Restaurants love the additional customers that bright neon signs attract, but hate the maintenance hassles, aesthetic challenges, high costs, and safety hazards associated with high voltage glass neon products. According to Optiva, the solution to all of that is SpellBrite, a "click-together" LED signage system consisting of individual letters, numbers and symbols.
Restaurants can attract more customers by creating unique, targeted signs featuring products and services offered, specials, phone numbers, lunch combos, seasonal promotions, websites, extended business hours or any other custom messages. No other signage medium offers the flexibility and customer drawing impact of SpellBrite, said Sean Callahan, CEO of Optiva.
"Bright illuminated signs attract more customers because they capture the attention of your prospects – the human eye is drawn to light 5 to 6 times the ambient level," he said. "Printed signs lack impact in the day and fade away at night. The traditional light source for bright signs, neon, is fraught with numerous issues. That's why we invented SpellBrite."
In addition to being named Retailer Top Pick by retailers at the 2012 NACS trade show and Best New Product at the 2012 ISA International Sign Expo, SpellBrite won positive reviews from top chains at this year's National Restaurant Association Show.

Interchangeable "click-together" letters offer versatility
SpellBrite is designed to make it easy and affordable for entrepreneurs and franchise operators to create and change illuminated signs which attract more customers and enhance the look of their establishment, said Callahan. Features and benefits include:
