Visit Our Unique Sign Lighting Laboratory and Demonstration Showroom with LED Video Displays
Unique in the entire sign industry, Signs Manufacturing™ 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.
We have opened our laboratory to the public, for FREE, adding a Sign Showroom that includes LED Video Displays because we realized how important one would be to consumers.
How will shadows affect my sign's readability during the day? Should the wall behind my sign be light or dark colored? Would a different type of sign look better on my brick wall? Should I consider a routed sign face with push-through letters?
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. Your business will be better because you do. If you don't visit it could cost you thousands every year. Can you afford not to?

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.)
Certification (testing and labelling) organizations acceptable in the USA to test to the multitude of Standards signs are required to meet are determined by OSHA.
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!
Underwriter's Laboratory (“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.
We are the third oldest ETL Listed sign company in Texas. ( File #4007685) (One of the two older companies makes lighted scoreboards, the other makes lighted office door signs.)
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, ISO 9001, ISO 14001, and RoHS 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.
Radio Frequency (RF) interference from an electronic sign can cause the sign to interfere with radios, cell phones, radar, TV signals, automatic door openers, hospital equipment, etc.
Radio frequency interference can also cause radios, cell phones, radar, automatic door openers, TV signals, hospital equipment, etc. to interfere with an electronic sign.
Although not required in the United States, Sunburst Displays™ had our electronic signs tested for Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) and Electromagnetic Interference (EMI), even testing beyond the rigorous European standards.
Our non-intrusive circuitry even protects itself, rebooting the sign automatically if an extreme circumstance interferes with our sign.
This assures you of an even-more-trouble-free sign when you purchase from Sunburst Displays™.
UL listed Sign Component
Underwriter's Laboratory has evaluated our sister products PinLights™ and LetterLites™ and they have been approved for use in outdoor, damp and wet location signs.
UL Approval #E345252.
They are the only approved individual LED first-surface lighting products.
As the manufacturer we are very proud of this.
Authority Listed Signs
Good signs require more than sound
mechanical and electrical design.
Laboratory and other listing companies test and approve
mechanical, electrical, and installation aspects of sign
manufacturing, only the Electric Sign Authority (ESA)
supervises the design, marketing appeal, appearance, and
longevity of signs.
Look for the Electric
Signs Authority (ESA) Listing Label (right) in the
advertising of Sign Companies committed to providing their
customers with a better advertising and marketing product
that will look good for years.
Our ESA Listing number is: ESA107474.

Electrical Sign Design Safety
It is a criminal offense in Texas for a unlicensed individual to design an
electrical sign, or an electrical system. A licensed Master Sign Electrician or
Master Electrician is required, or a design company approved by statute,
regardless of whether the signs was manufactured within or outside of Texas. We have both
Master types involved in designing our signs. Our employee's State of Texas Electrical
and Sign Master License numbers are: 00002753, 00007305 and 00238434.
If you wonder if a sign-seller can legally design,
install and service electrical signs in Texas go to
enter "Electricians" in the "Inquire by License Type" box and the name of the
sign business or person in the "Inquire by Name" box.

“Our business was
slowly fading away. We read what your web site says
about old signs having a negative effect on a business.
Our sign certainly was old, so we decided to call you and
invest in a new sign. WOW. Your new sign
doubled our business! Our grand kids thank you.”
Nancy Jackson, Perfect Cleaners
Even though a sign
may have looked good when new, as it visibly ages it no
longer helps you gain customers. It drives potential
new customers, and existing customers, away. The
Small Business Development Center (one page up) has
observed that aging signs is a key reason that
once-successful businesses fail.

In a study of 10 year
old local Dallas/Ft. Worth businesses, it was observed
that a significantly larger number of businesses who had
their signs manufactured by Signs Manufacturing™ were still
in business (compared to businesses served by other sign
manufacturers identified during the study.)
While it is tempting
(to BOTH the purchaser and the sign manufacturer) to save
money now by not investing in the future it is a terrible
mistake which the SBDC says practically assures failure
sometime down the road!
sign companies that do not offer the features we offer, or
downplay these features, only do so because they can not
provide them. They haven’t invested for your future.
Products We've Introduced to Use on Signage
"All sign companies do the same thing!" Our customers say that other sign companies use this line a lot when asked to explain what they do differently to make their signs superior.
Through years of research we have introduced many quality products to use on signage. Most remain unused by other sign companies because they have no idea where to obtain them. Some of these products are:
Vacuum Ceramic Microsphere Coatings
Waterproof Whole-sign Interior Coatings to Protect Electronic Components and Wiring
Flame Suppression Coating Systems
Spray-On Metal Coatings
Optical Brighteners for Plastics
UV Protective Coatings for Plastics
Self-Cleaning Sign-Face Coatings for Plastics
Vandal Resistant Coatings
