TURN-KEY! LED Sign and Electronic Signage
Manufacturing, Installation and Service since 1990.
Why Should I Buy My Listed LED Signs From Sunburst Displays™?
We are the largest LED display sign manufacturer in North Texas; one of only 3 in the entire State! We are also State licensed as both an electrical sign contractor and as an electrical contractor.
Sunburst Displays™ is an excellent sign company, we make great signs. But just being a good sign company does not necessarily mean that a company can install and service Electronic Message Centers. They may be able to weld, install fluorescent lamps and roll paint, but can they build, program and service a computer?
Digital LED electronic message centers are very complicated computers, remotely served by other computers, use proprietary software programs, and are not what most sign company employees, or electricians, understand.
But because these signs are electrical they must be installed by a qualified electrical sign company or an electrical contractor.
We know what we are doing when it comes to Electronic Message Center fabrication, installation, and service. We even carry all parts in stock for immediate replacement if something fails.
A large part of our business is repairing mistakes other sign companies and electricians made installing signs they bought and resold to their customers.
"We paid $34,000 for a full-color LED message center from Wal**** Signs & Lighting. It took them 11 months to get it installed. It is now 4 months old and has never worked in full-color mode. They don't know how to make it work. Can you fix it?"
Electronic Message Centers are usually built into additional signage, not installed by themselves (see our "Design Center" page!) Doing so makes them less expensive and more effective at the same time! But most electronic message center manufacturers do not manufacture additional types of signs.
Sunburst Displays™ makes more than just electronic message centers. We manufacture, install and service church signs, school signs, apartment signs, park signs, governmental signs, architectural signs, etc. Interior signs as well as exterior signs.
We manufacture road signs and building signs including channel letter signs (internally lighted with neon, SolarBrite™ LEDs, the new automatic color-changing SpectraLites™ LEDs, or externally lighted with first-surface LetterLites™ LEDs), neon signs, wall sign cabinets, pole signs, pylon signs, monument signs, message centers, PinLights™ LED signs, architectural signs, plastic lettering, metal lettering, trim-cap lettering, awning signs, plaques and more!
We champion brighter, energy-saving solutions that save our customers money while protecting our environment.
We have a lot of experience. Visit our Design Center to learn how we can help you - for free - design signs that will meet City, State and Landlord sign restrictions, and your needs.
Be very careful when picking your sign company. There are good ones out there, but there are far more "bargain basement" companies. Sometimes the cheapest bidder may be the best (banners, vinyl graphics, etc.) but this is not true with an LED Display.
Look at an excerpt from an article in Sign & Digital Graphics, a trade magazine, which gives advice to brokers who are purchasing this type of signage for resale:

The Sunburst LED Displays On-Location Sales Team's Personalized Service
No matter what types of signs you are interested in, our sales team, consisting of 11 highly-trained factory-employed individuals, is at your beck and call.
You will probably have a firm quotation for what you want during our
meeting; certainly no more than a day later.
Visit Our Unique LED Sign Lighting Laboratory and LED Message Board Demonstration Showroom
Unique in the entire sign industry, Sunburst Displays™ built an 85’ by 50’ (over 4,000 sq ft) indoor sign lighting laboratory for testing the longevity, visibility, and effectiveness of all the lighted signs we manufacture.
You must determine which display type and LED spacing is best, so that your sign will be successful, considering how you will use it. Therefore, 6 mm, 8 mm, 10 mm, 12 mm, 16 mm, and 19 mm 481-trillion-color LED Video Display signs are always available for you to compare to monochrome and 4-throusand-shade display signs.
Don't buy a sign from a drawing when you can actually see and compare real signs.
No one else, sign company or not, can offer you this unique opportunity. Be sure to take advantage.
"I almost made a huge mistake by not listening to you and visiting your showroom prior to buying my sign. I thought I knew what I wanted, after listening to so many salespeople...boy, was I wrong. My vision of the sign did not jibe with what it would really turn out to be, even after viewing so many drawings. It was obvious the moment I entered the showroom. If I had stuck to my guns my sign would have been a disaster. I would have wasted a lot of money."
Cecil Drake, Drake Communications
Sometimes it really pays to shop.
As an additional enticement to coax you into our showroom, and also smooth our manufacturing flow, we periodically have limited Specials only available "in-store;" even unannounced to our sales team.
They are based on opportunities in our production scheduling. If we tell our salespeople in advance they collectively sell too many, causing other problems!
Specials are always for a specific type of custom-built sign with a large variety of available options, but a very limited quantity, and first-come-first-served.

Using Our Website to Learn About Sunburst Displays™
Your sign forms that very important "first impression" your potential customer has of your business. Your sign must always look nearly as good as it looked the day it was installed so that you survive; don't give potential customers a worsening impression of your business as your sign ages.
Click on the "Technical Details" tab to the left to learn about the intricacies of an LED digital electronic message center.Also discover how we make each sign to last; including the use of CNC manufacturing, rust-proof metal, structural-steel frames, high-end automotive paint, high-impact plastics, and most importantly, sophisticated protective coatings. All our signs include these many hidden features, critically important to you but often ignored by competitors so they can make more money. We even add self-cleaning properties. View our Construction Details page to learn more about these features.
Sunburst Displays™ uses SolarBrite™ LEDs exclusively to manufacture Sunburst Displays™. Our LED Technology page explains why.
With an electronic message center you are leaving your computer out in the Texas rain, ice, heat and cold, and tornados and hurricane-force winds are trying to blow it away. Sunburst Displays™ are Built in Texas, for Texans, by us.™
But, it takes more than purchasing an excellent sign for your success. It must be installed properly, and someday in the far future hopefully, it will need to be serviced. This is why it will be important to you that WE manufacture, install and service your LED electronic message centers!
Please use and enjoy this website, the largest information resource about electronic message centers on the internet, in conjunction with our Corporate website www.SignsManufacturing.com, created so you can learn about all types of signs and how you can control their affect on your image.
We believe that if you're a knowledgeable purchaser there's a real good chance you'll become our customer.
"We are buying our next digital signs from you. It is too much effort and money to keep up with a low quality sign." - Myles Pennington II, Trinity Valley Community College
The Benefits of Buying Factory-Direct from Sunburst LED Displays™
You need answers to these questions before you buy (anything from anyone.) Don’t be a naïve consumer.
* A poorly installed EMC can void a factory warranty, leaving YOU to haggle responsibility with the installer and sign seller (broker.) For instance, without a separate grounding electrode being installed during the installation of most LED signs the manufacturer’s warranty is void. Will you know if your installer doesn’t install a grounding electrode? The problems the lack of a grounding electrode creates will probably begin to occur months later.
Is the sign installer working for you, or the factory, or only the sign seller (broker?) Who is legally responsible?
Who has the financial ability to remedy accidents and omissions? Single-source responsibility is best. Product liability insurance is good, too.
Guaranteed Highest Quality ... Guaranteed Lowest Price™
As detailed on the pages that follow, everything will be done to make your sign look better, and last longer...Guaranteed.

Why Buy Factory-Direct, and from a State-Licensed Company?
Would you give a car dealer $10,000 and tell him to buy you the best car he can for the money, sight unseen (or from a drawing?) Don't you think you would get the car that made him the most?
Do you think you could meet your needs asking for the cheapest car he can buy?
Why would a sign dealer (sign broker or sign store) be any different? Remember, they are merely buying a sign from a manufacturer, maybe foreign, to resell to you, usually to resemble a drawing, making the most money they can.
Also, most sign dealers, sign brokers and sign stores cannot legally install or service an electric sign. Ask to see their license.
Ask to see a manufacturer's license also. A few are not licensed to do electrical work, either, they also have to hire other companies to install the signs they make.
Now, who provides the warranty? The manufacturer, the installer, the salesman, anyone? If the sign was installed illegally do you think they'll honor their warranty? Did they REALLY obtain your City sign permit? Is the sign even safe?
As a large, UL listed manufacturer, our name is on all our signs. Just like you, we can't afford to have a bad sign destroy our reputation. We have to care, particularly with our LIFETIME* warranty.
If you wonder if a sign-seller can legally install and service electrical signs through-out Texas go to http://www.tdlr.texas.gov/LicenseSearch, enter "Electricians" in the "Inquire by License Type" box and the name of the sign business or person in the "Inquire by Name" box. If they are not licensed they can not.
So someone can sell you signs and not be licensed to install or service them. You may have to have this done. But unless the electrical signs you buy are "listed" (U.L. usually) they won't be allowed to be installed in Texas, a State of Texas Consumer Protection Safety Law designed to insure that signs are safe to use, with a few local city ordinance exceptions. It is not illegal to sell them to you, however. Buy carefully.
"I had a ****-a-**** (sign company) right across the street … that store's out of business now … I found out they hired some other company to build and install our sign and they did a really #@%&&$ job, the thing has never lit right. ****-a-**** Corporate won't do anything, they say the closed store was an independent franchise, and the sign builder/installer won't fix it, they say we weren't their customer. I need you to come out, tell me what it will cost to get the thing working properly and get it fixed." - Chris Jennings, Jimmy Johns
The Value of “Listed" Signs
Virtually ALL cities, as well as the State of Texas, adopt the National Electric Code as law.
The National Electric Code (NEC) requires that for electrical, structural, and installation safety all electrical signs be "Listed" (tested and labelled with an appropriate Listing Mark.)
For you the Listing Mark is insurance. It means that the sign has been tested to insure that it is structurally and electrically safe, and will be installed properly. You benefit from the knowledge that it is not solely us telling you that our signs are safe, this is what the testing laboratories and the US Government says also.
Will your sign be tested and approved for safe use in a Wet (Outdoor) location? Not if it’s not Listed!
Underwriters Laboratories (“UL” Listing Mark) and Intertek (“ETL” Listing Mark – originally Edison Testing Laboratory founded by Thomas Edison) are the premier certification organizations and 80% of all things electrical are tested by them.
If the sign you are purchasing does not have a ETL or UL Listing Mark label the sign is probably not legal to install, anywhere in Texas. There are a few local city ordinance exceptions.
Intertek is over twice the size of UL, and has a greater global presence. UL is the largest in the USA. We have both companies test and apply Listing Marks to various signs.
Whether it's channel letters, a wall cabinet sign, a monument sign, pole or pylon signs, electronic message centers, video displays, neon or other electric signs Intertek and Underwriter’s Laboratory pose the toughest design, structural, electrical, and installation standards on the products they approve.
We are the 9th oldest UL Listed Manufacturer in North Texas. (File #UXYT.E149959)
To see if a manufacturer is a UL Listed electronic sign manufacturer go to http://database.ul.com/cgi-bin/XYV/template/LISEXT/1FRAME/ccnsrch.html and enter "UYFS" in the "UL Category Code" box, replacing "%ccn%".
To see if a manufacturer is an ETL Listed sign manufacturer go to http://etlwhidirectory.etlsemko.com/WebClients/ITS/DLP/products.nsf/ and enter "UL-48" in the search box.
There are many sign companies that pretend to be Listed, but are not!
Incidentally, ISO (International Organization of Standardization) Standards, such as ISO 9001, are NOT electrical Listings (similar to a UL or ETL Listing) that allow a sign to be installed in Texas. That said, components in our electronic signs also meet ISO 9001 and 2008 standards.
Underwriter’s Laboratory and Intertek do NOT judge the appearance, appeal, or the longevity of a product. This is why our many years of experience serving international, national, regional and local customers, and our investment so that we can apply the knowledge we’ve gained, will give you a superior product which will impress your customers for years to come.
