Watchfire Announces Winners of Fourth Annual LED Sign Awards


Ace Sign Company in Springfield, Illinois, has a history of providing innovative signage with custom features to their clients. Their recent efforts for HSHS Medical Group at a family clinic in Chatham, Illinois, earned Ace the Grand Prize in the 2018 Watchfire LED Sign Awards.

Watchfire Signs established the awards program in 2014 to recognize Watchfire dealer partners who best showcase the capabilities of outdoor digital advertising. The fourth annual awards recognize on premise signs installed in 2017 that display excellence in design, legibility of digital messages and advertising effectiveness.

The HSHS Medical sign features a vertical freestanding monolith showcasing a 16-by-16-foot, 16mm Watchfire edge wrap display. Custom content by the Ace Sign Company creative team incorporates an architectural dynamic that utilizes the capabilities of LED signage technology.

“Watchfire believes strongly in supporting our dealer partners with high quality digital signs that can be installed in many ways. 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 focus on promoting the strengths of digital advertising,” said David Warns, Watchfire’s vice president of On Premise Sales. “We all share the same goal: to bring timely, relevant advertising to mass audiences while still maintaining the artistry that has been a hallmark of sign shops for decades.

“As Watchfire and our dealers expand the products available, we want to call attention to those who are doing it best. We congratulate Ace Sign Company and all of this year’s winners.”
