (or fake neon) uses low voltage LEDs to create the appearance of neon lighting - with this comes a hold load of benefits. Unlike traditional neon, faux neon can be produced in almost any shape, and can include colour changing patterns.
Key Benefits of our Faux Neon Sign Range;Faux Neon Signs can be produced in two ways - either with flexible tubing which can be fixed into the required shape, or with solid acrylic that can be cut to shape.

What Does Plate Signed Mean?
When an artist scratches their name into the metal etching plate or uses a lithograph crayon to sign their name onto a lithograph plate, the prints that come from those plates are said to be “plate signes”. “Plate signed” and “signed in the plate” mean the same thing. (The term "plated signs" is in contrast to “hand signed”, where an artist signs each print in pencil, crayon, ink, or some other medium. Hand signed prints are usually numbered.) When an artist places their signature on an etching or lithograph plate, they often write backwards so that the prints have their signature in the correct orientation. Artists also occasionally sign forwards, which means the prints have the signatures in reverse. There are even methods such as using lithographic transfer paper to allow an artist to sign forwards and still get a signature on the print that reads in the proper direction. All are acceptable forms for generating works that are “plate signed”. Many artists in the late 19th and early 20th centuries used a monogram on the plate instead of a signature.Since many lithographs are printed using flat limestone as the"plate", the term “signed in the stroe means the same thing as "signed in the plate"
