How can I choose the right sign based on Viewing Distance?

Generally speaking, signs with a smaller pixel, such as our P10, P8 and P6 are best for close viewing distances. Greater pixel, like our P20, is better for locations where the sign will be installed at a great height or are farther away from traffic audience.
