Leaflets, banners, posters and papers are out of date now. It is the rising era of Digital signage. In good old days, in order to express information, to transfer massages, to display notices, and for many other information expressing needs, such kind of paper work was used. With the arrival of radio and later television, advertisements came in to seen bind with those instruments. With the development of newest technologies, now it is the time of signage.
