Make the Most of Your School Sign Board
A school sign board is a common information display for education institutions at all levels. Yet, the design and content strategy for these displays can be quite different depending on the objectives of a particular educational institution. Nearly all start with an outdoor marquee that with their name and logo, while many also include the address, motto, mascot, and the year the institution was founded. Some schools go even further by including an electronic readerboard as part of the marquee installation and then use these readerboards to show event information, daily messages, and important upcoming dates. Indeed, many institutions miss out on this valuable resource by sticking with conventional displays that do little to market the institution to the surrounding community.
Dynamic Display Benefits
There are two main benefits of implementing digital screens:
- Dynamic displays allow for limitless content and messaging that can be scheduled in an automated rotation or updated daily through content management software.
- The high operating cost associated with the manual labor needed to change conventional signage is eliminated.
It's worth noting that most institutions, under strict budget limitations, are in a unique position to take advantage of these benefits. Since they can't justify the expense of traditional marketing and branding campaigns, a digital school sign board provides one of the only opportunities to showcase the daily and weekly programs that educate and otherwise nurture a community's youth. Likewise, dynamic displays allow education officials and administrators to greatly expand their messaging capacity and content strategies.
Interior School Sign Boards
Interior installations are less common than their outdoor counterparts but may have an even larger upside. For cash-strapped institutions, in particular, indoor locations can support digital donor walls or even advertising displays that help generate revenue. For student services, these displays can show the latest news and information about standardized testing sites, local tutor programs, extracurricular activities, and student organizations, just to name a few. Administrative offices can also use interior board signs to streamline office operations and create a more efficient, productive work environment.
