Watchfire Announces Winners of Fifth Annual LED Sign Awards

The signage experts at Springfield Sign in Springfield, Missouri, have a can-do attitude and continually reinvest in their company to advance the sign industry. Their recent efforts for Fritz’s Adventure in Branson earned them the Grand Prize in the 2019 Watchfire LED Sign Awards.

Watchfire Signs, which has manufactured electric signs since 1932 and LED signs since 1998, established the LED Sign Awards program back in 2014 to recognize Watchfire dealer partners who best showcase the capabilities of outdoor digital advertising. The fifth annual awards recognize on premise signs installed in 2018 that display excellence in design, legibility of digital messages, and advertising effectiveness.

The winning sign at Fritz’s Adventure is a double-face custom pylon featuring a Watchfire 12mm display, backlit flat cut out letters with stand-offs, flush-mount, lighted channel letters, and custom metal fabrication. The design makes the sign stand out in Branson’s busy entertainment district.

“Watchfire understands the craftsmanship that our dealer partners use in producing high quality digital sign installations. The only limitations are their imaginations when it comes to sign designs that will have the greatest impact. We are proud to recognize our dealer partners who promote the strengths of digital advertising,” said David Warns, Watchfire’s vice president of On Premise Sales. “Watchfire understands that when our dealer partners succeed, so do we. We honor their ability to fabricate signage that delivers relevant advertising to mass audiences while still maintaining the artistry that has been a hallmark of sign shops for decades. We are proud to call attention to those who are doing it best. Congratulations to Springfield Sign and all of this year’s winners.”

Watchfire Signs has more than 60,000 Watchfire LED signs in operation worldwide and has more digital billboard customers in the U.S. than any other brand.
