Budget-Friendly Outdoor Reader Boards
Outdoor reader board signs are a simple yet classic way to publicize news and information to people walking or driving by. Make your latest announcements easy to read by using a marquee letter board. These traditional display boards are still used and popular today because they're easy to use and offer some old-school charm, unlike more digital contemporary advertising. Browse our value line of outdoor reader boards to find a wall mount or free standing marquee sign that fits your needs and budget.
Each exterior reader board comes with a set of 300 4” black letters and red numbers so you can spell out any message. You can also purchase additional letter sets in different sizes, including 2”, 3.5”, 4”, and 6”. These letters slide into the tracks on the marquee board with minimal effort, making these signs great for buyers who need to update their postings frequently.
Built to Withstand the Outdoor Elements
Each outdoor marquee display board in our collection resists weather damage. It's built for long-term use in any outdoor environment, from universities, retail stores, churches, community centers, parks, sports grounds, and other locations you’d like to display a changeable message. Our enclosed reader boards feature a weather-resistant aluminum cabinet, weep holes to drain water and prevent condensation, and a moisture-blocking silicone sealant. Each of these features protects against weather damage, so your outdoor changeable letter sign stays looking as good as new even with daily outdoor use. In addition, you can choose a weather resistant frame finish that complements surrounding fixtures, including black, satin silver, bronze, satin gold, and white.
Beyond protecting your marquee letter board from weather damage, break-resistant acrylic or tempered glass windows prevent the public from altering your interior message. In addition, some of our marquee readerboard signs include a security cam-lock and key for extra protection against tampering. Once unlocked, the top hinge allows you to swing open the case from the bottom to access the letterboard and insert your necessary letters. Prop arms keep your case open to make it easier to change your letters.
Wall Mount or Free Standing Options
When it comes to getting your announcements and advertisements noticed, height can help. Our free standing marquee display boards come with 8’ posts, so your sign is visible above crowds and from a distance. Tall free standing signs are excellent for use in outdoor areas like school grounds, shopping centers, nature preserves, and community centers. Pre-drilled holes are provided on the posts so you can mount the display case with ease. Each pole should be inserted at least 3 feet into the ground to ensure stability and safety.
While the height of freestanding reader boards attracts attention, wall mounted marquee boards are more useful in some settings. For example, with a wall-mounted changeable letter board, you can hang the notice board outside your storefront, library, office, or visitor center to display your schedule or hours of operation before patrons enter your establishment.
Customize Your Reader Board with Message Headers and LED Lighting
A personalized message header is a great way to set your message board apart from others. We can print any message you’d like in uppercase black Helvetic lettering for no additional charge when you select a marquee board with a header. For example, your header can present your town, school, sports team, business, or church name, or use any general title. Additionally, we can print your specific logo or use a special font and color on your message header for an upcharge. Or choose to leave the header blank if you’d like to print it yourself or elsewhere.
Consider selecting an outdoor reader board with LED lighting to keep your announcements visible at nighttime. These long-lasting and energy-efficient LED lights are installed on the top of the frame or along the entire perimeter; either lighting option will undoubtedly have passersby stopping to view your message. LED lighting illuminates your sign and is readable, even if there aren't many nearby light sources when displaying important information outdoors.
